Did a Candy-Ass Gang Member Plan to Murder a Mexican Months Before Their Slater Slum Smackdown?
|Hicks: The Stupidest Skinhead|
"They're getting railroaded," whined Martin Cox, perhaps Orange County's most notorious skinhead due to his many appearance on British and American documentaries, on the July 17 edition of his Internet radio show, 88 Degrees. "[They face an] uphill battle, we all wish [them] the best. It's a case of self-defense."
Why is Cox so interested in the case? Because he and Hicks are close friends--indeed, Hicks was set to join Cox's infamous hatecore band Extreme Hatred until the idiot blew his self-professed dream by getting sent to jail. The two are so close that Hicks co-hosted 88 Degrees with Cox for months, going so far as to produce fliers for the program that airs every Friday night on Orange-based Radio White, one of the country's oldest white-power radio stations.
It's on this show that a Weekly investigation has discovered that the Candy-Ass Gang had good motive to commit the crime prosecutors have charged them with--namely, Hicks said it was time to go kill Mexicans.

"No more Mr. Nice Guy," Cox replied. "It's coming." But Cox emphasized to listeners that the true enemy weren't blacks and Mexicans but rather the Jews and other internationalists that ruled the world. Minorities, he said, were "like a side project. They can be cleaned up in a weekend."
"Exactly," Hicks said, who had recently moved to Huntington Beach from Riverside. "That's, that's personal shit. That's stuff to do in your own personal neighborhood, take care of that yourself."
Hicks continued to rile himself up a couple of minutes later. "Let's make a difference," he growled to his audience. "If we don't stand up and take care of what we need to do right now, I think we're going to lose. We need to do this now. NOW. It is the time."

At that point, Hicks caught himself, and slowly stated, "Well, allegedly, we'd all go out and commit hate crimes. Allegedly."
He laughed. "It's not a hate crime if you love doing it," Hicks concluded.
The Candy-Ass Gang's next court date is Oct. 23. Hicks remains in prison on $500,000 bail.
