A California man had his registered firearm seized by local police after “antifa” members on social media accused him of being racist on the internet — the first case of its kind.

On July 7th/8th, left-wing extremist twitter user @anonymouscommie doxed a Sacramento resident named Andrew Casarez. The anonymous account accused him of being a “neo-Nazi troll.”

On the very same day, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office opened up an investigation into him. During a background check, they found that Casarez was a registered gun owner. On July 13th, 2020, Sergeant Nate Grgich executed a search warrant for his home and car.

Nothing illegal or of a criminal nature was found during the search, but Sgt. Grgich was able to get a judge’s permission to seize Casarez’s handgun, a pair of pants and a “racist” t-shirt using a new law enforcement tool called a “gun restraining order,” which was signed by Judge Jaime R. Roman.
...
“This search warrant it’s the first of its kind at least in the country. As far as how we obtained it and were able to serve it,” Nelson said. “He was posting enough racist rhetoric and propaganda on Facebook that it was concerning that his behaviors could become violent in retaliation.”

Police Confiscate Man's Firearm After Anonymous "Antifa" Members Accuse Him of Being a "Racist"


Alleged Leader Of Neo-Nazi Group Identified As Orangevale Resident Andrew Casarez


I don't know whether this man is a "true nazy", or yet another victim of the lying left which claims everyone on the right is a racist/nazy. However, authorities in hellhole California decided to ask a judge for a "gun restraining order" using the man's political views as evidence. They do not mention any criminal activity committed by this man, yet they were able to confiscate his weapon for his "political views..."

They also confiscated a "t-shirt" that said "racist..." I wonder if the real nazis in power in this case will do the same with "deplorable T-shirts" or t-shirts saying Trump 2020...

The real fascists showed themselves.

I wonder if they would serve "gun restraining orders" against Antifa, BLM, etc whem members of these violent radical groups have threatened political opponents that they would kill them, beat them to a pulp etc... In fact Antifa, BLM, etc entire platform is racism and violence to attain their goals...

Seems to be a lot that is unknown:


“For a little over three weeks our detectives, along with multiple federal agencies, have been looking into Andrew Casarez,”



For years the self-proclaimed leader hid behind the pseudonym Vic Mackey, hosting the Bowl Cast, a podcast spewing hateful rhetoric and language. But his true identity was not known until now.


Either way, this guy was being investigated, but now his name is plastered all over the place without committing an actual crime. Someone is playing the 'system'. And proving a point.

Can we use this after anyone anonymous accuses a person of being a gang member? Think of the house to house searches and arrests in Chicago alone.

I don't think racist is an actual crime... unlike gang activity is.

Crazy they were able to do this but.....
The moral of the story is don’t post your racist rhetoric online or better yet, don’t be a racist at all.
Maybe it was overreach but I don’t have any sympathy for a real racist.

Every Right-Wing/Conservative person who lives in California should make plans to leave the state. You aren't wanted there as a person, but the state likes your tax dollars and fees paid.

California would become a sh'it-hole in short order if all RightWing/Conservatives left. It's already on the brink.

He is a disgusting human being.

That said, I really hope they have more than "said hateful stuff on the internet" to get such a wide reaching warrant. I sincerely hope the judge has much heavier evidence than "he was being mean online".

I'm going to let this play out a bit and more information to come out before I get to worked up over it.

...being a racist is still 100% legal. I have a hard time saying infringement of an enumerated Right in absence of an actual criminal action and due process is anything but a "bad thing."

They should take his car, knives, shovels, computer, cleaning chemicals, phone, and anything else he might use for extreme racism. Might as well take his home too. I mean, it's just property and they said he's an extreme racist. Why wait for him to do anything illegal? Should probably just put him directly in prison so he can't hurt anybody.

You mean like the "Proud Boys" which you leftists LOVE to claim are "racists" despite the fact that they allow all men, of all races, of all religions, but with one thing in common... They must love the U.S. and for this they are "racists"?...

Or do you mean the "deplorables", and "Trump supporters" whom the left, including the demoncrats and the lying left-wing media have been claiming "all Trump supporters are racists/nazis?..."

The left calls everyone on the right, more so for Trump supporters, as racists and nazis...

Then I want every left-winger whom wants socialism and communism in the U.S. in jail, all their property confiscated, and forced into "re-education camps" to make them capitalists, and lovers of the Constitutional and representative Republic, as well as to "re-educate them" to love the U.S. Constitution and to not change it...

After all socialism and communism have been the destroyer of nations, have murdered over 120 million people, and put millions more into concentration camps/gulags and re-education camps...

OK. I'll say it...
Those dang neo nazi, white supremacist Hispanics are the real problem in this country! The guys name is Andrew Casarez. I could be mistaken but Casarez (especially living in Cali) is most likely NOT going to look like your typical skin head. Lol

Now that we've got that out of the way, I know zero about the guy. He might be the most racist person to ever walk the planet BUT unless he has committed a crime (a felony, not misdemeanor), confiscation of his weapon should not be allowed by any judge or sheriff in this country. But, again, we are taking about Cali here.

I know Judge Jaime R. Roman. Sacramento Superior Court Judge Jaime R. Roman received the sanction of public admonishment on May 16 from the California Supreme Court’s Commission on Judicial Performance.

The admonishment is a rare form of discipline for members of the robe. The commission dispensed only two last year—and 86 over two decades. centerforjudicialexcellence.org...
He is a socialist bastard full of hatred. Sad but there are many many like him in Commyfornia. And because of his prejudiced and racist actions, I left Commyfornia. Sac County Sheriffs act like his personal Gestapo. If your in Commyfornia you must leave or suffer the loss of your freedom.

If the police watched his internet activity for 3 weeks before deciding to ask the court to let them take his gun, it's safe to say they found probable cause to attempt to do so.

They weren't on a left-wing crusade against the right-wing keyboard warriors, they obviously read some # that was concerning. The fact that the guy got doxxed to begin with means he was knee deep in this garbage.

You think they did it for fun or have an agenda to pick on individual people because they're outspoken for Trump? The strong arm of the liberal keyboard warriors? Man, truly they have better and more important # to be doing than that. And yes, I believe that if the guy was an antifa member or a left-wing troll, he'd get the same treatment. They'd take an antifa members gun even quicker; he's part of a known and organized violent group. Dare I say there were more republican voting officers involved than democrat; police and military are always majority right-wing.

Not only that, this might blow your mind but.. there were democrat and republican voting officers on the same teams, working together and doing their job. Like I said, they're not neccessarily into this polarized left vs right gang war crap that so many members here are, they dont go through life color blind only able to see red and blue. They probably goto bars and hangout together. If one's left and the other right, they're still brothers in arms.

Logic dictates that this person's firearm was not removed for racism then, is it possible this is simply a ruse to wind up those invested in the outrage culture.

Ummm.. did they arrest the antifa terrorists to ?
Was it not declared they where terrorists ?
This scenario would be like if Isis called the police and said US marines was being a bully.

Andrew Richard Casarez, 27, has been under investigation since December ”regarding graffiti which appeared to be motivated by hate/race” and became the subject of an emergency gun violence protective order after an online website identified him as an online poster in white supremacy sites known as “Vic Mackey,” the purported leader of a group known as the “Bowl Patrol.”

“The ‘Bowl Patrol’ is an online group that endorses violence against minorities, they take their name from known domestic terrorist (Dylann) Roof who is known for killing 9 people at a prayer meeting in South Carolina,” according to a sheriff’s declaration filed in Sacramento Superior Court. “Roof is known in the white supremacists movement for having a ‘bowl cut haircut.’”



“On his podcast, he boasted about his alleged connection to Robert Bowers, who is charged with the deadly shooting of 11 people inside the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018,” the Huffington Post reported, adding that Casarez “has made a point to brag about real-world crimes in his area.”
