Austin police officer paints accountability groups as domestic extremists

If you can't read it, it basically says that Berry has come across some information on a "national domestic extremism trend" that is echoed by local activist groups. He claims to have found "mirror warning signs" in "FBI intel." From there, his own report follows, naming such unlikely domestic extremists as CopBlock, CopWatch and Peaceful Streets. Also included are sovereign citizens groups and government accountability activists.

When you get into the details, he's basically saying that because some groups have members that are angry and talk about being angry online, they are "domestic extremists" which, as we all know, is simply police code for "domestic terrorists who haven't done anything.... yet". As a category for police, that's pretty much indistinguishable from "ordinary citizen".
