New Jersey Neo-Nazis Arrested in Assaults on Middle Easterners

Federal authorities in New Jersey are ending 2012 with the arrests of two accused white supremacists who allegedly went on a hate-filled assault spree last New Year’s Eve.

Christopher Ising, 31, a reported member of the Atlantic City Skins from Waretown, N.J., was arrested today by FBI agents on an indictment charging him with conspiracy and commission of a hate crime assault. Those laws are contained in the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, passed by Congress in 2009.

Michal Gunar, 27, of East Windsor, N.J., also faces the same federal charges. He is an alleged member of another New Jersey-based white supremacist group known as the Aryan Terror Brigade, the FBI said in announcing the arrests.

The arrests grew out of a New Year’s Eve party last year in East Brunswick, N.J., where Ising hosted a “meet and greet” gathering for white supremacists, FBI officials said.

A half hour before the New Year rang in, Ising and Gunar drove to an apartment complex in Sayreville, N.J., “with the express purpose of assaulting random, non-Caucasian individuals,” court documents allege.

“While at the complex, the defendants located and attacked three Middle Eastern men, shouting anti-Arab slurs, brandishing a knife, utilizing brass knuckles, and injuring two of the victims,” the documents say.

Further details were not provided about the victims’ identities or the extent of their injuries.

If convicted in U.S. District Court, the two defendants face substantial prison terms, depending in part on their prior criminal records, which haven’t yet been publicly disclosed.

    Ising pleaded guilty to an assault charge in 1999 and to another one in 2002. In the 1999 case, he apparently was initially charged with attempted murder after he allegedly beat someone severely with a crowbar. He was 17 at the time.

    Every time I read that the FBI has gone in and removed this sort of thing off of our streets and out of our communities I get a warm and fuzzy feeling all over. This is just beautiful.

    I can’t wait for them to come here and remove the so called white supremacists who appear to have infiltrated and taken a strong hold in our area as well.

    Yes I like to call the group out here the Bigot Brigade.

    FBI, please get more of these monsters off of our streets.
