Texas intelligence centers now track hateful rhetoric online
from Houston Chronicle
State and federal officials in Texas have started monitoring racist and incendiary rhetoric online, such as that alleged to have been used by the suspect in the El Paso, Texas, mass shooting, in the hopes of preventing violent attacks in the future. Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw recently told a select House committee on mass violence prevention that officials at so-called fusion centers — multi-agency intelligence centers throughout the state — had not previously done that work, in part because of the public’s concerns about privacy.
