Black Nationalist Charged With Attacking Phoenix Police Officers

In what may be the most recent attempt at violence against police officers by someone angry over the highly publicized police killings of black men across the United States in recent years, a Phoenix man allegedly rammed his vehicle into a trio of police officers standing outside a convenience store.

A police-obtained video from the incident, which occurred on September 12,  shows a vehicle allegedly driven by Marc LaQuon Payne, 44, circling the store parking lot, then accelerating towards the officers, two of whom were seriously injured by the vehicle.  The third received injuries while trying to arrest Payne.  One of the officers was serving his first day on the job.

Payne has been charged with three counts of attempted first-degree murder, five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of resisting arrest.  Phoenix police believe that Payne deliberately targeted the police officers and had surveilled them for several minutes before acting.

Several social media accounts that apparently belong to Payne reveal that he has extreme black nationalist views and that he had also been angry over police shootings since at least the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014.   These profiles and postings do not reveal membership or affiliation with any specific groups, but do illustrate a liking or admiration for a variety of black nationalist extremist groups and causes, ranging from the People’s New Black Panther Party (different from the New Black Panther Party) to the Huey P. Newton Gun Club to a variety of Pan-African groups and causes.

Remarks on Payne’s social media accounts in 2015 reveal considerable antipathy towards whites, including statements about violence.  An April 2015 post asserts that “when the black man get [sic] ready to be free from whitey it will be war.”  In May, another post states that “ain’t no Caucasian going [to] give back what their ancestors stole so they just as guilty.”

The most chilling comment came in June 2015:  “The Caucasian needs to be slaughtered like the pigs that they are right along with the niggas who serve and protect them.”

Payne has been ordered held without bond.

Other similar incidents in 2016 include the Baton Rouge shootings by Gavin Long, the black nationalist and sovereign citizen, and the Dallas shootings by black nationalist extremist Micah Johnson.

Oregon Police Save Woman Held Hostage by Armed White Supremacist

A SWAT team with the Gladstone Police Department in Northwestern Oregon rescued a woman being held hostage by a barricaded white supremacist following a shootout with police.jeffreygiddingstattoos

The incident began on August 8, 2016, when Jeffrey Carl Giddings, a convicted felon and career criminal, fled on a bicycle from an officer who was attempting to stop him for a traffic violation.

A short time later, Giddings allegedly opened fire on a police sergeant who had located him in the parking lot of a Subway restaurant.  The sergeant was struck in his ballistic vest and is reportedly in excellent condition.

Giddings then took a woman hostage and barricaded himself in the Subway.  A responding SWAT team tried to negotiate with Giddings, but he made demands and refused to give up.  Fearing for the hostage’s safety, the SWAT team shot Giddings and saved the woman. Giddings suffered a non-life threatening injury and was taken to the hospital.

Giddings’ face and body are covered in tattoos.  Many of them are symbols used by white supremacists including the words “Aryan Pride”, a Celtic Cross and “16/23,” a numerical code for PW or “peckerwood.”  Additionally, Giddings has IPS tattoos on both his neck and collarbone area which is the acronym for the Insane Peckerwood Syndicate, a white supremacist prison gang with members in Oregon and Washington.

This is the second shootout in the United States between police and domestic extremists this month, and the ninth so far this year.

The Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s office has charged Anissa Hallmark, Michael Auxilien, Elizabeth Auxilien, David Wayne Williams, Christa Williams, Heather Tate, Jeremey Wade Jorden, and Brian Elliot Granger with accessory after the fact to 2nd degree murder.  Two additional Aryan Circle members, Richard Smith and Leland Hamm, are wanted on charges related to the murder.

On July 1, 2016, Anissa Hallmark and another woman called 911 from a local gas station alleging Clifton had been shot there during a robbery. Responding deputies found Clifton Hallmark outside the gas station with a gunshot wound to the head.  He was transported the hospital, but later died.  The following murder investigation found discrepancies in the robbery story told by the women and revealed that Hallmark was actually shot during an altercation at a nearby pre-July 4th party.

The Aryan Circle MC, previously called the Iron Circle, is a subgroup of the Aryan Circle, a racist prison gang.
