In West Los Angeles, Tim—a self-described racist—says he spent his teenage years terrorizing his neighborhood through violent crimes. In his 20s, Tim joined the White Aryan Resistance, a neo-Nazi group. Tim says their list of enemies included homosexuals, African-Americans, Hispanics and white liberal "race traitors."

His hatred exploded in a vicious attack on an Iranian couple, whom Tim mistook for Jewish.

The case made headlines, and Tim served a year in jail.

"When you're involved with that sort of a lifestyle … you see the enemy everywhere," he says.
