Michael Thompson was a leader in the Aryan Brotherhood (AB) prison gang. He has been in prison since 1973, and has been sentenced to additional life terms for crimes commited behind bars. Michael Thompson was born October 2, 1951 (according to prison records), in Bakersfield, California, coming from a European and Native American background. He stands almost 6 feet, 4 inches (192 cm) tall and has a massive figure. He was a former high school football star. Contrary to some reports, Michael was never a troubled teenager, but his mother's boyfriend didn't want all seven of her children. The two systematically started to place the children elsewhere, and Michael was put in a boys' home. His sister was sent to an orphanage, and later put up for adoption. His older sisters were pregnant and married by the time they were 16, and his older brother was forced to enlist in the military by his mother, who had forged his birth date. Thompson moved from the boys' home to a foster home, which was a working horse ranch in Orange County, California. He attended Villa Park High School, where he excelled in football and was an A-B student.
