With all the chaos that is being created in this country by the far Right extremists the DOJ has put together a new domestic terrorism unit……
The Department of Justice is opening a new unit to investigate acts of domestic terrorism, a top national security official said during a Senate committee hearing Tuesday.
- While there is no specific federal domestic terrorism statute, the federal government defines domestic terrorism as criminal acts dangerous to human life that appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce civilians or the policy of a government. It can also use other criminal charges when pursuing domestic terrorists.
- Lawmakers and active and former FBI agents have called for the creation of a specific statute to make such acts a federal crime, though others have argued it would be redundant or fear it could be used to crackdown on constitutional acts of political dissent.
You mean there is no one unit that tracks this crap?
I mean there has been the violent fringe for many decades and it just kept getting worse and yet no one was focusing on these slugs of society?
For me that does not say much positive for the record of the DOJ….they seem to focus more on white collar crime more than the pigs that want to destroy our government.
The DOJ has always had serious lack of foresight…they are always reacting instead of heading violence off at the pass.
I am glad that someone finally woke up and came to the conclusion that we have a major problem with domestic terrorism….now we will see just how serious they are at preventing stuff like 06 January.
Personally I am not impressed by the announcement…..
