Racist Hale Convicted in Federal Murder Plot

A Chicago jury convicts white supremacist Matthew Hale for soliciting the murder of a federal judge, ending three days of deliberations. Hale, who several years ago called for a "racial holy war," had conspired to have a U.S. district judge killed after she ordered him to stop using the trademarked name World Church of the Creator. Chicago Public Radio's Melba Lara reports.
