Hate And Extremism in Great Falls Leads to Public Meeting

Crime statistics never lie.  It's hard to look at black and white numbers on a screen and try to deny them.  Even if you don't trust those numbers, you only need to talk with neighbors or friends in our city that have been a statistic concerning a given crime.

Sure, we talk about drug problems that plague us, or drunk driving numbers that lead the country, or even someone dealing with a car or garage being broken into.  But what about hate crime and extremism in Great Falls?

It Seems That Is Becoming More and More Prevalent in Our Town

It was just a few short months ago that Great Falls was in the thick of a hate and extremism targeting spree.  Hate fliers and stickers placed everywhere on buildings, street signs and more.

As that prevalence becomes more across not only Great Falls, but across Montana, one group is spearheading an effort to make a difference.
