Anti-Semitism in some parts is apparently so rampant, it’s enough to have a Jewish sounding name for your life to be in danger. A couple of rampaging murderers who are up for several murders in Oregon and California, said in a jailhouse interview after their arrest that one of their victims, Cody Myers, was killed because he had a “Jewish sounding” last name. Myers happened to be a devout but extremely unlucky Christian.

Joey Pedersen and his girlfriend, Holly Grigsby, both with ties to white supremacists, are accused of killing Pedersen’s estranged father, David “Red” Pedersen and his wife, Leslie “DeeDee” Pedersen, in September. They are expected to receive life in prison after pleading guilty Monday to two counts of aggravated murder.

The Daily Herald of Everett, Wash. reports Joey Pedersen offered no explanation for his act of extreme violence. But he made a joke at the hearing that he was promised a double Whopper cheeseburger if he took the guilty plea.
