SPLC and Hate
Mr.

Take Me To Post Comment Form

The Southern Poverty Law Center was initially founded by Morris Dees to counter the many hate groups, particularly the Ku Klux Klan. When it was initially founded the KKK in the South enjoyed almost absolute impunity when accused of attacks and crimes against Blacks. Anybody familiar with that history can recall images of German Sheperds, water hoses, and outright assassinations used to counter or try to stop Equal Rights being granted to Black people. Morris Dees successfully sued one coven of an Alabama KKK that escaped justice from the criminal justice system for the killing of a Black Man. He won a multi-million dollar verdict for the family of the murderrd black man by the white hate group. And he has gone on to bankrupt various other Klan groups.

Though racism is not as prevalent as it once was, racism and hatred still run deep in some Americans who form groups consisting of violent Extremists that foster violence directed at the Federal Government and minorities. Though all Hate groups cannot be entirely known many can be found out and exposed by the SPLC. With the recession of overt terroristic attacks against Blacks, other violent extremists groups such as right wing militias have emerged over time.

The SPLC has identified more than 1,000 hate and extremists groups in our nation. The SPLC is committed to providing law enforcement with the latest and best intelligence about these groups' activities and members. The SPLC is in contact with agencies at every level including the FBI and Secret Service.

The SPLC helps in providing free training to Law Enforcement.
1. On-site trainings helps officers of the Law learn Hate group symbols and activity; the threat potential of specific groups, and how they should respond to hate group activities.

2. The SPLC's Intelligence Report magazine: containing vital information to combat extremists, goes to more than 55,000 law enforcement officers four times each year.

3. The SPLC provides an interactive Hate Map which helps Law Enforcement bodies locate extremist groups in their area.

The SPLC recently teamed with an Arkansas Police Chief whose patrolman son and his partner were murdered by "Sovereign Citizen", a Hate group located in Arkansas. The partnership between SPLC and Arkansas Police produced a training video that teaches officers how to recognize this hate movement.

The Chief "believes that his son and his partner might be alive today if they had recognized "the warning signs of the hate group "Sovereign Citizen."

SPLC has distributed more than 50,000 copies of this video-free of charge- to law enforcement agencies across the United States.

The support of SPLC should be taken seriously. As private individual Americans we should be vigilant regarding Hate Groups and how to recognize them and their sympathizers.
