The Blissful Ignorance of American neo-Nazis

The violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville reflects the dangerous, vicious, 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. Bali Police anti-narcotics unit chief Sr. Comr. Franky Haryanto Parapat was reportedly arrested for the alleged extortion of arrested drug dealers, including a Dutch national.

Franky was nabbed at around 10 p.m. on Monday (20/09) in a sting operation conducted by the National Police's internal security division (Paminal).

National Police chief Gen. Tito Karnavian expressed his satisfaction with the arrest, as the institution is stepping up efforts to curb the illegal drug trade.

"I have not heard the details. If it is true, I commend the National Police's Paminal and Propam [internal affairs division] for having carried out my orders. I said in several meetings lately – maybe last week, during the operational ceremony – that my policy is to fight against drugs," Tito said at the National Police Hospital in East Jakarta.

Tito said he instructed the police's internal affairs and security affairs divisions to back up these efforts by closely monitoring officers who are suspected of cooperating with drug dealers.

National Police spokesman Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar said the case involving the mid-ranking officer is still being investigated by the internal affairs and security affairs divisions.

"If we find proof of any crime, we will charge him. But it is still the authority of the Bali provincial police chief," Boy said.

According to unconfirmed reports, Franky allegedly extorted money from seven suspected drug dealers and drug users – who had been arrested for possessing less than 0.5 grams of crystal methamphetamine. He reportedly received around Rp 100 million ($7,600) from each person.

He allegedly also demanded a Toyota Fortuner SUV from a Dutch national, who was arrested in a drug raid.
