The New Wave of White Supremacist Violence - Tulsa FBI
Details are still sketchy in the murders of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife in Texas and in the slaying of Colorado prisons director Tom Clements, but investigations seem to be leading to white supremacist prison gangs in both cases. The 211 Crew in Colorado and the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas appear to be connected to the latest spate of murders directed against law enforcement officers and prosecutors. White supremacists appear to have declared open season on police officers, judges and attorneys associated with the justice system. White supremacist violence directed at government officials and law enforcement agents has become a source of increasing concern for the FBI and for independent organizations that monitor hate groups, as white supremacists continue to commit murders and other violent crimes against racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants and interracial couples. Over the last four years, white supremacists have been responsible for a number of attacks on American citizens and law enforcement officers. Although the total number of white supremacists remains small, they are an increasing threat to police officers and judges as well as a threat to racial, ethnic and religious minorities in many of our communities.
