Inside the New Push to Expose America’s White Supremacist Cops

by Kelly Weill

Fourteen years ago, the FBI documented racist infiltration of law enforcement in America. Now members of Congress want the full story.

In 2006, the Federal Bureau of Investigation knew America’s police forces had a white-supremacist problem. But the internal report the agency compiled that year was so heavily redacted that almost no one knows what it contained.

Now, amid national protests over police brutality against Black Americans and new scrutiny of racist cops, lawmakers are pushing for the report’s full release.

A nearly blank version of the October 2006 report, titled “White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement,” has circled the internet for years, after it was released in a Freedom of Information request. The few unredacted lines are worrying: In addition to warning of historic attempts by groups like the Ku Klux Klan to gain employment with police, it refers to white-supremacist leaders’ “recent rhetoric” calling on followers to infiltrate police forces.

As the country grapples with racist policing—both overt and in the form of unconscious but often deadly biases—28 members of Congress are calling on the FBI and Justice Department to release the full, unredacted document, which some experts say is more relevant than ever.

“This report is more than 14 years old,” Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA), who spearheaded the effort last week, told The Daily Beast. “God knows where these officers that were looked at back then are in the rank and file of our police departments.”

  1. The police? Where I live cops own big houses and have little danger. We don’t need a police department at all.

    Most big city police take up 60 % of local budgets. Time to trim the fat as you can see most cops have gotten fat on the take.

    Walmart workers on the grocery front line should make more.

    Fock the police as BLM will not go away.

    • So when you get mugged by a BLM rioter or your home is invaded by the same, who are you going to call?
      Who is it who is going to police the highways and city streets to make sure some idiot isn’t driving with their head up their arse or speeding down a busy street?
      Who is going to protect the businesses that provide the jobs, that provide the incomes that provides the tax base, that provides all the city and county services?
      Who are you going to call on when some criminal decides to make you the next victim? Black Lives Matter? ANTIFA?
      Statements like yours lake reason and common sense.
      Reforming policing in America makes better sense.

  2. Certainly an issue. Places where most people do not consider, like California, held by many on the right as a liberal coven of satanic communists, but a closer look, reveals repeated problems and bodies littering the area. Malibu/Lost Hills comes to mind, where the 8 officers where sharing photos of Kobe Bryant crash site like trophies. Matrice Richardson case, and the litany of stories about the “porn ranch”. The nastiest stuff happens in an area controlled by the right.
    Still waiting on the investigation report of the Kobe Bryant crash. Ray Donovan has not resumed since that. Still no viable explanation.

    • I believe, VT exposed the kiddie porn/ sex slave operations in Minneapolis….controlled by democrats.

  3. The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers association is not an extremist group. This is b.s. They are simply a group that respects the Constitution and people’s rights.
    Here’s the problem with lefties: they hate the Constitution and they don’t care much for certain rights as outlined by the Bill of Rights, especially the Second Amendment.
    here’s another problem of the lefties: they despise any group that supports the Constitution and Bill of Rights and further, using smears and lies to tar and feather them along side real extremist groups like the KKK.
    I’m getting sick and tired of the looney left and its Marxist/communist dogma. Besides supporting violent leftist groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, they are against capitalism in any form, and they support chaos and violence in the streets. So who has done the most damage: Those on the left.
