Marine vet murdered because he was white.
Fond du Lac man committed, hate crime motorcycle crash
We are supporting Eric Toney for Attorney general. this got very little play from the media and no mention be the WI AG or Governor.
Statement from District Attorney Eric Toney:
"This was a horrific act of violence born out of hate and a mental illness. The defendant intentionally took the life of Phillip Thiessen because he was white and riding a Harley Davidson Motorcycle. Phillip was an incredible man that helped some of the most vulnerable in our society as a retired Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation - Special Agent, a former Fairfax Virginia Police Officer, and a United States Marine. Phillip worked on internet crimes against children and was incredibly proud of the work he did to help kids. Phillip spent his 2 years of retirement volunteering at the Fond du Lac Food Pantry and spending time with his daughter and grandkids. Everyday Phillip would remind his grandson: "Do the right thing and help people." We encourage anyone that knows someone experiencing a mental health crisis to work to find their loved one help."
Navarro, a Mexican American man from Wisconsin, intentionally crashed his pickup truck into Thiessen, 55, a white motorcyclist "because he stated he believed the rider of a Harley motorcycle would be white and racist."
