CBC: Man set on fire in alleged racial attack

Witnesses claim two alleged members of a white supremacist group charged with a racially motivated assault set fire to a Filipino man they saw sleeping on a discarded couch, CBC News has learned.

According to information police used to obtain a search warrant, Alistair Miller and Robert de Chazal were partying in an upstairs apartment on Commercial Drive in East Vancouver on Oct. 10, 2009, when they spotted a man asleep on a sofa outside the building.

One witness claims hearing one of them say, "Let’s go light him on fire," the document says. Another witness claims to have seen Miller “pour the kerosene on the man and then saw de Chazal light him on fire," according to the document.

That's when a black man driving by stopped and intervened. According to the document, a witness said the two accused then attacked the Good Samaritan and shouted a racial slur at him.

Miller, de Chazal and MacDonald are believed to have ties with an internationally recognized hate group known in B.C. as Blood and Honour, police said.

Guess you can find white supremacist nut-jobs everywhere.
