Intersection: Richard Spencer And Free Speech On College Campuses

Posted October 23, 2017

Tenbrink told the Sun that he traveled to Gainesville from Houston to see Spencer's speech.

Three men who are reportedly supporters of white nationalist Richard Spencer were arrested on Thursday in connection to an incident where a shot was sacked, deputies said. The three were charged with attempted murder. The men at the center of the violence were Tyler Eugene Tenbrink, and Colton Gene Fears, both 28 and Colton's brother, 30-year-old William Henry Fears.

Time reports that after the Spencer speech at U.F. on Thursday afternoon, those white supremacists taunted a group of people at a bus stop, yelling "Heil Hitler" and the like. Tenbrink is being held on a $3 million bail while the brothers' bails are $1 million each.

Just over an hour after his speech ended, three of Mr. Spencer's followers stopped their auto in front of a group of anti-racism protesters at a bus stop, police said in a statement.

Subsequently, Tenbrink fired one shot at the crowd and missed, hitting a business behind the victims and the three men got back into their vehicle and left the scene.

The three suspects were later caught after the victim had memorized their Jeep's license plate and alerted authorities. Tenbrink was also charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon, stemming from an arrest in 2009 for aggravated kidnapping of a female acquaintance in Texas. Tenbrink got out of the auto with a handgun while William Fears and Colton Fears yelled, "I'm going to f--ing kill you", and "Shoot them".

United Kingdom interest rates set to rise as inflation hits 3 percent
The 15% or so drop in the pound against a range of currencies has ratcheted up the cost of imported goods such as food and energy. However, the British pound remained lower against the dollar despite confirmation of Carney's view on inflation.

Just before 9 off-duty Alachua County Sheriff's deputy who had worked the Spencer event earlier saw the men's vehicle. The investigation remains ongoing, Tobias said.

William Fears said "most of everything" he hears from Spencer resonates with him.

'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.

UF President W. Kent Fuchs has denounced Spencer, but as a public university the school is required to rent space to speakers regardless of their message.

No one was injured in the shooting after the Gainesville speech, which drew hundreds of protesters and a smaller group of Spencer fans, along with a massive deployment of police trying to prevent a repeat of the street violence that marked a Spencer-related rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August, police said. They are accused of having fired a shot at protesters for absolutely no reason.
