Members of the Domestic Terrorist NSM White Supremist group "Comrades Of Our Racial Struggle - COORS Family Skins" and of the outlaw motorcycle gang "Vagos Motorcycle Club" were arrested for attacks on Hemet Police (being shot at), their police cars booby trapped, police cars torched and the police gang task force attacked. Hemet has been under siege by Urban Terrorism. These attacks have been taking place since December, 2009.
Yesterday, Nicholas John Smit was arrested. He is suspected of attempting to murder a police officer and of building a potentially deadly booby trap. Steven Hansen, a convicted arsonist, was arrested on a parole violation.
Fueled by anger over the economy, immigration and the election of President Barack Obama, white supremacists have been increasing in number in the Inland region and throughout California during the past year, local and national experts say.
In May, Officials in Hemet, CA, charged a member of a known skinhead group in connection with several similar booby trapping incidents targeting local law enforcement that led to a series of raids and 23 arrests. On April 20, law enforcement officials raided 35 homes in Hemet and the surrounding San Jacinto Valley, arresting 23 people on suspected parole, weapons and narcotics violations. In May, the police charged one man, Patrick Nugent Jr., with six felonies, including membership in a known skinhead group, Comrades Of Our Racial Struggle - C.O.O.R.S. Family Skins, and for possessing a zip gun similar to one used in an attempted attack against local law enforcement. Nugent was arrested and his weapons were found during the April 20 sweep by Hemet police investigating a rash of attacks aimed at the Police and their gang task force.During the sweep, officers arrested 23 people on parole, weapons and drug violations. In February, an officer narrowly missed being killed when he opened the front gate of the gang task force offices and a shot rang out. Investigators later found a zip gun in the gate that had been rigged to fire when the door opened.
Hemet police took notice of the C.O.O.R.S. gang last year following an August stabbing of another white supremacist who did not want to join the gang. Also, a Hispanic teenager was beaten into a coma in Hemet in November, 2008. Four members of the gang were charged with attacking the young Latino boy while screaming “White power,” according to Hemet police. All four were accused of attacking the boy to benefit the C.O.O.R.S. Family Skins gang by instilling fear into the Latino community, police said. The boy was beaten and unconscious. He was placed on a ventilator and remained in a coma for four months.
On the group’s Web site, which was taken down after the earlier arrests, the organization professed, “We hate with pure virtuous hatred, anything or anyone that threatens Our way of life or attempts to stand in the way of Our Racial preservation.”
Additionally, some of the arrested gang members also belonged to the Vagos Motorcycle Club. According to Captain Walter Meyer of the Riverside County Sheriffs Department, the Vagos Motorcycle Club is California’s largest motorcycle gang. Known for violence, the gang specializes in the sale of methamphetamine that includes the tri-state area of Arizona, Nevada and Utah. In March About 30 members of the Vagos, were arrested in Riverside County following a sting operation that involved the manufacturing, sale and distribution of methamphetamine in the aforementioned tri-state area. The Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the California Attorney General have named the Vagos as an outlaw motorcycle club, claiming that they are involved in criminal activities such as producing, transporting and distributing methamphetamine and marijuana, as well as assault, extortion, insurance fraud, money laundering, murder, vehicle theft, witness intimidation and weapons violations. The Vagos have approximately 600 members among 24 chapters located in the states of Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and three chapters located in Mexico. Two hundred members are in Riverside County, where the gang was started in the late 1960s.
It is mind boggling to me that the national media is not talking about this story and others like it. Like the Hutaree Militia, COORS Family Skins, Vagos and other Hate Groups (e.g.: KKK, Stormfront, Neo Nazi NSMs, White Supremists, etc.) are posing a severe domestic terrorist threat to the police, to the government, to Latinos, minorities and to our society as a whole. These groups are infiltrating the Tea Parties. These are REAL Threats to our National Safety. They are not FAKE threats as those described by Jan (La Bruja) Brewer. These are REAL. They are Dangerous. They are growing. The spotlight and the terror alerts need to be on THEM, the REAL THREAT to America as we know it.
