Three Florida Ku Klux Klan members are behind bars today for plotting to kill an African-American inmate

What makes the story more complicated is that the three men were corrections officers. According to the NY Daily News, the three men are a part of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

Thomas Jordan Driver, David Elliott Moran, and Charles Thomas Newcomb planned to kill the African-American inmate on his release date because the inmate had gotten into a verbal altercation with Driver. Driver and Moran had been working at the Corrections Reception and Medical Facility in Lake Butler, Florida for years while Newcomb was a former prison employee. Newcomb is being held on $750,000 bond in the ALachua County Jail while Driver and Moran are being held in the Union County Jail..
