During a press conference addressing the recent shooting deaths of two Texas prosecutors, Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, was specifically asked about the suspected ties of the murders to the Aryan Brotherhood – a violent white supremacist gang.

Perry acknowledged that there was a concern, but explained that the state of Texas was investigating multiple gangs and drug cartels.

“It’s obviously open for interpretation and investigation. We will leave no stone unturned,” Perry stated. “Any organization that is operating in the state of Texas outside the bounds of our laws are going to be put on notice that we’re going to hunt you down and we are going to punish you and do our best to remove that type of threat to the safety of the citizens of the state of Texas.”

“Is it safe for prosecutors?” asked another reporter.

“Yes,” Perry answered shortly.
