The new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Steven Dettelbach, says the U.S. is "at an inflection point" with a rise in hate-filled violence.

"I've seen what seems to be like a more brazen, a more violent, a more outward problem of hate-filled violence and I do think that these are things that we have to confront and acknowledge," he said at the Eradicate Hate Global Summit in Pittsburgh Wednesday.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with Dettelbach.
