Official: Aryan Brotherhood plays substantial role in Texas' Tarrant County crime

FORT WORTH -- A Texas prison gang known for extreme violence and illegal drug dealings has deep roots in Tarrant County, a local drug official said Tuesday. Investigators have explored possible connections between the group and the killing of prosecutors in Kaufman County, according to news reports. But they aren't talking about it, and regardless of whether there's any link, the Texas criminal justice system will be dealing with the Aryan group for quite a while to come.
