For Frazier Glenn Miller Jr., a war declaration and a reduced sentence

In December 1987, he was facing 15 years in prison and half a million dollars in fines after mailing a “Declaration of War” to authorities and white activists across the country. In a letter to the judge, Miller said his declaration was wrong. Miller cut a deal with prosecutors, agreeing to cooperate fully with a federal investigation. In less than three years, he was a free man.
