Toledo, Ohio saw a planned protest erupt in violence today by residents hostile to the protestors. Bill White, spokesman for the group billing itself as "America's Nazi Party," blames police for detouring their march past a counter-demonstration.
Residents had been pelting the Nazis with bottles and rocks, but turned their rage on the police and surrounding community. Windows in cars and buildings were smashed as looting commenced. When this began, the Nazis retreated to their headquarters.
"The crowd was very...extremely agitated at the police... for [making arrests in] the community when they should be doing this to the Nazis," photographer Brian Jagodzinski said. The Nazis marched for claims of black gangs bothering white residents.
