High court rejects 2 Virginia white nationalist rally cases

an hour ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is leaving in place the convictions of two men who as members of a white supremacist group participated in a white nationalist rally in Virginia in 2017 that turned violent.

The high court said Monday that it would not take the case of Michael Miselis or Benjamin Daley, who participated in the rally as members of the “Rise Above Movement,” or “RAM.” Both pleaded guilty to federal rioting charges in connection with the Virginia rally.

As is typical, the high court didn’t comment in turning away their cases.

Miselis and Daley admitted they punched and kicked demonstrators who showed up to protest against white nationalists during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in August 2017. One person died after a car plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting the rally. Shortly after, a Virginia State Police helicopter that officials said was assisting with the rally crashed, killing the pilot and a trooper.

1. Good! Keep that scum locked up!

White nationalists don't belong anywhere near society. They're in prison where they belong.

5. Well if Aug 15th is the big day..........

Hope every TV news camera is there to document the largest inauguration crowd ever in the history of this
country. And to video Qrump (if he shows up) begging for donations for a golden toilet for his jail cell he
knows is coming his way.

4. There is no right to riot

And there is no right to use violence against people who protest against your protest.

Makes sense to me.

7. The "anti Riot Act" was once known as the "H. Rap Brown Law"

I see some irony in white supremacists being prosecuted under an act named for a famous 1960s Black Power advocate.
