Three male white supremacists near Gainesville, Florida have been charged with the attempted murder of protesters who were there to object to the speech of notorious racist Richard Spencer at the University of Florida. Two of the perpetrators, William Fears, 30, and Colton Fears, 28, are brothers. Allegedly, the two Fears brothers strongly urged the third member of their party, Tyler Tenbrink, to "shoot and kill" the protesters. According to The Huffington Post on Friday, the Fears brothers yelled out to the protesters, “I’m going to f**** kill you." And then, according to reports, the Fears brothers then yelled out to Tenbrink, "Kill them" and then yelled, "Shoot them!"

Allegedly, Tenbrink then fired a single round, missing the protesters and instead hit the building behind them.

The three men were arrested by an off-duty Sheriffs' deputy about 20 miles north of Gainesville and charged with attempted murder. The arrest of the trio comes on the heels of the prosecution of a gang of white supremacists by a Texas court a couple of months ago.

Bond for the subjects

The Fears brothers are being held at the Alucha County Jail on $1 million bond. Tenbrik, who admitted to being the shooter, is being held on a $3 million bond. The subjects will have to come up with a minimum of 10 percent of their bond amounts to make bail and will have to provide proof of their ability to come up with the additional 90 percent through a combination of titles to property, stocks, bonds, and co-signers.

Needless to say, this is a tall order for anyone, especially for individuals under 35 or 40 years of age.

The Protection Squadron

Colton Fears was interviewed shortly before Spencer's speech. Fears was asked about the decal on his shirt. He described it as "an SS thing," meaning "Schutzstaffel," or the N*zi Protection Squadron.

White supremacist groups such as this one have been popping up like weeds in the age of Trump. President Trump did not condemn such groups until August of 2017, and most observers questioned the sincerity of his condemnation.

The outcome of the era of Trump

What the ultimate outcome of this scenario will be remains to be seen.

How, when and where Donald Trump will assume his role as the moral leader of the nation and provide genuine, insightful leadership against any and all forms of white supremacy, racism, fascism and N*zi Protection Squadrons, is anyone's guess. But until he does so, more attacks by white supremacist groups are likely and that is one very grim reality of the era of Trump.
