Former teacher says James Fields Jr. was denied enlistment in Army
WCPO Cincinnati - Sunday, 13 August 2017
A man who taught history to James Fields Jr. says the murder suspect was not allowed to enlist in the Army because of his mental health history. Derek Weimer, who taught history to Fields at Randall K. Cooper High School in Union, Kentucky, said he was a quiet, respectful student but had some "radical ideas on race." Fields also was "very infatuated" with Nazis and Adolf Hitler, Weimer said.
