George Emil Banks is a Pennsylvania mass murderer, given a death sentence but later declared by the court to be too psychotic to execute. Banks, a former Camp Hill prison guard, shot 13 people to death in 1982 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, including five of his own children. Banks said he killed his children because he felt they would be tormented by the cruelty of racial views against mixed race children. Since his conviction, Banks has tried to kill himself four times and has gone on hunger strikes that required him to be force fed. A psychiatric report filed in the case says Banks believes he is in a spiritual fight with an Antichrist in New York, that Pennsylvania was controlled by the Islamic religion and he has engaged in a "private war with President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky".
