64 White Supremacists Prosecuted by DOJ Receive Total 820 Years in Federal Prison


64 White Supremacists Prosecuted by DOJ Receive Total 820 Years in Federal Prison

Sixty-four white supremacists have been sentenced to a combined total of 820 years' imprisonment in what is believed to be the largest collective prosecution of white supremacists in the United States, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas.

On Thursday, Garry Cody Jones, 51, was sentenced to over 11 years in prison for his role in a drug dealing scheme, marking the 64th and final hearing in the second round of sentencing for a series of kidnapping and drug-related conspiracies involving hate groups.

Jones' lawyer did not return a request for comment.

"Not only do white supremacist gangs endorse repugnant ideologies, they also facilitate a violent drug and gun trade, putting our citizens in grave danger," U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said in a press release. "We were alarmed but not necessarily surprised at the quantities of drugs and firearms recovered during this investigation. The U.S. Attorney's Office is committed to working with our law enforcement partners to dismantle these organizations, disrupt their criminal activities, and put their members behind bars."


Other defendants were charged with offenses ranging from threats to violent assaults. In one instance, a suspected neo-Nazi had "attempted to run over officers during his arrest."

2. I'm fine with this, as ...

They have a chance at parole a week or so ahead of release date.

These folks are the scum of the earth and as abhorrent as their views are ... their worst offense is what they probably taught their children.

4. My question: what steps will be taken to prevent them spreading their poison to others in prison?
