|God, Country and Family. Redding, Califoria.|
As we drive into town, the shopping malls alongside the freeways seem to be busy and we arrive in Redding around 4pm and decide to take a walk around downtown. Hardly a soul in sight apart from a few homeless people and a few people buying takeaways.
We met a guy who asked for some change, we started talking and he turned out to be a white racist. Having spent 10 years in Prison, he was proud of his tattoos, showing us this one on his back, inscribed "God, Country, Family". His dream was to ride a horse through Ireland.
When we got back to the motel we found out that Redding had a infamous double murder in 1999.
Gary Matson and Winfield Mowder were a gay couple who were murdered by white supremacist brothers Benjamin Matthew Williams and James Tyler Williams. The Williams brothers confessed killing the couple because they were gay.
