COMMENT: In recent posts, we have examined indications of collusion between corrections officers in the United States and neo-Nazi/white supremacist prison gangs. We have also highlighted collusion between German intelligence and neo-Nazi networks  in that country.
Two recent stories supplement that research, indicating yet again that there are ominous parallels between the relationship joining the “authorities” and the Nazi/white supremacist “underworld” in both countries.
Inmates in one of the growing number of for-profit corporate prisons have charged that an apparent neo-Nazi prison gang has been given authority to supervise that prison, to an extent.
In Germany, neo-Nazis in prisons there have effectively networked, sparking speculation that German officialdom may be colluding with the inmates.
EXCERPT: Attorneys for inmates at Idaho’s largest private prison say Corrections Corporation of America is falsifying staff logs to hide chronic understaffing.
The allegation was raised Friday in an amended lawsuit filed in Boise’s U.S. District Court.
Attorneys for the Nashville, Tenn.-based CCA have not yet responded to the amended lawsuit in court, and CCA spokesman Steve Owen said he couldn’t discuss details of the litigation. . . .
. . . . The new lawsuit was filed in November by a group of inmates who contend CCA is working with a few powerful prison gangs to control the facility south of Boise and cut back on staffing. The attorney for the inmates, T.J. Angstman, cited an investigative report from the Idaho Department of Correction that suggested gangs like the Aryan Knights and the Severely Violent Criminals were able to wrest control from staff members after prison officials began housing members of the same gangs together in some cellblocks to reduce violent clashes. . . .
EXCERPT: They called themselves the A.D. Jail Crew and sought to band together “brothers and sisters” in prisons across Germany to “defend loyalty, comradeship and the ‘old’ values.” Their aim, according to an advertisement found by the authorities who broke up the network, was to provide support for neo-Nazis serving time behind bars.
Three prisoners in the state of Hesse are suspected by prosecutors in Frankfurt of forming a criminal organization and trying to reconstitute a banned organization, and the authorities widened their search on Thursday to include penal institutions across the country.
Details about the A.D. Jail Crew emerged days before the trial of the sole survivor of a trio of neo-Nazis who called themselves the National Socialist Underground opens in Munich. The authorities in Hesse said the name of the suspect, Beate Zschäpe, was included on a list of prisoners who were contacted by those trying to set up the far-right organization.
Ms. Zschäpe is charged with playing a role in the killings of eight men of Turkish background, one Greek man and a policewoman in a crime rampage that set off soul-searching in a country that has taken great pains over the years to publicly account for the crimes of its past.
Embarrassed over their failure to detect the National Socialist Underground sooner, the German police and intelligence agencies pledged last year to redouble their efforts to crack down on the far right. But the existence of the prison group and its efforts to organize behind bars raised questions about the seriousness of that commitment. . . .
