In New York City, police plan to charge nine members of the white supremacist group “Proud Boys” on counts of rioting and assault after they violently attacked people on a Manhattan street on Friday night. The NYPD announced the charges on Monday following public outcry after videos showed dozens of members of the group physically assaulting anti-fascist protesters after attending a talk by leader Gavin McInnes at the nearby Metropolitan Republican Club. Three people protesting the Proud Boys also face charges.
