Eugene Weekly has gotten word that local racist Jimmy Marr has been arrested for disorderly conduct in Springfield.
EW correspondent Jennefer Harper, a CodePink activist, took photos of the arrest and says police are now searching Marr’s home.
Harper says she was walking to the Community Alliance of Lane County, Standing Up for Racial Justice and NAACP Stop Hate! rally outside Willamalane Center when she encountered Marr’s house where he was blasting offensive speech such as “hate is good” from a loudspeaker on his roof.
This blog will be updated when more information is available. Springfield spokesman Niel Laudati confirmed the arrest.
