ABSTRACT

Current Trends in Organized Hate Groups and Their Impact on the United States Army   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the thesis abstract: "The hate-motivated murders of Michael James and Jackie Burden in Fayetteville, North Carolina, by three Fort Bragg soldiers resulted in an unprecedented self-examination by direction of the Secretary of the Army on the extent of extremism in the Army. In the four years since 1995 there were significant changes in the hate movement that will impact on the Army in the future as it struggles to deal with manifestations of extremist behavior. This study examines ramifications of soldiers that participate in hate groups, considers several significant hate group trends, and looks at the Army response to soldiers who do not internalize Army values. Except for some notable measures taken at the installation level after well-publicized events the long-term Army response lags behind measures taken at the federal and state levels."
