KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police in Raleigh, N.C., wrote an incident report after finding F. Glenn Miller Jr. in the car, said Douglas McCullough, who in 1987 prosecuted Miller on charges of possessing hand grenades and mailing a threatening communication.

“It was a male prostitute in a vehicle, and it was a Raleigh Police Department incident report,” said McCullough, now a judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals. He told The Kansas City Star that the details in the report were “salacious” and that the male prostitute was known to police.

“I don’t know if they actually took him into custody or just did an incident report about it because the police knew who he was,” McCullough said. “But I’m quite sure it was never prosecuted or anything like that.”

McCullough said he and other federal authorities learned of the incident as they were investigating Miller in 1987. He said that was the only case involving a possible sex crime that authorities heard of in connection with Miller.

“That is the only incident that I was aware of, was this one-time incident,” McCullough said. “I’m sure he won’t be happy that all of that is being dredged back up again now.”

Miller, 73, who also goes by Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr., was arrested April 13 outside a school near the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park. He is accused of killing a doctor, his teenage grandson and a mother of three outside the community center and the nearby Village Shalom senior living center.

The federal case against Miller began when he and two comrades were arrested in a trailer in Ozark, Mo., after mailing a “Declaration of War.” The document, among other things, established a point system for the assassination of federal officials, blacks, Jews, gays and others.

In the trailer, authorities found a large cache of weapons and explosives. Miller cut a deal with prosecutors, agreeing to cooperate fully with a federal investigation into the existence of a seditious conspiracy of white supremacists plotting to overthrow the government. In return, prosecutors recommended that the court sentence Miller to five years in prison. The judge followed their recommendation, and Miller was released in 1990 after serving less than three years.

McCullough, who sat in on interviews with Miller in 1987 after his arrest in Missouri, said the incident with the prostitute was surprising because of Miller’s venomous and public hatred of blacks and Jews.

McCullough said he knew of no public record of the incident.

But ABC News reported Thursday that in a recorded phone call with the Southern Poverty Law Center last fall, Miller said he had lured the prostitute to the meeting with the intention of beating him.

Trump mob storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021

Reprinted with permission from Alternet

Some of the January 6 rioters who are facing federal criminal charges are now saying, as part of their defense, that they were misled, brainwashed or unfairly manipulated by then-President Donald Trump, MAGA media and/or the QAnon cult. And one of the rioters who is using that type of defense is QAnon supporter Doug Jensen, who is saying that he was a "victim" of false information from the far-right conspiracy movement.
