Racist Hate Group To Conduct Nighttime Patrols On College Campus

By Scott Keyes on Mar 25, 2013 at 4:32 pm

A racist hate group at Towson University has announced plans to conduct its own nighttime police patrols on campus.

Founded last year, the White Student Union has stirred significant controversy already. The organization has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. In addition, its founder, Matthew Heimbach (who goes by the title “Commander Heimbach”), and fellow organizer Scott Terry interrupted a minority outreach panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference this month in order to defend slavery, noting that slaveholders provided blacks with food and shelter. Terry later told ThinkProgress that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa” and he’d be “fine” living in a society where blacks are permanently subservient to whites.

The Towerlight has more on the vigilante plan:

The controversial White Student Union has resurfaced on Towson’s campus with plans to conduct random nighttime patrols, which members say are for students’ protection.

Some members of the group, equipped with flashlights, will conduct on-campus safety walks, and female members will carry pepper spray in an attempt to protect students from various crimes like sexual assaults and robberies, WSU President Matthew Heimbach said.

Heimbach said female members have also been enrolling in self-defense classes, and members have been going to local gun ranges as a group, but not in a “military way,” Heimbach said.
He said group members would carry no weapons on the nighttime walks.

3. What an embarrassment to all Caucasoids.

I for one am totally embarrassed to be a caucasoid at times...and after reading that, this is one of those times. I think biologically we have evolved to our apex, but mentally some of us have de-evolved back to a time period of barbarism.

Yep, that's the "Commander's" ambition, to enter the seminary and join the priesthood. No kidding.

I'm not big into reality TV, but what I wouldn't give to see a camera crew follow around this brave, upstanding brigade of concerned citizens on "patrol"...

8. They sound like the 'Legion of Doom' from Paschal High back in the 80's

In fact a lot of recent stories remind me of incidents that happened back then. In fact, I looked up some of the schmucks from this story - they have not changed one iota.

DOOMSDAY
They were clean-cut student leaders. All-American boys who just happened to think Hitler had some good ideas. So they set out to purify Paschal High.


EARLY ONE SUNDAY morning in a Fort Worth neighborhood, where faded sedans and wood-paneled station wagons line the street, neighbors heard a single pop, much like a firecracker blast. Some would later say they heard laughter and cheers drifting from a vacant shopping center lot nearby, but the voices hardly seemed worth getting out of bed to investigate. Not until daylight came did they discover nearly a dozen police cars blocking the street and as many federal agents scavenging through the shrubbery. It was their first glimpse of an incident that would shock a quiet sliver of suburbia into a painful self-consciousness. Within days, that eerie sound evolved into what would be for some, a personal crisis; for others, a racial threat; and for students at the city’s oldest high school, the focus of a bizarre and bitter tale.

The voices that pierced the predawn silence on that morning in late March came minutes after Trey Hill’s 1980 blue Datsun was pipe bombed outside his parents’ home. For the so-called Legion of Doom-nine self-anointed Paschal High School vigilantes-the celebration was most likely their last. As police began to piece together a string of incidents stretching from January to March, news of the students-turned-vigilantes shocked teachers, parents and classmates. By the time the case went to the grand jury more than a month later, rumors meshed with truth to paint a picture so alarming that television producers couldn’t wait to hype the Legion of Doom as the latest Texas tragedy. Editorial writers chewed on the subject, then spat guilt in the faces of parents in the affluent Overton Park and Tanglewood neighborhoods where most of the members lived. Reporters set up camp on the school’s front lawn, and national television crews turned the classroom into a carnival. The Legion of Doom was drama at its best, with the explosive elements of racism, sadism and Nazism rolled into a seemingly all-American setting.

On the following Monday, as news of the pipe bombing circulated through the halls of Paschal High, Trey Hill sat in an English class with the Legion of Doom member who only a day earlier had allegedly taped a homemade pipe bomb to the window of Hill’s souped-up Datsun. The explosion, police say, was so powerful it easily could have killed someone. Instead it shattered the car’s windshield, melted the steering wheel and ripped the vinyl from the seats. Hill had put much of his time and money into that sports car, so on this school day morning, diagraming sentences was the last thing on his mind. His thoughts kept returning to the scene of the vandalism, where police had found footprints in the flowerbeds outside his bedroom and scraps of duct tape streaming from the window. "They probably tried to tape the bomb to the bedroom window," investigators told Hill’s parents. "But the pipe bomb was too heavy, so they taped it to the car."

Hill was not the only victim of that weekend spree. A few blocks away, the mother of another Paschal student found a note on the windshield of her son’s car. Walking away from the automobile, she realized that the object inside was a dead cat, gutted and draped across the steering wheel. The animal’s collar and vaccination tag were still hanging from its neck.

As this article goes to press, a Fort Worth grand jury has just returned 33 indictments, 17 of them felonies, against seven members of the Legion of Doom. Darren Dietrich, Joe David Dorris, Charles Fillmore, Michael Guthrie, James Mathis Jr., David Norman and James A. Turner all face felony charges. An eighth Legion member, Bradley Bielss, faces two misdemeanor charges. Rich Williams, 16, a juvenile, was referred to Juvenile Court. Though the indictments fell short of police expectations of charges of organized crime, the returned accusations were no less serious. And they came on the day of Paschal High School’s graduation ceremony. The eight accused students were not allowed to join fellow classmates in their triumphal march across the stage. Instead, their diplomas were in the mail.

14. For all that they received a slap on the wrist.

AROUND THE NATION; Texas School Vigilantes Are Given Jail Terms

AP Published: June 11, 1986

FORT WORTH, June 10— Five members of the Legion of Doom, a student vigilante group that sought to eliminate crime and drug abuse at a high school by intimidating suspected wrongdoers, have been sent to jail.

Four of the teen-agers were sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail and 10 years of probation. Another was sentenced to 14 days in jail and 10 years of probation. The other two received five years of probation.

Judge Don Leonard of State District Court also ordered members of the group at Paschal High School to pay about $8,000 in restitution, write 1,000-word reports on the ''value of probation'' and spend up to 200 hours in community service.


And they made a movie about them.

Brotherhood of Justice

These are dangerous times. A group of high school students are inspired enough by their Headmaster's anti-vandalism campaign to actively pursue a cure for the problem. Rich kid, jock hero Derek (KEANU REEVES) leads the class debate.

The mahogany actor waxing lyrical to his entire class about the state of affairs is an experience not to be missed. Weary of the escalating vandalism and drug peddling at their school, a select few jocks (led by Derek) become a group of masked vigilantes called 'The Brotherhood of Justice'.

They begin with a system of 'watching people,' in order to put fear into the hearts of the criminals, but their actions soon become less passive and more aggressive. Drug dealers are attacked and stabbed, even on school grounds and at parties.

'Dammit man, I been stabbed' (drug dealer)

Before long, even their lofty ideals are beginning to crumble. Brotherhood members remember old, petty, unsettled scores they would like to settle.

15. There were two movies made. Brotherhood of Justice and Dangerously Close.

Watched both of them over the weekend. 'Dangerously Close' actually wasn't that bad for a rated b thriller.

Yes, the Legion of Doom suffered NOTHING!!!! for their deeds and I mentioned that I searched a few of the perps and the ones I found hadn't changed an iota - they are as awful now as they were then.

No kidding. Saw a report on this on a DC TV station this morning, which included an interview with Nazi-boy. His ambition is to enter the seminary and become a priest.

This makes about as much sense as Sherrif Joe's armed criminal posse patrolling Arizona schools.
