Anti-Racist Protesters Brutally Beat White Supremacists in Chicago
12 months ago
5 men arrested for attacking "European Heritage Organization."
A bloody melee broke out at a suburban Chicago restaurant when a group of white supremacists faced off with a group of protesters.
The white supremacists, who claim to be part of a European Heritage Organization, were at a lunch gathering for about 20 when they were walloped by a group of protesters.
Their presence triggered about 18 people, wearing masks and hoodies with weapons, to rush into the restaurant and wail on the group, police said.
“This was a real riot,” said Tinley Park Mayor Edward Zabrocki. “These guys started beating the crap out of the other group."

Five Indiana men were arrested on charges of aggravated battery, criminal damage to property and mob action, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. They were: Alex Stuck, 22; John Tucker, 26; and brothers Jason Sutherlin, 33, Cody Sutherlin, 23, and Dylan Sutherlin, 20.
The men were reportedly part of an anti-racist group who learned about their gathering and called it a “White Nationalist Economic Summit and Illinois White Nationalist Meet-and-Greet.”
In the melee, 10 diners were injured and 3 had head wounds and were hospitalized.
The restaurant owner had no knowledge the event was a white supremacist gathering.
