One Peoples Project: Alex Linder arrested
KNOXVILLE, TN - Alex Linder of Vanguard News Network participated in a rally organized on his website's forum to protest black crime. Now it is he being called a criminal.
According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Linder was arrested 3 PM Saturday at the start of the protest when he refused to comply with police instructions. He was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, assault on a police officer and destruction of property. According to initial reports he was thrown to the ground and cuffed before being able to speak. Reportedly, the destruction of property charge comes from the lens of a camera around the neck of an officer arresting him being broken.
Linder, who once worked at CNN as a researcher for the Evans and Novak program as well as for the conservative magazine American Spectator, joined less than 30 of his fellow boneheads at the old Knox County Courthouse on Main Street to protest what he considered the media ignoring the brutal January 6 deaths of University of Tennessee students of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, allegedly at the hands of five African Americans.
