    White supremacist radio host Hal Turner was an FBI informant

    As hackers claimed a year ago.


    Turns out that Hal Turner is not just your ordinary hate speech jock on the radio:

    And now we find out, for sure, that he was an FBI informant -- out there for years, whipping the crazies up into a frenzy, drawing out the true believers ready to commit violence, then turning them over to the FBI, even though they're seemingly going along with what he was promoting.
    It seems that Hal Turner is not what he seems..... Strike that, yes he seems like a complete douche bag, and that is what he is. But the announcement that Turner is also an FBI informant is hilarious. Here you have all these crazies who see Turner as a God, being turned in after being goaded by Turner to do crazy stuff. LOL.

    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    Re: White supremacist radio host Hal Turner was an FBI informant

    Becoming an informant is an easy task. Generally all you have to do is get caught doing something illegal and your in. In exchange for your information they look the other way about what ever they have on you. For law enforcement it's a win, win, win, situation because you stop committing what ever crime you were doing, they get the next guy, and the informant doesn't have to play by the same rules as say and under cover officer. They do things like entice people to commit crimes that if done by law enforcement would be entrapment. The informant can go along with criminals in the commission of a crime, or do drugs and other things Law enforcement could get in trouble for.
    This all leads me to wonder what they had on him at the outset. Clearly using the inflammatory language he allowed should have got him thrown off the air for FCC violations and then being so stupid that he apparently thought being an informant would protect him shows how truly stupid this idiot was. First for being a racist and second for just plain every day lack of intelligence. We don't need his kind on the air or walking around in public.
    I never heard him on the radio and wouldn't have listened for more than a few seconds, hell I can't stomach more than a few minutes of Rush because he gets it wrong so much, I wonder if he gets his news from the papers. Writer Jim Marrs told me the papers are filled with yesterdays news tomorrow, and he was right.

    That's pretty ****ed up, it's like he's creating crimes for the government to solve.
    Like goading people, who otherwise wouldn't do illegal things, into doing it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    That would constitute entrapment.

    I'm certain that the FBI made sure that any prosecutions resulting from information that Turner handed over did not fall into that category.

    It's not entrapment, I mean they don't have to do illegal things but it seems he's taking advantage of people with possible psychological issues.

    I dislike very much that a political radio host is also an FBI informant, it's a situation asking for abuse.

    Is it still entrapment if the person who does it is an informant and not an officer?

    If they're acting in concert with the government (as most informants are when they act within the scope of their agreement), then yes.
