Special Agent William Grode, who is based in Rapid City, S.D.
Parsons has been paid for seven months, Grode testified during
the Muskegee trial.

If not for the payments, Parsons testified, he would not be able
to run the center on a full-time basis and would have to return
to truck driving to earn a living.

Under cross examination by defense attorneys, Grode defended the
government's payments to Parsons.

"The reason (for) trying to keep him in there is I feel he has
become a calming voice for these militias across the country,"
Grode testified.

Grode said his relationship with Parsons has allowed the federal
government to diffuse three possibly dangerous situations. This
is the first time the two have testified at a trial about their

Parsons also told the court that he learned of a death threat
against Lampley that allegedly came from the Texas Constitutional
Militia and passed it to Grode. Grode testified that he relayed
that information to an FBI agent in Muskogee, who warned Lampley
about the threat.

Grode said the FBI had asked him to make contacts within the
militia movement after the Oklahoma City bombing "to understand
better what's going on."

Grode paid Parsons for a trip the militia member took throughout
the Southwest to determine the validity of a threat to bomb a
building in New Mexico.

Parsons testified that he made many contacts in his seven-state
journey. He was paid $500.00 a week for three weeks on that trip,
as well as money for telephone expenses, Grode testified.

"We have become friends," Parsons testified of his relationship
with Grode. But, he added that the two don't work together.

Grode said there are some things that Parsons does not discuss
with him, including rosters, training sites or meetings of
militia groups. The agent added that he does not consider Parsons
an informant.

"It's a communication bridge...We discuss philosophies," Parsons

Grode gives Parsons a view on how law enforcement officials may
perceive a particular issue or rumor and Parsons said he gives
the agent a militia perspective on topics in which the federal
government may be interested.

Parsons said he did not agree with Lampley's philosophy and that
he had arranged a meeting between a sheriff -- who was working
undercover -- and the defendant.

"(Lampley's) philosophy and agenda was against the constitutional
agenda of the militias," Parsons testified.

The Muskogee trial resumes Monday and is expected to last until
the end of the month.

Bomb Defused at Argentine Torturer's Hospital

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (Reuter) - Explosives experts Thursday
found a bomb outside a naval hospital where a ``Dirty War''
police doctor was fighting for his life after being riddled with
bullets by a leftist guerrilla group.

Interior Minister Carlos Corach told a news conference after
an urgent cabinet meeting on a series of attacks and threats that
the bomb was a home-made device and was set off in a controlled
explosion by a police bomb squad.

Corach said a spate of unconnected threats and attacks
coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the March 24, 1976
military coup that ushered in Argentina's infamous ``Dirty War''
appeared to be aimed at spreading panic among the population.

``The aim is to create a sense of insecurity for all,'' Corach
said at the Olivos presidential palace one day after Argentina's
security forces were put on a state of alert. But he told
reporters, ``there is no situation whatsoever posing a serious
public security risk.''

The bomb was planted outside a naval hospital where Dr Jorge
Berges, condemned to 6 1/2 years in prison in 1986 but freed
under a general amnesty, was in critical condition. An obscure
leftist guerrilla group, the People's Revolutionary Organization
(ORP), claimed responsibility for last week's attack on Berges,
who was convicted for torturing pregnant prisoners and selling
their babies for adoption.

Wednesday the ORP threatened to blow up an Austral airline
domestics flight.

The series of seemingly unconnected telephone threats and
attacks on schools, soccer stadiums, businessmen, artists,
journalists and airlines took Buenos Aires by surprise. The city,
where thousands of people disappeared without a trace during the
military's ``Dirty War'' campaign in the late 1970s against
left-wing rebels, has been mostly free from such attacks since
Argentina's return to democracy in 1983.

The victims of the latest threats included television
talk-show host Bernardo Neustadt, radio journalist Julio Lagos
and Independiente soccer club.

PHOENIX (Apr 11, 1996 01:24 a.m. EDT) -- Betrayed by one of
their own, the Aryan Brotherhood took a serious hit Wednesday as
police smashed a network that smuggled drugs and weapons into
Arizona prisons.

A dawn raid by about 200 heavily armed law officers bagged
more than 30 members and associates of the white-supremacist
prison gang.

The raid capped an investigation that began last summer, when
the Arizona Department of Corrections concluded that it had a
major problem with drug and weapons smuggling at the prisons.
Investigators soon learned that the major players were Aryan
Brotherhood members, in and out of Arizona's 10 prisons.

The DOC investigators contacted Detective Jack Ballentine of
the Phoenix Police Department's organized-crime unit. Ballentine,
an expert on the Brotherhood, hatched a plan of action with Sgt.
D.P. Davis and Detective Tom Kulesa of the Phoenix police.

To launch the plan, authorities offered a slightly shorter
sentence to an inmate at the Perryville prison complex who is
associated with the Aryan Brotherhood. The inmate agreed to take
orders for methamphetamine, heroin and steroids, as well as
weapons, from fellow inmates and phone those orders to suppliers
known to Aryan Brotherhood members.

"We made the sting 'target specific,' concentrating on people
known to have sent drugs or weapons into the prisons," Ballentine
said. "We only went after A.B. members, associates, probates and
individuals sympathetic to the A.B. cause."

The "turned" prisoner told the suppliers that the drugs or
weapons would be picked up by a trusted associate. The "trusted
associate," however, was Kulesa, whose shaved head, beard and
earring help him move easily in Aryan Brotherhood circles.

Ballentine said contraband gets into prisons "every way you
can imagine." Visitors may hide drugs in a book, for example, "or
a small pistol may be dismantled and taken in a piece at a time"
hidden in a body cavity.

Most of the targeted drug suppliers were in the Phoenix area.
One, however, was Billy Joe Thomas, who lives in Southern

"When she got the call (for an order), she didn't hesitate a
second," Ballentine said. "She said yes and drove all night to
Phoenix with her baby and a quarter-pound of meth.

"She had the baby in one arm and a diaper bag with a
.38-caliber pistol in it on the other arm," Ballentine said of
her meeting with undercover officers.

Thomas was one of several people arrested before Wednesday's

"The baby was given to Child Protective Services to place in a
foster home," Ballentine said. "That makes the fourth child
Thomas has had taken away from her because of her drug dealings."

It took detectives several months to identify the major
suppliers of drugs and weapons to prisons.

"We couldn't wait much longer," Kulesa said. "The guys in
prison, who never did get the deliveries they arranged for with
our source, figured out he must have screwed them."

The police got their man out of prison and, soon after, sprang
the raid.

The raid, which hit eight Phoenix-area homes, involved
officers from the Phoenix Police Department, the Arizona
Department of Public Safety, the FBI, the Maricopa County
Sheriff's Office, the DOC and the federal Drug Enforcement

Among those arrested, authorities said, were Leonard
Archambault and Larry Frank, nationally known bodybuilders.

"They provided steroids in liquid form in bottles, injectable
stuff," Ballentine said. "Very popular in prisons."

Police Cmdr. Ralph Griffith, who heads Phoenix's
organized-crime bureau, praised the takedown of some rough

"Nobody got hurt today, there was no shooting, no violence,"
he said. "There was good police work involved in the
investigation, and there was excellent teamwork on the raid

Ballentine said Aryan Brotherhood members have since figured
out that a fellow prisoner betrayed them, and they want him

"They got so mad, they went looking for someone to kill him,"
Ballentine said.

Kulesa smiled and said, "They're trying to hire me for the

JACKSON, Miss. -- A white supremacist who sprayed a shopping
center in a largely black neighborhood with random gunfire left
neo-Nazi notes behind, leading police to conclude Saturday that
racial hatred sparked the deadly shooting.

Larry Wayne Shoemake, 53, was found dead inside the abandoned
restaurant where he had fired dozens of shots -- killing one
person and wounding 10 others -- before he set the building on
fire and perished in the flames Friday night.

The standoff began during peak business hours at the bustling
shopping center. Hundreds of shoppers and passing motorists
sought cover in buildings and ditches along the highway.

All of the victims identified by authorities were black. One
woman treated at a hospital and released was not identified.

Police gave no details about the notes left in Shoemake's
house, except to say that similar notes were left in multiple
locations in the home, indicating he wanted at least one to be

The notes appeared to indicate that Shoemake's white
supremacist views triggered the shooting rampage, said police
spokesman Lee Vance.

"It appeared that he sort of expected that his house would be
searched by authorities in the aftermath," Vance said.

D.Q. Holyfield, 49, was killed in the shooting. Seven others,
including his son, were treated for gunshot wounds. Others were
injured by flying glass and debris.

Pamela Berry, a police reporter for The Clarion-Ledger
newspaper, was shot three times while covering the story. She was
in good condition Saturday after surgery for a gunshot wound to
the neck.

The gunman's charred body was hauled out of the shuttered
PoFolks restaurant late Friday. An arson investigator said the
fire was started with gasoline.

With the body, police found two AK-47 assault rifles, three
empty 30-round clips, a MAC-11 assault weapon, a 12-gauge
shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle, and two handguns.

"He fired at least 100 rounds," Vance said.

A search of Shoemake's immaculate home, where he lived alone
with a small mongrel dog, turned up an arsenal that included at
least 15 to 20 firearms and three 80-pound boxes of ammunition,
Vance said.

Shoemake had been in trouble with Jackson police before, with
arrests on misdemeanor charges of drug possession and drunk
driving, Vance said.

Besides the neo-Nazi notes, police also found white
supremacist literature and regalia in the house. A Nazi flag, a
note and a copy of Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" were placed
alongside a Bible on the bed "like a presentation," Vance said.

Neighbor Dorothy Simpson said the suspected gunman had few

"He's a very weird neighbor. He never spoke to anyone,"
Simpson said. "He wasn't very neighborly."

The Reporter (tm)- Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA

by Peggy Breister April 9, 1996


Business cards that describe a local white supremacist group were
among items that were removed from several skinheads arrested
over the weekend.

The cards refer to "The Fond du Lac Boot Boys" and provide a
local post office box number and a picture of a Celtic cross.

Fond du Lac police said they believe the skinheads call
themselves the "Boot Boys," Fond du Lac's version of a white
supremacist group.

Nine skinheads were arrested Saturday night after a fight
involving skinheads, blacks, and Hispanics outside a house at
100 S. Military Road. A police officer who had been keeping an
eye on the groups saw the skinheads rush the porch and pick up
rakes and shovels on the lawn. No one reported being hurt,
according to police reports.

Weapons that were confiscated from skinheads included a Swiss
Army knife, a hooked metal tooth pickl, and a pipe. Officers
found 4 shells from a .22 caliber long rifle in an 18-year-old
skinhead's pocket.

Police Officer Lee Mikulec noted in his report that the groups
had been playing "tag" all night. This involved the groups
keeping watch on each other as they moved around the city.

Those arrested ranged in age from 15 to 19. Five adults were
expected to appear in Fond du Lac County Circuit Court today on
charges of disorderly conduct. Four juveniles were processed
Monday through juvenile court.

A 19-year-old Michigan man, who was among those arrested
Saturday, was interviewed Monday by police detectives.

When police first spoke to the man, they said they were under the
impression that the man was a skinhead recruiter.

He denied being a recruiter, but admitted he has skinhead
beliefs, said Police Capt. John Hoffman. "He said he was
influential, but not a leader," Hoffman said.

The man told police he moved here one or two months ago.

When he was arrested, the man was carrying several business cards
for the "National Alliance," a white supremacist organization
based in Hillsboro, W.Va.

With the business cards was literature with the National Alliance
creed. The creed reads: "We believe......That the future is what
we make it. That we have a responsibility for the racial quality
of the coming generation of our people. That no multi-racial
society is a healthy society. That if the white race is to
survive we must unite our people on the basis of common blood,
organize them within a progressive social order and inspire them
with a common set of values. That the time to begin is now."

A 16-year-old skinhead told police that his group was violent,
but changed his story and said they were only violent when they
needed to be, according to police.

A newsletter with white supremacist tidbits was also confiscated
from the skinheads. The newsletter contained information on White
Power rock music labels, T-shirts, and literature. It also
provided the names and addresses of several prisoners in case a
newsletter subscriber needed white supremacist art.

Most of the skinheads interviewed Saturday night by police
officers spoke proudly of their affiliation with white
supremacist organizations, according to police reports.

When some of the skinheads were questioned by officers, they
responded "Achtung," the German word for "attention," said Lt.
William Makowski.

Officers noted that the group had shaved heads, and wore black
steel-toed boots with red laces and bomber jackets trimmed with

Several of the skinheads sported tattoos. One man had the words
"White Power" tattoed across his shoulder blades with a swastika
between the words.

Officers are checking into reports from skinhead that a black
male armed with a shotgun left the house at 100 S. Military
during Saturday night's confrontation. No shotgun has been found,
according to police reports.

A Hispanic family lives at the house. Hoffman said the skinheads
were arrested because they were the agressors in the brief fight.

He said police officers have had contacts with people at 100 S.
Military in the past, but they did not apperar to cause
Saturday's problem.

"If this fight had occured at Forest (Avenue) and Main (Street)
we would have arrested both groups," Hoffman said. "But if you're
in your house and someone storms your porch with weapons, we're
going to arrest the persons invading your domain."



On April 9, I uploaded Supplement 26 to bulletin
subscribers. The _Wall Street Journal_ piece, "A Plan That's Bad
to The Bone," was an eloquent attack on the rehabilitation of
Croatian fascism by the Tudjman regime in Zagreb. At the time, I
didn't realize that the post originated from Aleksandar Stojsic
<slavonac@primenet.com> -- that is, until I checked out his web

http://www.primenet.com/~slavonac -- the "home" of the Chetniks
on the web.

Anti-communist, pro-imperialist, the Chetniks raise the
regressive banner of Serbian "nationalism" as justification for
mass murder. Crushed by Tito's partisans, a _multi-ethnic_
workers' army that smashed the Third Reich's Panzer divisions and
their Ustashi collaborators, the Chetniks have harbored "dreams"
of a "Greater Serbia" -- and all that follows in its wake.

Stojsic was given the boot. Thought y'all should know.

Terrordome." -- P.E.
