Three people died in shootings at two Jewish facilities outside Kansas City on Sunday. Police arrested Frazier Glenn Miller, who is the founder and former leader of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party, on charges of pre-meditated murder shortly after the shootings. The date of the attacks, April 13, brought to mind several other violent attacks on U.S. soil that have all occurred around the same time of year.
