DeAndre Harris Charged After Charlottesville Attack
This is some bull isht.
After he was brutally beaten by white supremacists, the 20-year-old whose bloodied pictures shocked the world is now facing charges himself. DeAndre Harris launched a GoFundMe after video showed him being cornered and attacked in a Charlottesville parking garage by white supremacists. The beating resulted in him having spinal injuries and needed 10 stitches in his scalp.
Now, however, he’s been arrested and charged with felony unlawful wounding after “southern nationalist” (see: SUPREMACIST) Attorney Harold Ray Crews reported that he was injured by Harris in the incident.
Harris’ attorney has since spoken out and he’s denouncing the charge that came from Crews and a “hate group” that he’s a runs a chapter of.
“S. Lee Merritt, denounced the charge and said it was orchestrated by the League of the South, an organization labeled by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. Crews, who runs the group’s North Carolina chapter, was not injured “in any way” by Harris, Merritt said.
“We find it highly offensive and upsetting,” Merritt said, “but what’s more jarring is that he’s been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him.””
We pray that this charge gets dropped, we’ll continue to follow this story.
