Interview with local FBI about Hammerfest

Audio interview from Friday October 5th with local office of FBI about Hammerfest, and about the FBI's double standards.
The Hammerskin Nation, a neo-Nazi skinhead organization, aims to attract hundreds of hardcore racists to the group's twentieth-anniversary celebration, to be held from today until Sunday somewhere in the greater Portland area. The group has not publicized the location of the event.

The Hammerskins, began life in 1987 as the Confederate Hammerskins. The group was founded in Dallas, TX gang specializing in violence against Jewish people and people of color, sexual minorities, as well as activists.

The Hammerskin Nation--a masthead for Hammerskin racist skinhead crews--has since gone national, and later international, with their bigoted agenda.

The Hammerskin Nation event in Oregon was planned in conjunction with Volksfront, a Portland-led white supremacist group with links to Kenneth Mieske and Kyle Brewster, two of the killers of Ethiopian immigrant Mulugeta Seraw in a 1988 racially charged crime.

I spoke today with Mike Sweeney, with the Portland office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, about the Hammerskin nation:

Don't Talk to Them 20.Oct.2007 20:28

:-O

I'm not sure if it would be worse to talk to a skinhead, or an FBI agent.... But I think the FBI agent has more power to hurt more people, and can legally get away with it easier.
