Christopher Cantwell, White Nationalist, Surrenders to the Police
"Earlier this week, the University of Virginia Police Department said the charges against the man, Christopher Cantwell, 36, included two felony counts of illegal use of tear gas, and one count of malicious bodily injury by means of a caustic substance."
I hope while he is incarcerated that the jail has a few black inmates to show Cantwell the way.

You're correct in concluding that he'll be a high visibility target. Keep in mind that in prison there are White Nationalist gangs, so they'll keep him protected. He might also be put into isolation so he has no contact with other prisoners.
I however believe it is a very dangerous ideology to want our system of justice to partly include "Prison Justice". The current system is designed to ensure that collateral damage is not part of the equation (ie its not OK to have 1 innocent people in prison for every 10 guilty). Sometimes that means very bad people never get the full punishment equal to the the suffering they have inflicted.
Yes, sometimes karma is greater than legal justice.
My wife & I were discussing the pepper spraying incident, and she said well, they sell pepper spray over the counter, and I said they don't sell it to people to use on others for any reason other than defense against a mugger, I told her she thinks like a republican.
But OTC pepper spray isn't the same as tear gas, I wonder where Cantwell acquired tear gas?
Just saw a meme on FB with Rod Stirling (sp? Twilight zone) in the Oval office with DT at his desk. It read:
Imagine, if you will, a world in which Nazi's are openly marching in the streets and your biggest concern is the people protesting them....
