Days after the U.S. Department of Justice published a scathing 163-page report detailing the Baltimore Police Department’s pattern and practice of racially biased policing, which included such examples as an anal cavity search conducted on a woman pulled over for a missing headlight, the Southern Poverty Law Center informed Planet Earth that the Baltimore City Solicitor’s Office had hired a well-established and respected neo-Nazi to fight for the city against, in part, African-Americans’ claims for monetary damages because of wrongful conviction. The lawyer, Glen K. Allen, was quickly terminated. He did not deny having once been a member of the National Alliance, but claimed he’d distanced himself from the group. As for his attendance at a 2007 “Holocaust Revisionist Conference,” yeah, he went, but he’s not a denier: according to the New York Daily News, he says he just “supports the right of Holocaust deniers to challenge the number of people killed.”
