Florida Prison Officers Charged With KKK Plot to Kill Black Inmate

Three KKK members who are current or former employees of the Florida Department of Corrections were arrested Thursday for allegedly plotting to kill a Black inmate.

The planned murder was to take place once the inmate was released from prison, according to Attorney General Pam Bondi.
