As information is still flooding in much of this publishing may be preliminary however, the information is from members who were “boots on the ground” and on scene.
While the event seems to have been started in another county with a confederate flag being flown near an all-black school, the conditions deteriorated in Pittsboro, NC to the point the sheriff’s department was given a stand-down order. We’re currently investigating the source of this order.
Things got really out of hand as an unidentified elderly male was cornered between two groups (or factions) of Antifa. Things got violent and he was knocked to the ground. The elderly male was armed and did not draw his firearm. The attacker has been identified as one, Josh Mascharka.
During the event, a few members of III% United Patriots saw an Antifa member take off his boot in order to assault the man with it, and was promptly tackled. We are currently in possession of this boot still.
We will be trying to keep people informed on this matter as it develops and we get more information.
