Nine suspects associated with some of the country’s most established and violent white supremacist groups have been arrested on hate crimes charges, the Southern Poverty Law Center reports.
They were detained early Saturday, mere hours after James Alex Fields, Jr., the neo-Nazi who drove his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Heather Heyer.
One of the people arrested was Travis David Condor, head of the hate-music record label American Defense Records. He had praised Mathews on social media. Condor was also photographed rallying alongside members of the Hammerskin Nation at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
Condor is known for previously joining three others in attacking a homeless Cleveland man in 2010, beating him with pipes and a baseball bat and accusing him of “trespassing” and being a “bum.” Condor was on active duty with the 82nd Airborne Division at the time — sporting a “baby killer” patch on his fatigues — but was sentenced to just 90 days in prison after giving a face-to-face apology to the victim, with time served.
An absolute disgrace these white supremacists are.
