Where did you see the paper taking sides? Did you read the story? The only place immigrants are mentioned were in the headline. That is exactly what it was. An immigration rally. Tree groups. One for, one against and one heckling the ones against. So where axactly did you see the paper taking sides? Doesn't even tell you which side each group involved in the "dispute" belong to.

Read the article, the reporters are suposto find and listing to both sied of the story, but instead they only listined to one, the one the cops, "that are lead by the mayor of Morristown, who is a racist" the cops explained what happened not because they where there but in the words of the "Americans" explained it to them. There is o follow up article, not regards to the accused, the media did not even take the time to hear both sides of the story?? I'm not saying they didn't do it, is just that I believe the media should be neutral and report the facts, as per 2 sides not just one????
it is an immigrant rally... but like I said before, we all are.... read up on American History!!!!

I read the report. I still don't see what you are talking, kind off, about.
Yes dahling, we are all immigrants. LEGAL immigrants. The ones that had to wait months, or years to get a visa, go through the grinder to be appoved, and some body had to guarantee to be responsible for them the first five years of their stay here. Are those immigrants you are talking about?

Wherever neo-Nazis go, injustice follows. Morristown on Saturday was no different.

After the July 28, 2007 anti-immigrant rally in Morristown, NJ, two neo-Nazis attacked antifascists behind town hall. The neo-Nazis, 40-year old Frederick K. Williams ("Erick_K_W" on Stormfront) and Annette Williams of North Bergen, NJ, jumped from their pick-up truck armed with baseball bats and knives and assaulted pro-immigrant counter-protesters.

After taunting the anti-racist activists who had outed them earlier at the rally itself, Williams and his wife stopped their car, exited the vehicle and pulled a knife on the activists. He lunged at them but was quickly disarmed and his knife fell to the pavement. A local resident saw the fight between the older couple and the younger activists and joined in to support the neo-Nazis, shouting obscenities and dragging one activist who had just been standing there to the ground. Williams then pulled out a baseball bat from the rear bed of his pick up truck and began attacking the anti-racists with it.

By this point, more antifascists began rushing to the scene. Williams got back in his truck and tried to flee, but not before other activists blocked his Ford pick up from leaving. Moments later, police rushed in, found Williams' weapon in the back of his pickup and confiscated it.

Staying true to their fear of authority figures, the Williams' story quickly changed, telling police they were the victims of an unprovoked assault, but other witnesses at the scene and a video of the attack prove otherwise.

Yes I did. There are allways two pages to every sheet of paper. Let me show you the other side, the one "moristown" did not mentioned.
The following is from a neutral eyewitness acount, Donald Eberhard, from today's Daily Record:
"As I approached the crowd along the sidewalk, I was troubled by what I saw and heard. The immigrands and their supporters were enthusiastically waving the Communist flag. There was not one American flag in sight. I heard chanting of "Nazi" "racist" and "fasist" directed toward the police and the crowd at town hall (anti-immigration crowd). There were many signs echoing the same rhetoric. I heard chanting and catcalls during the playing of the "Start Spangled Banner"." I heard the same when silence was requested to honor our troops. Is this the way immigrands, both legal and illegal want to be portrayed?"
Are those the punks that moristown calls anticomunist and antinazis? Does anybody blame the Mayor for calling them Communists and nazis? Are you going to tell me that it was tha anti-immigration rally's fault that it cost $18,000 for the police presense?
Why did the immigrants had to congregate across the street from the anti-immigrants, taunted them and did not choose another plase or day, if they were not looking for a fight?
Yes darling. I read the news. BOTH SIDES OF THEM.

The anti-immigration rally had a permmit for the city hall meeting. The pro-immigrants had one for the church. What were the po-immigrant crowd doing across the street from the legal anti-immigration site? Were the police that dump to give them a permmit, or, more likely, went without one? And if yes, why were they allowed to stay, and heckle the others? Is the police afraid to touch them, or would they rather make that extra OT money and the hell with a few fights?

tinker.. you are so of topic here... i have been talking about the article itself... your talking about the rally in general... I don't agree with a lot of things but I also agree with a lot of them... what I was bothered by was the article on the 3 charged in the attack, when in actuallity, the couple attacked the immigranst not the other way around, and the newspapers took side only writing what the police said, which is what the couple said happened and that was it....hellooooo..

Don't yell, I can hearyou. We must have been reading two different articles. The newspaper article states, and my understanding is, that the men arested had attended the anti-immigration rally, were white, had irish sounding names and were all from New York city, I believe. Hardly the MO of immigrants. I don't know what the couple was and I don't know how the fight started, but they sure got the worst of it. And if the couple first attacked four, I believe, young men, well then they had more balls than brains. I still don't know which side you think the article wronged, but if you refering to the immigrands, you are absolutely right. They left out all the nasty things they said and did. I'll have to complain to the editor about that.
