This is the product of, above all… the prison system in this country. The story doesn’t say they’re ex-cons (they’re pretty young), but it is in the pen, mainly the state prisons that are ruled by and large according to the law of the jungle, that this culture mainly flourishes. My law school classmate Mike German went undercover for the FBI and helped lock up, under federal auspices, a handful of these cockroaches. But it’s not enough, and he was even punished by the FBI for being too damned good at what he did.
Nazis aren’t just a Jewish problem. Maybe now some national attention will be devoted to this scourge. Frankly I could see either presidential candidate using this occurrence as a long-overdue argument to get public support for dealing with prison hate gangs — ideally, of all colors — with the brutality (per due process) that is necessary to eradicate them.
