42 years ago He Was Filled with Hate and Anger

40-year-old spree killer George Banks shoots 13 people including three of his girlfriends and five of his children to death with a Colt AR-15 semi-automatic rifle in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States.

Banks said he killed his children because he felt they would be tormented by the cruelty of racial views against mixed-race children. Since his conviction Banks has tried to kill himself four times and has gone on hunger strikes that required him to be force-fed.
