Skip to comments.White supremacists arrested on 'race war' charges in Florida

Law enforcement officials in central Florida have been rounding up members of a white supremacist group who were allegedly training with weapons at a rural Osceola County compound. The training was reportedly in preparation for a coming "race war."
The group was also planning a "disturbance" at Orlando City Hall to recruit new members, according to court documents.
The arrests of the 10 alleged members of the neo-Nazi skinhead group American Front, or AF, came after a confidential informant infiltrated its Osceola County chapter and shared information about the group's plans with state investigators.
The arrests serve as one of numerous reminders of the efforts of law enforcement to monitor, and sometimes crack down on, the militia and hate groups whose numbers have ticked up since the election of President Obama.
In Alaska on Monday, a 12-member jury was selected in the trial of three militia members who are accused of planning to kill judges and police, according to the Anchorage Daily News. In Georgia on Tuesday, two militia members who had allegedly planned to attack government workers and buildings attended a pretrial hearing after two of their alleged conspirators agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors, according to the Associated Press.
Seven of the arrests in Florida occurred over the weekend, with three more suspects arrested Monday, according to court documents and a statement from the office of Lawson Lamar, the state attorney based in Orlando.
Each of the seven, including the apparent ringleader, Marcus Faella, 41, faces state felony charges of attempting to shoot into an occupied dwelling, evidence of prejudice while committing a crime, and violation of a state "paramilitary training" statute....

Beat me to it.
These “neonazis” are scumbags, but I don’t want to hear ANYTHING about “white racists” until some sort of equal application of the law exists when it comes to the NBPs.
Anything they say it is? The Wild and Free Pigs of the Okefenokee Swamp, indeed...
Who is kookier? Race gangs, or the authorities?
One group drives dented cars —the other doesn’t.
I'm kind of bummed, to tell the truth. The federal prosecutors and the FBI will now be too busy with this to investigate the couple of billion dollars that Jon Corzine stole. And they were JUST getting ready to, and all....
“What’s a “paramilitary training” statute?”
The grounds on which they will one day, round up all of us evil, white Christian preppers.
I’m with you, 2DV. Where are the Black Panther arrests?
I’d as soon not live around these folks since, if they had their druthers, they’d shoot me and my wife. The same could be said for the NBPP but no one seems much interested in them.
No one wants to see this. Everyone has friends/family/other. Blacks putting a bounty on Zimmerman in Florida (the State in question) is perfectly fine however. Justify that please.
...can you say "epic"?
I knew you could.
Don’t forget LaRaza.
Ummm...this has been going on nationwide for a year now. A great many groups are planning, have planned, have executed "disturbances" in major cities. No one seems to be fretting over that. Is it because they are just a bunch of dirty hippies that don't have.......EEEEEK! ... guns?!!!
evidence of prejudice while committing a crime
You know this isn’t going to stop here.
Everyone who robs some one is prejudiced
against the other person cause they have
money and the robber doesn’t.
Gona git me some MONEY.
When was the last time you were accosted due to your ethnicity?
EVERY year, on April 15.
What were they charged with?
You’ll hear about white racists every week until the election, in an attempt to garner support for our non-African-American mulatto.
If yesterday was an underwear terror plot, and today was a white racist plot, what will tomorrow be? Gender gap lawsuit in a big firm?
Obama’s media is the bread & circuses of truly stupid, dependent sheeple.
Dont forget LaRaza.
Don’t forget Obama/Holder/loony left who have been pushing the racial cold war from a postision of high authority.
