Origins
• The NLR originated in the
California when the leader of
the Aryan Brotherhood began to
recruit members in the
California youth prisons. The
became the NLR and served
under the Aryan Brotherhood
from the 1970s until the Aryan
Brotherhood was cracked down
on by law enforcement. After
that the NLR grew into their
own gang, and landed on the
police radar in 1990, as a prison
gang. There is no known
founder of NLR, but John
Stinson was the leader of Aryan
Brotherhood that began to
recruit members into what
would become NLR.
