The Naval Criminal Investigative Service has confirmed that a Camp Lejeune Marine is under investigation for alleged involvement with a white supremacist organization.

The Marine under investigations is Lance Cpl. Vasillios George Pistolis, 21 of Mecklenburg County, a water support technician attached to Combat Logistics Battalion 8, Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, according to 1st Lt. Samir J. Glenn-Roundtree, communication strategy, and operations officer, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, II Marine Expeditionary Force.

Frontline PBS and ProPublica published reports alleging that Pistolis participated in the Unite the Right rally held August 12, 2017, in Charlottesville, Virginia while actively serving as a U.S. Marine. Pistolis belongs to a white supremacist group called the “Atomwaffen Division, a guarded neo-Nazi ensemble whose members claim they are prepping for a coming race war.

Pistolis received his current rank on April 1, 2017, four months before the Charlottesville rally, according to Glenn-Roundtree.

Pistolis boasted online August 12, 2017, after the rally and stated: “Today I cracked 3 skulls open virtually no damage to myself,” according to Frontline story.

Frontline reached out to Pistolis through email and phone calls, questioning his visit to Charlottesville and he denied being at the event.

The NCIS released a statement regarding this incident:

“2nd Marine Logistics Group is aware of an allegation pertaining to a Marine in an MLG unit potentially involved in a supremacist organization. The Naval Criminal Investigative Service has opened an investigation to determine the facts surrounding the allegations. Participants in extremist activities or organizations are inconsistent with Marine Corps values. 2nd MLG takes this allegation seriously and this matter is under investigation.”

According to Glenn-Roundtree, Pistolis‘ status with the Marine Corps has not changed.

Gleen-Roundtree says “No charges have been filed as an investigation is ongoing.”

VIDEO: Black Rose Tavern accused of kicking out Black man for charging phone

Published

on

A Jacksonville man says he was kicked out of a Midway Park bar Tuesday after he was trying to charge his phone. 

Jacksonville resident Kenneth Foster lost power at his home because of Hurricane Florence and needed to charge his phone, but when he went to Black Rose Tavern in Midway Park to charge it, he was kicked out.

“I left Hungry Howies to go to Black Rose Tavern to get a drink and I needed to charge my phone,” Foster said. “I saw children charging their phones.”

Foster said that when he asked the owner of Black Rose Tavern, John Bova, if he could charge his phone he was met with the reply that “this ain’t that type of bar”.

Bova, however, is claiming that Foster walked in the door, and, without asking, plugged in his phone.

“He walked in the door and plugged in his phone, and my wife who was the bartender walked over and asked him if she could help him and asked if he needed something to drink. He told her that he needed to charge his phone.”

Bova told News In Onslow that Foster began getting hostile with his wife, which is when he stepped in, told Foster that he could not charge his phone and informed him that he needed to leave.

Bova explained to Foster that they are a private club and that he cannot just walk into their place business and plug in his phone.

It was after being told to leave that Foster pulled out his phone and started recording.

Foster said Bova grabbed his phone and bruised his finger but he will not be pursuing criminal charges.

“I know the man racist,” Foster told News In Onslow.

The bar owner said that he is not racist and that his business is diverse.

Tuesday, officials in Onslow County told local residents that the American Red Cross would be feeding them in different locations throughout the county, but at two locations the non-profit never came.

Two of the locations, Richlands Library, and New River Shopping Center had people waiting nearly three hours for American Red Cross meals that never came and now the organization is saying it was a ‘big mistake’.

RHOA Kandi Burrus “The Lies!”

American Red Cross representative Charlotte Rodriguez told local reporters, “It was a big mistake that we should not have made.” 

It’s funny how the organization acknowledged their wrong but never apologized to the people they wronged.  Always want you to donate your money but have a hard time with integrity.
