I don't think Tim McVeigh was a known member of a White Supremist hate group, but it's a matter of record that he was seen at a few rally's organized by White Supremist groups. No doubt McVeigh was heavily influenced by them. He told his two Army buddies that helped him gather supplies to make his bomb (that killed 168 including children at the bomb and maimed more than 100 in the Oklahoma Federal Bldg.) he was going to do more than just talk.Oklahoma Federal Bldg.) There's plenty of hate crimes by these groups that go unpunished. Like the recent wave of Jewish Cemetery destruction, and beatings of gays by small gangs of thugs. I'd say these are nasty hate crimes.
Excessive use of force by the police is common. Not only in the black community, but in all poor neighborhoods in big cities. The officer that murdered Walter Scott plead guilty to the use of excessive force, but not to murder. Shooting someone in the back that results in their death is murder. If Scott's murder wasn't caught by camera, the officer would have lied like a dog and never spent a day in jail, much less admit to anything.
It's wrong to pretend only black hate groups are the cause of today's violence, when they maybe wouldn't even exist if the law enforcement hadn't been brutally abusing their powers for decades in these communities, and getting away with it.
