Escaped inmate’s chest tattoo linked to white supremacist prison gang
LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - The United States Marshals Service released photos of Casey White’s tattoos on Thursday night.
In the new pictures, White is seen with tattoos on both arms, his back and his chest. On the right side of his chest, White has a shield that has “SB”, lightning bolts and a swastika.
This logo is for the white supremacist prison gang known as the Southern Brotherhood. The Southern Brotherhood is an Alabama-based prison gang according to the Anti-Defamation League.
This logo is the standard emblem for members of the gang. The emblem is typically a shield divided into four sections with a different symbol in each section.
The symbols can include, “SB”, swastikas, SS lightning bolts, the number 23 or 14/23, the Confederate flag or other symbols.
The symbol, 14/23, references the “14 Word” slogan, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”. That slogan was coined by David Lane who was part of another white supremacist group, The Order.
White also has a Confederate flag tattoo on his back closer to his neck.
