Charlottesville/ Unite The Right Prison Sentences Handed Down

Some Justice - Heather Heyer's murder trial not underway yet, but other bigots are going to prison.

Jacob Scott Goodwin, Alex Michael Ramos sentenced to state prison in beating of DeAndre Harris
Two men with neo-Nazi and militia ties were sentenced Thursday to state prison for taking part in a gang assault of a man in a Charlottesville parking garage during the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in 2017.

Jacob Scott Goodwin, a 24-year-old neo-Nazi sympathizer from Ward, Arkansas, received an eight-year prison sentence, with two more years suspended for his role in the beating of 21-year-old DeAndre Harris, who was prone on the ground during much of the attack.

In a separate hearing, Charlottesville Circuit Judge Richard Moore handed down a six-year sentence for 34-year-old Alex Michael Ramos of Jackson, Georgia. Ramos, a onetime member of a militia group called the Georgia Security Force III%, ran from across a street to kick and stomp on Harris as the beating went on. Ramos also faces three years of probation that could be converted to more prison time if he violates the terms of the supervised release.

“This is one of the most brutal attacks our community has wrestled with,” said prosecutor Nina Antony.

Klan leader Richard Preston sentenced to four years in prison for firing gun at ‘Unite the Right’

It was a short goodbye for what will be a relatively long absence.

A judge in Charlottesville, Virginia, sentenced the 53-year-old Preston on Tuesday to four years in prison with another four years suspended for firing a gun into a crowd during the “Unite the Right” rally of Aug. 12, 2017. The prison sentence handed down by Charlottesville Circuit Judge Richard Moore marked the first felony sentence stemming from the deadly rally, which saw the downtown area of the city of 48,000 overrun by neo-Nazis, racists, white supremacists and others on that deadly weekend.

Preston pleaded no contest to firing a shot during the rally that did not hit anyone.

“It was just pure belligerence,” Moore said.

Initial claim of self-defense

Preston, a Baltimore, Maryland, resident, is the Imperial Wizard of the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, although that affiliation went unmentioned during the nearly 40-minute hearing. In a video filmed by the ACLU of Virginia, Preston is seen firing a pistol at counter-protesters.

Sam Nunberg and Corey Lewandowski argue over who's the worst - Ahh Trump's " best people"

Sam Nunberg and Corey Lewandowski Clash Over Who’s the Bigger Drunk

God, grant me the serenity, to accept… more petty infighting between Sam Nunberg and Corey Lewandowski.
On Tuesday morning, Lewandowski appeared on a conservative radio show on Virginia’s WHKT to accuse Nunberg of “being intoxicated” on MSNBC.
Lewandowki was most likely referring to his rival’s media meltdown this past March, when Nunberg freewheeled between cable news interviews to insult Special Counsel Robert Mueller and accuse his former Trump campaign coworkers of being Russian operatives.

These remarks did not sit well with Nunberg, who took to Twitter shortly after the radio attack to call Lewandowski a “white trash scumbag.
Reached by the Observer for comment, Nunberg denied once again that he was intoxicated during the talk-show blitz back in March, but did admit to drinking the night before. In an extended rant, he also accused Lewandowski of drunkenness throughout the 2016 election.

“[Lewandowski] wants to talk about me being inebriated? He fell asleep piss drunk at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. And that’s for the public to see,” Nunberg told the Observer. “During the campaign they found him wandering around one day, late afternoon, early night, and he was passed out, pissed drunk.

“This is the highlight of his life,” continued the former Trump aide. “He’s in his 40s. You’ll be hearing about me when I’m in my 50s and 60s. He’ll be in some dive fucking bar in New Hampshire talking about the good old days.
Minutes later, Lewandowski shot back in an email to the Observer. “Did Sam really accuse someone else of drinking too much? That’s rich.”
