Wade Michael Page

One thing that jumps out from a cursory look at Wisconsin murderer, neo-Nazi, and white supremacist Wade Michael Page is that he was probably an alcoholic, based upon his multiple convictions for DUI:

  • In 1994 Wade Michael Page was convicted of a “Class A Misdemeanor” in Houston Texas County Court, but I don’t have any details on the offense yet
  • In 1999 he was convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Denver County Court, Denver Colorado
  • In 2010 he was convicted of Driving While Impaired (DWI) in Harnett County, North Carolina

In the mid-2000s Page was reported living in the City of Orange in Orange County, California.  In 2002 he was apparently ticketed in a traffic stop in Orange County.

UPDATE 8/7/12:  Looks like my prediction based on Page’s criminal record was correct.  It’s now being reported that his 1998 discharge from the United States Army was in part based upon a pattern of behavior which included his being drunk on duty.  This raises the question of whether and what the armed forces do regarding alcoholics in their ranks.  I don’t have a clue.  Maybe there are great programs or maybe they just kick them out without treatment and a chance for rehabilitation; or maybe somewhere in between.  Either way, it’s an important question that should be asked and explored….because maybe a different response by the Army could have changed his life and saved the lives of people in Oak Creek, Wisconsin in the process.


About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
