We talk about the KKK, white supremacists, and all kinds of white identity extremists that are in law enforcement across America in our writings on this site and on our youtube channel @ chart-a-box.
The central issue of white identity extremists in American law enforcement is one that has not received the focusEd spotlight it needs, and is one of the casualties of the movement against police violence ignited anew by the police lynching of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Politicians on both sides have failed and refused to acknowledge that there are serious issues in American law enforcement as a result of white supremacists that have infiltrated departments, something the Federal Bureau of Investigations warned about well over a decade ago.
Even after the death of George Floyd and others lynched by men wearing police departments uniforms and operating under the color of law. Two black half brothers lost their lives, one was found hanging from a tree whose death was ruled a suicide by police, and the other shot to death in Orange County California by police under the murkiest of circumstances.
We know that the police was always against the black community, we also know that the FBI warned that this was happening because we have seen their comments in chat rooms…we have seen the way they allow armed white militia members to walk over the rights of peaceable demonstrators opposed to police violence.…. And we have seen how they violently assault those who dare stand up for justice.
It comes as no surprise that they would wear their gang patches at a time when the streets are in chaos and the country is looking more and more like a powder keg.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has received calls and complaints about a deputy seen wearing symbols associated with far-right, anti-government extremist groups. ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (KABC) — The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has received calls and complaints about a deputy seen wearing symbols associated with far-right, anti-government extremist groups.
Video surfaced on social media taken during a George Floyd protest in Costa Mesa on Monday. The deputy was wearing sewn on patches for “OathKeepers” and “Three Percenters.”
Internal Affairs is investigating and the deputy is on paid administrative leave. Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes says such patches are prohibited and the timing couldn’t be worse. “The public sees that as a symbol or symbolic of oppression or racism or extremist views. That is not okay with me. I do not tolerate that behavior. My hope is that the public realizes that act of this one individual is not representative of not only the rest of the sheriff’s department, but it’s not representative of law enforcement,” Barnes said.
The name of the sheriff’s deputy seen in the video has not been made public.
