DENVER (AP) — The founding father of a white supremacist jail gang has died at a Colorado jail.
Colorado Division of Corrections spokesman Mark Fairbairn declined to say the place forty two-yr-previous Benjamin Davis had been housed, however says his demise on Saturday is being investigated as a potential suicide.
Davis was in jail for a November 1994 theft spree in Denver when a fellow inmate broke his jaw. He and one other inmate established the “211 Crew” in 1995 in response — with 211 being the California penal code for theft.
Davis was given one other 108 years in jail in 2007 for racketeering for conspiring to commit assaults in jail.
Gang members have been suspected of being concerned within the March 2013 capturing dying of Corrections Director Tom Clements at his house in Monument.
