Kaufman, Texas (CNN) -- Fears that a white supremacist gang or someone else is targeting Texas law enforcement officials spread Monday to Houston, where the chief prosecutor went under 24-hour protection in the wake of the weekend shooting death of his counterpart in a suburban Dallas county.​
Kaufman County -- where District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, died Saturday -- and Harris County were among numerous Texas and federal jurisdictions that participated in a task force targeting the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas in 2012.​
The investigation resulted in an indictment that a federal prosecutor called a "devastating blow" to an organization investigators say is known to use threats and violence against its enemies.​
The McLellands were found shot to death in their house.​
McLelland's death was the second killing of a Kaufman prosecutor since January 31, when Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse died in a shooting. At the time, McLelland made a promise to the killer to "pull you out of whatever hole you're in."​
While authorities have not said if they have established a link between the deaths of Hasse and McLelland, or the involvement of white supremacists, Texas law enforcement agencies did warn shortly after the November 2012 indictment that there was "credible information" that members of the Aryan Brotherhood were planning to retaliate" for the indictment.​
'On heightened alert'
In Harris County, which includes Houston, Sheriff Adrian Garcia put District Attorney Mike Anderson and his family under 24-hour security in the wake of McLelland's death, said Sara Marie Kinney, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office.​
Uniformed officers have also been placed outside Anderson's office, she said.​
In Kaufman County, the district's attorney's office will remain closed Monday, but the courthouse will reopen under heavy security. Judges and others are also following law enforcement advice on personal security, county Judge Bruce Wood said.​
"We are all on heightened alert. There's no question about that," Wood said on CNN's "Starting Point" on Monday, a few hours before the county courthouse was scheduled to reopen.​
Investigators at the McLellands' home recovered several shell casings from a .223-caliber rifle, a law enforcement source said Sunday.​
Authorities from numerous law enforcement agencies, including the Texas Rangers and the FBI, are investigating the deaths.​
While authorities have not offered a motive, speculation quickly fell on white supremacists, whom McLelland had said could be involved in Hasse's death. He died after being gunned down in broad daylight outside the county courthouse. The killing remains unsolved.​

Well, this is one example of the KKK and like white supremacist groups being watched by police and federal agencies.

According to present laws, this MIGHT fall under "domestic terrorism" because the men killed are government employees.

Allegedly, this group is suspected of "revenge killings" against these white criminal justice officials.

If these men had been Black but NOT government officials, this would be classified/prosecuted as a "hate crime" if this group did it.

....Section 802 of the USA PATRIOT Act (Pub. L. No. 107-52) expanded the definition of terrorism to cover ""domestic,"" as opposed to international, terrorism. A person engages in domestic terrorism if they do an act ""dangerous to human life"" that is a violation of the criminal laws of a state or the United States, if the act appears to be intended to: (i) intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination or kidnapping. Additionally, the acts have to occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States and if they do not, may be regarded as international terrorism.

Section 802 does not create a new crime of domestic terrorism. However, it does expand the type of conduct that the government can investigate when it is investigating ""terrorism."" The USA PATRIOT Act expanded governmental powers to investigate terrorism, and some of these powers are applicable to domestic terrorism.

If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
