Three men charged with attempted murder of protesters at Florida white supremacist speech

Three men were arrested and charged with attempted homicide after confronting and firing toward protesters outside of a white nationalist's speech at the University of Florida, police said Friday. 
Supporters of Richard Spencer, the white supremacist who gave a highly controversial speech at the university on Thursday, allegedly confronted protesters in a silver Jeep near a bus stop outside of the event. 

Tyler Tenbrink, 28, reportedly came out of the vehicle wielding a gun after one of the protesters hit the Jeep with a baton. 

Two others — Colton Fears, 28, and his brother William Fears, 30 — followed Tenbrink out of the vehicle, displaying Nazi salutes and urging him to "shoot them" and "kill them," according to an arrest report from the Alachua County Sheriff's Department.

Ohio State denies request to have Richard Spencer speak on campus

“The university has deemed that it is not presently able to accommodate Mr. [Cameron] Padgett’s request to rent space at the university due to substantial risk to public safety, as well as material and substantial disruption to the work and discipline of the university,” a lawyer representing Ohio State said in a letter to an attorney representing Spencer’s associates and obtained by The Guardian.


Earlier Friday, a lawyer for Spencer said he would file a federal lawsuit against the university if it denied a request for Spencer to speak on campus.


This is the new normal. Disgusted yet?
