Dozens ARRESTED In Riot Plot – Suspects Named!
(UnitedVoice.com) – June is Pride Month for the LGBTQ+ community, and cities are holding events across the country. Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was holding an event on Saturday, June 11, when people around town noticed a group that looked like an army. Police officers investigated and stopped a possible domestic terror attack.
After receiving tips, police officers pulled a U-haul over and searched it. They found 31 masked men dressed in khakis, blue shirts, and beige hats; some had long white undershirts covering their arms. The men were reportedly members of the Patriot Front, allegedly a White supremacist group. A search of the moving truck also yielded a smoke grenade, shin guards, a collection of shields, and documents that included an “operations plan” detailing their intentions.
Officers arrested them on charges of conspiring to riot.
These are the faces and names of the members of the neo-nazi cult Patriot Front who were arrested yesterday in Idaho for conspiring to riot at a Pride event.

During a press conference on Monday, Coeur d’Alene Police Chief Lee White told reporters the department has received about 150 calls about the arrests, and roughly half of those calls were made anonymously by people from as far away as Norway. Some callers threatened authorities for arresting the alleged White supremacists. The department is also dealing with threats to doxx police officers or publish their information online.
The FBI is now assisting the department in the investigation. The men could face additional charges.
