WILLIAMSPORT, PA – A neo-Nazi associate of the Keystone State “Skinheads” (KSS) that attended the last two annual events sponsored by the organization to observe Leif Erickson Day in Philadelphia is in jail after a weekend arrest on charges of assault and endangering the welfare of children.
According to reports, Patrick Rogers, 33 of Williamsport is being held in Lycoming County, Pa. Prison in lieu of the total amount of a $5000 bail, as opposed to the commonplace 10 percent, after police arrested him and charged him with one count each of simple assault and the endangerment charge. A detainer on a probation violation is keeping him incarcerated pending trial, however. He has two children with his live-in girlfriend Heidi McCarty, but neither the children or McCarty were harmed in the incident. At press time information surrounding the circumstances of the arrest were not available.
Rogers and McCarty both attended the “Leif Erickson Day Celebration” in 2012 and 2013 on what is referred to as Boathouse Row in Philadelphia. The annual event is sponsored by KSS and has brought out varied number of neo-Nazis as well as antifa opposing them. This year saw it’s largest event as 30 neo-Nazis from a number of different states came out with over 200 persons in opposition. Rogers regularly trolled the Facebook pages of those working to oppose them, often taunting them with racist remarks and threats. Despite this, he has attempted to downplay his racism as well.
“I’m not a fucking Nazi nor ever have been and focus on preserving my Ancestral Lineage, not whoop on someone!” He once wrote in a message to Daryle Lamont Jenkins of One People’s Project. “I’m a White Nationalist/Constitutionalist with the best interests of Europeans in mind along with upholding all Americans rights, not worry about any other race and their actions or progress. That’s for their leaders and community activists to bare the burden as do I for my own! I interact with all races and NEVER have I once did ill to anyone for that reason alone nor ever will! Rednecks in the fucking hills that cook meth around their children all day pisses me off just as much as gangsters from North Philly bringing in Heroin to Williamsport!”
Rogers has had several run-in with the law since 2002, when he was arrested for providing alcohol to minors. He also was arrested in 2010 on charges of assault, reckless endangerment and making terroristic threats.
