Crazy Delphi gets Crazier all the TIME!

This is a vey important case for many reasons.  One of those reasons is that there is so obviously a conspiracy to cover up the truth.  It is hard to tell who all is lying, They all seem shady.  There are factors about which we have no information.

That is the reason it is not being resolved.  Those who know things are not telling.  Either because they are too scared or they have a horse in the race.

I hope you get something out of my posts on this topic.  For some reason, I am lead to keep looking.

Heathen/Pagan Beliefs, Practices, Rituals and Entities



I have from the beginning suspected that these girls were sacrificed in order to move the project forward.  What ever the reason the project to revitalize this area and connect the historic rail locations in Indiana is so important, we can’t imagine.  We don’t have enough information.  But, clearly the evidence in this case suggests the connection.  I am obviously not the only person who recognizes this and the following video puts a lot of the pieces together.  

End of Update

Every new article or video I look at brings out different and new information.  The stories change a lot in this case.  According to the article source of the following Kelsi states that the girls were going to the bridge to participate in SnapChats.  And, she and Libby had visited the area just two weeks earlier.

The two girls were headed to take Snapchats on the bridge, which looms several stories above the rushing Deer Creek, when they encountered a man.

The bridge is under construction now, blocked off by a chain-link fence, so we walk an adjacent trail down a steep hill, one Kelsi last walked on with Libby two weeks before her death. SOURCE



I looked into Geocaching, it sounded quite complicated.  I located a simple basic definition.


From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Geocaching is an outdoor sport activity based on GPS (Global Positioning System). Players use a receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide or look for containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”.


One of the main ideas of geocaching is putting caches in places that are interesting, but not often visited by tourists. In the listing of the cache, information about the places is given.

After 19 years of activity there are over 3,000,000 active geocaches. There are over 5 million geocachers worldwide.[1]


Geocaching was invented shortly after the removal of artificial error from GPS on May 2, 2000. Accuracy of the GPS before this date was about 100m, after this date is less than 3m. Improved accuracy allowed geocachers to specify where caches are located.

The first cache was placed on May 3, 2000, by Dave Ulmer in Beavercreek. It was found by Mike Teague of Vancouver on May 6, 2000. The original name of the game is GPS Stash Hunt, but it was changed on May 30, 2000 after the discussion of several players to Geocaching. [2]


The cache is usually in a waterproof plastic container with a logbook where geocachers write their registered nickname and date they find it. Larger containers usually contain items for trading like plastic toyshockey cards or special trackable items called Travel Bugs or Geocoins. Trackable items are logged on the website and moved from cache to cache.

The coordinates of a hidden cache with the rating of the difficulty and terrain and information about size are placed by owner at the official website After checking by a reviewer, they are published and available for other gteocachers.

Types of caches

Traditional cache: The basic cache type, hidden on the place defined by coordinates in header of listing.

Multi cache: The geocacher usually has to go over the stages, find some information at every stage (such as number on information board etc.) and at the finish calculate the coordinates of the final cache.

Mystery/puzzle cache (also called “Unknown cache”): The coordinates of the final cache are usually hidden in some cipher, image or text and the geocacher has to discover it.

Letterbox hybrid cache: A combination of geocaching and letterboxing in the same container. Instead of a classic cache there is a stamp, which the finder can print to his or her diary.

Webcam cache: It is not a typical cache where the geocacher has to find a hidden box with a logbook. Instead, he has to find a webcam on the published coordinates and take a photo of himself.

Virtual cache: Similar to webcam cache, there is no hidden box at the coordinates. The geocacher only has to find out information such as the name on a monument and send it to the owner of the cache.

Earth cache: Very similar to virtual cache, but in a geographically interesting place. The geocacher has to find out answers for the questions in a listing, take a photo here, and send it to the owner of the cache.

Event cache: Meeting organized and attended by geocachers. There is also special type of event – CITO (Cache in, trash out), where geocachers have to clean up an area. An event attended by more than 500 people is called a Mega-event, and an event attended by more than 5000 people is called a Giga-event

Ya call me a skeptic, but none of that sounds like a great idea to me.  First of all, I do not trust GPS and do not use it.  I have seen so many people who are totally dependent on that thing.  I used to use it when I was selling insurance and it nearly got me killed, more than once.  I prefer to always use a map and plan several alternative routes ahead of time, in case I need to change my plan midstream.  

This geocache thing reminds me a lot of the Pokemon Go craze.  A lot of people got hurt/injured.  People get so caught up in the search, they do not take necessary precautions.  It would be so easy for predators to use this geocache stuff to entrap people.  I don’t like the idea of young people communicating online with strangers.  The world is full of crazy people.




Why is there absolutely no information to be found about Derrick German??  Who is he and what is his history and who are his connections?  What does he do for a living?  Why do they live with his parents and why are his parents the ones doing all the talking???  This is a weird family.  Why was their Mother not part of the whole investigation?  Where did Kelsi get the money to attend Purdue?  We know absolutely nothing about the family members and the family dynamic.  We don’t know anything about their relationship with the local Norse adherents or with the local criminal element.  

There has been evidence that Derrick German is a snitch, apparently he has had a history with drugs and has been associated with very shady people.  There have been statements made to the effect that he has made some very powerful people very angry, that they have been “watching him” and that he and his family had been threatened.  Who was watching him??  How deep was he in with criminals and what would he do to get out from under the threat?  What is he hiding? Or should I say WHY is he hiding?

Some observers have allegedly griped that Derrick German, Libby and Kelsi’s dad, should be more forthcoming. Addressing those critics, Kelsi said, “They will change our words. They twist our words all the time, and he doesn’t want you guys to do that, so he just chooses not to speak…. To go along with that, there is a rumor that Libby actually called him at 2:30 to ask him to pick them up, which our phone records show that’s not true.”    Source

SOMEONE had to get the information out that Libby and Abby would be on the bridge.  This was not a random selection.  These girls were targeted, specifically.  Who was the informant?  Someone set them up.  That is my opinion.  

It is hard to believe, but the one who set them up may actually be her own sister.  That seems inconceivable, but stranger things have happened.  Let’s take just a brief look at Kelsi.  I don’t have the patience to go over all the videos about her, but you might want to check them out.  She has been speaking out, seemingly as much as Mike Patty.



Kelsi – Baby Name Meaning, Origin and Popularity – The Bump

Kelsi is a feminine name of British origin that means “victorious ship.” It derives from the Old English name Cēolsige and is often seen today spelled as Kelsey or Kelsy. This name has nautical and spirited connotations, conjuring images of a successful, adventurous child with a deep connection to nature. May 16, 2023


Kelsi German

“I found my passion with helping people in the true crime community,” Kelsi German says

For as long as she could remember, Kelsi German wanted to be a news reporter. In fact, during her freshman year at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., German took nothing but journalism classes.

“My entire life, that’s all I wanted to do,” German explains.

But then, in early 2017, everything changed.

After losing her sister and best friend, Kelsi German shifted her academic focus to psychology and criminal justice in order to help people like herself — the loved ones left behind after the murders.

“I had this switch that went off in my head and I found my passion with helping people in the true crime community, especially,” German, 21, tells PEOPLE. “And then I found a career path that would get me to the spot I wanted to be in, where I could help these people for the rest of my life. And now, that’s what I’m planning on doing.”

The recently-engaged German is now at Purdue University, studying forensic science — but she isn’t planning on using her education to bring her sister’s killer to justice.

“If I learn something in my classes, it might be something new that the detectives haven’t thought about,” German reasons. “I use it to my advantage, and I’ll be like, ‘Hey, what about this?’ or ‘Have you guys tried that?’ It’s a nice way for me to be able to help them in a different way and also meet all of these people going into the forensic science field who are so interested in these kinds of cases that are going unsolved right now.”  Source

Since 2017, Kelsi German has become an advocate for her sister and other family members fighting for answers. She is a recent graduate of Purdue University with degrees in forensic science and psychology.  Source

She’s lived with her grandparents since she and Libby moved there 13 years ago because their parents had dissociated from them, she said. Kelsi’s mother lives in Kentucky, and the two argue more than ever before, Kelsi says. Her father has been in and out of prison, though he now lives at her grandparents’ home  Source

So, she was attending college at Ball University, studying journalism.

Since the murders, she has switched to PURDUE… one of the biggest Universities in the nation.  She graduated with a degree in criminal justice and psychology.  
Rather than pursue a traditional career in forensic science, which involves collecting and analyzing physical evidence from a crime scene, Kelsi majors in psychology to focus on the individual motivations of criminals. She minors in both forensic science and law and society, which offers an alternative to the blood spatter and bullet holes that are prominent in crime labs.

Purdue University Alum, Advocate

Lafayette, Indiana Metropolitan Area

I have spent the last 5 years advocating for my sister as well as other crime victims through social media. My sister and her best friend were murdered February 13, 2017, in Delphi Indiana. Through my personal advocacy, I learned valuable communication and public speaking skills that have allowed me to better help others through difficult times in their lives. I have also gained valuable experience in communicating with media and law enforcement. Over the past 5 years I have spent navigating my sister’s case, I have come to empathize with these situations and can offer an unique understanding that most cannot.

I have a B.S.s from Purdue University in Psychology with minors in forensic science and law & society.

Seems that PURDUE is heavily investing in DELPHI.  And, I am sorry but this looks a lot like just another part of the project that had been struggling to get funded for so many years…until the girls were sacrificed.

Foraging Fairytales; The Legendary Birch Tree

By Duncan Tinkler on 12/05/2021

The changing of the seasons is the most magical time of the year.  As we gently say goodbye to Spring and hello to Summer which starts on the 21st of June we notice little signs that the ‘Hunger Gap’ will soon be over, giving way to the ‘Time of Plenty’.

We’ve filled our foraging basket with wild garlic, young nettle leaves and plenty of blossoms and dandelions.  We’ve started to notice new seasonal British produce – spring onions, jerusalem artichokes and asparagus at the greengrocers.  A true sign that the ‘Time of Plenty’ is on it’s way.

Nature is giving us clues too.  Silver Birch is one of the earliest of the deciduous trees to grow leaves in the springtime.  It’s no coincidence that it’s steeped in folklore pertaining to new beginnings, renewal and purification. It’s cemented in myth and legend throughout history.

In Norse mythology Birch was sacred to Frigge and Freya, Goddesses of Motherhood, Love and Fertility.

The ancient Greco-Romans paired the Birch tree with Aphrodite/Venus, the Goddess of Love.

The Anglo-Saxons with Eoistre (aka Easter), the Goddess of Springtime and renewal.

The Celtic celebration of Beltane, or Mayday, would be celebrated with fires of Birchwood, and a Birch tree making a living May Pole to celebrate new beginnings.

In the Highlands of Scotland it was believed that if you herded a barren cow with a staff made of birch, she would become fertile harking back to their Nordic roots.

Birch’s importance continues throughout the seasons.  The Gealic New Year, or Samhain, marking the end of harvest and the start of the ‘dark-half’ of the year survives today as Halloween.  Not only were Birch bonfires lit, but bundles of birch twigs were used in a ceremony called Beating the Bounds.

The twigs were tied together, often around a long pole used as a handle and folk would sweep away bad luck and evil spirits.  With the advent of Christianity, the image of a birch broom was flipped and became the very symbol of Devil Worship and Witchcraftthe Witches Broom.

Not only was Birch full of magic, it was a very useful wood too.  Being tough, heavy and straight grained, it was a fantastic general building material.  Integral in weaving, making things like bobbins, spools and reels.

It was so important that many place names still pay homage to the magnificent tree. Birkenhead, Birkhall and Berkhamsted all derive their names from Birch.

In the highlands of Scotland, places like the Glen of Beithe also carry the moniker.  The wood would be used as a fuel in the Whisky distillation process and to smoke ham and fish.

The bark was used in the tanning industry, to make rope and even as a makeshift candle.  The Sap can be tapped and brewed into a wine which is said to help with kidney stones, rheumatism and gout, or rubbed on the skin to relieve rashes.

The leaves have antiseptic and diuretic properties, meaning that they were used to treat urinary tract infections.  It is also said that they are good for digestion and immunity, they are high in vitamin C, so there may be some truth to this.

Our ancestors would have made ‘tea’ of the young leaves and bark. Birch leaves start to appear in March.

Limestonesedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate (CaCO3), usually in the form of calcite or aragonite. It may contain considerable amounts of magnesium carbonate (dolomite) as well; minor constituents also commonly present include clay, iron carbonate, feldspar, pyrite, and quartz.

Most limestones have a granular texture. Their constituent grains range in size from 0.001 mm (0.00004 inch) to visible particles. In many cases, the grains are microscopic fragments of fossil animal shells.

Limestone has two origins: (1) biogenic precipitation from seawater, the primary agents being lime-secreting organisms and foraminifera; and (2) mechanical transport and deposition of preexisting limestones, forming clastic deposits. Travertine, tufa, calichechalk, sparite, and micrite are all varieties of limestone.

Digging out history

Hoping to save a piece of history, the Wabash and Erie Canal Association is working to move a lime kiln that was once an important part of the Delphi economy.

Dan McCain, president of the Wabash and Erie Canal Association, had ancestors on both sides of his family involved in the limestone industry. The limestone kiln was once used by his McCain ancestors, he said, and the canal association has plans to rebuild it in a location where his other ancestors operated the Harley and Hubbard kilns.

The limestone kiln was originally located in northern Delphi at Milkhouse and Carrollton roads, McCain said.

The limestone quarry where the kiln was located gave the association a window of opportunity to move the kiln, according to McCain, before the bulldozers rolled in. The group was allotted time from Sept. 1 to Dec. 1 to dismantle the kiln.

“The weather was good,” McCain said. “A contractor helped us truck it into Delphi.”

The eight-day process involved removing soil from around the opening on the top and from around the kiln arch.

“The one we took apart was not so tall,” McCain explained. “It lost the stack. Someone took the stack, which was iron, and sold it. We will have to replicate and interpret it.”

McCain said the new stack would not be as tall as the original one had been. He said the new stack would give visitors an idea of what the lime kiln looked like and how it worked.

Work has stopped for the winter, but McCain said volunteers would begin assembling the kiln in April. He said the kiln would take longer to reassemble than it did to dismantle. The kiln will be restored at the Canal Park Annex, where the new canal boat warehouse will be built.

The history of limestone kilns is rich throughout the area, McCain said.

“Delphi had higher quality because of the better chemistry of the rock,” he added.

Delphi’s limestone contained magnesium carbonate, which made the local product desired by professional craftsmen, according to McCain.

The limestone kilns first existed in the Delphi area in 1857, when McCain’s great-great-great-grandfather, David Rogers Harley, started a kiln operation with his brother-in-law, Erastus Hubbard. When others saw how successful the business was, more kilns began to arrive.

The kilns existed to reduce raw rock into powder, McCain said. It was a process to create mortar, whitening products and plaster.

Workers would place eight- to 10-pound pieces of limestone in the top of the kiln, either with the use of a ramp or a wench and a bucket, McCain said. The rock would travel down as it was heated and finally reach the metal flume. Once the limestone made it to the metal flume, McCain said, it had turned into powder and workers would shift through the powder.

“You basically melt the limestone,” he said. “It’s a process of getting the moisture out. With that whole process, you couldn’t quit in the middle. You had to keep it running 24 hours a day.”

Shifts of men kept the fires going while other workers gathered wood for fuel.

Initially the product was shipped by canal and later by railroad.

McCain said the kilns were of large stature. The one the association is rebuilding consists of a 20-foot square base and is 10 to 12 feet tall. Originally, he said, the metal chimney once was 30 feet tall.

“They were massive,” he said.

At the peak of operations in 1871, a total of 22 kilns were in operation, according to McCain. He said his great-great-grandfather, Daniel McCain, was the first general manager for the Delphi Lime Co. During this time, McCain said, the kilns in Delphi alone produced a half a million bushels of product a year.

“A lot of people don’t realize there were so many lime kilns,” McCain said.

The limestone was shipped on the canal until 1874 when the railroad came along. McCain said his great-great-grandfather had to make connections with the Wabash and Monon railroads. Eventually the Monon transferred the limestone product to Chicago, where it was used to help rebuild many of the structures burned by the Great Chicago Fire.

The lime operations had disappeared by 1917, shortly after McCain’s great-grandfather, Charlie Harley, passed away. McCain said other technologies came along in other parts of the United States and workers began to use “rotary kilns.” The new kilns offered better technology, but were expensive to build.

McCain said most of the kilns in Delphi had been farmed over or simply disappeared into the earth over time. He said he felt fortunate to find a kiln in such good shape.

The history of Delphi’s lime kilns means something special to McCain. He said he enjoyed making a daily hike on the trails, which take him past the location of the lime kiln operations.

“It is a source of pride of living there and to know they were heavily involved with the site,” he said. “I enjoy helping others understand. It is a lost art. There aren’t many sites you can see any more.”

Although most of the bedrock of Carroll County is Devonian, steeply dipping Silurian beds crop out in and about the city of Delphi. Before the Silurian quaquaversal structures of northern Indiana were proved to be reefs, dips on the Silurian beds in this area seemed to indicate an anticline or dome.

Geology / Silurian Reefs

Just as you associate coal with rocks of Carboniferous age, many geologists will associate the Silurian with limestone. Much of the limestone was laid down in large reef systems or bioherms in similar environments to the huge coral barrier reefs of today. After the end of the Ordovician sea levels rose – probably due to release of water from the melting ice caps. The shallow water conditions over wide areas in Europe and North America provide ideal conditions for reef development. The other conditions – clear mud-free water and warmth were also largely present.

Limestone is important as a road stone, in the production of steel and as an impermeable rock to form the traps for oil and gas underground reservoirs. Made up primarily of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) but sometimes dolomite [Calcium Magnesium Carbonate (CaMg(CO3)2)], limestone is the bye-product of organisms. In the earliest formations, bacteria and single-celled plants produced the lime by extracting the minerals from sea-water. At the start of the Cambrian System many different groups of animals started depositing their shelly skeletons into rocks. The vast quantities of skeletons then formed lime muds that under heat, pressure and vast periods of time turned into limestone rock.

One of the most famous exposures of Silurian limestone must be at the Niagara Falls. Here the hard limestone rock forms the layer over which the river falls onto the softer underlying rocks.

Reefs form as ‘barriers’ in shallower waters and as isolated ‘pinnacles’ in deeper water. The reefs are formed by a whole collection of different organisms performing different tasks in the reef building process. The principles of the reef building process are the same today as in the Silurian 400 million years ago.

Constructors Build the basic structure of the reef. In the Silurian, stromatoporoids built domes and tabulate corals built domes and chains up to two feet in size.
Binders Form stabilising sheets over loose material. Stromatoporoids, tabulate corals and bryozans performed this function in the Siurian.
Bafflers Slow down the water flow over the reef by forming branching structures over the reef surface. Tabulate and rugose corals can perform this function.
Reef Dwellers The great majorities of organisms (about 90%) make use of the reef structure. Although not building the reef in life, their skeletal remains contribute greatly to the bulk of the reef. Organisms such as sponges, rugose corals, crinoids, brachiopods, cephalopods and bryozoans are in this category.

Brachiopods were very numerous and diverse perhaps accounting for one quarter of reef dwellers. They filtered food from the water and were anchored to the reef or nestled in soft mud.

Trilobites crawled the reefs in search of food on their many feet and using their well developed eyes and antennae to find their way around.

Crinoids resemble underwater ‘tree ferns’ or ‘sea lilies’ opening up scaly, feathery arms to catch microscopic animals in the water. The stems are often preserved as small columnar pieces and can make up a significant proportion of a limestone.

Dolomite is not formed directly, it is original deposited as Calcium Carbonate and afterwards the deposit is then permeated by magnesium rich waters that gradually replace half the calcium with magnesium. Dolomite is harder and heavier than the original rock.


A Silurian reef complex at Delphi, Indiana, consists of two subcircular reefs occupying an area of about 4 sq mi (10.6 sq km). The reef is more than 400 ft (62 m) thick, has a volume of about 0.15 cu mi (0.64 cu km), and effected as much as 75 ft (23 m) of compaction-induced drape in the overlying Middle Devonian strata.Stratigraphically, the complex extends upward from Salamonie (Middle Silurian) into Salina rocks (Upper Silurian). Growth of the complex proceeded through alternating periods of lateral expansion and restriction as reflected in the cross-sectional geometry of at least one of the reefs. These growth characteristics, whether related to sea-level fluctuation and/or salinity changes or to other factors, probably reflect the conditions that led to cyclic deposition of carbonate and evaporite rocks in the Michigan basin during Middle to Late Silurian time.Present dips along reef flanks locally exceed 35°, but structural and stratigraphic analyses suggest that original depositional slopes may have been more gentle, that reef tops were never appreciably more than 200 ft (60 m) above the seafloor (although reef thicknesses of several hundred feet were attained before erosion), and that the central parts of the main reef masses were occupied by relatively rigid and volumetrically little changing structural cores.The southwestern reef of the complex contains several biozones, which were verified in part by systematically collected faunal data and by trend-surface analysis. Biozones include: two central areas of highest organic-framework buildup characterized by corals and stromatoporoids and flanking zones characterized separately by echinodermal and other debris, pentamerid brachiopods, gastropods, and fine debris and chert. The zones are partly repetitive, however, and are related to both reef coalescence and alternating environmental conditions. The zonal distribution is similar to that already proposed for the large Silurian reef at Monon, Indiana, and somewhat resembles that proposed for the reef at Thornton, Illinois. These similarities and the fact of zonation in itself help to support the conclusion that the often debated Silurian buildups in the Great Lakes area satisfy all but the most rigid definitions of ecologic (organic-framework) reefs.

Families want ‘Abby and Libby Field of Dreams’ to help heal the community


The grandparents of Liberty German and the mother of Abigail Williams spoke at a press conference Thursday afternoon at the Dusty Trail Saloon in Kokomo to announce the upcoming “Abby and Libby Field of Dreams Memorial Show” fundraiser, set to take place on Saturday, July 15.

The event will be held at the Dusty Trail Saloon and will feature live concert performances from a pair of rock band acts, a hog roast, a motorcycle ride and a silent auction, with all proceeds going toward turning a dream into a reality with the building of a sports complex, including softball fields, a park area with an entertainment pavilion and a walking trail to honor the lives of Abby Williams and Libby German.

“While we are still focused and assisting law enforcement to bring this case to justice, we are also working on building a memorial,” Mike Patty, grandfather of Liberty German said.

“We want to have a sports complex, with a couple of softball fields and a park with a walking trail as a way to not only honor the memory of Abby and Libby, but also provide a place the community can enjoy,” he said.


“The softball fields will be a place that the rest of the girls from the community who play softball can be proud of and call home,” he added. “We want to make the park complete with a pavilion and some unique artistic musical instrument type stations as a way to give back to the community that has been so good to us.”

As much as Libby loved playing softball, Abby, who was going to play softball for the first time this year at the urging of Libby, enjoyed music and the arts, while both shared a passion for the outdoors, making the park complex a perfect way to honor their memories.

“We wanted to make music and arts a part of this project as well,” Anna Williams, mother of Abigail Williams said. “It’s all the things together that made these girls so very special to us.”

The fundraising event, which will feature live music from the platinum rock band Saving Abel, as well as the regional act XFactor1, is one of several fundraisers being planned to help offset the cost of the ambitious project.

“We did not realize how big of an undertaking this was going to be,” Becky Patty, Liberty German’s grandmother, said. “We wanted to do something to honor the girls, but we were also very naïve in the cost.”

The Pattys, working with the Delphi Recreational Softball Board, estimate that approximately $500,000 will need to be raised, but are determined to get it done with fundraising events, sponsors, donors, possible grants and hard work.

“This is why we’re here, this has become our focus,” Becky Patty added. “We can’t bring those girls back, but we can make sure they are remembered.”

The families hope that groundbreaking can begin as soon as possible, but felt like by next spring is a realistic timeframe with some of the early preliminary work perhaps starting sooner.

Several parcels of land are under consideration for development, but nothing has yet been finalized. The Pattys have also spoken to other communities who have recently built a similar complex.

Delphi City Councilman Dale Seward recently toured the “Field of Dreams” complex in Westfield to get some preliminary ideas of the scope of the project.

“I will help this project in any way that I can,” he said. “There is a wonderful opportunity to not only fulfill a memorial for the girls, but also to have the community come together and make something special for many years to come.”

“It will be a place for our community to start the healing,” Williams added. “I hope that we can have that, that we’ll find peace when we walk through our park and our ball field, and we’ll know the girls are there. They’ll be there.”

Save the date!

A local fundraiser for the “Abby and Libby Field of Dreams” is being planned for Saturday, May 13, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Delphi Community High School football field. Watch next week’s Comet for details about the event which will include food, music, an auction and more.

It should be obvious and certain to anyone following this case that there is a HUGE COVER UP.  ALL parties complicit, I believe including Libby’s family.  Just my opinion.  Too much suspicious behavior and WAY TOO MUCH SECRECY all the way around.
So, is it just corrupt government, is the wicked racist groups that have been in Indiana for a long time, is the NORSE pagans worshipping their violent gods/goddesses, is it the crime society of the area, is it just the ENVIRONMENT of weird magnetism, ley lines, limestone and paleo history that makes people act crazy?  Or is it, in some way GREED that motivates who ever is behind the horrors that were perpetrated on Abby and Libby, and the Flora sisters, and James Chadwell’s victim who thankfully was rescued though not before she suffered nightmarish abuse and torture.?

Hidden in Plain Sight: Racism, White Supremacy, and Far-Right Militancy in Law Enforcement

SUMMARY: The government’s response to known connections of law enforcement officers to violent racist and militant groups has been strikingly insufficient.

PUBLISHED: August 27, 2020


Racial disparities have long pervaded every step of the criminal justice process, from police stops, searches, arrests, shootings and other uses of force to charging decisions, wrongful convictions, and sentences. footnote1_mb8bnsp1 As a result, many have concluded that a structural or institutional bias against people of color, shaped by long-standing racial, economic, and social inequities, infects the criminal justice system. footnote2_l3g2okm2 These systemic inequities can also instill implicit biases — unconscious prejudices that favor in-groups and stigmatize out-groups — among individual law enforcement officials, influencing their day-to-day actions while interacting with the public.

Police reforms, often imposed after incidents of racist misconduct or brutality, have focused on addressing these unconscious manifestations of bias. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), for example, has required implicit bias training as part of consent decrees it imposes to root out discriminatory practices in law enforcement agencies. Such training measures are designed to help law enforcement officers recognize these unconscious biases in order to reduce their influence on police behavior.

These reforms, while well-intentioned, leave unaddressed an especially harmful form of bias, which remains entrenched within law enforcement: explicit racism. Explicit racism in law enforcement takes many forms, from membership or affiliation with violent white supremacist or far-right militant groups, to engaging in racially discriminatory behavior toward the public or law enforcement colleagues, to making racist remarks and sharing them on social media. While it is widely acknowledged that racist officers subsist within police departments around the country, federal, state, and local governments are doing far too little to proactively identify them, report their behavior to prosecutors who might unwittingly rely on their testimony in criminal cases, or protect the diverse communities they are sworn to serve.

Efforts to address systemic and implicit biases in law enforcement are unlikely to be effective in reducing the racial disparities in the criminal justice system as long as explicit racism in law enforcement continues to endure. There is ample evidence to demonstrate that it does.

In 2017, the FBI reported that white supremacists posed a “persistent threat of lethal violence” that has produced more fatalities than any other category of domestic terrorists since 2000footnote3_suxgm283 Alarmingly, internal FBI policy documents have also warned agents assigned to domestic terrorism cases that the white supremacist and anti-government militia groups they investigate often have “active links” to law enforcement officials. footnote4_q14j5hi4

The harms that armed law enforcement officers affiliated with violent white supremacist and anti-government militia groups can inflict on American society could hardly be overstated. Yet despite the FBI’s acknowledgement of the links between law enforcement and these suspected terrorist groups, the Justice Department has no national strategy designed to identify white supremacist police officers or to protect the safety and civil rights of the communities they patrol.

Obviously, only a tiny percentage of law enforcement officials are likely to be active members of white supremacist groups. But one doesn’t need access to secretive intelligence gathered in FBI terrorism investigations to find evidence of overt and explicit racism within law enforcement. Since 2000, law enforcement officials with alleged connections to white supremacist groups or far-right militant activities have been exposed in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and elsewherefootnote5_q3ec2tx5 Research organizations have uncovered hundreds of federal, state, and local law enforcement officials participating in racist, nativist, and sexist social media activity, which demonstrates that overt bias is far too commonfootnote6_64bqzdf6 These officers’ racist activities are often known within their departments, but only result in disciplinary action or termination if they trigger public scandals.

Few law enforcement agencies have policies that specifically prohibit affiliating with white supremacist groups. Instead, these officers typically face discipline, if at all, for more generally defined prohibitions against conduct detrimental to the department or for violations of anti-discrimination regulations or social media policies. Firings often lead to prolonged litigation, with dismissed officers claiming violations of their First Amendment speech and association rights. Most courts have upheld dismissals of police officers who have affiliated with racist or militant groups, following Supreme Court decisions limiting free speech rights for public employees to matters of public concern. footnote7_j2etzpr7 Courts have given law enforcement agencies even greater latitude to restrict speech and association, citing their “heightened need for order, loyalty, morale and harmony.” footnote8_mpridj38

Some officers who have associated with militant groups or engaged in racist behavior have not been fired, however, or have had their dismissals overturned by courts or in arbitration. Such due process is required to ensure integrity and equity in the disciplinary process and protect falsely accused police officers from unjust punishments. Certainly, there will be cases where an officer’s behavior can be corrected with remedial measures short of termination. But leaving officers tainted by racist behavior in a job with immense discretion to take a person’s life and liberty requires a detailed supervision plan to mitigate the potential threats they pose to the communities they police, implemented with sufficient transparency to restore public trust.

Progress in removing explicit racism from law enforcement has clearly been made since the civil rights era, when Ku Klux Klan–affiliated officers were far too common. But, as Georgetown University law professor Vida B. Johnson argues, “The system can never achieve its purported goal of fairness while white supremacists continue to hide within police departments.” footnote9_t9qe0b89 Trust in the police remains low among people of color, who are often victims of police violence and abuse and are disproportionately underserved as victims of crime. footnote10_fpffbl710 The failure of law enforcement to adequately respond to racist violence and hate crimes or properly police white supremacist riots in cities across the United States over the last several years has left many Americans concerned that bias in law enforcement is pervasive. footnote11_9p1k8nt11 This report examines the law enforcement response to racist behavior, white supremacy, and far-right militancy within the ranks and recommends policy solutions to inform a more effective response.

Inadequate Response to Affiliations with White Supremacist and Militant Groups

The FBI’s 2015 Counterterrorism Policy Directive and Policy Guide warns that “domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists, and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers.” footnote1_z0rwse412 This alarming declaration followed a 2006 intelligence assessment, based on FBI investigations and open sources, that warned of “white supremacist infiltration of law enforcement . . . by organized groups and by self-initiated infiltration by law enforcement personnel sympathetic to white supremacist causes.” footnote2_eexppzq13 Active links between law enforcement officials and the subjects of any terrorism investigation should raise alarms within our national security establishment, but the federal government has not responded accordingly.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have identified white supremacists as the most lethal domestic terrorist threat to the United States. footnote3_kzw6gha14 In recent years, white supremacists have executed deadly rampages in Charleston, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and El Paso, Texas. footnote4_pmueq1915 Narrowly thwarted attempts by neo-Nazis to manufacture radiological “dirty” bombs in Maine in 2009 and Florida in 2017 show their dangerous capability and intent to unleash mass destruction. footnote5_x20ufq416 These groups also pose a lethal threat to law enforcement, as evidenced by recent attacks against Federal Protective Service officers and sheriff’s deputies in California by far-right militants intent on starting the “Boogaloo” — a euphemism for a new civil war — which killed two and injured several others. footnote6_onxj2h817

Any law enforcement officers associating with these groups should be treated as a matter of urgent concern. Operating under color of law, such officers put the lives and liberty of people of color, religious minorities, LGBTQ+ people, and anti-racist activists at extreme risk, both through the violence they can mete out directly and by their failure to properly respond when these communities are victimized by other racist violent crime. Biased policing also tears at the fabric of American society by undermining public trust in equal justice and the rule of law.

The FBI’s 2006 assessment, however, takes a narrower view. It claims that “the primary threat” posed by the infiltration or recruitment of police officers into white supremacist or other far-right militant groups “arises from the areas of intelligence collection and exploitation, which can lead to investigative breaches and can jeopardize the safety of law enforcement sources or personnel.” footnote7_2a40bp018 Though the FBI redacted significant passages of the assessment before releasing it to the public, the document does not appear to address any of the potential harms these bigoted officers pose to communities of color they police or to society at large. Rather, it identifies the main problem as a risk to the integrity of FBI investigations and the security of its agents and informants.

In a June 2019 hearing before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-MO) asked Michael McGarrity, the FBI’s assistant director for counterterrorism, whether the bureau remained concerned about white supremacist infiltration of law enforcement since the publication of the 2006 assessment. McGarrity indicated he had not read the 2006 assessment. footnote8_tqmi8ai19

When asked more generally about the issue, McGarrity said he would be “suspect” of white supremacist police officers, but that their ideology was a First Amendment–protected right. The 2006 assessment addresses this concern, however, correctly summarizing Supreme Court precedent on the issue: “Although the First Amendment’s freedom of association provision protects an individual’s right to join white supremacist groups for the purposes of lawful activity, the government can limit the employment opportunities of group members who hold sensitive public sector jobs, including jobs within law enforcement, when their memberships would interfere with their duties.” footnote9_wi106md20

More importantly, the FBI’s 2015 counterterrorism policy, which McGarrity was responsible for implementing, indicates not just that members of law enforcement might hold white supremacist views, but that FBI domestic terrorism investigations have often identified “active links” between the subjects of these investigations and law enforcement officials. Its proposed remedy is stunningly inadequate, however. The guide simply instructs agents to use the “silent hit” feature of the Terrorist Screening Center watchlist so that police officers searching for themselves or their white supremacist associates could not ascertain whether they were under FBI scrutiny.

While it is important to protect the integrity of FBI terrorism investigations and the safety of law enforcement personnel, Congress has also tasked the FBI with protecting the civil rights of American communities often targeted with discriminatory stops, searches, arrests, and brutality at the hands of police officers. The issue in these cases isn’t ideology but law enforcement connections to subjects of active terrorism investigations. It is unlikely that the FBI would be similarly hesitant to act if it received information that U.S. law enforcement officials were actively linked to terrorist groups like al-Qaeda or ISIS, or to criminal organizations like street gangs or the Mafia. Yet many of the white supremacist groups investigated by the FBI have longer and more violent histories than these other organizations. The federal response to known connections of law enforcement officers to white supremacist and far-right militant groups has been strikingly insufficient.
