Four white supremacists arrested in connection with violent Charlottesville rallies

"Their actions were not only reprehensible but in violation of federal law," said FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Thomas Chadwick.

Four members of a militant white supremacist group who engaged in "street battle" at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville last year were arrested on Tuesday in connection with the violent marches, according to federal prosecutors.

The men, all part of the Rise Above Movement, or RAM, according to a criminal complaint, who flew from California to Virginia to take part in the rally, "assaulted an African-American man, two females and a minister wearing a clerical collar," among others, said the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Virginia, Thomas T. Cullen.

The four men — Benjamin Daley, 25, and Thomas Gillen, 34, both of Redondo Beach, California; Michael Miselis, 29, of Lawndale, California; and Cole White, 24, of Clayton, California — have each been charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the federal riots statute and one count of violating the statute.

"Their actions were not only reprehensible but in violation of federal law," FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Thomas Chadwick said.

"Daley, Miselis, Gillen and White, while on their way to the Unite the Right rally in Emancipation Park, and with their hands taped ready to do street battle, committed multiple acts of violence including punching, kicking, head-butting and pushing numerous people," said Cullen about their alleged involvement in the Unite the Rightrally in downtown Charlottesville on Aug. 12, 2017, where one person was killed.

An "incredible volume of digital evidence" helped federal prosecutors identify and charge the four men, Cullen said.

What an asinine and silly thing to say by an FBI agent.    The defense should use this statement in court since it clearly implies that behavior associated with citizens the agents find 'reprehensible' are the ones the agency goes after.    

Note that often when non-whites commit such violations of federal law they are labeled misunderstood and a plea deal is reached resulting in little to no jail time.

Opinion: Powerful, privileged white men will not win forever 

The past few days may symbolize a battle lost for people who are hoping to dismantle white supremacy and its commitment to patriarchy. But the more people they push to the margins, the stronger (and angrier) the marginalized become.

Of course Princess is confused but I'm 100% sure she would support my comment if it was directed at an FBI agent that called the behavior of the Judge K protesters on Saturday 'reprehensible'  (like those morons Mitch and Donny).      FBI agents shouldn't make political comments,  but instead just do their job.

An outrageous story on #Maddow. Republicans in mostly white Waller County, TX are trying to block mostly black students at Prairie View A&M University from voting. Then they arrested a field director for a candidate who complained about it once they discovered he was a Democrat.

The only way they can win is to cheat.

So a guy running for Georgia governor is the same guy who gets to purge thousands of people from the voter rolls, and we're supposed to take on faith that it's all on the up and up? And Georgia voters are supposed to be OK with this?

 When you don't have the majority and you still think you are entitled to win, then you just have to cheat.

NBC Nightly News with Lester HoltVerified account @NBCNightlyNews 6h6 hours ago

 
 

A jury has convicted a white Michigan man who fired a shotgun at a 14-year-old black teen who knocked on his door to ask for directions on his way to school.

 

Brennan Walker, 14, had missed his bus on the morning of April 12, so he stopped at the Rochester Hills home of Jeffrey Zeigler to ask for directions. But the boy was met by the shotgun-wielding homeowner and ran away, barely escaping injury as Zeigler fired at him.

 

Zeigler, 53, was found guilty of assault with attempt to do great bodily harm and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony....

The lawyer said the gun charge alone comes with a mandatory two years behind bars, to be completed before the assault sentence even starts. The assault conviction could carry anywhere from a few months to a 10-year maximum, he said. .........

:rolleyes:

The story was featured tonight on "NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt".

The black man was a community youth Mentor and a personal friend of the family.

The whole thing was live streamed by the babysitter for everyone to see just how ridiculous it was. Unfortunately the two children were frightened by the police who stopped them and force them to get out of the car. When the police called their mother she was shocked that they had a harassed the babysitter and her children in that manner.

The 911 caller, a white woman, had questioned the babysitter and wasn't pleased with his answer-- so she called the police and followed their car.

 The only way she would have been made a bigger fool would have been if the man had been the father of these children. Which of course, could have been a possibility too. LOL

 It was just a miracle that this white man's out-of-control racism didn't kill that Junior High School aged boy, who was just asking for directions to his school.

Minnesota Halloween Theme Park Told Employees to Refuse Service to Somalis, Then Loses Contract to Operate

“Important! The following sign has been added to the ticket booth. In addition, other signs are being added to encourage guests to call in and report any guest issues while waiting in line. Note that we are having a zero tolerance policy with Somalis. (Other guests, you make your best judgement call) But absolutely zero tolerance with Somalis,” the post read.

 

The private Facebook post sparked outrage in the community....

County Sheriff Jim Olson, County Attorney Mark Metz, and County Administrator David Hemze announced in a statement on Thursday that they have terminated their contract with Scream Park owner Matt Dunn in Chaska, Minnesota, over screenshots on a private Facebook group to employees that targeted Somali customers from coming to the theme park.

“We hold equal treatment of all people among our highest principles,” County Administrator Hemze said. “Mr. Dunn’s comments discriminated against one group based on their national origin. There is no ambiguity to Mr. Dunn’s comments. Mr. Dunn encouraged his employees to racially profile a targeted group and his comments are completely unacceptable....."....

 Again another white racist woman is finding out that calling the police will not get her white privilege back in any and all sundry situations. LOL

If you watch the whole video you will find her being confronted by a younger white woman who is not going to tolerate her racist attitude.
