Self-Proclaimed KKK Leader Drove through BLM Protest Sentenced Six Years

A Virginia man and self-proclaimed Ku Klux Klan leader who drove through a Black Lives Matter protest in June was sentenced to six years in jail on several misdemeanor charges, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch

Harry H. Rogers, 36, was convicted of six misdemeanors and sentenced to a year in jail on each charge Monday. 

Rogers was found guilty of four simple assaults, property damage and hit-and-run. 

The charges stem from a June 7 incident near Richmond, Va., in which Rogers drove his truck onto the median to pass a group of cars behind hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters. He then re-entered the travel lanes and drove through protesters marching in the street hitting at least three people, the outlet reported.
