75 supremacists convicted, leaving Aryan Brotherhood of Texas in ‘absolute chaos,’ feds say

A federal prosecutor says the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas is in “absolute chaos” after nearly 75 people were convicted following a six-year investigation into the white supremacist gang, but others warn the crime network won’t be brought down by a single bust. The U.S. Justice Department secured a combined total of 900 years in prison time for the convicted Aryan Brotherhood members after a federal probe that began in 2008, the Houston Chronicle reported Sunday. A review of records, court documents, transcripts and interviews by the newspaper found that the roughly 2,000-member gang is now struggling to rebuild. “They are in chaos, absolute chaos,” said David Karpel, a Department of Justice attorney who spearheaded the prosecutions. “It has reduced their power; they don’t know who to trust.” The Aryan Brotherhood has a history of crimes in Texas that includes robberies, burglaries, kidnappings and murders.
