White Supremacist Suspected of Stabbing Black Man Denies Accusation

Channel 10 news (KSAZ-TV) aired a jailhouse interview last week with Chad Kerns, the tattooed white supremacist accused of stabbing a black man at a Walgreen's store.

Without ever getting too specific, Kerns says he was at the scene of the crime with other suspects but didn't assault anyone. Kerns, who sports a beard and sorrowful expression in the interview, looks like an average white guy -- except for the tattoos on his face.

Kern tells Fox News Phoenix that while he once was affiliated with a white supremacist "movement," it was just politics and had nothing to do with any street gang activities.

"I've moved on from that stuff," he tells Channel 10. Meanwhile, a relative of Kern's writes New Times that Kern has a new wife and baby:

DML says: Chad has made his mistakes. Yes. But he is doing his best to change. He is my nephews father and now has a wife and another baby which he loves and wants to be there for. Regardless, he does do his best and what he can to be a good part of this society aside from his wifes and kids lives. And this comes from someone that would almost like to see him locked up for a long time, but does believe he has 'changed'. Don't judge a book by its cover. More 'power' to you, Chad! (I am not 'White Power" BTW)

The trial against Kerns and three other suspects is planned for September. Meantime, it seems like Kerns could benefit from a good laser.
