In October 2006 the FBI pt out a very strong warning with significant proof. It should have immediately forced a restructuring of our law enforcement system as they showed significant proof of “White supremacist infiltration of law enforcement” throughout the United States. This was represented as a serious national threat.
It seems that the deaths of non-whites at the hands of police is on the rise and very few analysis of the situation is directly linking back to the FBI’s direct warning. Why on earth has this been forgotten?

In near prophetic fashion, after the FBI’s warning, white supremacy extremism in the U.S. increased, exponentially. From 2008 to 2014, the number of white supremacist groups, reportedly, grew from 149 to nearly a thousand, with no apparent abatement in their infiltration of law enforcement.
This year, alone, at least seven San Francisco law enforcement officers were suspended after an investigation revealed they exchanged numerous “White Power” communications laden with remarks about “lynching African-Americans and burning crosses.” Three reputed Klan members that served as correction officers were arrested for conspiring to murder a black inmate. At least four Fort Lauderdale police officers were fired after an investigation found that the officers fantasized about killing black suspects.
It also goes onto say that white supremacists are not publicly tracked despite their link to violent crime and the serious threat they face.
This issue must not be forgotten and we should raise it as much as we can.
