Volksfront, a white supremacist organization, was founded in 1994 by Randal Lee Krager and Richard Arden in the Oregon State Penitentiary. Leaders of the gang claim that the organization was formed for the advancement of the independent white working class. The VF’s goal is to raise awareness of social injustices brought against the Aryan race. Even though leaders of the gang claim to reject hate related violence, their actions prove differently. On March 23, 2003, several members of the Volksfront gang brutally beat and murdered 46 year old Randy Townsend, a black homeless man in Tacoma, Washington.
