VIRGINIA: Court Denies Bail For The Weeping Nazi

The Daily Progress reports:

A prominent figure in the white nationalist movement argued he is a “shock jock” who runs a “racist podcast” before he was denied bond on Thursday evening. Cantwell turned himself in last week in Lynchburg after UVa police announced that warrants were out for his arrest.

On Thursday morning, an Albemarle County judge set bond for Cantwell at $25,000, but the county’s head prosecutor had until 4 p.m. to appeal that decision. Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Tracci did so, and after a bizarre hearing that lasted nearly four hours, Judge Cheryl Higgins reversed the lower court judge’s decision.

As you’ll see at the link, last night’s courtroom battle hinged on whether Cantwell’s starring role in the Vice documentary could be played during the hearing.
