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.

AFAIK, it already started.
Attended by thousands. LOL
911 Call from BP station at Stickney & Central...attendant is alone and pregnant....gas station is being trashed and are trying to break into the attendant's booth.
ATTEMPTING TO SET GAS PUMPS ON FIRE
CODE 3 RESPONSE WITH LIGHTS & SIRENS
Back on FOX live now...showing aerial shots.
Fighting words: In the famous case of Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the First Amendment does not protect "fighting words -- those which by their very utterance inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace." (315 U.S. 568, 572 )
Note that the harm involved is physical harm caused by someone else who was provoked by the speaker whose speech is being suppressed. The fact that someone else flies into a rage and causes physical harm results in justifying suppression of speech by another person.
It is simply not a cut-and-dried issue.
In my more paranoid moments, I might suspect that the LLL instigated all this just to help legitimize their new-found Nazi allies. They could also want to obscure growing Nazi-LLL solidarity on so many other issues.
The truth, in all likelihood, is just that not all of them are on the same page yet.
Attendant & a customer successfully saved....but overall situation is not under control.
That could explain a lot.
Sure sounds like it's not under control..FOX is doing excellent live coverage at present..local reporter running to one of the scenes to see what's going on- states the Nazi's have left town.
just watching the foxnews coverage of it now.... looting....and fliped a car over.
The scumbags throwing the rocks are far worse than than silly Nazi's. Throwing rocks in to a group of people is attempted murder. I wish every rock throwers is arrested and charged with attempted murder and spends 20 years in prison. Not liking Nazi's is no reason to kill anyone, or even try to.
Nazis are just left wing kooks, like Femi-nazis, environmental wackos, or the NAACP. Much as their ambitions disappoint lovers of freedom and liberty, we cant go around conducting ourselves with disregard for the rights of others, not limited to the rights of the Nazis, to not be hit in the head with a rock.
My take is the whole battle was within the socialist left, like commies fighting nazis. Neither side valves individual rights, throwing rocks proves the point.
"Attended by thousands. LOL"
Gee, at 50 bucks and a carton of smokes each, you would think that even pocket change from Soros could bring out 100K or so.
Cigarettes are really expensive in D.C. though.
This is a serious situation - but report the facts, FoxNews, not what you think is happening.
Sounds like accurate on the spot reporting..just describing what she's seeing and has been told by authorities..
You're right that would be a better way to protest this hate group. May I also suggest a similar protest for mudslimes?
Reporter says the police are getting calls from people trapped in their homes with a mob rampaging a tossing rocks through windows of the neighborhood. Says that before the riot started lots of gangbangers showed up.
>>Perhaps -- there was supposed to be a counterprotest but the situation has descended into riot more or less.
Unsurprising. The town is extremely left wing socialist in nature, overall.
