(Scroll down for video) A white supremacist who was looking to murder Jews, was sentenced to four life terms in prison, prosecutors in Oregon said.
Senior District Judge Ancer Haggerty, sentence 34-year-old David “Joey” Pedersen to two life sentences in prison without parole for the murders and carjacking of 19-year-old Cody Faye Myers, and 53-year-old Reginald Alan Clark.
Pedersen will serve the two terms concurrently with two additional life terms in prison he received in Washington, for the murder of his father, David “Red” Pedersen, and his stepmother, Leslie “DeeDee” Pedersen.
Pedersen and his girlfriend Holly Ann Grigsby, killed, stole cars and used credit cards to finance their plan to destroy Jewish organizations.
Grigsby was sentenced to life imprisonment last month.
At sentencing, Pedersen said: “I can only laugh with sarcasm that I sit here being convicted of crimes that the United States government has accused me.”
He also criticized the government’s support of Israel, the use of drones and civilian deaths in Iraq. Pedersen defended his actions, saying that he regretted he did not make more progress in his revolution.
