The police chief doesn't seem
too bright:The reason the neo-Nazi group attempted to march in Toledo was still in dispute yesterday.
Chief Navarre told reporters that a resident of Bronson Avenue — John Szych or someone in his family — contacted the group.
The chief said there was a dispute over a fence between Mr. Szych’s son, a white man who also lives on Bronson, and a black woman. He added that the older Mr. Szych has made repeated calls to police about gang or drug activity in the neighborhood.
“Mr. Szych’s calls were highly exaggerated and found to be without merit,” the chief said.
Gee, you think Mr Szych might be in a little trouble with the riot crowd?Mr. Szych said shots were fired at his house and a brick was thrown through his window, striking him in the back.
He responded by returning fire with his own gun.
Both Mr. Szych and his son said they stayed up all night with their firearms guarding their homes. “Yesterday I shot over their heads,” Mr. Szych said. “But today, I’m [upset]. If I see someone with a fire bomb or anything like that, I’ll shoot to kill.”
He threatened to sue the city and Chief Navarre for implicating him in the Nazi’s march.A black neighbor, who declined to give his name, called Mr. Szych a racist who instigates violence with black residents.
Obviously I don't know the truth or falsity of the claim that Mr Szych contacted the neo-Nutballs. True or not, there's no doubt the police chief is stoking the flames, making it more likely there will be more trouble.
