Alabama man admits to hiring ‘Klansman’ to hang black neighbor ‘like an animal’ | The Raw Story: An Alabama man admitted Thursday to trying to hire a man he believed was a Ku Klux Klansman to kill his neighbor, who is black and a registered sex offender.
According to court documents, 29-year-old Allen Wayne Densen Morgan told an undercover FBI agent that he wanted to see the neighbor “hung from a tree like he is an animal” and have his genitals cut off.
Morgan, of Munford, Ala., said he believed the neighbor had raped his wife sometime in August.
FBI agents said Morgan knew his neighbor had been arrested in 2008 and charged with sexually abusing a 13-year-old victim.
Authorities said Morgan told agents that he’d tried to “force a confrontation” with his neighbor Aug. 22 by firing “multiple rounds of ammunition” at him on the street outside their homes.
Agents said the man ran away, and Morgan assumed he must be guilty of raping his wife because the neighbor did not try to stand his ground or reason with him.
