The Nation

November 03, 1987

A prosecution witness in the Denver trial of four people accused of civil rights violations in the slaying of radio host Alan Berg testified that The Order discussed "bluntly annihilating the Jewish race" before Berg's death. Denver Daw Parmenter said the white supremacist group planned to attack institutions it believed were controlled by Jewish power, "including the media." Parmenter's testimony came as the federal trial of Bruce Pierce, 33, David Lane, 48, Richard Scutari, 40, and Jean Craig, 54, all members of The Order, entered its second week. The jury was seated Friday. Berg, 50, who often criticized white supremacists on his show, was killed by machine-gun fire outside his Denver town house on June 18, 1984.
