19 de octubre de 2017, 17:04Washington, Oct 19 (Prensa latina) Hundreds of people gathered today on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville to oppose white supremacist Richard Spencer, who tours US institutes of higher studies to spread his racist message.

Tenbrink told reporters on camera that he admired Spencer - who speaks in favor of creating a white "ethno state" - because he was "not afraid to say the things that no one else will". Tenbrink fired one shot, which hit a nearby building.

All three men are in custody, having been arrested by an off-duty Alachua Sheriff's officer just hours later. The three then allegedly got back into their Jeep and fled.

The three suspects were later caught after the victim had memorized their Jeep's license plate and alerted authorities. Tenbrink, who was accused of firing the weapon, has a felony record and was also charged with illegal possession of a firearm. William Fears and Colton Fears each are held on $1 million bond.

The three suspects then exited the vehicle and began yelling death threats.

After officers read Tenbrink his Miranda rights, he admitted he was the shooter.

"I guarantee that wherever I am, whatever circumstances may arise, the Alt-Right shall enjoy the right to free speech", Bristow said Sunday.

'Us coming in and saying we're taking over your town, we're starting to push back, we're starting to want to intimidate back.

"The university has deemed that it is not presently able to accommodate Mr. [Cameron] Padgett's request to rent space at the university due to substantial risk to public safety, as well as material and substantial disruption to the work and discipline of the university", a lawyer representing Ohio State said in a letter to an attorney representing Spencer's associates and obtained by the Associated Press. And even after Spencer's "Unite the Right" rally on a Virginia campus in August devolved into violence and left a woman dead, UF administrators could not prevent his visit, they could only prepare for it. "He's trying to make it, normalize the idea for white people to have an identity, to advocate for their own interests and to advocate for our own existence", Fears said.
