A white supremacist who killed a postal worker and wounded five people at a Los Angeles area Jewish community center in a 1999 shooting spree says he has renounced his racist views. In a letter to a Los Angeles Daily News reporter, Buford O. Furrow Jr. says he regrets the pain he has caused. Furrow, who is serving a life sentence with no chance of parole, describes himself as a "model inmate who has shunned criminal activity." He says he has thrown away his neo-Nazi literature and now believes "a life based on hate is no life at all." Ten years ago Furrow wounded three little children, a teenager and an adult at a Granada Hills community center. He later killed letter carrier Joseph S. Ileto.
