Accused White Supremacists Charged with Beating Mexicans in S.F.

Welcome to San Francisco, gentlemen
Three alleged white supremacists appeared in a San Francisco courtroom this morning to answer to charges of attacking two Mexican nationals -- kicking one unconscious while yelling: "white power."

The accused attackers in this Tenderloin hate crime case -- including Robert Allen, 38, Anthony Weston, 32, and Justin Meskan, 29 -- plead not guilty to charges of assault and battery, with hate crime enhancements. They weren't literally "Skin Heads," as the Mexican consulate claimed in its press release -- they all had hair. One had quite a lot of it. Two had goatees.

Afterward, reporters gathered at a press conference this morning, where District Attorney George Gascón alleged that the three men were part of a larger white supremacist group that had approached one of the Mexican men standing outside a Tenderloin bar.

They pushed him to the ground and kicked him until he was unconscious, Gascón said.


The attackers then turned on another Mexican man who had tried to help the victim.

Gascón told reporters that the incident signaled an "uptick" in white supremacist crime in San Francisco. But one cop, who monitors white gangs in the city, said he isn't so sure about that.

SFPD hate crime statistics for 2010 did not note the November incident; stats only show one crime -- in April -- where a Hispanic man was targeted because of his race.

Gascón wouldn't give us more details about this white supremacist group, but Inspector Dan Silver, who monitors white gangs in the department's Gang Task Force, told SF Weekly he has his doubts that these men are members of the notorious Aryan Brotherhood.

"I would be surprised because it's pretty up there in the prison system to be in the Aryan Brotherhood," Silver said. "They could be hateful white-power dudes who just felt like beating people up."

"Just because someone used a racial epithet during an assault, doesn't mean that's the reason they assaulted them," Silver added.  

As for Gascón calling the incident part of an "uptick" in white supremacist violence, Silver provided a little context. He said that because this type of  "white power" crime is so rare in San Francisco, a few incidents might give the appearance of an increase.

"To my knowledge there is no white gang terrorizing San Francisco, beating up minorities on any regular basis, because I'm sure we'd be hearing quite a bit more about that," Silver said.

But we have heard of white nationalists being victimized: Last year, we wrote about Bay Area National Anarchists, a white nationalist group, getting beaten after they protested the May Day immigration rally in front of City Hall.  
 
In the November case, Gascón said, one of the two Mexican victims had returned to Mexico after the assault. Later, the Mexican Consulate paid for his trip back to San Francisco so he could assist the prosecution, said Gabriela Mardero Jimenez, spokeswoman with the Mexican Consulate.

Deputy Mexican Consul Jonathan Chait said the two victims were not yet seeking U visas for victims of crime, which would pave the way for them to become permanent residents of the United States.

Justin has held me hostage an beat me to a miscarriage as well. And anthonys long standing "girlfriend" was a business relationship for visa's. And the chinese girlfriend is sitting in federal prison herself and kicked out of the country. Justin meskan' s only source of income is fraud. Justin and Anthony are women beating peices of shit! I pressed charges on Justin one time and suffered a cuncision for doing so. His delusional father seems to believe the best let me tell you he has never worked a day in his life except breaking into your car and stealing your laptop. Running your credit cards and ruining your life. Yes very hard work being a low life.

I am the father of Justin Meskan.. He grew up in San Diego and Atlanta Georgia.. He had many mexican friends that he worked with at my restaurant (Georges at the Cove) in San Diego that will testify for him and many Black Americans in Atlanta-Dallas Georgia that will testify that he was a close friend for years going over to their homes for Sunday dinner for "GREAT" soul food and friendship.. I will produce these friends in court for Justin.. I do not know the others involved but I do know that he was raised in a home that if you said the "N" word you would be grounded for weeks and talked to about the comment.. Not just in my house but my fathers as well. None of my 3 boys are predgdice(SP) and they will all be there to testify in court as well.. Justin is no biggot and this man Gascon better have his facts straight because I suffer from end stage renal failure and do not have long to live so I will throw all the money I have at plane fairs for his Black and Mexican friends, depositions ect to prove him wrong and power hungry..

Tell the truth.As for sponsoring kids in chili any one who knows him is laughing !! He probably pushed 2 kids down and took their chili !

This so called "hate crime" has become a media circus, which Gascon is using for a stage to make a name for himself as District Attorney. It is understandable for him to feel that the recent corruption and scandals involving the S.F.P.D while he was Chief of Police have tarnished his reputation. It is logical to that he assume that he would want to separate himself from the horrendous publicity but there is only one problem...The three men that are in custody and are being charged with a hate crime are not gang members. They are not skinheads or members of the Aryan Brotherhood. They are not members of any white supremacist group nor do they participate in any activities or crimes related to any such organization. Am I sure of this? Absolutely. I know this because I know all three of these men on a personal level and have known one of them for 11 years and the other two for almost 7 years. Gascon is responsible for the reputation of the city of San Francisco becoming more damaged and all for the sake of creating a situation that he thinks will finally make him look like some kind of hero. A carefully procured scenario that will guarantee that the residents of our city will forget about the drug lab scandal and the S.F.P.D officers involved in illegal activities enough so that when election time comes around he has something to put on his campaign flyers. He wants our votes. He doesn't deserve them. Let's not forget about the character assassinations that the three men have suffered by Gascon and the media. Every news program or article that I have seen or read has practically convicted them already. We are all INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. The families and friends of these men agonize at the possibility that if they are wrongfully convicted they will go to prison for 10 years. The accusations directed at the people they know and love that are not only untrue but misleading as well. I can only hope that Gascon will come to his senses and find a truthful and sincere way to acquire votes that will secure his current position as District Attorney of San Francisco instead of sacrificing the lives and futures of three innocent men.

When San Quentin Prison releases convicts, it drops them off at the San Rafael Transit Center where they get on a Golden Gate Transit bus and head to 7th and Market. I've ridden with them enough times. That's probably where these charmers came from.

Actually, two of them were living a half block away from the bar where this occurred. One has had a business in the tenderloin for a number of years two blocks from this same bar, look up PAK 9 tattoos. there are pictures of the shop showing clientele of all races. All three are regulars at this bar and have been for quite awhile. Hate crimes are despicable, trying to convict someone of a hate crime where none exists to get elected DA is far worse.

Actually the tattoo shop lasted a year and the main source of income was from "arranged" marriages as for being respectable lmfao the only people getting tattoos were skin heads. The place was a joke. Do your home work they are both life time criminals and VIOLANT ones at that.

Sounds like overreaching bullshit to me. I don't believe a word of it.

Hmmm, seems that it's only those who stand up for the White race that get constantly punished. Crime against Whites is treated much differently than those commited by Whites against others. Lop-sided are tthe laws of today put on us by this Zionist controled system we live under.

Isn't that the fucking truth!  Finally someone has the courage to tell things like they are.

Our country was founded by Americans of European Heritage ("Whites") for White people.  Period.  While I try to remain tolerant and accept others regardless of race and / or nationality, many non-whites have greatly contributed themselves to their "poor standing" among whites.

As a white (and natural) blond American woman,  I find it not only appalling but infuriating whenever I pass a group of non-whites to a chorus of whistles and lude remarks.  (This is in front of a supermarket or other "white" public place.)  Even in the relatively small city I grew up in no sane white person would drive through the poor black parts of town during the day, let alone at night.

Not only here but abroad are whites the most freqent targets of hate attacks.  If the God damned Zionists would stop their campaign to morph us all into one mongrel race (don't misunderstand me:  every race has a right to take pride in itself and to uphold certain traditions) and to continue to distract us as they peacefully exert their power over OUR government, maybe some of the idiots it this country just might wake up. Of course, that won't be easy given their vast influence on entertainment, media., usw.  

What enrages me most is that we Americans are expected (and to a large part do) to go along with their Zionist propoganda.  What I can't understand is the ban in Isreal on marraige between Jews and non-Jews.  Could this be interpreted as a double-standard?

Maybe its just me.  Wake up you sedated, brainwashed and shame-filled Whites everywhere!  No one is going to save us but ourselves!!!

Lets see, one of the white supremacist is Jewish and another has a long standing Chinese girlfriend. As to who started the fight, some witnesses say the Mexicans did but the DA doesn't mention that. It's not even clear who the real victims are. The DA is making up a crime where none exists for political reasons, he's trying to get elected DA in November. A total waste of public funds.

P/C Liberals Run Wild!! This is comical..Talk about extreme 'overreach' in trying to fashion a cause to rally 'round'. So the T/L's now being o'er run by Rev. Butler's Hayden Lake Aryans!?Wow! Did I see a blonde youth stand up at the Happy Donut on Ellis St. and sing 'Tomorrow Belongs to Me."? Not so sure. Meanwhile , black teens assaulting older Chinese , exclusively , isn't a 'hate crime' but just 'quality of life'..I thought Kamala left town. She's apparently 'channeling' through Mr. Gascon.
