When dealing with prosecutors it’s not who you know, but what you allege to know.

A former Ku Klux Klan leader charged with killing three people is a former FBI informant given a new identity by the federal government, reports ABC News.

Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, is charged with murder in shootings outside a Jewish center near Kansas City.

Cross was born Frazier Glenn Miller, a trucker who became a well-known white supremacist, Ku Klux Klan leader and the subject of a nationwide manhunt.

In 1987, Miller mailed a “Declaration of War” to thousands of white supremacists and several member of Congress. The document exhorted racists to “Let the blood of our enemies flood the streets, rivers and fields of the nation. Rise up and throw off the chains which bind us to the satanic, Jewish controlled and ruled federal government. Let the battle axes swing smoothly and the bullets wiss [sic] true.”

Federal agents soon located Miller, the founder of Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the paramilitary White Patriot Party in North Carolina, in a trailer near Ozark, Missouri. Multiple guns, grenades and pipe bombs were found inside the trailer along with about a thousand copies of Miller’s racist screed.

Within days of his arrest, Miller told federal agents he had merely gotten out of hand with his drinking.

“I was on vacation, flirting with girls and drinking beer and going red-necking,” Miller told agents. “I love to go out and drink a beer with rednecks … do the Texas Two-Step. I’m a pretty good dancer by the way.”

He also said he knew of two fellow “White Patriots” who had committed murder.

During their investigation, agents learned Miller, after running for governor of North Carolina, had been arrested after being caught in the act of having sex with a black, male prostitute dressed as a woman.

Sensing this was the kind of man who could help them, federal prosecutors agreed to a deal where Miller would help them in exchange for a 5-year prison sentence.

In 1988, ABC says Miller was a “key witness” in a case against more than a dozen white nationalists charged with fomenting a war against the federal government.

His testimony must not have been very convincing: Every suspect was acquitted and one of the jurors later married one of the defendants, writes ABC News.

Three years into his 5-year deal, in 1990, Miller was released from prison under a new identity provided by the federal government.

He was given a fresh start. He had a new name, Frazier Glenn Cross, a new Social Security number and was provided a new place to live in western Iowa.

But, after several years living under the protection of the government he once tried to overthrow — and hiding from the former white supremacist pals he testified against — Cross returned to living his life as a “belligerent, unapologetic white supremacist,” writes ABC.

Let’s hope prosecutors don’t cut him any deals this time.

No big surprise. Prominent Jewhaters tend to be government-paid provocateurs, spewing anti civil rights bigotry on behalf of their State Department paymasters.

They need to just release this piece of white trash to the general population inside of prison. No he will NOT get another deal. He is a piece of trash that does not deserve to live. Do us all a favor and just die! You piece of trash!

First Al Sharpton, now this guy? Does the FBI really think racists make reliable informants?

And will Cross, too, get a fat contract with MSNBC if he gets off the hook?

I am so sorry for the victims of this tragedy. We are such a large world today with so much confusion and ideas pulling in different directions. Even though we live differently, we all bleed red blood, poop the same poop, feel the same feelings. I wish we would have more patience and understanding as a society. Spouting hate towards hate to me accomplishes nothing.

Racism really has nothing to do with this man. That’s his means to an end, the vent for his psychosis. This man is just pure evil, plain and simple.

No surprise here. It is usually the loudest, most outspoken ones against something that are secretly for it behind closed doors. Who would have thought a former grand wizard likes his black man meat?

Apologists for bigoted, racist, homophobic white supremacists always like to portray them as being leftists. As if that really makes any sense and absolves them from being right wing extremists. S2, you must be one yourself.

So often when someone hates or fears a certain group of people, it turns out that they have some fear about their own deep desires or identity which they have buried.

typical of the feebies. They put the white supremacists and the mafia guys in witness protection. Then when they kill, the feebies are no where to be found. The U.S. attorney who did not send this guy to jail years ago should be tried for murder. Oh wait,he’s now a state judge in that state. Missouri I think. The judge needs to be fired. It’s his fault the killer was out of jail and able to get a gun and kill 3 people.

This is what happens when you give limitless power to the police state. The violent criminals under their “protection” are countless. In most cases they are being protected for some “higher goal” that has little to do with public safety and more to do with victimless crimes, or political aspirations of District Attorneys, Federal prosecutors, etc.

I sorta wonder what the women looked like that did the Texas Two-Step with this guy. Or maybe he was dancing with men.

So the white supremacist liked to flirt with black male transvestites who were rednecks?

The fella’s been ’round the bend and back. One COULD say he’s a well rounded person in today’s world.

Weirdo!
