White Supremacist Gang Threatens Texas Cops

WOAI.com : Gang Threatens Texas Cops

Excerpt ..
Police throughout Texas are on alert after the FBI Anti Terrorism Division issued a bulletin warning that members of the white supremacist Aryan Brotherhood of Texas prison gang may try to enhance their reputation within the gang by murdering Texas police officers.

San Antonio Police Chief Albert Ortiz tells 1200 WOAI news his officers are trained to deal with threats like this.

"Those kind of reports like this one on the Aryan Brotherhood, we should take note, but certainly we're already prepared for that," he said.

Former FBI special agent and terrorism expert Buck Revell says the bulletin points out what it a constant danger for law enforcement.

"The general public seems to believe that all the terrorists are associated with Osama Bin Laden and the Al-Queda," he said. "That is simply not true."

The bulletin takes on added urgency as Chicago police investigate a possible white supremacist connection to the murders this week of the husband and mother of a federal judge in Chicago.

The bulletin warns local police to 'approach Aryan Brotherhood of Texas members very carefully.'

"Although this information is good, the basic training we give our officers teaches them that they should treat everybody as if it were a confrontation," Ortiz said.

The bulletin said the threat is linked to an 'internal struggle within the organization.' It gives no specifics, and there are no reports of any Texas cops being confronted or harmed by ABT members.
