Los Angeles, October 26 (RHC)-- In the U.S. state of California, the leader of a neo-Nazi gang called the “Rise Above Movement” has been arrested at Los Angeles International Airport.  Robert Rundo was reportedly picked up in Central America and sent back to L.A. 

Rundo faces charges of plotting riots and inciting violence for his role in a range of attacks in 2017, including the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville last August.  Three other members of the group were charged alongside Rundo, though one remains at large. 

The men are accused of participating in violent attacks, as well as using the Internet to incite violence ahead of various events.  The group publicly documented their attacks as a recruitment tool. 

Earlier this month, four other members of the Rise Above Movement were indicted on riot charges.  Rundo reportedly left the United States for Mexico, then Central America, following the four indictments.

Emmett Hoops say:

While this story is hopeful, insofar as the creep was arrested, it is sadly true that it's unlikely in the extreme that he would not have been arrested had his actions been taken in any of the ex-Confederate states.
