Several AB members or sympathiz- *rs recently have become 
informants, murder contracts have been ortered for what source 
believes are trivial reasons, and the life of members in prison 
has become treacherous because of a lack or dependability between 
members .

RACKETEER ENTERPRISE INVESTIGATION 



History- 
California State Prison System 

In the late 1950's and until the early 1960's, 
there existed at California State Prison, San Quentin, a 
group of white inmates known as the Blue Bird &ang. As 
time went on, it became apparent to other white inmates 
that a more powerful gang was needed to protect white inmates 
from the Black and Mexican prison spawned gangs that were .. 
in power in the California Dftp aT^ment nf Correction s nrison t>*^

ecome 




I will stand by my brother, 

My brother will come before all others t 

My life is forfeited should I fail my brother, 

I will honor my brother in peace and war. 

In 1967, at San Quentin, the name AB was adopted, 
and the concept of the AB was formed, that is, "one is in 
for life and the only way out is by death." 

Originally, one had to be part Irish in order 
to be a member of the AB. The AB wanted whites who could 
stand on their own feet, but they reached a point where 
they did not care about anyone except the ABs, and became 
a white racist group. They picked the name because it showed

white supremacy and the clover, because it is the sign of 
the Irish and the original members had to be part Irish. 
They use the sign "666", which is the sign of the beast, 
and the swastika, which means one is an outlaw. The sham'- 
rock is symbolic of the AB and especially win

Nuestra Familia (NF), (a Mexican California prison spawned 
gang) member, at Deuel Vocational Institution, Tracy, Califor 
nia. The NF had been at war with the Mexican Mafia (MM/EME) 
since 1968 and EME members had been friends with AB members. 
When Castro. was killed, the AB and EME formed 'an alliance 
to help each other and to fight the NF. 

The AB grew in size in the California prison system 
and today, it is estimated that there- are more than 100 
members. They carry out murder contracts, sell narcotics, 
and control gambl ing and th e sale of "pun^s" within prison 
walls. AO — ^™.

of fear with some brutal murders. 

The.AB, in early 1980, formed a 



ed this feeling 




now an estimated 100 - 160 members oi 
system. 

Recently, a Los Angeles source has come forth and pro- 
vided information regarding the AB. Source has provided accurate 
information regarding two murders in the Federal prison 
system, and has also furnished information regarding 58 
individuals suspected to be members or sympathizers of the 
AB and the EME, both in and out of prison. 




It is a hard fact that most of the AB will be 
paroled or discharged at some future date, and in view 
of members* lifelong commitments, it would be naive to 
think he would not remain in contact with his brothers. 
The rule of thumb is that once on the streets, one must 
take care of his brothers that are still inside. The penalty 
for failure to do so is death upon the members return to 
the prison system. Some of the paroled members' duties

would be to supply his brothers inside with drugs, or to 
make hits on the street as commanded by his brothers. 

A review of the atrocities attributed to the prison, 
gangs inside of our nation's maximum security prisons should 
shed some light on the potential of what these gang members 
can do with little or no supervision while out on the streets. 

Source information indicates that the AB has a 

strangle hold on some of the top LCN members who are inside 
the prison system, so now it allows the AB access to the 
funding of organized crime.

puncture wounds to the upper chest, back and abdomen area. Due 

to the severity of Baumgarten's condition, he was immediately 

transferred to Evangelical Community Hospital, Lewisburg, PA, 

at approximately 9:55 a.m., and was pronounced dead at approximately 

10:00 a.m. 

The crime scene was immediately secured and Special 
Agents CSAsl of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) responded 
to the Institution. 

Institution authorities initiated a search of the 
A, B, C and D-Blocks of the Institution. In addition a search 
was conducted of the outside perimeter grounds in an attempt to 
locate any physical evidence. The above searches failed to produce 
any weapon ts], articles of clothing or any suspected physical 
evidence. Inmates located within the living quarters at the time 
of the incident were secured and ultimately checked for any possible 
cuts, bruises, blood stains or torn clothing. All of the above 
met with negative results. 

During the crime scene search physical evidence (blood) 
was found on the folding gate restraining partition located within 
the recreation area connecting C-3 and A- 3 Blocks. It was discovered 
that it is possible for an individual to crawl underneath this 
restraining gate if assisted by a second individual who would hold 
the gate up from the floor. Further investigation of the area 
revealed a blood stain on the C-3 recreation area door. This 
indicates that the escape route taken by the assailants was through 
the C-3 recreation area door, through the recreation area itself, 
underneath the partition gate and back into A-3 (A-Block, third 
floor).. 

During initial interviews of inmates located within 
the immediate area of the incident, an inmate eyewitness to the

felt that the murder of Baumgarten occurred in 
retaliation for the murder of Cadillac Smith which occurred at 
the USP, Marion, Illinois, earlier in 1982. 

(also believed there was a second inmate involved 

in the murder of Bau mgarten. 




was placed in the Institution Administrative Detention unit. 



As the investigation progressed, it was determined 
necessary to place a number of inmates into the Administration 
Detention Unit, either for possible involvement in the murder 
or for having been identified as inmates who would most likely 
retaliate on behalf of the victim. 

During the week of December 13-17, 1982, Institution 
staff and Special Agents of the FBI conducted numerous interviews 
of inmates towards the ultimate development of cooperative 
inmate witnesses. 




On December 15, 1982, 




During the middle part of November, 1982, victim 
Baumgarten had arranged to purchase a quantity of cocaine which 
was to be received within the Institution from the outside over 
the weekend of November 27-28, 1982. Arrangements were made and 
$1,000 was sent to cover the purchase of the cocaine. Due to this 
transaction, Baumgarten began purchasing drugs on credit within 
the Institution, using the' imminent arrival of the cocaine as 
collateral. 

The purchase of the cocaine was being directed by 
another inmate within the Institution whose identity was not known 
to the source. During the period of time that the cocaine was to 
arrive at the Institution, shakedowns by USP authorities resulted 
in various inmates getting "busted" for narcotics. This apparently

led to the postponement of the introduction of the cocaine. 
Simultaneously, Baumgarten continued to purchase drugs on credit 
and got further in debt, 

Baumgarten owed 

two papers of heroin valued at 

began charging interest on the debt and started pressuring 
victim for payment.

During the following days, Baumgar-^^^ojit^Tued stalling MC- 
for time, in order to obtain the money owed td^BUHMj^H indicating 
on three separate occasions that Jh^nonev had alreaa^een sent. 
When the payment did not arrive, ^^^^^^^B again demanded payment. 



& 



During breakfast on the morning of December 9, 1982, 
prior to the murder, Baum^^gn^^^>rmed the confidential source

During the period from December 1982 to the present, 
information has been received and compiled indicating the presence 
of a large group of inmates within the USP, Lewisburg, which has 
organized into a retaliatory and murder organization. This group 
is comprised of Black inmates from the Washington, D. C. area 
and is known as the "D. C. Blacks". A large segment of this group 
also has membership and/or ties with the Moorish Science Temple. 
Information has been received indicating that this group of inmates 
have banded together and have plotted the murders and attempted 
murders of white inmates at the USP their "cause" being the 
retaliation of the killing of Raymond "Cadillac" Smith who was 
purportedly murdered at the USP,^arion, Illinois, by incarcerated 
members of the Aryan Brotherhood* (AB) . 



To support the above information, on December 11, 1982, 




fcfto 



an imminent "war" between the AB and the 
Leavenworth, and USP, Lewisburg. The "war

Recently , AB associate Eros Timm'was "f oumr-^tabbed 
to death in his cell at the United States Penitentiary, Lewisburg, 
Pennsylvania. Timm suffered from approximately forty stab wounds 
to his head, neck and chest. Though many inmates have been 
placed under suspicion, at this time none have been charged. 
Investigators at Lewisburg believe that Timm was a victim of the 
recent retaliation efforts of a group called the D.C. Blacks

power and control within the prison system. It is also known 
that the AB also strives for the same type of control. Investi- 
gators believe that the violence between * these two groups is only 
in the "budding" stage. It cannot be determined, at this time, 
whether or not this violence will spill over into the California 
State prison system.

SOURCE INFORMATION 

During this Investigative period, a number of confid- 
ential sources have provided information regarding the activities 
of the AB. 



One such source advised that the AB has spread through- 
out the Federal prison system, and has developed links with other 
organized crime groups on the streets. In the early 1970s, 
members of the AB started going to Federal prisons for crimes 
such as bank robbery and narcot: 
members to do Federal time, wer<

As was the policy In the past, they began 

rcruiting lor the AB, pnly now they had the entire country 
to pick from. 




The Federal prison system held many well-to-do 
members and associates of Italian organised crime groups, who 
were powerful on the streets, but were at the mercy of any "nut 
with a knife" while in prison. The plan was to have these 
La Cosa Nostra (LCN) figures pay protection to the AB, while 
at the same time, to ingratiate themselves with these mobsters. 
In return, the mobsters were safe while inside the walls, and 
rere obligated to offer the AB members a "slice of the pie" on

ARYAN BROTHERHOOD MURDERS 
IN THE FEDERAL PRISON SYSTEM 

Since the inception of the AB in the Federal prison 
system, the organization has planned and carried out a number of 
brutal prison murders. During this investigative period, a

murders involve members and associates of the LCN, AB, EME, and a 
Washington D.C. based street gang known as the D.C. Mob. One such 
murder, that of D.C. Mob leader Raymond "Cadillac" Smith in 1982, 
has been followed by many other murders, thought to be retaliatory

He feels that the killing of correctional officers will • 
escalate in order for the AB f s to establish their authority through 
f ear . .• j 

He feels that the way to solve the problem of the 
growing AB population in the Federal and State system is to 
segregate all of the members of.the AB , as well as their associates. 
The State and Federal systems should get together and put all of 
the gangs in one prison and keep them locked down as that is the 
only way they can be kept from growing. 

There is a chance that the AB ' s and MEXICAN MAFIA (EME) 
could cooperate with the BLACK GUERRILLA FAMILY (BGF) , but he feels 
that in a period of time, that cooperation will deteriorate, as 
there are some diehard racists in the AB . 

He feels that the killing of the correctional officers.

The AB ' s are doing the hits on correctional officers 
more than members of EME because "they have all day", which means 
most are doing very long terms in the Federal prison system while 
members of EME will be getting out in a short period. 

He feels that the murders of the correctional officers 
will spread like cancer lesions and the way to stop these murders 
is to localize the members of the AB and put them all in a single 
prison. This will stop the spread of the cancer. He feels that 
whoever interfers with the AB, whether it be correctional officers 
or inmates , will be killed at this time . ^_ BM _ J .. vA^"

LA 183B-1754 




killing of the correctional officers was to set an example to 
the other correctional officers that they are not to mess with 
AB members or they would be killed. The ABs know there is no 
dealth penalty for killing a correctional officer, so they are 
utilizing members who are doing alnhnf time to kill co rrectional 




tic. 






They know that 

they cannot win, but by killing they can set~an example of honor 
in favor and support in the eyes of the inmate population. The 
more they establish themselves in this concept, the more they 
become established as a true organized crime organization in 
the prisons and streets. The ABs feel that the Federal System 
has been abrasive to them, so the killings of correctional officers 
is retaliatory in nature and an attempt to establish a base on 
fear which affects .both correctional officers and other inmates. 

.The ABs who are doing alot of time are carrying out 
murder contracts for the Mexican Mafia (EME) as some of them 
are about to get out and it would be a waste for short-timers 
to get a long beef, as they can best be utilized on the outside.

down" status and there has been an obvious "splitting" of / 
allies between AB and EME. There has been noted friction 
between the two groups and at the present time there is 
little overt communication between AB and EME except when 
actually required. 

Intelligence indicates that there is a plot in 
progress to take over the inst^^ionbv all inmates which ^i , 
is currently being discussed bj^^^^HH|among his followers. kl^-^ 
This plot is supposed to occur a^sooncis the institution 
"opens up" in the summer, 1984. This information has been 
furnished to authorities at Marion and emanate from a current 
member source.

__ :ontacts are to be made within the AB and

facilities and "on the streets^^Th^^mtention is to be a primary point of 
interest to be addressed b)^^0HHHHIB£Ource in his AB related efforts. h~l jQ

within that Division. Based upon a 
Bureau of Prisons (BOP], Washington, D.C., 

"meeting 

^^ FBI on 

the Prison Gang Program. SSA ^^H advised the BOP officials of the specific efforts 
currently being addressed under^ne Ormanized Crime Program in relation to all of 
the "big four" prison gangs. The specific problems currently being experienced by 
EOP in the form o^eang related violence directed against BOP staff was discussed 
in detail. SSA^^^^Baddressed the Bureaus' current investigative responsibilities 
in crime on a Gorerr^trit Reservation (CG^^^ad Irregul^^ugs in a Federal Penal 
Institution Statutes. Further, both SS^MHwand SSAa^^B stressed the neccessity 
of full cooperation between FBI and BOP, not%nly in tne^iwestigation of prison gang 
offenses , but the full dissemination of any and all gang related information regarding 
these offenses. This dissemination can facilitate, not only the criminal act under 
investigation, but also the potential impact of these isolated criminal acts on an 
overall RICO effort against the entire organization. 




i1ft> 



Throughout the meeting, BOP voiced full willingness and eager cooperation in 
assisting and joining in the FBI's efforts to address the prison gang problems. This 
joint cooperation can greatly aid in the investigations of CGR type cases as well 
as provide timely intelligence information from BOP as to prison gang activities 
within BOP and anticipated release of identified gang members on parole to a given 
region. 

These two meetings, AB Strategy meeting and BOP Gang Activity meeting, were 
highly beneficial for both the Organized Crime Section and the Personal Crimes Section 
as to identified programs within each section. The established direction and mutual 
areas of concern will be closely coordinated between all effected substantive desk 
supervisors .

THE PURPOSE OF THIS CC'MMUNICATION IS TO ADVISE 
THE BUREAU OF THE STATUS Of CAPTIONED INVESTIGATION WHICH 
IS DIRECTED TOWARD PROSECUTING THE ARYAN BROTHERHOOD 
PRISON GANG UNDER THE RICO STATUTE, 

in June/ isee, the united states attorney's 

OFFICE, 103 ANGELES, CA RECEIVED A WRITTEN REQUEST FROM 
THE LOS ANGELES SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT (LASD) REQUESTING 
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CONSIDER A POSSIBLE RICO STATUTE 
PROSECUTION OF AN INFAMOUS CALIFORNIA PRISON GANG 
KNOaN AS THE ARYAN BROTHERHOOD (AB). A COPY OF THE 
LETTER AND SIMILAR REQUEST WAS MADE TO THE LA OFFICE 
OF THE FEI. SINCE JUNE, 1936, A PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION 
HAS BEEN CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT OF THE ILLEGAL 
ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED BY THE ARYAN EROTHERHOOD AND THE 
FEASIBILITY OF PROSECUTION UNDER FEDERAL STATUTES. THE 
LASD HAS PROVIDED T>30 FULL TIME PRISON GANG INVESTIGATORS 
TO ASSIST THE LA OFFICE OF THE FBI. MEMBERS OF THE

california department of corrections (cdc) have also 
provided assistance and manpower in securing the 
necessary records and reforts cn the prison gang to 
make a determination as to the feasibility of 

PROSECUTION , 

AUSA NANCY WIE5EN STOCK HAS BEEN CONTACTED 
REGARDING CAPTIONED MATTER AND HAS AGREED TO 
PROSECUTE UNDER THE RICO STATUTE. 

SET FORTH BELOW IS AN OUTLINE OF INVESTIGATION 
CONDUCTED TO DATE RE THE ARYAN BROTHERHOOD ■ 

THE ARYAN E-RCTHERHOCD (AB) IS A PRISON GANG 
COMPOSED OF WHITE INMATES, THE GANG HAS MEMBERS 
SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. IN STATE AND FEDERAL 
PRISON FACILITIES. IN CALIFORNIA, THE GANG AROSE 
DURING THE 1360 'S AS A RESPONSE 5Y WHITE INMATES TO 
ATTACKS EY BLACK AND HISPANIC GANGS. THE A3 IS RACIST 
IN NATURE IN THAT THEY BELIEVE THAT THE WHITS INMATE IS 
SUPERIOR TO BLACK AND HISPANIC INMATES. THE AE IS 
NOT ASSOCIATED WITH OTHER OUTSIDE WHITE SUFREMICI3T

ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS THE AMERICAN NAZI PARTY, IN 
FACT, IN CALIFORNIA PRISONS, NO OTHER WHITE GROUP 
IS ALLOWED TO FORM IF THERE IS AN AB ORGANIZATION 
AT THE FACILITY; EVEN MOTORCYCLE INMATE GANGS ARE 
NOT ALLOWED TO BAND TOGETHER IN ANY CLOSELY 
ASSOCIATED GROUP WITHOUT RISKING AN ATTACK FROM 
THE A3. 

WHILE THE A3 WAS ORIGINALLY STARTED AS A 
MEANS OF PROTECTING WHITE INMATES FROM OTHER 
MINORITY GANGS, IT SOON PROGRESSED INTO A EUSINESS 
ABLE TO CONTROL NARCOTICS MOVEMENT AMONGST WHITE 
INMATES, THE ASSIGNMENT CF KEY PRISON JOBS TO AB 
ASSOCIATES, AND THE EXTORTION THROUGH THREATS OF 
VIOLENCE CF THE GENERAL WHITE INMATE POPULATION. 

BETWEEN LSSI-19SS, MOST OF THE CURRENT LEADERS 
OF THE AE HAD MANAGED TO GATHER THROUGH THE "SUBPOENA 
PROCESS" AT THE CALIFORNIA STATS CORRECTIONAL FACILITY 
IN CHINO, CA, GANG MEMBERS WERE KEPT IN PALM HALL. A

LEADERS MET CK A DAILY EASES IN THE YARD IK AN 

ATTEMPT TO BETTER ORGANIZE THE GANG. IT WAS 

DECIDED THAT SINCE EVERY A3 MEMBER HAD A VOTE AND 

HAD TO BE CONSULTED ON ALL DECISIONS REGARDING AH 

BUSINESS, THE GANG COULD NOT OPERATE EFFECTIVELY AND 

IN A TIMELY MANNER. IT WAS THEREFORE DECIDED THAT A 

COUNCIL OF EETWEEN 10-1Z INMATES EE SELECTED 

TO VOTE ON MAJOR ISSUES WITHOUT CONSULTING EVERY SINGLE 

MEMEER OF THE AB IN ALL THE PRISONS IN CALIFORNIA. 

IT WAS FURTHER DECIDED THAT A THREE MAN CCMMITTEE BE 

ELECTED WHICH WOULD HAVE AUTHORITY OVER ALL AE MEMBERS 

AND EVEN OVER THE COUNCIL OF 10-12. IT WAS FELT THIS 

WAS NECESSARY TO PUT A SMALL NUMBER OF AE LEADERS INTO 

A POSITION OF SUPREME AUTHORITY AT WHATEVER PRISON THEY 

WERE LOCATED. THESE INDIVIDUALS WERE BASICALLY SELECTED 

FOR THEIR LONG TIME PRISON ACTIVITY WITH THE A3 AND 

THERE PROPENSITY FOR VIOLENCE, LEADERS WERE ALSO SELECTED 

DURING THIS PERIOD FOR THE FEDERAL PRISON SYSTEM.

MESSAGES "KITES" WERE SENT TO ALL MEMBERS 
OF THE AB IK THE CALIFORNIA STATE AND FEDERAL SYSTEMS. 
ALL MEMBERS WERE ADVISED OF NEW RULES AND REGULATIONS 
AKD IT WAS HOPED THAT THIS WOULD ENABLE THEM TO MAKE MORE 
MONEY ON NARCOTIC SALES AND TO BE ABLE TO EXERT A 
GREATER INFLUENCE ON PRISON LIFE. IT WAS ALSO DECIDED THAT 
NO LONGER WOULD AN INDIVIDUAL HAVE TO MURDER AN ENEMY 
CF THE AB IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR FULL MEMBERSHIP. IN 
THE PAST, THE AB WAS KNOWN FOR ITS EXTREME VIOLENCE 
AND HAD DEVELOPED A BAD REPUTATION' AMONGST MOST PRISON 
GROUPS. IT WAS FELT THAT THE AB NEEDED DIFFERENT TYPES 
CF INDIVIDUALS WITH DIFFERENT SKILLS AND NOT JUST A 
MINDLESS 3UNCH OF MURDERERS. ATTEMPTS WOULD- THEREFORE 
BE MADE TO RECRUIT EXPLOSIVES EXPERTS, CHEMISTS, 
FEOPLE WITH LEGAL BACKGROUNDS, CONMEN , AND PEOPLE WHO 
WOULD BE ABLE TO RUM SCAMS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE THE 
PRISON. IT WAS ALSO DECIDED THAT GREATER CONTROL WOULD 
HAVE TO BE EXERCISED AGAIN ON INMATES WHO WERE AE 
MEMBERS AND WHO SUBSEQUENTLY PAROLED. IT WAS FELT THAT

A STRONGER OUTSIDE ORGANIZATION WOULD IMPROVE THE 
ABILITY OF INMATES IN THE PRISON SYSTEM TO CONTROL 

PRISON LIFE. 

ALTHOUGH THIS REORGANIZATION OF THE AB AT 
THE CALIFORNIA STATE CORRECTIONAL FACILITY, CHINO, 
CALIFORNIA WAS SUPPOSED TO REDUCE THE VIOLENT 
ACTS COMMITTED BY THE A3 AND ELIMINATE NARCOTICS USE 
BY INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS, THE RESULT '/-AS EXACTLY THE 
OPPOSITE. AS THE AB BECAME MORE AND MORE ADAPT TO 
MOVING NARCOTICa^INTO THE STATE PRISON SYSTEM, THEIR 
OWN MEMBERSHIP BECAME AMONG THE WORST ABUSERS. ALSO 
DUE TO THE INFLUX OF N ARCOTICS AND CONTROL GF THE 
DRUG TRADE, THE AB LEADERSHIP WAS IN A POSITION 
TO ORDER INDIVIDUALS WHO OWED THEM MONEY TO ASSAULT 
ALMOST ANYONE THAT FELL INTO DISFAVOR. T HE IMPOR TATION 
OF NARCOTICS INTO THE PRISON SYSTEM AND THEIR

VISITING AREAS TO BE SUBSEQUENTLY TRANSFERRED TO

ARE ALSO CONDUCTED OUTSIDE OF THE PRISON SYSTEM EY
