FLORIDA: Three Nazis Arrested For Attempted Murder In Shooting After Richard Spencer’s Speech [VIDEO]

Gainesville’s CBS affiliate reports:

Three men were arrested for shooting, and threatening a group of protesters with Hitler chants, following white supremacist Richard Spencer’s speech. The Gainesville Police Department was alerted to a silver Jeep arguing with a group of protesters near a bus stop at 5:30 p.m. Tyler Tenbrink, 28, William Fears, 30, and Colton Fears, 28, began threatening the protesters with Nazi chants and salutes to Hitler.

According to GPD, the altercation became increasingly hostile and Tenbrink fired a single shot at the group. The bullet missed the protesters and struck a nearby building. The men then fled the scene in the jeep. One of the protesters managed to see the vehicle tag number and immediately reported it to police.

All three men are currently in the Alachua County Jail on charges of attempted homicide. Tenbrink is a convicted felon, and faces additional charges of possession of a firearm by convicted felon. The Fears brothers are under $1 million bond, and Tenbrink under a $3 million bond.

One of the men had been interviewed by local news before the incident. All three reside in Texas.


  • This must be what it felt like to be a Roman citizen as the Empire was falling into chaos and ruin.

    • Adam King

      Except they didn’t have the in-your-face internet. They experienced every problem as local, with disturbing rumors from far-off places. And it all happened very slowly, with local power shifts and adjustments happening piecemeal.

      • Lars Littlefield

        Like time through the hour glass . . . . .

  • Tor

    Another Nazi convicted felon. Not surprised. Again.

    • Lars Littlefield

      Winning!!! 🙂

    • Todd20036

      But… but… AnitFa does that. And BLM.

      Right??

  • Elagabalus

    I’m trying to decide if that look on the face of the guy on the left is the look of steely determination to look mean and tough or just plain terror at the sudden turn his life just took. I’m hoping for the latter.

    • Treant

      Terror. The bulging eyes definitely say “fear,” and it looks like the muscles in his face are pulled back a bit. Under the pudge.

      • Robincho

        And there’s also that little curl, “right in the middle of her forehead. When she is good, she is very, very good. And when she is bad, she is horrid.”…

        • clay

          I thought that saying ended, “she is better”?

    • Adam King

      I think it’s just dead-stupid confusion, covered over by an attempt to look unfeeling and “manly.”

      • joeyj1220

        I’m sure he was thinking… “b…b..but Trump can!”

        • FAEN

          He probably thinks Cheetos will pay for his defense.

          • Tom Furgas

            Or pardon him.

      • Tom Furgas

        KInd of a “deer-in-the-headlights” look. He probably is indeed terrified that he’s going to go to jail. I’m sure he doesn’t feel so tough and manly now, deep down inside.

      • Robincho

        Or, as Oscar said, “log-stupid.” It’s almost as if he could’ve foreseen the existence of the LCR…

    • Lars Littlefield

      He’s just reacting to the cattle prod the police stuffed in his ass.

      • Steverino

        That will be the look on his face every time he sits down on a cold stainless steel prison toilet.

        • Robincho

          Which, considering how full of shit he is, will be often…

    • Christopher

      My first thought…

      “The cop taking his picture must be black.”

      He looks like he’s trying to give the “intimidation face” to mask his fear.

    • Glenn

      Looks like they shared the same lipstick when getting ready for their glamour shots.

    • Sporkfighter

      He looks like a deer in the headlights; he’s too scared to notice he’s shit his pants.

    • ccc

      All three look creepy.

    • Jeffrey

      Oh that is sheer terror, usually accompanied by the distinct whiff of piss.

    • Dazzer

      All three pics look like the casting call for an incredibly low-budget amateur gay porn shoot.

    • clay

      They’re trying to look smarter than the silver jeep that did the arguing.

    • Grumpy Old Man

      Deer in the headlights? Followed by How did I get here? leading to Prison neck tattoos will look good on me.

    • HappyDance904

      They all have the same ears!! Are those Hitlears? bahahaha

  • Treant

    At least the one on the left looks slightly scared about how much trouble he’s in. The other two look blithely certain that the jury will be all white.

    • Tawreos

      I don’t know, the one in the middle looks like he might have been crying or is about to

      • Treant

        There’s always hope that he breaks down. 🙂

      • kareemachan

        Another whinging nazi. How normal.

      • Tom Furgas

        Yes, he does look teary-eyed. Poor Nazi!

    • JW Swift

      …and the frosted tips on the one on the left? Straight guys do that?

      • Treant

        No, straight guys don’t. So therefore…

      • Adam King

        They let their teenage cousin-girlfriends practice their beautician skills on them.

      • duncansdad

        Gay guys do that???

        • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

          Not since 1999. But if we’re talking rednecks here, they’re still wearing LA Gear shoes and B.U.M. Equipment hypercolor tees over acid washed jeans.

    • Halou

      The US president has their backs.

      • Todd20036

        They may think that, but BLOTUS doesn’t really give a shit.

    • greenmanTN

      The one on the right looks like he’s waiting for his synapse to fire.

      • Treant

        What synapse? 🙂

        • greenmanTN

          The single, lonely lonely synapse that keeps him breathing if he tries really hard.

        • clay

          Who doesn’t nap after a really big sin?

          • Grumpy Old Man

            I see what you did.

      • David L. Caster

        It’s the “I’m so screwed” look. They all look surprised by the situation they have gotten themselves into.

      • Paula

        I noticed you used the singular. Nicely done!

      • Stogiebear

        One really is the loneliest number,

    • Todd20036

      He did Nazi his life playing out like this

  • Ziad Baaklini

    Why are they so red?

    • Treant

      At some level, they’re embarrassed.

      It’s probably a slight sunburn plus those awful cheap pink fluorescent lights, but I’m ever-hopeful that they’re embarrassed by this shit at some deep level.

    • Adam King

      Sunblock is for elitists.

    • Megrim Twist

      Meth.

    • clay

      They haven’t been properly bled?

      I’ll get the JMG recap.

    • Lazycrockett

  • Halou

    Some of them, I’m sure, are good people.

    • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

      Very fine people.

  • Tatonka

    I have a ggg grandfather named William Fears who looked a lot like this guy. I just trolled my dad with a note suggesting that maybe he’s a relative.

    • Adam King

      What a fearful prospect.

      • Tatonka

        I come from 400 years of Virginia planters, unwarshed hillbillies, cotton farmers, southern baptist preachers, radical Richmond newspapermen, slavers, Scot-Irish pioneers, and one nineteenth century Alabama dentist. It’s skeletons all the way down, I’m afraid.

        • thatotherjean

          Your ancestors sound a lot like mine. None of them ever lived in Georgia, did they? I’ve been to a house that my great-grandmother lived in for a while in the 19th Century, that they called “the old Fears’ place.”

        • Oh, Parker

          We have ancestors with that name from Virginia as well. Our branch moved to Indiana. We might just be related too.

    • Robincho

      Tears for Fears? In my case, nope…

  • Judas Peckerwood

    Enjoy prison, fuckheads!

  • Lars Littlefield

    They are all so pink!

    • Adam King

      Maybe they’re concerned about breast cancer.

      • Lars Littlefield

        LOL!

      • Halou

        Their own or someone else’s?

    • Adam Stevens

      Just like pigs SHOULD be.

  • SoCalGal20

    Well Tyler sure is doing the grand tour. He was in Charlottesville, too.

  • Lizard

    IF ONLY THEY’D BEEN WARNED!

  • Texas. Sheesh. SMH

  • Adam Stevens

    Prepare for the weepy ‘jail’s hard y’all’ videos…

    • Halou

      Jail makes you gay according to the Housing and Urban Development Secretary.

      • Jay George

        I’m glad there’s hope for them then.

  • Professor Barnhardt
    • Treant

      I’d hope for a repeat, but in this administration the Republicans would be all over how valid and acceptable that firing of Mueller was.

      Again, I’ll spare you my opinion of Mueller and we’ll just assume, for the sake of this argument, that the investigation is actually valid.

  • Bad Tom

    Ethnostate?
    You all are going to lose your right to vote about anything.
    Good.

    • Oh, Parker

      Ethnostate sounds like a word SNL would come up with to use for an Allstate parody about white supremacists insurance policies. “Going to a rally tonight and accidentally set your hood on fire? Ethnostate has you covered.”

      • Grumpy Old Man

        +1000 upvotes.

  • BeaverTales

    Barely 30 years old and already in jail for gun charges with bonds of 1-3 million dollars. Yes, white supremacy and Naziism is a strategy for success.

    Hopefully being white won’t spare them the prison sentences they deserve. They ought to be in jail long enough to see a changed world by the time they are set free again, if ever.

    Enjoy prison, guys.

    • Christopher

      Something tells me these guys are already part of a Nazi prison gang.

      It’ll be like they’re going home.

      • Todd20036

        Maybe, but most people, when they go “home” don’t get gang raped in an initiation.

        • Robincho

          Only the lucky ones…

      • Sporkfighter

        When I go home, I walk over to the fridge and choose a beer or a glass of wine, depending on how i’m feeling. Their homecoming won’t be like that at all.

      • CottonBlimp

        I suspect it’s more that they roleplay being part of a Nazi gang with other basement dwellers on Stormfront. Now they get to enjoy the real thing!

  • coram nobis

    Mugshots make them look like they’ve been out in the sun. I thought they only came out at night.

      Great hat!

  • Taylor Bixler

    Did they have NRA [attempted] murder insurance?

    • Halou

      Should have waited until silencers were legalised, that way they could have hidden in the crowd and murdered whoever they wanted and nobody would know it.

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    Did I miss Trump’s condemnation tweet?

  • Gigi

    These guys are braindead, clueless sheeple. When William Fears was interviewed he said that Richard (Spencer) “has normalized the idea for whites to have an identity” but when he’s challenged by a reporter to explain what that means, he can’t. “What is the identity that you don’t have.” Crickets.

    • Lazycrockett

      This is what happens when mommy does buy em “Middle Earth Shadows of Mordor”.

    Can we call them roving gangs yet?

      Ooouuuuuccccchhhhh! Dude, see a doctor about that; it’s a bit beyond “sunburn.”

      • Tom Furgas

        I got burned like that once, in Florida. Best thing to do is soak towels in vinegar and apply them. That will draw much of the heat away.

        • thatotherjean

          I wish I had known that when I fell asleep at a pool when I was a kid, and blistered all to hell and gone. It was a very bad week until they healed.

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            And then all the other kids wanted to peel you, right?

          • thatotherjean

            You’ve had that kind of sunburn before, I see.

          • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

            I live near the beach, grew up here, burned to a crisp more than once here.
            However, when I worked at the Torrey Pines gliderport, I could hang glide on my lunch break. The brilliant white butts down there on the nude beach often belonged to military. We called ’em ‘cottontails.’ They were generally bright red by the end of the day. 😉

          • Cattleya1

            One blistering sunburn raises your lifetime chance of melanoma dramatically. Please get a dermatologist to strip you naked and check out your skin once a year. It can save your life.

          • thatotherjean

            Thanks for the warning. I’ll get it checked out. I knew about repeated bad sunburns, but I didn’t realize the odds went up so much from one.

          • Cattleya1

            It has been known for a while. Should come out in every preventive medicine history and physical.

    • Grumpy Old Man

      I think you could get a tan just standing next to him.

  • Lazycrockett

    During Spencer’s speech in FL yesterday he said something along the lines of a peaceful ethnic cleansing.

    • Halou

      There is no such thing, he knows it and his audience knows it, the only people who don’t are the president and the ratings-chasers in the nation’s media who will report that Spencer is a good, non-violent little boy.

    • RoFaWh

      The amusing[*] thing about this is that black Americans’ ancestors arrived in the New World earlier than Spencer’s did.

      [*] “amusing” – well, not really since we’re discussing Nazis.

    Three white supremacists from Texas pile in their jeep and drive to Gainesville to shoot people? Hmm. Let’s wait and see how long it takes Trump and the usual suspects to come out and decry violence from “outside agitators.”

    What? They just reserve that argument for unarmed BLM protesters? My bad.

    I’m surprised the Gainesville PD posts the arrest reports. They include home addresses, phone numbers, drivers license numbers, and social security numbers of all three of these twerps.

    In this time of blaming police for alot of bad things. This police officer was exceptional. He thanked the victims, made no secret that the assholes from Texas should not show hate in FLA, I can’t imagine a better spokesman than him. He was smart, sharp and no nonsense. Compare him to the black cowboy from Milwaukee, Clark, or Arapaho from Arizona and this guy gets what “to serve and to protect” means. I trust him.

  • Galvestonian

    I think it’s a “oh shit, I’m fucked” look – the other two are too stupid to realize the trouble they’re in. They’re all Texas country ‘grade A’ beef boys – all muscle, no brains – probably decent families, luke warm Christian upbringing, graduated high school in the most popular group — which was the high point of their lives so far and got into the white supremacy group for funning around and drinking beer on weekends. Their parents are most definitely in the ‘my boys just couldn’t do that’ mode.
