Idaho police said they've received death threats since arresting 31 men affiliated with white nationalist group Patriot Front near an annual LGBTQ+ event over the weekend.

Officers have also received threats of doxxing, a practice in which someone publishes personal information such as phone numbers or addresses online, White said.

The majority of the threats being made appear to be from outside the Coeur d’Alene community, according to the chief.

Responding officers stopped the vehicle about 10 minutes later and 31 people in "similar attire" were arrested, White previously said.

"Since myself and other members of my agency have been receiving threats, including death threats, I think it appropriate to withhold that person's information," White said.

Police in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho detain people pulled on June 11, from a U-Haul truck near the city's Pride celebration.

Additional staff were allocated to the Pride event, but there was no intelligence specific to the Patriot Front group, White said. »

The fund — which, again, did not actually exist — raised $250 million, most of which did not go to election litigation, but to Trump’s newly created Save America PAC. »

Authored by

BERLIN (AP) — The German government is setting in motion plans to legalize the sale of cannabis for recreational purposes, aiming to have legislation ready later this year.

The pledge to legalize controlled sales of cannabis to adults in licensed shops is one of a series of reforms outlined in last year’s coalition deal between the three socially liberal parties that make up Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government.

“Like many others, I have worked for years toward us in Germany finally ending the criminalization of cannabis consumers and beginning a modern and health-oriented cannabis policy,” he said in a statement. »
