Eight Convicted in Bronx Rioting Last July 14; Alleged Neo‐Nazis Guilty of Inciting Rights Pickets at White Castle

JUNE 11, 1964

Eight alleged members of the neo‐Nazi National Renaissance Party were found guilty yesterday in Bronx Supreme Court of inciting a riot in connection with a civil rights demonstration last July 14,

A jury of five women and seven men returned the verdict of guilty on 32 of 40 counts after 26 hours of deliberation. The trial had begun on May 7.

At the time, Negros were picketing the diner for alleged racial discriminatory practices. When two of the eight defend‐ ants complained to the police that the demonstrators had damaged their station wagon, detectives who investigated found a cross‐bow, guns and knives in the vehicle.

A disorder involving the pick‑ ets and the defendants resulted in riot charges against the eight men. During the trial the police testified that the group sought to incite to violence the Negroes who were demonstrating and to use the weapons in the station wagon against the pickets then if the I police did not act.

The station wagon was parked near the scene of the demonstration, a White Castle Diner at Soundview Avenue and Bruckner Boulevard, the Bronx.
