Members of a pro-Confederate flag group called “Respect the Flag” accused of threatening black party-goers with slurs and brandishing a weapon or weapons are being indicted in Georgia. Members of the group also drove a truck displaying multiple Confederate flags, which is being used as a secondary charge in the indictment:

From the New York Times report:

Mr. Fortner said that the Georgia statute upon which the second charge is based, the Street Gang Terrorism and Prevention Act, is “worded very broadly to deal with any type of activity that occurs with a group that’s organized that commits a crime.”

“We respect the rights of all citizens to exercise their First Amendment right,” Mr. Fortner said. “But we’re going to require them, when doing that, to respect the rights of all of the citizens to feel safe and secure.”
