The FBI Tags ‘Black Identity Extremists’ as a Growing Threat for Violence Against Cops

In a leaked FBI counter-terrorism report, “black identity extremist” are described as a domestic threat for attacks against law enforcement. The report states that police officers are targeted by black extremists who subscribe to a belief system in which law enforcement is perceived as a threat to African Americans and that violence is a reasonable response to perceptions of police brutality. [This isn’t exactly news to anyone who has been following events for the past several years, but it is refreshing to see the FBI publicly acknowledging reality. Now, if they only will do something about it.] -GEG
