NL- I didn’t post this because there is a porn connection. I posted this because of his face. How could this guy EVER do anything but live a life of crime after he did this to his face? Obviously he is not a bright light in the intelligence department, but he had many of these tattoos for years, before he was a murderer. I can’t imagine that he could he make a legal living. Would you want him to make your Big Mac? Stupid. What turns a person from a child growing up, into a racist skin head? This has always been really interesting to me. If it is to you also, let me know in comments. I might want to do a couple stories on it.

Here’s an explanation of the meaning behind some the arcane symbols inked on the alleged cop-killer’s visage:
Crucified Skinhead (right cheek) –– The image of a skinhead on a cross symbolizes the persecution of working-class skinheads by the upper class.
Three Intersecting Triangles (right jaw) –– This symbol is known as a valknut or volknut. Among non-racist pagans, it’s a sign of the afterlife and a binding of the soul to Odin, chief among the Norse gods. Among racist pagans, it signifies “that one is ready to be taken into the ranks of Odin’s chosen warriors.”
5150 (under the right eye) –– A likely reference to the California statute that allows people to be involuntarily committed to a mental hospital if they are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others, according to Mark Pitcavage of the Anti-Defamation League.
Hatebreed (upper lip) –– Hatebreed is a hardcore punk band popular among racist skinheads.
Iron Crosses (forehead temples) –– A German military decoration dating to the early 19th century that was made famous by the Nazis.
SS Lightning Bolts (jawbones) –– A symbol of the Schutzstaffel (“Protective Squadron”), or SS, the Nazi police force that administered the death camps and staffed the mobile killing units known as Einsatzgruppen. After the war, the entire SS was declared a criminal organization by the Nuremburg judges.
Blood, Honor, and Loyalty (collarbone) –– A phrase used heavily by racist skinheads and other neo-Nazis in rock lyrics, clothing and tattoos.
SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah inmate covered in neo-Nazi tattoos was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole Wednesday for killing a prison guard during a doctor’s appointment five years ago, then leading police on a high-speed chase that ended at a fast-food restaurant, where a customer wrestled a gun from him.
Curtis Allgier offered a rambling statement that mixed apology and a tribute to his victim with a rebuttal of the evidence against him, while cursing and ranting against the court system and his lawyers.
"I apologize from the bottom of my heart. I didn’t want to hurt anybody. It was an accident," the 33-year-old inmate said at the hearing.
He added, "Just because I’ve got tattoos on my face and I’m proud of my race, I’m not some violent monster."
Prosecutors said the June 25, 2007, shooting was no accident. Allgier wrestled a gun from Stephen Anderson of Bluffdale after being unshackled for an MRI scan at a University of Utah medical clinic, they said. He then fled on foot and stole a vehicle before leading police on a highway chase at speeds exceeding 100 mph.
His freedom lasted 45 minutes.
Allgier pleaded no contest in October to aggravated murder. He pleaded guilty to additional charges of disarming a peace officer, aggravated escape, aggravated robbery and possession of a firearm by a restricted person.
The plea deal spared Allgier a trial and the death penalty if convicted.
Third District Judge Paul Maughan opened the sentencing hearing to family members of Anderson, a 22-year employee of the Utah Department of Corrections. Anderson, 60, was survived by a wife, five adult children and 18 grandchildren.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported that a daughter of Anderson’s said it was "impossible to replace a man like my father."
The chase ended after Allgier got a flat tire and ran into an Arby’s restaurant, where Eric Fullerton, 59, had just ordered a ham-and-cheese croissant and orange juice for breakfast.
Fullerton "went into action," grabbing the much larger Allgier by an arm and forcing him to drop the gun. Allgier punched Fullerton and then slashed his throat with a knife before finally surrendering to police.
"I didn’t feel pain," Fullerton said at a 2010 court hearing. "I did feel the coldness of the blade, and I heard the sound."
In court Wednesday, prosecutors called Fullerton a hero.
