10.15am – Art Slocum, Underworld Economies; prison gangs’ role in criminal networking
Art Slocum - This lecture examines the ever changing role of the prison gang within local, national and international criminal economic networks. It highlights the fact that, although many gangs that originate in prison do so from a “stick with your own racial background for protection” origin, this is almost always forgotten, with the green colour associated with cash being the only colour where true loyalties lie. This point will be argued by use of a case study involving the Aryan Brotherhood prison gang, possibly the most notorious and visible in their racial beliefs and inspired actions.
