Tonight, we're bringing you a special edition of 360°: "American Radical: The Lone Wolf." We think it's important to talk about the wave of terrorism that's largely gone unnoticed here in the U.S. These are shootings and bombings on Americans, by Americans.
The latest attack was Wednesday at Washington's U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Police say Stephen Tyrone Johns, 39, a security officer at the museum, was killed by an 88-year-old white supremacist. Stephen, at six foot six, was known as a "gentle giant." He was so kind to others, sadly, one of his last acts was to hold the door open so the elderly man who authorities said would shoot him could come inside. The reality is there have been many attacks in the U.S. this spring by so-called "lone wolves", those who are filled with so much hate they act along and not as part of a group.
Tonight we'll look at what's fueling the hate. Could it be the election of America's first African-American president and even the rocky economy? Our experts weigh in.
You'll also hear from a former skinhead. Who inspired him to change his life for the better? Don't miss his remarkable story.
Plus, Erica will have all the day's other headlines. We're waiting to see who won the presidential election in Iran. And, an American accused of murder in Italy takes the stand in her own defense.
Join us for all this and more starting at 10pm ET.
See you then!
