After an Oklahoma woman tore down one of two large Nazi battle flags displayed outside her neighbour’s home he shot her several times in the back, according to a court report.
Kyndal McVey is now suing Alexander Feaster for acting with “reckless disregard” in connection with the shooting just before 3pm on June 28 last year.
Ms McVey, 26, was at a party across from Feaster’s home in the small town of Hunter when she saw the flags.
She was on her way back to the party when Feaster emerged from his house and fired an assault rifle, striking her in the back and legs at least four times.
Following an emergency call from one of the other party guests, police arrived at the scene and arrested Feaster, 45, charging him with assault with a deadly weapon and shooting with intent to kill.
He was released on a $75,000 bail and he is due to return to court on the criminal charge on March 5.
The incident was captured on Feaster’s own CCTV and arresting officers found evidence that he had been laying in wait near his front door for some considerable time in expectation of someone interfering with his flag display, reports The Smoking Gun.
Feaster, who describes himself as a “patriotic American,” claims he “acted in self-defence” when he shot the woman in the back, telling police he believed he was in “imminent danger of death or great bodily harm.”
Ms McVey’s injuries required extensive surgical treatment and several weeks in hospital.
She is suing Feaster for over $75,000 in damages for “mental and physical pain and suffering,” medical expenses, lost time, and “change in physical and mental condition.”
But Feaster maintains that Ms McVey is the real criminal and that he has been the victim of a hate crime.
He says he should be discriminate against because of his Nazi beliefs.
He explained in court affidavit that while he “does not subscribe to all the tenets of National Socialism,” Feaster “believes that the United States’ economic situation, as it is now, is not dissimilar from the Weimar Republic of Germany in the early 1930’s when Adolf Hitler was elected Chancellor.”
