KKK member busted in upstate New York for trying to sell a radiation gun

He was caught after he called synagogues trying to convince them they should fund his device so he could kill muslims. Terrorism radiation plot uncovered in Albany - Times Union
ALBANY, N.Y. — An industrial mechanic with General Electric Co., who is also allegedly a member of the Ku Klux Klan, designed a deadly mobile radiation device that he intended to sell to Jewish groups or a southern branch of the Ku Klux Klan, according to a federal complaint unsealed Wednesday in Albany. The device was intended to be a truck-mounted radiation particle weapon that could be remotely controlled and capable of silently aiming a lethal beam of radioactivity at its human targets. The concept was that victims would eventually die from radiation sickness. Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway, is accused in a federal complaint of developing "a radiation emitting device that could be placed in the back of a van to covertly emit ionizing radiation strong enough to bring about radiation sickness or death against Crawford's enemies," states the complaint attributed to an FBI agent. Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, also is identified as a co-conspirator and listed in the complaint as Crawford's acquaintance. Feight works for an electronics company in Columbia County. He is accused in a federal complaint of agreeing to help Crawford construct the electronic controls for the device. Crawford never actually obtained a radiation source and the device was not fully constructed, officials said. During the past year, the complaint indicates he was dealing with an undercover FBI agent pretending to be a supplier of radiation equipment, such as x-ray tubes used in construction projects or medical devices. At one point, the undercover agent sent an email to Crawford showing different x-ray systems that could be supplied.

The Catholic Church kept a secret set of files documenting hundreds of years of rape and murder and corruption

Sex-abuse investigations rip open Catholic Church's secret files - latimes.com
Preparing for his return to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles after six months' treatment at a center for pedophile priests, Father Michael Wempe sat down to type out a list of concerns. Arrangements for his dog. Counseling and support groups for himself. Above everything, he wrote at the top of the list in the 1987 memo: "Confidentiality — Reports from here destroyed, even this paper." Wempe had good reason for the request. The reports from the center laid out how he had confessedto molesting young boys. Wempe's therapists also urged church officials to immediately destroy everything. If the papers fell in the hands of law enforcement, the priest, the archdiocese and the treatment center could be in serious trouble. But Cardinal Roger Mahony and other church leaders ignored the warnings. Rather than shred or burn the reports, they preserved them in carefully organized file cabinets where they remained until this year. The release of those records — and thousands of pages of other damaging abuse documents in January — begged a question: Why did the church hold on to decades-old evidence of its priests' sins? . . .

Deputies at L.A. County Sheriff's Office Say Racist Gangs Run the Department

Deputies at L.A. County Sheriff's Office Say Racist Gangs Run the Department | Your Black World
Deputies at an L.A. County Sheriff’s Office are claiming that their bosses are members of white supremacist gangs who have subverted at least one FBI investigation. According to the deputies, law enforcement officers have even gone so far as to hide a suspect from the FBI out of their allegiance to a white supremacist group. Two L.A. County deputies have filed a lawsuit claiming that their department is a hotbed for white supremacists and that members of the department covered up a crime involving a skinhead. “An inappropriate relationship exists between certain LASD personnel and various inmate jail gangs, especially white supremacist,” read the complaint filed by deputies Michael Rathbun and James Sexton. “LASD personnel use these jail gangs as proxies or agents to retaliate against other LASD deputies and inmates. Within these inappropriate alliances, the gangs are given certain privileges that are otherwise legally precluded from them,” continued the complaint, filed in federal court against the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. Lt. Greg Thompson, who is a defendant in the suit, is allegedly a member of a racist gang called “the Vikings.” The deputies accuse the LASD of hiding an inmate “in an effort to obstruct a federal investigation.” The deputies say that in February of 2012, they learned from an informant at Operation Safe Jails (OSJ) that Deputy Joseph Britton was associated with a powerful white supremacist gang. “At all relevant times, certain members of OSJ associated with, and cooperated with, certain jail gangs, including partaking in illicit activities. Sheriff Baca and/or Undersheriff Tanaka knew or should have known about these improper relationships, but took no action to stop it and implicitly ratified the improper conduct” read the complaint. “LASD personnel, using jail gangs as their agents, labeled Rathbun and Sexton as ‘race traitors,” the complaint states. The deputies say they only came forward due to months of harassment and threats from officials.
