Man who drove into Virginia protest is KKK leader, prosecutor says
Virginia prosecutors said on Monday a man facing charges for driving his pickup truck into racial equality protesters is a local leader of the Ku Klux Klan.
Harry H. Rogers, 36, was charged with assault and battery, malicious wounding and felony vandalism, the Henrico County police department said in statement on Monday.
The statement says Rogers on Sunday night drove through a crowd blocking a street near Richmond, Virginia, and protesting the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody. One person was hit by Rogers’ vehicle, but not seriously injured.
Henrico Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor said in a statement on Monday that Rogers “by his own admission and by a cursory glance at social media, is an admitted leader of the Ku Klux Klan and a propagandist for Confederate ideology.”

White men mock anti-racism protest by re-enacting George Floyd’s death
Several white men taunted Black Lives Matter protesters in New Jersey on Monday, where they mockingly re-enacted the death of George Floyd in police custody.
The incident happened during an anti-racism protest involving about 70 people in Franklin Township, N.J., according to reports. Several white men reportedly showed up in pickup trucks decked out in American and pro-Trump flags and started yelling slogans such as “all lives matter” and “white lives matter” at the demonstrators as they drove and marched by.

Hamish Seggie said:My reaction would be to cut all power, water and services to said buildings, cordon them off and tell the miscreants since they are a sovereign nation with no diplomatic ties with the USA they best figure it out.
Brad Sallows said:It's 6 blocks. When the shit piles up and the food runs out and the rapes and assaults begin, the activists will lose their enthusiasm.
