Four men who authorities said were pictured violently hitting counterprotesters at the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville are now facing federal charges.

Government investigators used Facebook and social media posts to connect four California men with a “militant white-supremacist organization” and place them at the Charlottesville rally using social media posts and bank records, according to a federal arrest affidavit.

Beyond that, authorities said they were able to identify the men in footage from the Aug. 12, 2017, rally, picturing them attacking other attendees.

The men – Benjamin Drake Daley, Michael Paul Miselis, Thomas Walter Gillen, Cole Evan White – were charged under the riot act. The charge is not related to the death of Heather Heyer, who was killed during the rally.

The charging document released by U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Virginia Thomas T. Cullen Tuesday alleges that the men violated the riot act in either inciting a riot, traveling to participate in a riot, committing any act of violence during a riot, or aiding or abetting any person in inciting or participating in a riot.

So I guess that despite the fact that we actually have a white supremacist in the White House, we still have at least some sense of justice. 

Let’s hope we manage to hold onto it for the next two years.
