The shooting in Kansas City that ended with two adults and one teen dead is now being investigated as a hate crime — that's according to authorities in the area. 

Miller's personal website features multiple offensive rants.

Miller has a long and public history of violent hate speech and anti-Semitic commentary that includes everything from time in federal prison to founding a KKK chapter. (Via KNTV

Miller often used political elections to spread his hate speech on a public platform, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. SPLC keeps track of white supremacist leaders and says Miller staged three different political campaigns running as both a Democrat and a Republican. 

He ran for Governor of North Carolina in 1984, U.S. Senate in North Carolina in 1986 and just 8 years ago, he ran for Congress in Missouri. Here's a piece of one of his political ads back in 2006.

Miller goes on to use terms that are racist toward African-Americans. Miller's decades-long campaign against minorities has also landed him in legal trouble in the past. 

"In 1987 he started mailing white supremacist information to homes. The FBI reportedly tear gassed him out of a mobile home. They found hand grenades loaded weapons and ammunition." (Via KSHB)

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Miller did three years in federal prison for planning to assassinate SPLC's founder, Morris Dees. 

Miller is currently in the Johnson County Detention Center on first-degree premeditated murder charges.
