Police and social workers using gov’t questionnaire to see if you & your family could be terrorists


Are you, your family or your community at risk of turning to violent extremism? That’s the premise behind a rating system devised by the National Counterterrorism Center, according to a document marked For Official Use Only.

The document–and the rating system–is part of a wider strategy for Countering Violent Extremism, which calls for local community and religious leaders to work together with law enforcement and other government agencies. The White House has made this approach a centerpiece of its response to terrorist attacks around the world and in the wake of the Paris attacks, announced plans to host an international summit on Countering Violent Extremism on February 18th.   

The rating system, part of a 36-page document dated May 2014 and titled “Countering Violent Extremism: A Guide for Practitioners and Analysts,” suggests that police, social workers and educators rate individuals on a scale of one to five in categories such as: “Expressions of Hopelessness, Futility,” “Talk of Harming Self or Others,” and “Connection to Group Identity (Race, Nationality, Religion, Ethnicity).” The ranking system is supposed to alert government officials to individuals at risk of turning to radical violence, and to families or communities at risk of incubating extremist ideologies.

Families are judged on factors such as “Awareness of Each Other’s Activities,” as well as levels of “Parent-Child Bonding,” and communities are rated by access to health care and social services, in addition to “presence of ideologues or recruiters” as potential risk factors.

A low score in any of these categories would indicate a high risk of “susceptibility to engage in violent extremism,” according to the document. It encourages users of the guide to plot the scores on a graph to determine what “interventions” could halt the process of radicalization before it happens.

“The idea that the federal government would encourage local police, teachers, medical and social service employees to rate the communities, individuals and families they serve for their potential to become terrorists is abhorrent on its face,” said Mike German, a former FBI agent who is now with the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. German called the criteria used for the ratings “subjective and specious.”

Arun Kundnani, a professor at New York University said  “There’s no evidence to support the idea that terrorism can be substantively correlated with such factors to do with family, identity, and emotional well-being.”

DHS/Police community outreach programs are being used to spy on innocent kids & families.

A grant proposal from the St. Paul Police Department to the Justice Department, which the Brennan Center obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request to the FBI, lays out a plan in which Somali-speaking advocates would hold outreach meetings with community groups and direct people toward the Police Athletic League and programs at the YWCA. The proposal says that “the team will also identify radicalized individuals, gang members, and violent offenders who refuse to cooperate with our efforts.”

“It’s startling how explicit it was – ‘You don’t want to join the Police Athletic League? You sound like you might join al-Shabab!’” said Michael Price, an attorney with the Brennan Center.

One thought on “Police and social workers using gov’t questionnaire to see if you & your family could be terrorists

  1. Reminiscent of the hitler youth groups …….
    They encouraged all children to participate.
    They made it fun and inviting with activities that
    any normal kid would want to take part in.
    And shamed if they didn’t.
    As they engaged with the fun, they were indoctrinated into
    socialism and hitler worship.
    We’ve seen this here, at the beginning of the “boy’s” reign
    where they had kids singing praises to their saviour.
    They also sought to have camps for all ages.
    And neighborhoods involved to keep up with who was and
    who wasn’t a good party member. Remember the kids lined
    up in fatigues chanting their praises and loyalties to the “boy” ?
    Most of the mindless “heads full of mush” at the college levels
    are a lost cause for our Republic.
    They’re nothing more than human “drones” controlled by the machine.
    Our enemies have always sought the younger generations,
    as they’re easier to indoctrinate. This latest program is just
    another attempt at the previously mentioned program.
    The end results …a police state of snitches and rats.
    I agree with what was written in the book, The Gulag Archepeligo”
    where the writer, ( I can’t spell his name either), be cried that the
    public didn’t meet the enforcers in the alleys and hallways.
    Beating them down with anything they could use. In hopes of
    killing enough of them to bring the death machine to a halt.
    We don’t have to worry about that here ……
    for when these creatures make their moves, they’ll instantly
    become a walking target, never to be removed from the list.
    Our Republic needs to sweep clean the thugs, socialists, and
    marxist sympathizers that have attempted to ruin our Republic.
    And it’s coming ….I can here the rustling of the broom even now.
