Brian Ackerman is a white supremacist who was the leader of the Revolutionary Aryan Warriors (RAW) Neo-Nazi group.
History[edit | edit source]
His group was investigated in the shooting of three schoolchildren, one of which died. He had a son named Kyle, who was killed by FBI Agent Dana Lewis during the boy's shooting rampage at his father's trial, which claimed the lives of a court officer, Judge T. Schuyler, and fellow supremacist Brannon Lee Redding. Ackerman later claimed that he was proud that his son died a "hero". It is revealed that Brian was hired by the dead boy's parents, Mark and Janice Whitlock, to kill him for the insurance money. (SVU: "Raw")
Five years later, Ackerman hired Seth Coleman to rape Lewis to get revenge for her killing his son. He is currently serving a life sentence without parole in Attica for murder in the first degree, attempted murder in the first degree, and conspiracy to commit terrorism in the first degree. He recruited for RAW in prison for a few years, but was put in solitary confinement for life as punishment for ordering Lewis' rape. (SVU: "Penetration")
