Neo-nazis Given Stiff Prison Terms, Denounced As ‘hatemongers’

Four members of the neo-Nazi National Renaissance Party were sentenced to one to two years in state prison this weekend for causing a riot at a civil rights demonstration in the Bronx last summer.

In sentencing the two leaders of the group, Judge Irwin Davidson called them “hatemongers” and said that “they did not hesitate to recruit for their malevolent purposes young men whom they succeeded in injecting with their own virus of hate. ” The court identified the leaders as James Madole and Daniel Burros.
