3 hate groups arr on the rise across the country. experts say several events have brought this on, including 9/11, the election of president obama, and changing demographics. susan candiotti takes a closer look. 3 --reporter pkg-as follows -- when wade page inexplicably targeted a sikh temple in wisconsin, the white supremacist not only claimed innocent lives, his actions highlighted a disturbing trend: hate groups are on the rise. "the hate movement has
been basically, rapidly rising now for over a decade." in 2000, the southern poverty law center was tracking just over 600 hate groups... by 2011, that number dramatically increased to one-thousand eighteen. what changed? some say the changing face of america... starting with the 2000 census hich predictee by 2055, less than half of the if you're a white supremacist and you find that out, it's pretty terrifying because that's, puts an end to your dreams of creating a white nation in the united states." (nats) hate groups and hate crimes are mainly motivated by race and religion... (nats) supremacist is reed for fatally shooting a security guard at washington's hooocaust memorial. he died while awaiting trial. 2011--at a martin luther king parade in spokane, washington, the fbi
finds a backpack loaded wwth &pexplosives and an anti-blood clotting agent. this man-- identified as a white supremacist- pleads guilty to a federal hate crime. this year, 14 alleged members of the anarchist group --american charges including anti-american paramilitary training and planning an attack in central florida. prosecutors say their ultimate aim is race war against jews, immigrants and other minorities. trials are scheduled for later this year. which brings us back to sikh temple shooter wade page. how do you stop an apparent lone wolf? "the sad fact is that wade page is just one of thousands of people, who look like him with the racist tattoos, who say vile things about kiiling jews or blacks or whatever the case might be. but he decided to step over to violence, and most people won't, and it's very very hard
to know when that's going to happen." the fbi says unless there's a threat of violence, agents cannot arrest them, no matter how hateful the speech. susan candiottt, cnn, new york. -----end----- cnn.script----- internet...at warp speed! speed!the state with the fastest connection... that's not far. far.and later...a water fun fight... causes trouble for a small town.the major thing that was done... that has citizens upset!

a new survey shows which states have the fastest internet connections. you may be surprised by who the winner is. alison kosik has the results. 3 --reporter pkg-as follows -- the big winner is one of the smallest states. delaware has the fastest internet connection sseed. according to the latest survey by internet provider akamai, deeaware had an average connection speee of 10-point-2 megabits per
second. if you were expecting new york or california, home to silicon valley, to top the list, then the winner was probably a surprise. but akamai says delaware has always been a strong performer. some of that has to do with its size... delaware is the second-smallest state in the country, which makes it easier to bring higher speed connectivity to most of the population. runner-ups were new hampshire, vermont, utah, and rhode island. the slowest internet connection is found in arkansas. the good news is things are speeding up across the board. the average internet speed in all 50 states has increased since the end of last year. that's thanks to continued investment being made by both telecoms and the government. but even though the internet is getting faster, it still may not feel like it. that's because we're using more and more technology. with tablets, laptops, and smartphonns, many people connect to the internet anytime they want... putting greater strain on the network. i'm alison kosik in new york. -----end-----cnn.script----- --keyword tags-- an alligator... loses it at an indiana county fair...
