Leader of White Supremacist Group Arrested on Major CT Highway
His name is Kenneth Zrallack and he's a white supremacist.
According to an article on ctpost.com, Zrallack heads up the white supremacy group, the White Wolves and on Tuesday election day, he decided to stage a protest by walking along Interstate 95 in Stratford holding a three foot by five-foot black flag that read, "White Pride Worldwide" which brought traffic on the interstate to a slow crawl.
Zrallack and 35-year-old female companion, Lisa Holly were arrested and charged with negligent use of a highway by a pedestrian, breach of peace, and disorderly conduct. Personally, I'm 100% against the concept of white supremacy but that's just me. I am a staunch believer in the First Amendment to our Constitution which states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the
right of the people peacefully to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Zrallack's and Holly's attorney argued their arrest should be thrown out because they were exercising their right to free speech. Superior Court Judge, Tracy Lee Dayton agreed with the attorney but then told the couple:
You can hold your sign, just not on the highway.
You do have the Constitutional right of free speech but you're not allowed to break the law exercising that right. The two were released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. Back in December of 2009, the same white supremacy group unfurled a Nazi flag at a Menorah lighting in Fairfield.
