Curtis Michael Allgier, known as “Wood”, is a white supremacist skin head best known for his mugshot. (Yes, he’s the heavily tattooed guy with the words Skin Head tattooed right on his forehead and a boot tattooed on his nose). Let's not forget the PROPERTY OF JOLENE tattoo on his head...it's too bad he's now divorced from Jolene. He’s been dubbed “The Face of Hate” by The Southern Poverty Law Center.
Allgier had been getting in trouble since 1998, for things like theft, reckless driving, felony burglary, forgery, carrying a concealed handgun, etc.
In 2001, after getting in some trouble Allgier tried to flee. This led to a one-to-15-year sentence. Paroled in May 2003, he then was arrested and sent back to prison in July 2004 for traveling to California without authorization, and possessing two knives. He was paroled in October 2006, serving another 27 months in prison.
Then in November, he became a fugitive on a parole violation for two days before a Salt Lake City SWAT team arrested him at a local hotel. Allgier, armed, barricaded himself for a time inside a room but was captured after falling through the hotel's ceiling, where he had tried to hide. On June 14, 2007, he was sentenced to 104 months in prison for being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. It was during the course of this incarceration that the 2007 Salt Lake City murder occurred.
On the morning of June 25, 2007, Anderson escorted Allgier to the University of Utah, where Allgier was scheduled for an MRI, because he had been complaining of back problems. While waiting with Anderson in an examination room at the university's orthopedic center, Allgier was unshackled. He then overpowered and disarmed Anderson and shot him in the head, although Allgier later stated that the gun went off accidentally during the struggle.
After fleeing the clinic on foot, Allgier carjacked a Ford Explorer, and led police on a high-speed chase. Allgier was captured at an Arby's restaurant a few miles away, where he tried to shoot an employee but the gun malfunctioned. Eric Fullerton, a former Army paratrooper, tackled and held him until the police arrived.
Allgier avoided the death penalty when he pleaded guilty and got a life sentence instead. He’s being held in a Maximum Security prison in Idaho. He made news again when a Hispanic woman named Erica Herrera came forward saying the two were to marry, which Allgier vehemently denied. Because why would a white supremacist be marrying a Hispanic woman, right? But then…ironically enough, Allgier set up a WriteAPrisoner account where he’s asking anyone for help.
"I’m fighting an appeal and need immediate legal help, both criminal and civil issues, computer savvy help, entrepreneurial intelligence; to help make a difference for the betterment of the whole! Any race, sexual orientation, big, tall, little, small I got love for all who are loving, generous, unselfish, helping and sincere! Odhinn bless you! Ryde with me!”
A self-proclaimed White Supremacist skin head is asking for help from any race. Interesting!
