Louisiana State Police accused of circulating white supremacist propaganda in lawsuit
Harvard Law School lecturer Thomas Frampton and New Orleans civil rights attorney William Most have filled a lawsuit alleging that the Louisiana State Police circulated a fake list of Antifa names sourced from white supremacist groups.
After Most filled a public records request for police emails with white supremacist code words in May, he was initially stonewalled and refused what they estimated were thousands of emails.
According to WGNO in New Orleans, eventually the state police turned over 64 emails containing the phrase “white genocide.”
It was then that Most discovered an attached document which had been circulated between high ranking officers in the Louisiana State Police and local law enforcement which reportedly contained the names of Antifa members.
Most alleges the list is fake, actually consisting of people who had merely signed a petition protesting Donald Trump, and had originated on the message board 8Chan before being populated on white supremacist websites like Stormfront.
When Most requested this list he says the Louisiana State Police refused the request, telling him “releasing the document could ‘compromise’ an ongoing criminal investigation in which LSP anticipates arrests, and reveal the identity of its ‘Confidential Informant.’”
