When it comes to political and ideological violence, we must be aware of the “Lone Wolves”.
Lone Wolves have been responsible for some of the most brutal terrorist attacks in history, including the first vehicle bombing, major midair plane bombing, hijacking, and product tampering, as well as the anthrax letter attacks in the United States.
In recent times, we have witnessed the dirty evil work or attempts of many Long Wolves in America. The former U.S. President is said to have incited a Long Wolves strategy. The question is, what are local, state, and federal law enforcement offices going to do about it? The new sickness is called “Swatting” which are false emergency calls.
Below are sever examples of crimes committed by “Long Wolves” in America:
The 2023 Shooting in Buffalo, New York, where an 18-year-old white male racist opened fire with a rifle at a supermarket, killing 10 people and injuring three others. This incident was described as a “hate crime and racially motivated violent extremism” by officials. The suspect was later charged with murder, domestic terrorism, hate crimes, and other charges.
On June 17, 2015, a white supremacist named Dylann Roof opened fire at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, killing nine people and injuring one other. The victims were all African Americans and the attack was motivated by racial hatred Roof was later convicted of murder and other charges, and was sentenced to death. The shooting was widely condemned by politicians and civil rights leaders and sparked a national conversation about race relations in the United States.
Ted Kaczynski (also known as the “Unabomber”) engaged in a serial bombing campaign that lasted from 1978 to 1996. He committed 16 bombing attacks that killed a total of three people and injured 231.
Michael Frederick Griffin, an anti-abortion extremist, shot and killed a physician, David Gunn, during a protest outside an abortion clinic in 1993.
Jonathan Preston Haynes, a self-declared neo-Nazi, shot and killed a Chicago-area plastic surgeon in 1993.
John C. Salvi III, an anti-abortion extremist, embarked upon a shooting spree at two abortion clinics in the Boston area in 1994, killing two and wounding five others.
Larry Wayne Shoemake, a white racist, opened fire at a shopping center in a largely African American neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi in 1996, killing one person and wounding 10 more.
The first thing law enforcement must do is to create more defined mechanisms that can identify the maniacs that are lurking in the shadows making overt threats and carrying out wicked verbal and physical crimes and acts of violence against innocent Americans.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has some of the best intelligent agents in the world in the world. The boldness of these bad actors will and should be their downfalls. This is the time for “All Democracy Loving Americans to exercise strategies of Saying Something When They See Something”!
Here are three examples of (DOJ) initiatives to prevent and address domestic violence include in America:
The National Plan to End Gender-Based Violence: This plan outlines strategies for action to prevent and address sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and other forms of gender-based violence.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA): This act provides funding for programs that aim to reduce and address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking by strengthening services to victims and holding offenders accountable.
Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN): This initiative aims to reduce violent crime by bringing together federal, state, and local law enforcement officials to identify and target the most violent offenders in the most violent neighborhoods.
The Honorable John McCain was an honest and moral Republican. I ask members of the Republican Party, where are the John McCain Republicans? Please, name just one in the present-day Republican leader in Congress. My politics, in many instances, were very different from the honorable John McCain; however, I respected him as an outstanding human being and wish there were others of his KIND!
