    Rick Perry likes the Drug Cartel did it angle rather than pointing blame at the AB.

    Rick Perry probably just got confused and couldn't remember who it was.

    Here's a good article showing how these racist AB a-holes morphed from RW hate group into Mafia style gansters?

    BBC News - Aryan Brotherhood of Texas: How did neo-Nazi prison gangs become so powerful?
    The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which monitors hate in the US, describes the ABT as "the most violent extremist group in the United States". It says the gang, thought to have around 2,000 members, has committed "at least" 29 murders in the US between 2000-12.

    Its primary objective has moved beyond conducting turf wars inside jails or propagating racist ideology, however, into running a ruthless Mafia-style organised crime network...

    "If you look at domestic extremist groups in the US, they are responsible for more homicides than anyone else, although most are crime-related, to do with insubordination or revenge or against those who owe them money," says Brian Levin, director of California State University's Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.

    Of the confirmed ABT murders from 2000-12, the ADL estimates that 41% were "internal killings".

    And after all the jumping to conclusions and rush to make this about race and racists...turns out the killer was a pudgy disgruntled court clerk with no affiliation to any 'hate groups'.

    On the plus side...when homey goes to prison, he is going to get a chance to get acquainted with those hate groups. Up close and VERY personal. I'm sure they LOVED the attention and scrutiny he gave them.

    No kidding?
    Ex-Texas justice of the peace charged with making 'terroristic threat' - CNN.com
    Seems vague if anything.

    Williams has a history with law enforcement authorities, including the Kaufman County District Attorney's office.

    Last year, he was sentenced to two years' probation after a conviction for burglary and theft by a public servant. Hasse prosecuted Williams' case.

    Hours after the McLellands' bodies were found, authorities met with Williams at a local Denny's restaurant, Williams' attorney, David Sergi, told CNN earlier this month.

    Investigators took swab samples from Williams' hands to test him for gun residue, according to the lawyer. Results were not made public by officials, but Sergi said the tests came back negative.
    Very Vague. In fact, he wasn't even arrested for the murders.
    Eric Williams was arrested by sheriff's office members in Kaufman County and charged with two counts of insufficient bond and one count of making a "terroristic threat."

    That is a lie. The article does not say that this guy was the killer. They don't even say that he was involved in it in any way

    Authorities have not said if Williams' arrest is related to the investigation into the deaths of Mark Hasse and Mike McLelland

    You are both right...I overstated his 'arrest' and the purpose.

    It now looks like the ex-justice was involved in the killings

    Ex-JP Eric Williams to be charged in DA, wife and assistant DA deaths - UPI.com

    KAUFMAN, Texas, April 15 (UPI) -- A former justice of the peace is expected to be charged with capital murder in the killings of two Texas prosecutors and the wife of one of them, officials say.

    The charges against Eric Williams, 46, in the deaths of Kaufman County District Attorney Mike McLelland, 63, his wife Cynthia, 65, and Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, 57, are expected to be filed as early as Tuesday, law enforcement authorities in Kaufman, Texas, told The Dallas Morning News.
