Crossfire: Waller in new documentary about extremist violence

In a new documentary about violent political extremism in the United States, Center for Security Policy Senior Analyst for Strategy describes crowd mentality and how normally nonviolent people can be induced to commit vandalism and acts of violence.

Crossfire, produced by Lauren Southern and Scooter Downey, documents some of the worst violence plaguing the U.S. in 2020.

In it, Dr. Waller describes, from his own experience, how easy it is for a normal person, caught up in crowd action, to throw a brick or even a Molotov cocktail and transform from an innocent observer to a member of a violent mob.
