Four Neo-Nazis Arrested for Racial Targeting and Intimidating Journalists

Published by Matt Fishman on

“Four racially motivated violent extremists” from the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen were arrested and charged today “with a conspiracy to threaten and intimidate journalists and activists”. The four targeted “particularly Jews and other minorities, with the intent to cause fear of bodily harm, harass, intimidate, and retaliate against unfavorable reporting.” Towards this end, they sent the journalists “posters” “which included Nazi symbols, masked figures with guns and Molotov cocktails, and threatening language” such as “WE KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE” and “DO NOT FUCK WITH US”.

Those arrested will be tried in federal court.
