FBI's warning of white supremacists infiltrating law enforcement [View all]


This article above has a link that takes you straight to the 2006 FBI report on white supremacists infiltrating law enforcement.

While I recognize that not all cops are bad, of course, I do have to wonder why SO MANY incidents like Minnesota and Louisiana are occurring. I don't believe that it is just a matter of media scrutiny. What do you do when the police chief is a racist? When it is the top that is tainted, what do you do? If your were in the rank and file, how could you possibly stand up to a culture that is spearheaded by the likes of the kkk & not risk retaliation?

While kkk members in law enforcement walk around with a badge on their chest, they hide behind a sheet. How can we identify them, do a sweep and remove law enforcement of this growing virus?

And while we ask our officers to to speak out against racism and do what is ethically right, how can they do so and be protected from their superiors and colleagues?

I would like to see more discussion and national attention brought to this matter. While this may not be the sole reason for our problems with law enforcement and racial relations, I think it has a strong influence.

Here's are some more articles worth reading:

It’s time to admit police have a history of connections with the KKK
