Over the weekend, in the city of Louisville in Kentucky, different groups collided in a chaotic display of non-state armed power. Strikingly, the police, the National Guard and civic leaders were nowhere to be seen for several hours. In other words, the competing militias had the run of a major American city. It was like a scene from the Wild West, but without a sheriff in town. One militia leader is Dylan Stevens, known as the Angry Viking. He sees himself as filling a security vacuum following a summer of protests and of sporadic violence in a number of US cities. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at www.itv.com/news
All-Black NFAC Militia Members March on Lafayette in Armed Rally
Several hundred black-clad NFAC members, many of them carrying assault rifles, paraded through Lafayette on Saturday. The column included people wearing body armor and other tactical gear.
