This paper discusses the threat assessment behind a plan of protection to transport a very outspoken white supremacist to and from his home to the courthouse, and provide round the clock security for his home. The paper describes the issues and challenges that surround this plan and identifies threats that are divided into two separate categories of organized groups and individuals. The paper specifically looks at the protection detail for the estate and the transportation.

From the Paper:

"Not only are John Smith's (the principal) ideas volatile, but his relationships in white supremacy organizations and other racial organizations have made him a target of nationwide hatred by not only organized groups, but individuals alike. His fans are fanatical about following him and his enemies are bent on his destruction, making his detail extremely dangerous to be on and to lead. Most of those that would attack John Smith are not afraid of arrest or even death, making him an extremely difficult target to protect. Furthermore, John is in his mid to late 40's and confined to a wheelchair. His health is failing, requiring the use of a nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This introduces a new and difficult aspect into the protection puzzle as the nurse can be an unknown factor that is imminently necessary. In the event of an evacuation situation, John Smith will be nearly powerless to flee under his own accord and will need at least one escort in order to remove him safely from a dangerous position. In addition, his nurse who attends all of his events with him, will also need to be protected in order to keep John alive. In essence, these facts make John's detail as difficult as running two simultaneous security details at once."
