Neo-Nazi that attacked pro-immigration supporters in Morristown, NJ charged

One People's Project | That's right. No more of this "Erick_K_W" crap. His name is Erick Karl Weigel, NOT Frederick K. Williams, as said in other stories. We also have to make a correction. His wife's name is not Annette, as has also been said in past articles. It's Joyce. What else have we learned? Oh just that while everyone was trying to make them out as martyrs because they had a little fight with antifa after the rally in Morristown last month, it turns out that they were probably not the innocent little anti-immigrant activists they were painting themselves out to be. No, Erick caught a charge in that little melee, something that no one knew until now. Now we still do not know what fully happened. We won't know that until it goes through the court system. With that in mind we have to ask: why did so many people with so little facts decide that oh, the Nazis were the good guys in this? We really want to know why Robb Pearson of the anti-immigration group ProAmerica Society and Daniel Smeriglio of another group called Voice of the People felt it necessary to wish the two neo-Nazis well without knowing the full story, but to be honest we don't care. We know what they are about, despite their pronouncements that they are not racist or work with racists. Erick and Joyce are just making it ever more obvious!

Group To Protest Child Welfare Agency Failures At New York City Hall

Eugene Weixel | Last week New York City's Department of Investigations (DOI) issued a report blasting the Administration for Children's Services (ACS) case practice regarding ten children who were known to the agency who died violently.
