Sam Johnson, neo-Nazi, cited for animal cruelty; abandoned pit bull
Sam Johnson, a neo-Nazi known in Austin for trying to recruit sympathizers by preying on xenophobes unhappy with foreign workers in meat processing plants, evidently has little sympathy for pets, too.

The Rochester Post-Bulletin is reporting that Johnson has been cited by police for abandoning a male pit bull after he moved out of a house in an Austin neighborhood. Police found the dog locked in a cage on Johnson's front porch, surround by its own feces, with no food or water.
Not surprisingly, the dog appeared vicious when approached and had to be subdued with a tranquilizer before being moved to the city pound.
