TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Police used tear gas to break up a rock-throwing crowd that had gathered to protest a planned march Saturday by the National Socialist Movement.
At least two dozen members of a Roanoke, Va.-based group that calls itself "America's Nazi Party" had gathered at Wilson Park just before noon and were to march under police protection.

You're exactly right. It's shameful so many don't "get it."
REPORT FROM TOLEDO PD:
Civilian vehicles widespread getting stoned
I'm all for free speech, but the "National Socialist Movement/America's Nazi Party" does not merit a public platform.
All for speech...yea
Doesnt merit a platform?
They have a right to speak and we have a right to ignore them..
They wanted to get everyone hopping mad. They seem to have succeeded.
developing...Several police vehicles have been sabotaged by having the batteries removed from them.
"Six million Jews Not Enough?"
"Being a NAZI is a real gas hugh?"
"On being a NAZI, 'Nothin says lovin like somethin in the oven!"
Yeah, the truth is the best way to confront these despicable low-lifes.
I hate it when reality gets in the way of a good rant. Get well soon, madam.
"Don't be stupid
Be a smartie
Come and join the Nazi Party"
Two dozen Nazis is a movement?
Sounds like a pathetic losers' club to me.
A *small* pathetic losers' club.
I like the way you think. Laughter and mocking would work well in this situation.
I'm not too crazy about Ohio Communists,either (e.g.,Kusinich).
Or to Farrakan?
Toledo groups plan rally to counter neo-Nazi march 10/9/2005, 1:29 p.m. ET The Associated Press
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) Twenty educational, religious and community groups have organized a rally they hope will take the steam out of a neo-Nazi march through a north Toledo neighborhood. The Erase the Hate event on Saturday will counter a National Socialist Movement march scheduled for the same day. Members of the neo-Nazi group planned their march through a neighborhood they say has been beset by gang violence that threatens white residents. "We believe the Nazi group does not represent anyone in this community," neighborhood resident Tina Gott said. "We will stand against this Nazi rally, and we are asking people not to go to their event."
The unity rally will give residents and community leaders a chance to change minds about the neighborhood, said Terry Glazer, head of Lagrange Development Corp., a group that promotes economic and ethnic diversity in the area.
The leader of the National Socialist Movement's chapter in Roanoke, Va., said the rally won't sway the movement's support base.
"We stated repeatedly ... that the local blacks and their political leaders are a bunch of loudmouthed cowards, and that we expect that, when confronted with their criminal behavior by strong and organized white people, would run, hide, and whine. And it appears that is exactly what is happening," Bill White said in a statement.
City officials have urged the neighborhood residents to ignore the march, which White said will last about an hour.
But the Rev. Mansour Bey of Toledo's First Church of God said that would tell hate groups that their protests don't bother the city.
"Sure, there will be police protection, but what about moral support?" he asked. "Toledo is not a magnet for these hate groups. Toledo is a place where we love and respect."
Officials in Lincoln, Neb., countered a similar rally last year with a diversity rally.
About 50 members of the National Socialist Movement rallied on the Capitol steps while some 1,200 people celebrated at a park more than four miles away.
The senior center where the Toledo unity rally will be held is less than a mile from the planned march.
A white resident's complaints to police about gang violence in the neighborhood got the movement interested in Toledo, White said.
The neighbor, Thomas Szych, has said he did not solicit the group's support, and he doesn't expect its march will alleviate the racial tensions. ___

Tony Snow on FNC right now.
PD has largely pulled back to their command post. At least two large crowds roving and running around unchecked....some PD units think they are up to something.
Can you yell "fire" in a crowded theater?
Does the KKK merit a permit to march in Toledo?
Reporter talking to Tony Snow mentioned maybe 500 people there.
PD estimate reported over radio was 400+ so I don't think the media is exaggerating.
