White supremacist groups have infiltrated US law enforcement agencies in every region of the country over the last two decades, according to a new report about the ties between police and far-right vigilante groups.

In a timely new analysis, Michael German, a former FBI special agent who has written extensively on the ways that US law enforcement have failed to respond to far-right domestic terror threats, concludes that US law enforcement officials have been tied to racist militant activities in more than a dozen states since 2000, and hundreds of police officers have been caught posting racist and bigoted social media content.

The report notes that over the years, police links to militias and white supremacist groups have been uncovered in states including Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia.

This is apparent from the Rittenhouse Affair.

This is why you are supposed to believe the anti-fascist left is evil.. but trust your local skin head cop.
Strange days indeed.

This is not new. Gangs often infiltrate military and law enforcement. Military and law enforcement often join gangs. Using weaponry is a valuable skill set... for sale to the highest bidder.

It's nieve to think otherwise.

We allow brown shirts to claim a legitimate role in our politics will not end well. We need to recognize the threat and treat these people as terrorists. That is what they are and they should be treated as such. THEY ARE TERRORISTS! Al Quaeda and ISIS are no worse than these --------.

This has long been common knowledge and has been broadcast since 1991.

What garbage, the police are just doing their job. Ike Charles Barkley said "if you don't listen to the police nothing good will happen". If you do not do as the police ask then their will be problems no doubt. The brown shirts are the Antifa and BLM terrorist groups. Get a grip, the police are just there enforcing the laws, if you have problems with that change the laws.

#5 is correct.

My first direct exposure to white supremacists came from the ranks of the military while enlisted. That was pre-internet and pre-McVeigh.

Police and military recruit from the same population pool. It only makes sense the population, warts and all, are reflected in their ranks.

On the other hand, my first direct exposure to black supremacists came from the military.

A dark-green Marine was reading a book that I had noticed contained the words "White Devil". We were friends, curious I asked to read more. He handed me the book and I got a few pages in when it was made very clear by other angry dark-green Marines that I was not allowed to touch, much less read from that book! Their racism didn't piss me off, it was that they wouldn't let me study their book that pissed me off!

So, it swings both ways in my experience.

The police are murdering back people. I have a problem with that. We need to change the police. And get rid of the white supremacists in their ranks.

So we have learned nothing from Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

"Home-grown white nationalists are just as terrifying " and deadly " as radicalized Islamists."

Yeah GTJR, 7 bullets in a guys back is just the police doing their jobs. Ridiculous. You are an enbler of out of control police, just so you know.
