America’s foremost attorney for far-right extremists wanted “a little gravy,” then lied to cover it up. That’s just part of his twisted journey through a lax legal system. By Luke O'Brien 12/27/2018 03:09 pm ET Updated 20 minutes ago One morning this June, a group of lawyers filed into the office of the State Bar of Nevada and closed the door. It was summer in Las Vegas, the morning temperature already nearing 100 degrees, but inside the low-slung tan building, the lawyers had a chilly question to address: what to do about one of their own. Marc Randazza had been a problem for years. Randazza, who represents conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and many other far-right extremists, had long relied on lawyer buddies to pump his public image. By their telling and his own, Randazza was a First Amendment “badass.” But he was a combative badass, even vicious, and he’d left a trail of bad blood and trampled ethics behind him. Randazza had … [Read more...] about Alex Jones’ Lawyer Violated Legal Ethics By Soliciting Porn Bribes. Just How Dirty Is Marc Randazza?

Chapter 1 “Inmates Run This Bitch” Chapter 2 Prison Experiments Chapter 3 The CCA Way Chapter 4 “You Got to Survive” Chapter 5 Lockdown Chapter 1: “Inmates Run This Bitch” Have you ever had a riot?” I ask a recruiter from a prison run by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA). I take a breath. Am I really going to become a prison guard? Now that it might actually happen, it feels scary and a bit extreme. From the editor: Why we sent a reporter to work as a private prison guard I started applying for jobs in private prisons because I wanted to see the inner workings of an industry that holds 131,000 of the nation’s 1.6 million prisoners. As a journalist, it’s nearly impossible to get an unconstrained look inside our penal system. When prisons do let reporters in, it’s usually for carefully managed tours and monitored interviews with inmates. … [Read more...] about My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard: A Mother Jones Investigation

On July 4, 2013, one of Shane Johnson’s pals pushed through the front door of his trailer and announced that “a bunch of black guys” had just “said some shit to him.” Johnson was small and lithe, tattooed from neck to toe with swastikas, and his throat was inked with a portrait of Jesus and the words “I AM NOT A JEW.” As a teenager, he’d earned the nickname “Punchy” for his willingness to make up for his stature with an even shorter temper.

Johnson, who had been awake for three days on an Adderall and whiskey bender, led his posse to a nearby park where a band was performing an Independence Day concert for a crowd of families. Johnson didn’t see the kids who had … [Read more...] about Inside the Radical, Uncomfortable Movement to Reform White Supremacists
