Breaking news from the investigation of the murder of a district attorney, his wife, and a prosecutor in Kaufman County, TX: The wife of the former JP who has already been jailed in connection with the crimes now faces a capital murder charge herself. In fact, she has been charged ahead of her husband, who was arrested earlier this week.

Kim Williams, 46, is charged with one count of capital murder and is being held on a $10 million bond in the Kaufman County jail. She was admitted just before 3 a.m. Wednesday.

Law enforcement officials have said they expect capital murder charges to be filed against her husband, Eric Williams, the former justice of the peace there. Eric Williams, also 46, has repeatedly declared his innocence.

There appears to be no connection at all to the line that the Southern Poverty Law Center and MSNBC pushed in the wake of the crimes, that the Aryan Brotherhood was involved. The murders look now like a local vendetta.

Authorities believe the disbarred former justice of the peace held a grudge against McLelland and Hasse, who prosecuted him last year in the theft of three computer monitors. During Eric Willilams’ trial, McLelland and Hasse portrayed him as a thief and a man with a violent streak. They pushes [sic] for him to be sent to prison. He was given probation, but the case is on appeal.

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s so-called “hate map” has inspired one attempted mass killing. Its published speculation in the wake of the Kaufman murders created a national media push and one federal prosecutor resigned from a case involving the racist-crime syndicate Aryan Brotherhood.

Update: Moments ago, authorities in Kaufman County held a press briefing. They stated that Kim Williams, wife of the disgraced justice of the peace, was the shooter in the three murders. She is charged with capital murder and being held on $10 million bond.

Ask an Arab who causes all the trouble, he'll tell you it's Jews. Ask an SPLC member the same question, he'll tell you it's right-wing extremists.

Different worldviews, same detachment from reality.

The SPLC itself should be classified as a "hate group." All they do is spew leftist racialist propaganda.

The hunt for Aryan Brotherhood perpetrators for these murders was a big story even here in Canada. I'll bet news items which reveal these very different perpetators will be a minor story if it appears at all. It's far better for the Leftist Narrative if the idea of white hate groups is allowed to linger.

Our press are filthy liars who routinely commit slander and liable. Were you to ask people who committed these crimes people will only remember the lies and slander and will never be convinced of the truth.

Case in point - people still think the shooter of Gabby Giffords was some right-winger and probably Sarah Palin was involved.

But it's good business. Apparently Dees has a roster of good progressive folks who will cough up generous sums of money for him every time he sends them a letter that says " The Klan is coming! The Klan is coming!"

The SPLC now has no real purpose. They mostly seem track 1) non-violent groups who disagree with progressive orthodoxy 2) violent prison gangs (like the Aryans) which already have the FBI and every other enforcement agency on them, and 3) non-violent, but hateful, groups like klan groups and such. The SPLC's real purpose nowadays is to lump all these groups together so they can sensationalize and raise money.

Also Big Bison 70, your comment that the SPLC has no real purpose reminded me of talker Mark Levin's astute comment last week: that the US Senate has no real purpose anymore either. In the Constitutional ideal the Senate was to represent the interests of the States as States, via appointment by the State Legislatures. Today the Senate, elected by no one -- for election by all, or by too many is in effect election by none -- serves as some sort of entitled perverse House of Lords. The Lords of Mayhem and corruption.

Oh the SPLC has a purpose, and that is to feed the malevolent spirit of social division and chaos by inspiring the very thing it claims to be against -- class hatred and racial hatred. It is that ruining spirit which fed the real estate industry's practice of white-flight block busting during the 1960's and 1970's. It is an incredibility lucrative force to those willing to undertake it.

Modern Democratic electoral politics is almost 100% fueled by it, it is for a great "rain-making" force. Mr. Alinsky, Obama and Hillary's mentor, was a great advocate of it. It is the force that drives Obamas style of "community organizing".

If SPLC would stick to tracking actual, dangerous radical groups it might be somewhat useful. Unfortunately, its criteria for determining whether some organization is a "hate group" are too broad. It's useless as an actual barometer of hate.
