Three members of the Ku Klux Klan who had worked in Florida’s state prisons were arrested on Thursday in an alleged plot to kill a black inmate upon his release, authorities said.
The men were plotting to kill the inmate in retaliation for his getting into a fight with one of them, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said in a statement.
Two of the men currently work for the Florida Department of Corrections, and the third was a former employee, officials said.
Officials said the defendants were members of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist organization, and were each charged with conspiring to commit murder.
