Three white supremacists sentenced to jail for violent acts

Charlottesville, July 23 (RHC)-- Three white supremacists have been sentenced to two to three years in prison for committing violent acts, including kicking, choking and punching people at the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as other rallies in California.

The U.S. attorney in the case said: “They were not interested in peaceful protest or lawful First Amendment expression; instead, they intended to provoke and engage in street battles with those that they perceived as their enemies.”

A fourth man is still due to be sentenced.  The men belonged to the white supremacist group Rise Above Movement, which the attorney’s office claims has since disbanded.
