NEW ORLEANS, [LA]--Kenny Knight managed to stay out of trouble while working as a “lieutenant” and campaign manager for former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, but his role in a Louisiana “pill mill” scheme is likely to get him prison time. Knight faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to selling opioids illegally at Axcess Medical Clinics in the New Orleans area, a chain he owned. In his plea, he admitted to running the operation where patients at the cash-only clinic were prescribed opiates like oxycodone without seeing doctors, but also to “telling out of state patients to park away from the clinics so their cars wouldn’t draw suspicion.” Knight, the rep

PORT ORCHARD, [WA]--On Tuesday a man who allegedly professed to be a “white supremacist” pleaded not guilty to felonies for harassing two people at Kitsap Mall in September, including threatening to kill a security guard who he addressed using a slur.

HIDDENITE, [NC]--On Veterans Day Weekend someone, under the cover of darkness, left small baggies with information about the KKK on at least a dozen front lawns. Each sandwich-sized baggie had some candy in it, rice to apparently weigh it down, and a small recruiting flyer with a website and phone number to call. It’s been many years since there has been any sign of the Klan in Alexander County, Sheriff Chris Bowman said. Investigators have ten baggies now that have been turned over to them by residents in the Sharpe Lane neighborhood. They are working to find out who dumped them there. Sheriff Bowman called the number on the flyer, but only got a rambling message that ended with telling

ORANGE COUNTY, [CA]--Prosecutors and the County Counsel's office have spent two years trying to keep the public from learning that Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) deputies allegedly enticed a confidential informant to supply potent illegal narcotics to a fugitive murder suspect so they could apprehend and interrogate him while he was semi-comatose. Though this latest OCSD mess remains officially hidden in sealed court documents, evidence reviewed by the Weekly indicates the episode stems from a Sept. 2015 manhunt for Craig Tanber, then a 37-year-old member of the white supremacist gang Public Enemy Number One (PEN1) and wanted for the murder of an Iranian American college student.

KNOXVILLE, [TN]--Spurred by growing anti-Fascist activism, groups like Stormfront are being driven out of private venues. They're seeking refuge in Tennessee, where state park facilities must open doors, provide a fleet of park rangers for security and uphold rental contracts despite protests and complaints from the public. "Tennessee is, like, the place now," said Heidi Beirich, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Report. "They love Tennessee. The state has to rent to the public." Carla Hill, an investigative researcher for the Anti-Defamation League's Center on Extremism, said she believes the trend will continue with white supremacist groups making use of a governm

PORTLAND, [OR]--Brent Luyster was convicted of killing 3 people in a Woodland home in 2016 by a jury that deliberated more than a day on the charges. The jury found the 37-year-old Luyster guilty on all charges on Friday morning — 3 counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempted murder and 2 counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, Clark County Prosecuting Attorney said. Luyster fatally shot Joseph Mark Lamar, Zachary Thompson and Janell Renee Knight on July 15, 2016 in Woodland.

UNITED STATES, [US]--Hate groups base their existence on shared antipathy or hostility toward people of different races, religions, genders, national origins or sexual identities. That's according to the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center. There are hundreds of organized hate groups in the U.S. This a look at some of the most active ones. The Ku Klux Klan is the oldest American hate group and has splintered into dozens of white supremacist organizations that are often at odds with each other. The Klan primarily targets black Americans, but also attacks Jews, immigrants and the LGBTQ community. Formed in 2012, the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan describe them

LOS ANGELES, [CA]--As Charles Manson clings to life, there’s an important part of his time on Earth that often goes undiscussed but should be remembered: He was a white supremacist. The cult leader and mass murderer, who has a swastika etched into his forehead, used racism to coax his disciples into slaughtering nine people in the hopes it would spark a race war. His goal was to one day rule over African Americans because he felt they were too dumb to govern themselves. He referred to African Americans as “blackies” and was petrified of black Muslims and Black Panthers. He reportedly refused to associate with black inmates during his time in prison. Manson grew up in the 1940s in West
