Idaho police arrested 31 members of a group called Patriot Front after being found in a U-Haul vehicle near an LGBTQ Pride event in Coeur d’Alene on Saturday.
The arrests followed a call to police reporting a group of men carrying shields and dressed in military clothing, according to Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Lee White.
The group reportedly wore shirts with Patriot Front logos, an organization that the Associated Press has described as a “white supremacist group.” Its website states, “Our people, born to this nation of our European race, must reforge themselves as a new collective capable of asserting our right to cultural independence.” . . .
“The group’s founder, Thomas Ryan Rousseau, was among those arrested, according to jail records. Like the others, Rousseau was arrested on a charge of criminal conspiracy to riot, a misdemeanor. The arrestees were held on $300 bail,” the report added. (Read more from “Police Arrest 31 Patriot Front Members Near LGBTQ Pride Event” HERE)
