Several key events preceded the report. A federal court found that members of a Los Angeles sheriffs department...

" In near prophetic fashion, after the FBI’s warning, white supremacy extremism in the U.S. increased, exponentially. From 2008 to 2014, the number of white supremacist groups, reportedly, grew from 149 to nearly a thousand, with no apparent abatement in their infiltration of law enforcement." Its going to come to an head sooner or later and the FBI will have to deal with them like terrorists no matter how they shy away calling them exactly what they are.
