KKK in your local Police Dept.
By Christopher R Rice
From the Los Angeles Times: LOS ANGELES- The somber image of Death's hooded skull and scythe tattooed onto the inside of the deputy's left ankle initiated him into a select fraternity called the Grim Reapers. Then a street cop at the Lennox station, this deputy has risen to a key position in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department - along with other members of his "club." The groups - with macho monikers like the Pirates, Vikings, Rattlesnakes and Cavemen - have long been a subculture in the country's largest Sheriff's Department and, in some cases, an inside track to acceptance in the ranks.
Senior officers say they began with the creation of the Little Devils at the East Los Angeles station in 1971. Membership swelled in the 1980s at overwhelmingly white sheriff's stations that were islands in black and Latino immigrant communities.
A federal judge hearing class-action litigation against the department described the most well-known of the groups, the Lynwood Vikings, as a "neo-Nazi, white supremacist gang" and found that deputies had engaged in racially motivated hostility. The county paid $9 million in fines and training costs to settle the lawsuits in 1996. But today, groups like the Grim Reapers are enjoying renewed popularity among young deputies, who say the groups are fraternities that bond on morale-building values, not race. A new group - the Regulators - has formed at the Century station, and even suburban deputies are thinking about getting tattoos.
Many in law enforcement are members "it's not unusual to find a police officer who is secretly a Klansman," said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups.
From the Associated Press: Fruitland Park FL. PD, has been dealing with KKK ties and other problems in the police ranks since 2010, Officer James Elkins resigned after his estranged wife made his membership public.
Fruitland Park FL. PD were linked in July 2014 to the United Northern and Southern Knights Chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement sent the police chief a report linking the officers to the Klan based on information from the FBI.
From The Washington Post: The small city of Jennings, Mo., had a police department so troubled, and with so much tension between white officers and black residents, that the city council finally decided to disband it. Everyone in the Jennings police department was fired.
That was three years ago. One of the officers who worked in that department, and lost his job along with everyone else, was a young man named Darren Wilson.
Police faced a series of lawsuits for using unnecessary force. The Jennings department also had a corruption problem.
Some of the Jennings officers reapplied for their jobs, but Wilson got a job in the police department in the nearby city of Ferguson.
Darren Wilson’s girlfriend, Ferguson police officer Barbara Spradling, is a member of the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, which calls itself the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan (TAKKKK).
The Missouri chapter of the Klu Klux Klan has set up a fund for Officer Darren Wilson. An email circulated by the group calls Brown a “black thug” and the officer who killed him a hero.
Underground America Inc. (UNI) broke the news – because the US press is in a feeding frenzy.
UPDATE: According to CNN: Darren Wilson and Barbara Spradling were married in November and are expecting a child.
Back in the '60's and '70's the FBI disrupted, infiltrated, arrested and shut down the Ku Klux Klan and the Mafia. I know because I watched it on TV. The Klan disappeared, smaller groups like the Nazi-Lowriders and the punk-rock skin-heads sprung up in their place but never attracted much attention or much of a following. The Mafia fell off, leaving petty crimes, drug dealing and prostitution to local gangs.
On the surface it appeared that the Klan and the Mafia were defeated. Unfortunately, things are never what they seem.
White supremacist groups take many different forms. The Skinheads are street gangs, named for their shaved heads they use as an identifier. The Aryan Brotherhood exists as a gang in many prisons across the country. There are also many white sympathizers who may not officially belong to a white supremacist group, but who hold and support the same beliefs.
There are several watchdog organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League that track the size and activities of these groups.
In reality, many members of your local police, sheriffs, border patrol already belong to the Ku Klux Klan. And the Mafia merged with the CIA and became todays drug cartels...
Hi, welcome to the Underground.
After years of reforms and lawsuits, one thing is perfectly clear- our politicians are only interested in training a brutal police force. And they have no interest in "protecting and serving" our families or our communities.

Should We Trust Police Officers?
Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.
