German law enforcement officials have all the tools to proactively address right-wing violence – as his successful investigation suggests as an undercover FBI agent in the 1990s, Michael German said in an article in the Guardian.

German, a fellow at the Brennan Center for Freedom and the National Security Program, explained that there are currently 52 federal terrorist laws available to fully address domestic political violence. Extremists on vulnerable communities can also use the laws of organized crime and conspiracy to dismantle white fanatical gangs.

“Ministry of Justice surveys of victims of crime estimate that there are approximately 230,000 violent hate crimes annually, but federal prosecutors prosecute only about 25 defendants for hate crimes each year”

He pointed out that when white nationalists commit fatal attacks such as shooting in the city of El Paso, Texas, these crimes fit the legal definition of domestic terrorism. Sixth. So when FBI agents or prosecutors initially describe extreme right-wing violence as hate crimes or gang crimes, they underestimate the priority of these cases, limit the resources available and narrow the scope of investigations.

Even worse, Michael German adds, as a matter of policy, the Ministry of Justice refers the vast majority of hate crimes to police, prosecutors and local people, who are often unqualified or  least interested in pursuing these cases.
