One on is going on when this continued targeting.
All of lower enforcement's officials the FBI former FBI -- -- bill -- Is with us today bill good to see it could be if not this it's I mean -- we just see we just focusing -- this -- or does this appear to be an act.
-- -- Trent your job and very interesting is that as much as for the rest the country.
Finally crimes have been down over the past several years effect in the past decade have been trending downward.
Unfortunately for people in law enforcement and we include prosecutors and judges and police officers and others in that category.
It is increased effect from 2000 attempted to that's eleven.
The assault rate and the death rate.
Of law enforcement officers went up 75%.
That's going to the FBI's uniform crime report.
Compared to 20092008.
It was a 50%.
So if we look at just law enforcement has a total.
Is that this much more risky profession to be in today than had been ten years ago and I don't know the Aden and the Colorado case.
We hear that that we we know that they arrested one -- alleged white supremacist.
And have now apparently arrested a second.
Man with ties to white supremacy of prison based white supremacist gang.
-- is how significant is that how widespread.
Is that kind of -- Activity in office yet -- also very interesting is that these groups which as you know -- and as you've heard inside prisons can gather together and they can become this brotherhood -- have several names you know at the -- brotherhood there the separate white supremacist groups.
That are in prison among many other types of of gangs and they coalesce in prisons because it gives them protection and identity.
They want to get out.
The question is are -- gonna carry out those acts that maybe they were discussing inside percent.
In the public side -- biggest focus against this people who might be involved in a criminal activities to this point.
Investigated so far and this includes -- both federal as well as state investigators have gone into the prisons and talk to people who -- In the founders of some of these organizations don't believe at this point that this a direct connection that there was some type -- a proclamation of war against prosecutors went out there.
It's not -- say that maybe some.
Errant person or persons out there decided that this is how they want to seek revenge but at this point.
-- they don't have a connection with -- -- these groups directly.
Towards targeting -- either Colorado or Texas or in Joseph I've highest rate case.
But it is on the Nokia but they're looking at both ends -- the visuals as well outside the prison walls but we we don't we get to myopic when we investigate these seems to think that.
Oh it just must -- then we have to give a much sort of view and that's what state local and federal authorities are doing now they're taking a broader view.
But it's certainly scary time I think people who are out there -- -- -- we're doing everything it -- to keep us safe.
We need viewers and we can't keep themselves and it'll do what about this is there any suggestion yet.
Of a link between the the murder of the prisons chief in Colorado.
And the the murders of the prosecutor and his wife in Texas because that one of the one of the suspects in the Colorado case.
Data was ultimately arrested in Texas is that did is that as far as we know just coincidence.
-- that's as far as law enforcement officials are saying at this point it seems to be some coincidences are investigating obviously any connections communications these people had.
But at this point this does nothing definite there's no connection there which which makes it even though a little bit more scarier because you have now.
Who are these people -- this person who's who's out there committing these crimes.
And now we have this.
Case with -- -- hi -- in Arizona.
And is this connected horses maybe -- inspired incident in effect job you want to concerns I always have when you see these cases going out against.
Judges prosecutors -- law enforcement officials is that does it instigate others if they see that it's not closed if it's not.
If they don't -- the person quickly.
-- -- others in saying all this might be a good way to meet you kind of copycat and kind of build on this this platform -- so the longer it goes out the more concern I have that others could be in jeopardy.
Right and that we had the year we had the guy adding California.
Lou who killed a couple of police officers and was eventually -- gunned down in that in that huge conflagration.
It now or go burned himself to death -- not quite sure which I think in adding California we had I think it was a sheriff shot dead and in West Virginia the other.
And we had -- and yes they don't know whether we had the firemen and right town hall has got to gossage I would consider them kind of public safety of young people they -- not -- of the uniform crime reports definition but I consider them right to be out so how terrifying time is this for anybody involved in Oracle's well I think it's -- said these statistics indicate -- increasingly.
More of aid of a dangerous time for people -- more fortunate.
It's that I I believe that people may not see the punishments.
That they received for their crimes may be.
Leo and -- a deterrent when I think maybe they see more fortunate and other officials see the crimes not being the -- prosecuted or.
Pushed fully -- -- in some ways -- people that latitude.
Or with continuing to see Johnson you know an aberrant behavior because our society people more.
-- to violent crimes and when they come out of prison and again we don't know whether the law these cases connected even to prisons.
But when people either imprison -- people out there see violent behavior they copy yet they do things they've read on the Internet they build perhaps devices they sent to Joseph.
I -- down in Arizona and others so it is a much more dangerous time had been in the past decade for people -- more fortunate.
