The Blissful Ignorance of American neo-Nazis

The violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville reflects the dangerous, open-the-floodgates culture that having a Bully-in-Chief in the White House has created in America.
Hundreds of protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally. 
The rally was dispersed by police minutes after its scheduled start at noon, after clashes between rallygoers and counter-protesters, and after a torchlit pre-rally march Friday night descended into violence.
But later that day, as rallygoers began a march and counterprotests continued, a reported Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one and injuring 19.
Self-described “pro-white” activist Jason Kessler organized the rally to protest the planned removal of a statue of confederate general Robert E. Lee from a park in Charlottesville.

Jakarta. Two alleged drug dealers who had been on the run were arrested on the weekend with two kilos of crystal methamphetamine and around 34,000 ecstasy pills worth around Rp 3 billion ($225,000) in their possession in Bekasi, West Java, police said on Tuesday (17/05).

Bekasi Police chief Sr. Comr. Herry Sumarji told reporters the alleged drug dealers—identified only by their initials E.D. (30) and D.S. (45)—were part of an Indonesian drug syndicate led by one of Indonesia's most wanted drug fugitives, identified as U.G.

Herry said E.D. was arrested with 14 grams of crystal meth in his possession at a rented house on Jalan Masjid Hudal Islam in Pondokgede, Bekasi on Friday at around 10 a.m. 

The next day, police arrested D.S. in the neighboring subdistrict of Jakasampurna thanks to E.D.'s tip-offs.

After questioning both suspects, police again searched D.S.'s rented room and found two kilos of crystal methamphetamine and 34,000 ecstasy pills.

Herry said the drugs allegedly belonged to drug fugitive U.G. who lived in the same rented room with D.S. in Jakasampurna.

U.G. served a sentence for drug dealing at the Karawang Prison last year. He is believed to have returned to the drug business and now controls the drug market in Bekasi and surrounding areas.

According to Indonesia's anti-narcotics law, the amount of drugs confiscated in the raid was more than enough to charge the alleged dealers with the death penalty.
