Today, at a time when much of law enforcement’s focus has shifted from domestic to foreign terrorism, a network of extremism is again spreading throughout the land. “The wall between extremism and mainstream has really come down significantly,” said Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University-San Bernardino.
Fred Masters of Americus, Kan., is dedicated to introducing children and adults to the thrill of spring turkey hunting. He helped a 9-year-old try a few shots at the recent Beau Arndt Memorial Youth Turkey Hunt.
