We Found Photos of Ole Miss Students Posing With Guns in Front of a Shot-Up Emmett Till Memorial. Now They Face a Possible Civil Rights Investigation.
"OXFORD, Miss. — Three University of Mississippi students have been suspended from their fraternity house and face possible investigation by the Department of Justice after posing with guns in front of a bullet-riddled sign honoring slain civil rights icon Emmett Till. One of the students posted a photo to his private Instagram account in March showing the trio in front of a roadside plaque commemorating the site where Till's body was recovered from the Tallahatchie River. The 14-year-old black youth was tortured and murdered in August 1955. An all-white, all-male jury acquitted two white men accused of the slaying."

Four teenagers charged over homophobic attack on London bus
"Four teenage boys have been charged with an aggravated hate crime after a suspected homophobic attack on two women on a London bus. Melania Geymonat, 28, and her girlfriend, Chris, 29, were left needing hospital treatment after the attack – in which a phone and a bag were stolen – in the early hours of 30 May. A photograph of the couple's bloodied faces went viral in the days after. The boys have been charged with an aggravated hate crime under the Public Order Act. They will appear at Highbury Corner youth court on 21 August. Geymonat and Chris had been travelling on a night bus in Camden when a group of boys allegedly began demanding that they kiss and called them "lesbians" after realising they were a couple. The women were subsequently assaulted, leaving them with facial injuries."

Far-right arsonist sets himself on fire as he attempts to burn down synagogue
"London (CNN)A far-right extremist has been locked up in a UK hospital indefinitely after setting fire to a synagogue in the city of Exeter, Press Association (PA) reports. Tristan Morgan, whom one prosecutor described as having "deep-rooted anti-Semitic belief," was sectioned under the Mental Health Act at London's Old Bailey on Friday, after the court heard that he was having a psychotic episode during the time of the attack. According to PA, Morgan admitted to arson, to having a white supremacist handbook and to encouraging terrorism by publishing a song titled, 'White Man,' to Soundcloud. CCTV footage recovered at the scene was shared by local police. It showed Morgan using a small ax to break a window of the Exeter Synagogue, and pouring a liquid inside on July 21, 2018—on a day commemorating the Holocaust."

Indiana man sentenced to federal prison for vandalism at Carmel synagogue
"An Indiana man whose beliefs in Nazism and white supremacy motivated him to paint swastikas at a Carmel synagogue last year was sentenced to three years in prison for the hate crime, federal authorities said. Nolan Brewer, 21, of Eminence, Indiana, was sentenced Monday for conspiring to violate the civil rights of Congregation Shaarey Tefilla, a Jewish synagogue, in the July 28, 2018, defacement. Brewer pleaded guilty to the federal hate crime, U.S Attorney Josh J. Minkler said in a news release Tuesday. Prosecutors said evidence showed the vandalism was not a "spur-of-the-moment childhood prank," but rather an attack fueled by Brewer's beliefs in Nazism. He told investigators that he and his wife, a minor, targeted the synagogue because it was "full of ethnic Jews," authorities said. "

Jack Renshaw: Neo-Nazi who said homosexuality was 'unnatural' revealed as paedophile who groomed young boys
"A neo-Nazi who plotted to murder a Labour MP with a machete is a convicted paedophile who groomed underage boys, it can be revealed. Jack Renshaw's past offences could not be reported during his trial for alleged membership of the terrorist group National Action, which was banned over its "racist, antisemitic and homophobic" ideology in 2016. But restrictions lifted when the jury failed to reach a verdict on charges that Renshaw and two other defendants remained members of the group after it was proscribed. Renshaw previously admitted plotting to murder Rosie Cooper, the Labour MP for West Lancashire, and a police officer who investigated him for child sex offences."

Feds looking into bias motivation after suspect arrested in Louisiana church fires
"Authorities investigating a white suspect accused of burning down three historically black churches in Louisiana said they must determine if racial bias was a motivation and if he was influenced by a subgenre of music linked to white nationalist ideology. Holden Matthews, 21, is being charged with three counts of simple arson on religious buildings, and faces up to 15 years in prison per charge, State Fire Marshall Butch Browning said at a news conference. He added that Matthews, who was taken into custody late Wednesday without incident, has a possible connection with "black metal" music and "its associated history with church burnings in other parts of the world.""

Iran: Shocking 33-year prison term and 148 lashes for women's rights defender Nasrin Sotoudeh
"The sentencing of prominent Iranian human rights lawyer and women's rights defender Nasrin Sotoudeh to 33 years in prison and 148 lashes in a new case against her is an outrageous injustice, said Amnesty International today.

In September 2016, she had been sentenced in her absence to five years in prison in a separate case. "

Italian protests over men cleared of rape because woman was 'too masculine'
"About 200 people protested outside a court of appeal in the Italian city of Ancona after it was revealed that two men were cleared of rape charges partly because the alleged victim looked "too masculine" to be a target of attraction. The reasons behind the 2017 ruling came to light only on Friday, when Italy's highest appeal court scrapped the lower court's verdict and ordered a retrial. The men had been convicted of raping a woman of Peruvian origin, who was 22 at the time of the attack in 2015, by a court of first instance in 2016. Her name was not made public under Italian law. They were then acquitted by the Ancona appeals court, with the judges' reasoning document including a passage that said the woman's story was not credible enough as she resembled a man and was therefore unappealing."

Revealed: FBI investigated civil rights group as 'terrorism' threat and viewed KKK as victims
"The FBI opened a "domestic terrorism" investigation into a civil rights group in California, labeling the activists "extremists" after they protested against neo-Nazis in 2016, new documents reveal. Federal authorities ran a surveillance operation on By Any Means Necessary (Bamn), spying on the leftist group's movements in an inquiry that came after one of Bamn's members was stabbed at the white supremacist rally, according to documents obtained by the Guardian. The FBI's Bamn files reveal: The FBI investigated Bamn for potential "conspiracy" against the "rights" of the "Ku Klux Klan" and white supremacists. The FBI considered the KKK as victims and the leftist protesters as potential terror threats, and downplayed the threats of the Klan, writing: "The KKK consisted of members that some perceived to be supportive of a white supremacist agenda." The FBI's monitoring included in-person surveillance, and the agency cited Bamn's advocacy against "rape and sexual assault" and "police brutality" as evidence in the terrorism inquiry. "

How a California officer protected neo-Nazis and targeted their victims
"The testimony of a California police officer leading the probe into a series of stabbings at a neo-Nazi rally indicated that he targeted leftwing activists and victims rather than focusing his investigation on armed white supremacists. The officer, Donovan Ayres, 12-year-veteran of the California highway patrol, admitted he pursued information on the political affiliations and online activity of leftwing activists and victims. He testified Tuesday as a key witness in the state's ongoing case against three anti-fascist activists charged with assault and "rioting" during a brawl between neo-Nazis and counter protesters at the state Capitol in June 2016. Ayres was tasked with investigating the violence that erupted at the event, including the stabbing and beating of at least eight anti-fascist protesters. But his testimony in a packed courtroom earlier this week, along with hundreds of pages of reports he wrote, have revealed the officer's acquiescence to the neo-Nazis and the way he repeatedly advocated they not face any criminal consequences."

Germany extradites 'laser man' killer John Ausonius to Sweden
"Germany has extradited back to Sweden a convicted killer known as "the laser man" for using a precision-scope rifle to target immigrants. John Ausonius, 65, a Swedish far-right extremist, has been found guilty of murder in both countries, most recently receiving a life term in Germany in February last year that was upheld on appeal in November. He previously received a life sentence in Sweden for a six-month shooting spree in 1991-92. Using the laser-scoped rifle, he killed a 34-year-old Iranian man and wounded 10 other people from countries including Brazil, Greece, Syria and Zimbabwe. In a sign of Ausonius's notoriety, the Norwegian white supremacist mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik mentioned the "laser man" as a figure who shared the same goals during his own trial."

Police nab man in Queens E-train hate attack
" First came a friendly kiss from a friend, followed by a savage sucker-punch from a gay-bashing goon. The 20-year-old victim of a brutal Nov. 20 assault aboard an E train in Queens told the Daily News how quickly things morphed from fun-loving to hate-fueled when she and her best friend crossed paths with a madman during a rush-hour subway ride. The victim said her friend "gave me a kiss on the cheek while she was making a Snapchat" — an innocent start to a nightmare that left her with a spinal fracture. Though the peck was platonic, police say suspect Allssheed Allah flew into a rage at the sight. "

A man attacked a Latino father and son outside a Utah tire shop. Because of 'shortcoming' in state code, prosecutors can't consider it a hate crime.
"A man accused of beating a Latino father and son outside their Salt Lake City tire shop while yelling about how he wanted to kill a Mexican was charged Friday — but he does not face any enhancements for a hate crime. "Although we want to pat ourselves on the back and say we have a hate crime statute, it's really not enforceable," said Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill, whose office made the determination on how to prosecute the case. Alan Dale Covington, 50, faces two felony counts of aggravated assault, as well as three weapon and drug charges. According to Utah code, only misdemeanor assaults can be enhanced as hate crimes. "It's only applicable to the lower offenses and not the more serious," Gill added. "That's a shortcoming." "

Militia men convicted of bomb plot try to bar Somali videos
"WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Attorneys for three Kansas militia members convicted of plotting to bomb a mosque and apartment complex housing Somali immigrants in a western Kansas meatpacking town have asked the court to bar at sentencing any victim impact statements, arguing no one was actually hurt in the plot. Federal prosecutors have countered that the men are trying to "minimize their actions and de-personalize their crimes." They say that "runs directly afoul" of the Crime Victims' Rights Act. "Despite the overwhelming evidence that led a jury to find beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendants conspired to commit a hate-motived mass murder, the defendants now make the extraordinary claim that the targets of their plot — the defendants' would-be murder victims — are not in fact 'victims' and should not be heard at sentencing," prosecutors said Tuesday in a filing."
