Yahweh Ben Yahweh
NFL PLAYER CONVICTED IN 8 RACIALLY MOTIVATED KILLINGS:
Former NFL player Robert Rozier
was a former University of California defensive lineman. He played six games
for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1979 before his career fizzled out due to allegations
of drug use and petty crime.
By 1986, he was reborn as ‘Neariah
Isarel,’ “Child Of God.” To prove himself to the cult leader, Yahweh Ben Yahweh,
Rozier descended into Miami’s Coconut Grove and repeatedly stabbed an intoxicated
man and his roommate until they died. He ultimately pleaded guilty to four other
murders in Florida and confessed to three more.
Rozier, 49, was living anonymously
in Cameron Park when deputies arrested him for bouncing checks. After
serving ten years in prison, Rozier was set free with a new identity in 1996
(witness protection program) his reward for testifying against Yahweh Ben.
Yahweh and other leaders of
a sect blamed for at least 23 killings and a series of firebombings in the 1980’s. A homeless white man was found stabbed 8 times outside the
cult's temple in Newark in 1984.
Rozier said he was mesmerized
into violence by Yahweh Ben Yahweh who called himself “God the son of God.”
Rozier said he was ordered to kill by “a very intelligent Hannibal Lecter” who
claimed he was “God on planet Earth.”
“It was hammered into us 15
to 16 hours a day about men being lynched and women being smashed down and babies
being torn open,” Rozier said. “Isn’t that how they trained the Marines, by
dehumanizing the enemy?”
The cult was considered a black
supremacist sect because the victims were white. During the 80’s, the cult allegedly
tortured, raped and murdered numerous white men and women and is suspected in
many more racial killings.
Rozier says, “I am the first
to come to grips with what happened. I am not living in a psychotic world. I’m
living in a real world and having to face myself. I have grieved more than any
human being can grieve.” Rozier insists, the only danger he presents to society
is the eagerness of his enemies to kill him.
Update: On May 7th, 2007, Yahweh Ben Yahweh (cult leader), above, died of prostate cancer.
