Sheriff’s office releases names and pics of all Patriot Front members arrested at Idaho Pride event

The names and photos of all 31 members of the white nationalist group Patriot Front who were arrested at a northern Idaho Pride event, The Spokesman-Review reports.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office released information Sunday, a day after the Coeur d’Alene police chief said the members were en route to the Pride in the Park event with riot gear, a smoke grenade, and paperwork police say resembled an operations plan. The Anti-Defamation League calls Patriot Front a white nationalist group with branches across the country that specializes in vandalism, racist propaganda, and “flash demonstrations” meant to intimidate minorities.

From the Associated Press:

Among those booked into jail on misdemeanor charges of conspiracy to riot was Thomas Ryan Rousseau of Grapevine, Texas, who has been identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as the 23-year-old who founded the group after the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017. No attorney was immediately listed for him and phone numbers associated with him went unanswered Sunday.

Also among the arrestees was Mitchell F. Wagner, 24, of Florissant, Missouri, who was previously charged with defacing a mural of famous Black Americans on a college campus in St. Louis last year.
