Neo-Nazis March in Toledo Again

A Neo-Nazi group that demonstrated in Toledo in October returned to the same neighborhood this Saturday to protest the police's handling of the event. In October, demonstrators against the Neo-Nazis began rioting which led to local vandalism and many arrests. Fortunately the protest this Saturday only brought out 100 counter-demonstrators in the cold winter weather. According to the group, the original October demonstration was organized by Neo-Nazis because of increased crime in a neighborhood that has seen a recent influx of African-Americans. Security checkpoints were set up by the City of Toledo to ensure safety in the demonstrating area that was formed by court order.
