BREAKING: On Friday, during the livestream prelim hearing on Steven Baca's shooting & battery charges from a statue protest, this man, who identified himself as "Daniel" & a III%-er, showed up at a witness' home with a handgun, asking for them by name & if they were “antifa.”
“Daniel" said he wouldn't be the last person to show up at their home armed; there would be others, he promised. Before he came to their door, he harassed a neighbor, who he mistook as the witness in the Baca case he was looking for.
During the hearing, the defense asked a witness to name other witnesses. They said they feared retaliation against others. The judge said that fear was “ridiculous." Baca is expected to be formally arraigned on the charges next week.
This is a pattern of right-wing terror going after teachers, university faculty, and now witnesses in criminal proceedings at their homes and workplaces. Earlier this year, white supremacists threatened to lynch the chair of Africana studies at UNM & also march armed on campus.
I'm not a lawyer, but I believe this is witness tampering and witness intimidation. Many journalists and witnesses have been citing the fear of retaliation for months now. It'll be interesting to see if others come forward and how those in power will respond. More to come.
