Neo-Nazi Lawyer Represents Baltimore in Suit Over Wrongful Arrest and 19-Year Imprisonment of Black Man
The NA was founded by William Pierce, who wrote the novel that served as the blueprint for the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. Allen is a longtime donor and member of the NA, and public documents identify him as such. Even so, he was recently hired as an employee by the Baltimore City Law Department and is now defending the city in a lawsuit alleging that police officers withheld and fabricated evidence to wrongfully arrest and convict an African-American man for a murder it appears he did not commit.
The lawsuit, filed in March of last year, alleges, “Mr. Burgess was convicted after the police withheld and fabricated evidence. In particular, the Defendants concealed statements of the victim’s son revealing that he had seen the offender and it was not Plaintiff. Rather than search for the real killer, the Defendants instead fabricated gunshot residue (“GSR”) evidence falsely inculpating Plaintiff in the crime.”
