Zach Roberts, for Truthout, spoke with Lee Merritt, Harris's attorney and a legal specialist on police brutality and corruption.

The beating, which was captured on camera and quickly spiraled across the internet, occurred after a white supremacist tried to spear a counter-protester with a flag pole, the Washington Post reported in August. Six white supremacists then descended on Harris, kicking him and striking him with wooden sticks as he lay curled up on the pavement.

Lt. Stephen Upman said an alleged victim went to the magistrate's office to describe the events leading up to a violent assault against Harris at the East Market Street parking garage. I was knocked unconscious repeatedly.

Roberts has tweeted that police still had not interviewed him about the beating to this day, even though he is a witness.

White supremacists on Twitter appeared to celebrate the warrant Monday evening; one white nationalist appeared to validate Merritt's claim there had been a group effort within the community to collect evidence that would get Harris arrested.

Several of Harris' attackers remain on the run - and local and federal officials show little interest in going after them. Nevertheless, direct pleas to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents by this reporter have failed to get Justice Department action to charge Harris attackers and Roberts' assailant with these crimes. We have reports on two of the suspects. Both were charged with malicious wounding, a felony.

Two men - 18-year-old Daniel Borden of OH and 33-year-old Michael Ramos of Georgia - were identified, arrested, extradited to Virginia, and charged with malicious wounding in August. He was arrested in the Cincinnati area on August 25 and held in OH, initially indicating he would fight extradition.

Borden fought extradition but was returned to Virginia and denied bond September 21. Harris incurred injuries that required him to have eight staples into his head. "He also suffered a broken wrist and a chipped tooth".
