Under the leadership of Attorney General Merrick Garland, the US Department of Justice has indicted 16 members of a white supremacist gang.

The gang members have been charged with with violent crimes in aid of racketeering.

“According to the indictment, the defendants were members of Unforgiven, a racketeering enterprise engaged in acts of murder, violence, kidnapping, robbery, obstruction of justice, and other offenses,” said a DOJ press release. “The indictment also alleges that Unforgiven used ‘corrupt law enforcement officers and state employees’ to gather information about people, investigations, and prosecutions, and to smuggle contraband to incarcerated inmates. The indictment charges each of the 16 defendants with committing at least one violent act in aid of Unforgiven, including kidnappings, conspiracies to commit assault, threats of violence, and assaults with deadly weapons.”

NBC News reported, “The group required its members to study ‘Aryan Philosophy’ and carry out acts of extreme violence to gain entry into the gang, the indictment says. They were also required to ​​get tattoos – which included swastikas, iron crosses and SS bolts – pay dues and attend regular meetings known as ‘Church,’ the court papers say.”

After the Trump administration minimized the threat of white supremacist violence, including Donald Trump praising neo-Nazis as “very fine people,” the Biden team has said prosecuting violent white supremacists are a priority.

The arrest is one of the first major operations to occur after that shift in policy against violent racists.
