On Sunday, Judge Jeanine Pirro of Fox News discussed the murder of top felony prosecutor Mark Hassey of the Kaufman County DA’s office in Texas, as well as the murder of District Attorney Mike McClellan and his wife Cynthia a few weeks later. Noting the Aryan Brotherhood’s alleged involvement in the case, Pirro picked up on a theme reported by Breitbart News based on documents obtained from the FBI, namely that the Aryan Brotherhood may be working in conjunction with the Mexican drug cartels for business reasons – and that these murders may be drug business related rather than race-related. As the FBI reported, “The purpose of the AB is now power and is not a racial organization as it has been deemed in the past. The AB’s continue to be aligned with members of the Mexican Mafia (EME) and certain motorcycle type inmates.”
Judge Jeanine reported, “Before his brutal murder, DA McClellan was the chief law enforcement officer of a county through which interstate 20, a known drug corridor, ran …. I think that white supremacy has very little to do with these murders. When you peel back the layers of the onion and actually read the federal indictment against those 34 members of Aryan Brotherhood Texas, the charges are racketeering …. Maybe the Aryan Brotherhood Texas has changed its original mission. Maybe this is about business and not ideology. Maybe this is about turning a profit.”
That, indeed, seems to be the common thread running through these killings, even as the media rushes to avoid any discussions about border security and the impact of Mexican drug cartels on the American southwest.
