Viral Story Claims Cops And Nazis Are Colluding - Here's The Truth

SnarkyCop

Lawyers for an Antifa group sold the media a conspiracy theory and they ate it up.

Sacramento, CA - On Friday, lawyers for an antifa group claimed that police and neo-Nazis were colluding to prosecute stabbing victims. The media took the story and ran with it, failing to point out that none of the claims hold up against a simple fact check.

The story stems from charges related to a massive brawl between actual white supremacists and antifa groups which occurred in Sacramento in 2016.

White supremacist groups including the Traditionalist Worker Party and Golden State Solidarity held a gathering “to make a statement about the precarious situation our race is in,” according to LA Times.

Antifa group "By Any Means Necessary" (BAMN) showed up with Antifa Sacramento and started attacking the Nazis.

At least five people were stabbed from both sides, nine people were hospitalized, and many more were injured.

"They attacked each other without hesitation," witness Chandra Zafra told LA Times at the time. "It was a war zone."

After the incident, people on the antifa side refused to cooperate with law enforcement while the neo-Nazis, witnesses, and video from the incident all indicated that the hate groups were initially attacked by antifa.

California Highway Patrol conducted a full investigation where they reviewed hundreds of hours of surveillance video, and completed a 2,000 page report asking prosecutors to charge 106 people involved in the riot, with charges including 514 misdemeanors and 68 felonies. The prosecutors declined to file most of those charges, based on what they they claimed was insufficient evidence.

Charges were later filed against three attackers on the antifa side. Porfirio Paz was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and participating in a riot, and Michael Williams and BAMN leader Yvette Felarca were charged with assault with a deadly weapon, participating in a riot, and inciting a riot, according to LA Times.

Despite a refusal from antifa to cooperate with the investigation, William Planer, a member of the Traditionalist Worker Party, was also charged with assault with a deadly weapon and participation in a riot.

That's not the story that the media reported on Friday.

Attorneys for the antifa defendants filed a motion on Friday which Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office calls a complete fabrication, and the media ran with it.

“Every assertion made in defendants’ motion is either inaccurate or fabricated,” Deputy DA Patris Coleman wrote to Sacramento Bee (Sacramento Bee accurately reported on the story.)

Many media outlets referred to Felarca simply as a teacher (she is a middle school teacher,) and painted the picture of a victim. They ignored that she has gone on Fox News and openly claimed involvement in leading the antifa attack at a Milo Yiannopoulos speaking event in Berkeley.

She was also captured on video in Sacramento launching an attack on a suspected white supremacist as he held his hands up.

You can see video of the attack in Sacramento and her interview with Tucker Carlson below:

Yvette Felarca was ordered to pay over $11,000 in damages to former Berkeley College Republicans President Troy Worden last month, after she maliciously obtained a court order to keep him at least 100 yards away from her, Berkeleyside reported. That would have allowed Felarca to prevent Worden from coming on campus to exercise his free speech rights.

Felarca also faces charges from Sep. 26, 2017, when she was arrested for rioting, obstruction and battery while she protested at the Patriot Prayer demonstration at the UC Berkeley campus, Berkeleyside reported.

The antifa attorney also pointed to a phone call where a CHP investigator told a Traditionalist Worker Party member that activists may have requested a copy of their permit, which would have revealed the white supremacist's identity. The officer allegedly told him that he was going to request that his name be redacted until the investigation was complete. Media outlets reported the attorney's claims that this was proof of collusion.

After the motion was filed on Friday, Yvette Felarca declared victory.

“We continue to scare this judge. He didn’t feel he could risk the wrath of the movement, so he booted it to another judge,” Felarca told supporters according to Sacramento Bee. “Short of winning, this is the next best thing. We didn’t lose it.”

Radical groups like AntiFa are anarchists and are dangerous and destructive. Why would anyone believe that cops would collude with Nazis? First off, this takes place in California and they support groups like AntiFa and BLM and other radical groups, and they hate cops. So, I guess it stands to reason the radical msm would say anything to show their hate for cops.

@Det_John_Kimble ah, so you decided to start responding directly to me again. I suppose a couple of weeks to recover from multiple verbal ass beatings allowed you to forget. Dah well, I'll just pick up where I left off, since you'd rather attack me rather than what I said.

The last thing I asked you was how your second marriage is going, and you never responded. Care to issue a response now?

@Betts1221 I'm not adding validation to this story, but the fact that some cops collide with Nazis is not far-fetched. The FBI has long established that white supremacists have infiltrated many civil offices.

People need to learn to run faster and blend into crowds if you're going to fuck up Nazis.

Do some cardio, take some martial arts or boxing classes, wait for them to gather in Anaheim, then make sure your foot connects to their ribs.

Whoops. I may have said too much.

So where in this article you posted does it disprove THE GUARDIAN report of police officers working side by side with Nazis? I read it twice...and all I see is this article quoting NAZI sides of the story...reporting that only ANTIFA members were arrested....but no mention of THE GUARDIAN assertion that POLICE OFFICERS WERE IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH NAZIS, warning NAZIS and protecting them. heres an excerpt: The officer said he would try to protect McCormack. I’m gonna suggest that we hold that or redact your name or something until this gets resolved,” Ayres told McCormack, adding that he didn’t know who had requested records of the permit and noting, “If I did, I would tell you.”

@Heezels the 2006 report is a good place to start. Below is a link of a more current brief. WARNING, the link is to the website theintercept.com. If you're unfamiliar with them, they're like a Wikileaks lite. If you come across any docs listed SECRET/NOFORN,I suggest clicking off that document quickly.

However, this specific report is UNCLAS/FOUO.

@harryballsax seeing how Krav Maga is already a mixed bag of martial arts (what some would call one of the first forms of MMA), it is already a huge "appropriation," but has now taken a bunch of styles and created something bigger then the sum of its parts.

Alright, I see. I've gone through he links, not too in-depth, a quick scan. There doesn't seem to be any real hard data on the amount of white racists in Law enforcement. Of the instances of racism in private texts i did find, I found that many of the officers involved where hispanic and asian as well as white. Even one black guy.

Look, I agree that making sure racist scumbags stay off of the force is a high priority, up there with creating a recruitment standard that limits the amount of people who are prone to pathological use of force. But there isn't enough here to say that this thing is systemic. In fact, the the very reason that the FBI and various departments have been keeping data on this, and trying to get officers fired for espousing racist thoughts kind of points to the fact that this isn't exactly the problem the above viral video tries to make it out to be.

Again, are the racist shitheads in Law enforcement a problem? Yes. Given the change in moral social standards the US has gone through, I'd also say that these guys and gals are in a pretty small club. It's enough o do real damage to people. But it isn't enough to formulate a blanket response over all law enforcement and paint them with the broadest possible brush.

@Heezels the articles that have been written about this current situation are sensational, but that's what article titles are. There was collusion and protection between Sacramento cops and neo-Nazis; this Blue Lives Matter article mentioned it and then switched the focus to Antifa. There are actual recordings of a detective saying he would protect the identity of a collaborative Nazi, and if the detective found out who requested the information, they would pass that name and information back to the Nazi.

This article conveniently left out the fact that the detective was willing to pass someone's personal information back to the Nazi. If that's not collusion, I don't know what is.

@Det_John_Kimble yes, i've been in real fights, and training fights, and competition fights. I've done some form of boxing or martial arts off and on for about 15 years.

What about you? Have you ever been in any real fights?

"There was collusion and protection between Sacramento cops and neo-Nazis"

Okay. But what I'm saying is that it isn't departmental policy to do so. In fact it's straight up illegal. The system itself tends to fire these types of officers. Hell, a Pennsylvania officer got the boot because she wrote in a private snapchat message "I'm the law nigga" with a picture of herself in uniform. Was it tactful? No. But for fuck's sake it sure as shit wasn't racist. She was a millennial kid who liked hip hop.

@Heezels i'm not at all defending blanket statements against cops. Against what many on here say against me, i've repeatedly said cops are absolutely essential and the vast majority of them are upstanding citizens. BUT, given how much power and authority a cop rightfully has, any negative action that isn't IMMEDIATELY drummed out publicly causes those around the situation to be called into question. I'm not saying it's right, but it is human nature.

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@Heezels I am unequivocally against crooked cops, and like Uncle Ben said, with great power comes great responsibility. This is an unpopular opinion, but i believe a cop convicted of wrongdoing should suffer higher consequences than the average citizen. You were given more power, you should have more punishment for abusing that extra power.

Heezels

I agree with the crooked cop bit, but i'm against any draconian policy. Especially against citizens of the US. There are varying circumstances to everything. A crime committed is a crime committed. But Some things that can be corrected through training, I'd prefer that training be the punishment. Same goes for civilian drug users. If the problem can be corrected through rehab, than rehab is the better policy.

@Det_John_Kimble he may have also been on Wall Street prior to going full white supremacist, if i recall correctly. I haven't verified that, but I think I remember hearing that a couple years ago.

Figures. Californians are more likely to jump on a story like this without checking sources or facts. I think they have their own special dictionary for stuff.
