Neo-Nazi Just Got Charlottesville Cops To Issue Arrest Warrant For Black Beating Victim

By  | 

A warrant was just issued by the Charlottesville Police Department for the arrest of DeAndre Harris, the 20-year-old black man who was mercilessly beaten in a parking garage next to a police precinct by a crowd of white supremacists in the August violence that also resulted in the death of anti-racism activist Heather Hayer.

In an egregious heaping on of injustice, Mr. Harris has been accused by one of his attackers of “unlawful wounding.”

 In a interview with The Root, shortly after the attack, Mr. Harris said:‘Me and about five of my friends were out protesting. We thought [the racists] left, but at one point they came back. Everyone was exchanging words with the group, but then the KKK and white supremacists just rushed us . . . They were beating me with poles. I have eight staples in my head, a broken wrist and a chipped tooth . . . The beating happened right beside the Police Department, and no police were there to help me at all.My mother is now thinking about suing the city of Charlottesville

It weeks of Shaun King leading a 12-step verification process on Twitter to identify all of Mr. Harris’ neo-Nazi attackers before just two of them were charged for “malicious wounding.”

However, it is clear from all photographs of the incident that there were certainly more than two attackers.

After the brutal beating, DeAndre Harris received ongoing death threatsfrom the racist thugs.

As if that were not enough, now one of the cowards who attacked him is crying “assault.”

To make matters even worse, some of those very same neo-Nazis, the ones President Trump encouraged by calling them “very fine people,” reconvened this past Saturday in Charlottesville, bearing torches and chanting, “You will not replace us.  We will be back.”

Though the warrant against Mr. Harris has been issued, an arrest has yet to be made.

Watch this story closely.  If Mr. Harris is arrested, the whole nation must cry out against the injustice.

As Edmund Burke famously said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

At what point do the “good” men and women who allow evil to triumph become evil themselves by their very inaction?  This is a moment in history when we must each ask ourselves which side we’re on.
