Fugitive Alabama White Supremacist Shoots Self As Police Close In

lindsey-scott-carterA fugi­tive and racist prison gang mem­ber from Alabama shot him­self in Arkansas after lead­ing police on a lengthy chase.  On Decem­ber 8, Arkansas state troop­ers pulled over a vehi­cle linked to Lind­sey Scott Carter, 44, wanted in Alabama on sus­pi­cion of mur­der.  The dri­ver, a female friend of Carter, fled the vehi­cle, but Carter took the wheel and drove away. 

After a chase that wound through two coun­ties in west­ern Arkansas, troop­ers used traf­fic spikes to bring the vehi­cle to a halt again.  As the offi­cers approached the car, how­ever, they dis­cov­ered Carter had appar­ently shot him­self to death rather than face capture.

Accord­ing to local author­i­ties, Carter, from Paint Rock, Alabama, had shot and killed a woman on Decem­ber 7 in what police believe was some sort of drug-related dis­pute.  Fol­low­ing the mur­der, a female friend of Carter (since arrested for hin­der­ing pros­e­cu­tion) allegedly pro­vided the vehi­cle that Carter used to flee with a sec­ond female friend.  Author­i­ties have not charged the sec­ond friend, the one who fled the vehi­cle in Arkansas, say­ing that she had not been aware of Carter’s crimes.

Carter had a pre­vi­ous crim­i­nal his­tory and was a mem­ber of the South­ern Broth­er­hood, Alabama’s largest white suprema­cist prison gang.  The South­ern Broth­er­hood, which has a lengthy record of vio­lence and crim­i­nal activ­ity, began in 1995 in the East­er­ling Cor­rec­tional Facil­ity and sub­se­quently spread to the rest of the state (it also has a pres­ence in sev­eral other states).  It also has a biker gang sub­group, the South­ern Broth­er­hood Motor­cy­cle Club.

After Carter’s sui­cide, other South­ern Broth­er­hood mem­bers passed the news of their fel­low gang member’s death.  One South­ern Broth­er­hood gang mem­ber posted to an on-line social net­work­ing web­site that “we lost a good Bro yesterday…Rest in Peace Scott Carter 14/23.”  The num­bers “14/23” con­sti­tute a South­ern Broth­er­hood numeric sym­bol that com­bines two con­cepts.  The num­ber 14 is a ref­er­ence to the so-called 14 Words, a pop­u­lar white suprema­cist slo­gan:  “We must secure the exis­tence of our peo­ple and a future for white chil­dren.”  The num­ber 23 stands for the “23 Pre­cepts,” a list of 23 rules that gang mem­bers are required to follow.

Sim­i­larly, another gang mem­ber posted that “We had a bro pass away yesterday…R.I.P. Scott Carter…14/23 19/2.”  The num­bers 19 and 2 are code for the South­ern Broth­er­hood, as S is the 19th let­ter of the alpha­bet and B the 2nd letter.

New Black Panther Party Announces New Chairman, Same Hateful Message

Malik Zulu Shabazz announced that he is step­ping down from his posi­tion as National Chair­man of the racist and anti-Semitic New Black Pan­ther Party (NBPP) to focus on his career as a lawyer with the Black Lawyers for Jus­tice, an orga­ni­za­tion he founded in 1996.

Shabazz made the announce­ment on the NBPP’s online radio broad­cast on Mon­day. He noted that despite leav­ing his posi­tion as National Chair­man, he will con­tinue to serve the NBPP as a “spir­i­tual guide.”

His replace­ment is Hashim Nzinga, who pre­vi­ously served as the NBPP’s Chief of Staff and has been involved with the NBPP since 1994 when he met Khalid Muham­mad and served as his per­sonal assistant.

Like Shabazz, Nzinga has a long his­tory of racism and anti-Semitism. In a June 2013 online radio broad­cast, for exam­ple, Nzinga claimed that Jews con­spire to pro­mote a neg­a­tive image of Black youth through their sup­posed con­trol of the media, stat­ing, “The Jews’ news…shows us before the world look­ing like damn fools” and called for a boy­cott of com­pa­nies that “con­tinue to help the Jews’ news make our youth look like buf­foons before the world.”

In Jan­u­ary 2010, Nzinga accused Jews of hav­ing dis­pro­por­tion­ate power over the media and enter­tain­ment indus­tries, which he asserted was achieved by exploit­ing alliances with Blacks dur­ing the Civil Rights era. Jews, he argued, “used us as can­non fire while they directed our lead­ers, they directed Dr. King, they directed the NAACP, they directed those who they control.”

Nzinga fur­ther protested what he sees as a Jew­ish monop­oly on suf­fer­ing, stat­ing, “If we men­tion our Holo­caust even the Jews get mad, but you say some­thing about their Holo­caust, they call you anti-Semitic.” Nzinga also claimed that Jews had fore­knowl­edge of Sep­tem­ber 11 attacks dur­ing a 2005 appear­ance on Han­nity & Colmes.

Malik Shabazz also announced that National Spokesman Chawn Kweli will take over Nzinga’s for­mer role of NBPP Chief of Staff. King Samir Shabazz, noto­ri­ous for rants in which he calls for vio­lence against whites and oth­ers, will remain in his posi­tion of National Field Marshall.

Former White Supremacist Terror Cell Members Arrested In Arizona

On Octo­ber 14, agents from the Bureau of Alco­hol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explo­sives (ATF) launched a raid on a remote piece of land out­side Ash Fork, Ari­zona, to arrest white suprema­cist Kirby Kehoe and his son, Cheyne, on weapons charges. 

The two Kehoes, both con­victed felons, allegedly pos­sessed around 20–30 firearms, includ­ing assault weapons, rifles, and hand­guns, as well as thou­sands of rounds of ammu­ni­tion. Cheyne Kehoe was also allegedly in pos­ses­sion of body armor, also prohibited.

The Kehoes were among the most noto­ri­ous of the white suprema­cist ter­ror­ists of the 1990s. In the late 1990s, both Kirby and Cheyne Kehoe were mem­bers of a domes­tic ter­ror cell led by Chevie Kehoe, the eldest son of Kirby. While pur­su­ing the grandiose dream of cre­at­ing an “Aryan People’s Repub­lic,” the Kehoes and other cell mem­bers mur­dered five peo­ple, includ­ing an eight-year-old girl, engaged in shootouts with police, com­mit­ted armed rob­beries, and allegedly planted a bomb at the city hall build­ing of Spokane, Washington.  

Chevie Kehoe even­tu­ally received mul­ti­ple life sen­tences for his role in the vio­lent acts, while another mem­ber, Daniel Lee, received a death sen­tence. Cheyne Kehoe received a 24-year sen­tence that was later reduced to 11 years for coop­er­a­tion, while Kirby Kehoe received a 51-month sentence. 

Kirby Kehoe, who lived in the Pacific North­west in the 1990s, pur­chased land in Ari­zona in early 2013, to which he and some other mem­bers of his large fam­ily moved. The ATF inves­ti­ga­tion stemmed from an ear­lier encounter between Cheyne Kehoe and local law enforce­ment offi­cers in early Sep­tem­ber.  In this inci­dent, author­i­ties arrested Cheyne on charges of domes­tic violence-related unlaw­ful impris­on­ment, pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia, dis­or­derly con­duct, imper­son­at­ing a police offi­cer, and assault/touching (know­ingly touch­ing another per­son with the intent to injure, insult or pro­voke such person). 

The inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing and fur­ther arrests are possible.
