Today in Things You Can't Unread: The former KKK leader who's accused of killing three people at Jewish centers was previously arrested when police caught him having sex with a black male prostitute, ABC News reports, as noted by Gawker. Officers in Raleigh, NC, caught Frazier Glenn Cross in a vehicle with the man, who was dressed as a woman. "It was pretty shocking because of his personal stances," says a former prosecutor. Cross later said he had sought out the prostitute in order to beat him, according to a recorded phone call.

Miller wasn't charged in that incident. Meanwhile, ABC reports that Cross received his last name from the FBI, which also gave him a new home and Social Security number when he left prison in 1990. He had been known as Frazier Glenn Miller when he was arrested in 1987, following a "declaration of war" on blacks and Jews. He had sent this declaration to thousands of white supremacists and politicians, ABC notes. On the run, he was eventually caught and agreed to a plea deal that saw him cooperate with the FBI. A civil rights activist, however, saw the cooperation as a "game": "I don’t think he had any intention of becoming a good witness. The guy was a stone-to-the-bone Nazi."
