A Pembroke, NH tattoo artist and metal singer decided the pressure was too much after the handwriting on his gun permit was matched to vile racist graffiti he left on the homes of three African immigrants in 2011. 43 year-old Raymond Stephens, who describes himself on his Facebook page as an “animal lover,” an “environmentalist,” a “proud Aryan man,” and “one outspoken Mother-F**ker,” is very proud of his race — so proud, in fact, that he has spent quite a few man hours posting hateful photos and rants targeting President Obama and various racial groups.
He is also a very active member of various white supremacist groups, according to police. The lead singer of the terrible metal band, Invertecrux, has some interesting thoughts on race as well:
“I hate the argument that we cant help what race we were born into, and therefor you should not be proud of your race (unless your a minority). you are allowed to be proud of your race when you can look at your self and say . i am born in to a fine line of men and women that did stupendously miraculous things with the world around them…if your culture produced many advances before you, it will be likely passed down into you. when your born into a third world nation, you wouldn’t understand that. being that you look at the people of your kind that came before you and see they built nearly nothing in the same time span of other more successful races.”
With his ignorant viewpoint of those who come from third world nations, it is no surprise that he targeted the homes of refugees from the Congo, Rwanda, and Somalia with his hateful screeds. One such example of his messages can be seen below, written in Sharpie on the side of a victim’s home in September 2011:
Police also suspect that he is linked to additional vandalism of a Somali family’s house last August, describing the occupants as “primitive beasts” and “scum,” along with a message about certain racial groups instigating crime — just like the 2011 vandalism.
Stephens was charged in October of this year with one Class B felony for criminal mischief, which can net his “proud Aryan” self 1-7 years in prison–or more, because of a hate crime statute.
Apparently, unable to deal with the pressure of answering for his hateful crimes, Stephens walked into a local cemetery and shot himself at least once in the head, according to the Concord Monitor. Stephens, showing the same propensity for failure as he does at being a decent human being, was not successful in his attempt to escape justice.
The prosecution has filed a motion for the revocation of Stephens’ bail, as one condition was that he refrain from possessing or using a firearm.
Stephens’ current medical condition is unknown, as hospital staff is prevented from disclosing his information, or confirming that he is a patient.
Please take a moment to listen to Mr. Stephens serenade you with his awesome band’s awesome music! This hot…whatever it is…(album?) contains hit songs like “Lured By the Scent of Infants Blood,” “Hurt Whores,” and “Virgin Reaper.” You are hereby challenged to listen to the entire thing without vomiting or experiencing cerebral dysentery. Enjoy!
