Hal Turner

Name Occupation Possible influence Speculation / circumstantial evidence
Hal Turner White supremacist (retired) FBI
  • Hal Turner spent years as a notorious racist. News programs repeatedly granted him air-time to make vile comments against non-white people.
  • The Southern Poverty Law Center confirmed (through supposedly hacked emails) that Hal did indeed work with law enforcement, presumably to track violent racists.
  • Hal recklessly identified himself with the Hudson County Republican Party, a political group with no ties to the radicals Hal would have been tracking.
  • Hal's "arrest" (retirement) occurred on June 3, 2009 - three days after the murder of late-term abortion doctor George Tiller. It's possible that Hal's incendiary radio show had not only failed to detect the violence it aimed to prevent, but that his program had become a liability for inspiring such acts and was quickly ended.

Hal Turner should apologize for having terrified many thousands of minority children who saw his rants on television, and to the millions of people from all backgrounds he deeply disturbed with his act. The agency Hal represented should also be investigated for having interfered with New Jersey elections in 2000.
