In news from Florida, two members of the Ku Klux Klan who worked as prison guards have been convicted of plotting to kill an African-American prisoner after his release. Earlier this week, a jury in Columbia County, Florida, found David Elliot Moran and Charles Thomas Newcomb guilty of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder. A third Klansman, who also worked as a prison guard, pleaded guilty earlier this year.
