It sounds like Jesse has portrayed himself as someone different than who he really is. James’ father said that although Jesse has reported he was always in trouble with the law when he was younger, it just did not happen that way.
The bad boy image Jesse reports from his younger days is just not true. He had only one minor incident with the law when he was younger. He stayed 26 days in a juvenile hall for stealing some film out of a Photomat.
Larry James said that Jesse became interested in Nazi culture at a young age. His father said he bought home books for young Jesse to read about the Nazi war because his son was so interested in it.
The elder James said he had a friend who was a Nazi and he introduced Jesse to him when he was younger. The Nazi friend said that Jesse was the “perfect example of the master race” because he was tall, had blond hair, and blue eyes.
The Nazi friend gave Larry James a bunch of literature to bring home to Jesse and Larry gave it to him “as a joke”. Jesse’s interest in the Nazi culture as well as his collecting of Nazi items has been a life long thing with Jesse.
Larry James said that he has never met Sandra Bullock and that Jesse has not talked with him in six years. None of Jesse’s family was invited to Sandra Bullock and Jesse James wedding. Larry James said he saw Jesse at a funeral last year and when he extended his hand to shake Jesse’s , he was told to stay the “f**k away from me” from Jesse.
After listening to the elder James speak about his son, it sounds as if Jesse created his bad boy image for himself through stories he made up. It also sounds as if his infatuation, or “obsession”, as Larry James calls it, with the Nazi culture has been more than a hobby for him for many years.
Did Jesse take being called “the perfect example of the master race” to heart? There is a big difference between the people who study the history of the Nazi movement and the people who worship or agree with this evil. In what category does Jesse’s “obsession” put him?
