The FBI has recently made posts on various social media, recommending that “family members and peers” turn people in to the FBI if they suspect them of “homegrown violent extremism”.
“Family members and peers are often best positioned to witness signs of mobilization to violence. Help prevent homegrown violent extremism. Visit https://go.usa.gov/x6mjf to learn how to spot suspicious behaviors and report them to the #FBI. #NatSec“
The Twitter post also includes a link to a booklet put out by the Department of National Intelligence (DNI), telling what warning signs to look for in your friends and loved ones.
The “indicators” in the booklet are ranked, some of them being “highly diagnostic on their own”, others “require one or more other indicators to gain diagnosticity [sic].” As well, the booklet concluded with “risk factors” to watch out for in others.
