Fake Nazi biker gang sting takes down real-life white supremacists
The 1st SS Kavallerie Brigade Motorcyle Division was never what it seemed. Instead of an outlaw biker gang, the club was created by law enforcers to track down potential thugs and terrorists. The 1st SS Kavallerie Brigade Motorcycle Division was founded in 2007 to recruit neo-Nazi bikers for the Aryan Nations, a white supremacist terrorist organization. One member offered a $1,000 reward for the shooting of a black man. Others stockpiled explosives to be used in terror attacks on U.S. targets. But the biker gang was founded by undercover law enforcement agents in Florida, and eventually 20 people were arrested for a range of offenses, from dealing drugs to possessing illegal weapons and plotting murders, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Authorities say undercover operation toppled two domestic terrorist groups. Five-year investigation involved setting up Aryan Nations-linked motorcycle gang called 1st SS Kavallerie Brigade Motorcycle Division
Agents installed covert cameras in gang’s clubhouse to record illegal activity. Second white-supremacist group known as American Front also taken down. Members were training in rural Florida for hoped-for race war and used murdered black man’s grave as urinal. Police set up a neo-Nazi motorcycle gang to snare white supremacists and racist bikers, including one who allegedly offered a $1,000 reward to anyone willing to murder a black man. After a five-year undercover investigation, prosecutors in Osceola County, Florida, believe they have been able to topple two domestic terrorism groups who were planning attacks on U.S. soil. The probe – involving informants, hidden cameras and microphones, as well as undercover agents – revealed a subculture of neo-Nazi activists who were training and equipping themselves for a race war. Fourteen members of a white supremacist group and five members of a racist biker gang have since been charged with offences ranging from drug trafficking to participating in paramilitary training. (…) Once one of the country’s leading white-supremacist groups, the Aryan Nations, who believe the ‘white race’ to be an ‘endangered species’, had been in decline since 2004 after founder Richard Butler’s death and lawsuits by the Southern Poverty Law Centre which had depleted its funds. Kreiss wanted to form a neo-Nazi biker club which would serve as the paramilitary arm of white supremacists across the U.S., according to records seen by the Sentinel. Following the email exchange, an undercover agent from Orange County became the Aryan Nations’ top Florida recruiter for what would become the 1st SS Kavallerie Brigade Motorcycle Division.
