#ABQ - meet Proud Boy Brian Joseph Pritchard. Brian lives in Rio Rancho and spends his time sending death threats to #albuquerque activists and community members. He's also organizing a White Lives Matter event at the Abq convention center on April 11th at 11M. 1/
In March, Brian sent messages to a Black #abq activist that include racist and homophobic slurs and threats of lynching. He sent pictures of a noose and claimed "the white n*gga in charge now." 2/
Brian is a perfect example of the kind of racism and hatred that the Proud Boys celebrate as "western chauvinism." Like most other Proud Boys, Brian is a domestic abuser who has been arrested twice for violence against his wife. 3/
Threatening messages sent to another local activist asked them to attend the White Lives Matter event, saying several of the Proud Boys needed to earn their "4th coin." The fourth degree for Proud Boys is earned by attacking and beating activists and antifascists 4/
Brian Pritchard is a threat to our community. If you have additional information about him or other New Mexico Proud Boys, our DM's are open. 5/

If you live in #Albuquerque, your new chief of police is going to be Harold Medina -- a man who shot a fourteen year old boy to death in a church in 2002. The boy was in the middle of a mental health crisis and had a BB gun. He went to the church to pray for help. 1/
Last June, Medina was in charge the police response to the Juan de Oñate protest. Michael Geier was the chief at the time and instructed Medina to position police officers in clear view of the protest to discourage violence between the heavily armed New Mexico Civil Guard 2/
and unarmed protesters. Medina ignored this directive. He allowed a heavily armed militia/gang to harass, intimidate, and assault unarmed members of the community he is sworn to protect. More importantly, he KNEW this was happening. 3/
