The Right, United


Unite the Right was the biggest gathering of white supremacists in decades. Naturally, when Nazis gather, Nazis do violence. Four of these men were arrested for the brutal gang beatdown of Deandre Harris. Some were charged for his unnecessary deployment of a chemical agent during a minor scuffle in which his side outnumbered the other 10 to 1. And most brutally, James Fields is facing multiple life sentences–or even death–for his alleged terroristic vehicle attack. The Right is uniting in prison.
