Hal Turner is one of the most vocal neo-Nazis in the country.

Turner broadcasts an Internet radio show from New Jersey and advocates violence against those who disagree with him. Turner recently ended his broadcast and he is not returning calls.

But the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights law firm and advocacy group, alleges that Turner is an informant for the FBI. Mark Potok, the director of the intelligence project at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Alabama, says that evidence from Turner's computer convinced the SPLC that the charges are true. Potok says that the FBI may have crossed an ethical line.
