Mr. Miller noted that the law in New York under the law has strict rules restricting their investigations of political groups. But he added: “Violence is violence.”
Demonstrators protested the club’s decision to invite McInnes too much last week, placing threatening phone calls to the club and requiring the event to be terminated, club president Deborah Coughlin said. Early in the morning, vandalism-gripped anti-fascist graffiti glued to the club’s headquarters on 83th Street Street, the locks closed with caulk and threw bricks through the windows, police said.
The nominee was nominated for celebrating the 1
960 murder of a Japanese socialist by an ultranationalist killer, but Mr. McInnes pepped it with mocking attacks against leftists, lesbians and people in the Black Life Matter movement.
After the speech was over, McInne’s club left and a contigent of proud boys and their coworkers led down Park Avenue, according to the police. A small group of masked protesters doubled back on Lexington Avenue to catch them, police said. The opposite groups came face to face on East 82nd Street, where the match began.
The police said the violence began after one of the leftist demonstrators threw a plastic bottle on the proud boys who brought members to right groups like 211 Bootboys and Batalion 49.
It is still unclear by a surveillance camera’s videotape of Melee as the police released if the bottle was thrown before or after the proud boys rushed the anti-fascist protesters.
At night in the noise, the police arrested three protesters in a separate incident and accused them of abuse. Today, the police department met criticism for not arrested any Proud Boys members. Then police officers announced that they were looking for nine people who were affiliated with the group, as well as three anti-fascist protesters.
