A Reno Sparks Indian man and his family were attacked by neo nazis at a Fernley, Nevada, convenience store. Family members were beaten with a crowbar and baseball bats, and stabbed. The attackers, described as neo nazi skinheads, tried to cut off the victim's braid. The victim, Reno Sparks Indian Johnny Bonta, was then arrested because of the white assailants connection with police. Listen to his wife tell what happened. Bonta was jailed and denied medical treatment in jail. One of the attackers father is a retired Lyon County Sheriff officer. Fernley is an Indian bordertown, located between the Indian Nations of Pyramid Lake Paiute and Fallon Shoshone Paiute. UPDATE: Attackers in hate crime talked about it on Facebook.
