Reformed Neo Nazi

  In this 2009 photo, National Socialist Movement members from left, Bret Murphy, Andrew Patterson, Eric Harlan pose for a photo in Medford, Ore. In 2003, Andrew Lee Patterson and two fellow neo-Nazis beat up two homeless men and an East Indian motel owner. After his release from prison six years later, Patterson was proudly proclaiming himself a National Socialist leader in Oregon. Patterson recently moved into this Southern Oregon town, where he operates a martial arts center. Many of his students are kids. Patterson says he has abandoned his neo-Nazi beliefs and he wants to "contribute something positive to the community." But some residents are asking whether Patterson has really changed.
