Patriot Front Arrested in Coeur d’Alene

A look at Coeur d’Alene Police arresting the Patriot Front members.

Only one person at this time appears to be from Idaho. Although, we're all concerned that this incident will tarnish Idaho's reputation for welcoming newcomers.

How was the plot foiled?

A good sanitarian saw the group of men get into the Uhaul and called the police.  The police responded by pulling over the Uhaul arresting all 31 khaki wearing individuals.   The Pride event went on without incident.  We had reported that a group of satanists had planned to attend the event to perform unbaptisms. However, they did not show up to the event.

What's Next?

The 31 individuals will be charged and have their day in court.  Some folks have suggested that their defense will be that they caused no problems and their first amendment rights were violated. The governor and other elected officials took to social media to share their thoughts on the matter.


Other folks shared their views on the incident.
