Baltimore Cops Hired Neo-Nazi Lawyer in Case of Wrongful Arrest of Black Man

The Baltimore Police Department faces a lawsuit for doctoring evidence in order to secure the wrongful conviction of Sabein Burgess, imprisoned for 19 years until courts finally dismissed murder charges.

On Wednesday, the Southern Poverty Law Center published an exposé on a case against the Baltimore Police Department, alleging that they doctored evidence to secure the conviction of a black man, but the tale is not on the substance of the dispute but rather the attorney defending city cops against charges of prejudice and malfeasance.

Representing Baltimore in the dispute, attorney Glen Keith Allen has a checkered past that includes robust support for one of America’s most notorious hate groups, the neo-Nazi National Alliance (NA). Allen is a longtime donor and member of the organization, which was founded by William Pierce, the author of a novel that served as a blueprint for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
