T.J. Leyden used to cruise the streets of the San Fernando Valley with a carload of skinheads and a case of Budweiser as he looked for somebody to beat up. He would get a rush, he said, from leaving a man bloody on the curb. But after being arrested and stabbed and, most important, getting married, Leyden said he gave up that life, and on Tuesday he transfixed an audience of 200 as he expounded upon the roots of hate.

Less than a week after Agoura residents reported finding anti-Semitic leaflets labeled with an Internet address in their mailboxes, a West Hills synagogue was vandalized with graffiti that included the same Web address, that of a white supremacy group. The graffiti were discovered Friday morning on an exterior wall at Temple Solael on Valley Circle Boulevard, said Bob Howe, a detective supervisor at the West Valley division of the Los Angeles Police Department.

A hate group first discovered in Costa Mesa six years ago is now believed to be the fastest-growing white supremacist gang in California and a major player in the methamphetamine drug trade, according to a report released Thursday. The study--the most extensive to date of the Nazi Lowrider gang--was prepared by the Anti-Defamation League using state and federal crime data. It was presented Thursday in Santa Ana by the sheriffs of Orange and Los Angeles counties.

Jeffrey Lee Campbell was 33, fresh out of prison and covered with tattoos when he met Justin Bertone, a rebellious 16-year-old whose smart mouth and erratic behavior were about to get him kicked out of Verdugo Hills High School. Their unlikely friendship--built on a shared hatred of ethnic minorities--began at a high school "kegger" party three years ago and, authorities allege, culminated in a criminal conspiracy.

In April 1928, William Dudley Pelley spent seven minutes with God in Altadena and emerged with a vision of Utopia and a fondness for sidearms. His close encounter with the Creator, he later said, unlocked "secret powers" that led to the founding of the Silver Shirt Legion, a religious and political movement that blended American religious enthusiasm with the politics of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party.

Today, most people regard the remnant Ku Klux Klan as an artifact of the Jim Crow South. But in the 1920s and 1930s, the so-called Invisible Empire's bigoted tentacles spread throughout Southern California. Throughout those years, the klan used its hatred of blacks, Jews, Catholics, immigrants, bootleggers and union workers to place its adherents in city council seats, on court benches and in police departments throughout the region.
