Mugshot of USAF sergeant Steven Carillo
A California man charged with killing a federal officer and a sheriff’s deputy has ties to the far-right “Boogaloo” movement, according to federal authorities.
Air Force Staff Sgt. Steven Carrillo, 32, was charged with killing federal service officer David Patrick Underwood, 53, near a Black Lives Matter protest at an Oakland courthouse on May 29…
A second man, Robert Alvin Justus Jr., was charged with aiding and abetting after he admitted to serving as Carrillo’s getaway driver in the drive-by attack on the officers…Inside the vehicles used by Carrillo, police found a patch linked to the “Boogaloo boys” movement, as well as bomb making equipment, ammo and guns, the FBI said. The movement seeks to use peaceful protests as cover to launch attacks in hopes of sparking a race war.
Not a new tactic for the fascist-minded. Given the right circumstances and a dull-witted investigation, they might just getaway with something like this. After all, we’ve had days of lynching and racist massacres in the past in this land…provoked by nothing more than rumors.
