White Supremacist Was Also White Opportunist
Frazier Glenn Miller, AKA Frazier Glenn Cross, the man accused of killing three people at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, turned on other supremacists when it was convenient for him.
Miller became a star witness in both [a] murder trial and in a sedition case against 13 fellow white supremacists.
Miller had proved himself to be not so much a white supremacist as a white opportunist when he found himself facing decades in prison on weapons charges in 1987. He has said that a lead prosecutor threatened to pile on individual sentences on various charges until they totaled 200 years.
Miller made a deal for just five years.
And he would only have to serve three.
“I was to plead guilty to one count of felony possession of a hand grenade and answer all questions posed to me by the authorities,” Miller later wrote in his autobiography. “In return, they would recommend a 5-year prison sentence, immunity from any further prosecution by either state or federal authorities, and entrance into the Federal Witness Protection Program which included the financial support of my family while I served my sentence.”
He added, “A five-year sentence sounded a little more palatable than 200, so I accepted.”
Miller had a half-dozen FBI agents for bodyguards when he arrived in a North Carolina courtroom in 1989 to testify against Douglas Sheets, a junior member of the supremacist organization Miller created and led, the White Patriot Party.
