Five men took equality into their own hands when they attacked white supremacists with hammers and metal batons at a suburban Chicago bar. The attackers were part of an anti-racism group and are now in jail, but that doesn’t mean that the fight is over. The fight seems to continue online as word of the incident spreads – an incident that was supposedly linked to a feud between anti-racism groups and white supremacists.

The cyber-war went viral on Saturday when 18 hooded people raced into the Ashford House restaurant in Tinley Park and attacked a group of people who they believed had ties to a white supremacist organization.


Mayor Ed Zabrocki revealed that there was video footage of the fight, which lasted for several minutes and involved tables getting knocked over and chairs being tossed. Prosecutors estimate that the fight cost $15,000 in damage and caused injuries to several people, including three who were hospitalized and received staples to their heads.

It’s like you have someone from extreme left field and someone from extreme right field come to center field to fight — and Tinley Park was center field.

According to the Tinley Park Police Chief Steven Neubauer, the initial “victims” – white supremacists – admitted that they belonged to the Illinois European Heritage Association.

On the Hoosier Anti-Racism Movement website, there is a plea for money to defend the “Tinley Park Five.”

The Associated Press had tried to contact the group several times, but no messages have been returned. There is no number or website for the Illinois European Heritage Association.

Tinley Park police confirmed that two attackers were arrested on charges unrelated to the restaurant right. A North Dakota resident was arrested on a warrant for possession of child pornography, and a Texas resident was accused of possession of a weapon.

Stormfront, a white nationalist website, denounced the attackers as “raving maniacs” and “cowardly left wing thugs.” White Reference, another white nationalist group, said that the “anti-racist terrorists” carried out a “completely unprovoked assault on at least 20 white nationalists gathered for an economic summit.”

Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research for the Anti-Defamation League and tracks extremist groups, said that there is a history of these kind of confrontations.

This has all been part of the scene for decades. There is a long history of antagonism between these two groups. We obviously disapprove of the notion you have to confront them. That is positively counterproductive.

Police arrested the anti-racism group when they pulled over a red Dodge Neon and found dark hooded sweatshirts, scarves, gloves, knives, and two expandable batons in the car.

The men arrested include 20-year-old Dylan Sutherlin, 23-year-old Cody Sutherlin and 33-year-old Jason Sutherlin (all brothers), 22-year-old Alex Stuck, and 26-year-old John Tucker. All are form the Bloomington area of Indiana.

The men were recently charged in Cook County on felony charges of mob action, aggravated battery, and criminal damage to property. The men were held for between $175,000 and $250,000.

The police are still searching for 13 others involved in the attack, but investigators said that the incident had no connection to the NATO summit being held nearby.
