National Alliance Activist Michael Carothers (AKA Michael Weaver) Defends Himself Against Black Carjackers, Now Being Charged With Aggravated Assault

Update April 28th, 2013: Michael Carothers finally released from prison, but faces the possibility of a trial because he withdrew his guilty plead. Updated post HERE.

Update July 1st, 2012: Michael Carothers seeking to withdraw guilty plea because banishment provision would leave him homeless; see updated post HERE.

Update May 18th 2012: The Council of Conservative Citizens reveals that Michael Carothers accepted a plea bargain on November 15th, 2011 after the judge ruled that an incident from 1999 could be admitted as evidence. Although prosecutors asked for four years in prison, the judge sentenced him to one year.

Billy Roper calls our attention to the plight of Michael Weaver, a National Alliance member who he said is being prosecuted for having successfully defended himself against two black carjackers by using Mace down in Columbus, Georgia. However, the accompanying media story from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer identifies him as Michael Carothers, so I will use that name in this post. He does use the name Michael Weaver on his White Information Network blog. The link to Roper's website is no longer available, and has been deactivated.

Carothers was indicted and arrested on Tuesday August 23rd, 2011 on aggravated assault charges and is currently being held without bond at the Muscogee County Jail. However, the Ledger-Enquirer published a somewhat different version of events. Police claim that on December 4th, 2010, Carothers slowly pulled up in his car alongside a 26-year-old black man who was walking on Rose Hill Street in Columbus, When the man got on the sidewalk and kept walking, Carothers allegedly stopped his car, got out, sprayed pepper spray on the man’s neck, returned to his car and drove away.

Carothers was arrested about an hour later and initially charged with a misdemeanor simple battery charge. However, a Columbus police detective familiar with Carothers -- more specifically, with Carothers' National Alliance activism -- contacted Columbus Solicitor General Ben Richardson about the case, saying he should take a serious look at the misdemeanor charge. Subsequently, Senior Assistant District Attorney Don Kelly (the same Don Kelly who was arrested for DUI on December 4th, 2010) took the case from State Court prosecutors after examining the accusations, and upgraded the charges to felony aggravated assault. If convicted, Carothers could face anywhere from one to 20 years in prison.

Now think about this a moment. Here's a guy who's not been in any prior trouble with the law, and who is a white racialist activist. He's known in the community for passing out pro-White literature. If you look at his picture, you'll see he has hair on his head, and no tattoos. Doesn't look much different than a typical Mormon missionary. Are you going to tell me that he drove up alongside a black man, and, without provocation, got out of his vehicle, maced him, then got back in and drove away? Uh-uh...I ain't buying it. There's no logic to it. They're targeting Carothers because of his political activism.

I waded through the 432 comments posted to the Ledger-Enquirer story. Most of them were abominably chatty and/or incoherent, but they revealed that Michael Carothers has actually been in court on at least two separate occasions between his arrest and now, before it was bumped up to a grand jury and superior court. Here was one semi-coherent comment:

ellenhorn August 26th:
This was the biggest bunch of B.S. The movers and shakers around here are more racist than Michael Weaver. They bumped his charge up, as it was only simple battery. Two young men had cracked glass beer bottles on him. The fellow who somehow was close enough to Michael to get sprayed didn't want medical treatment. The other one wanted nothing to do with it legally; as there was Michael and two other men involved. A local gang task manager had this kicked up to a more severe offense upstairs to Superior Court, and convened a grand jury. Mr. Weaver, or Michael was taken out at gun point from his home for a 'bench warrant'. He had already been to court twice. He was never given a court date for this 'bench warrant' . This is illegal!!! The fellow he allegedly sprayed was in 'jail'...

It appears that Billy Roper got the story right.

So, the question to be asked (which wasn't) is, "WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP?"

If he were Jewish, the ADL, SPLC, and all the rest would be contacting their 'links and ties' in the area, to decry this 'racial profiling' and 'anti [sic] semitism.'

What do WE, as White Americans, tired of the bias and bigotry in the FEDGOV, do to utterly clog the 'system' with our protests, letters, calls, emails?

This is what is ALWAYS missing from stories such as this. IF we do not hang together, we shall assuredly hang separately, as the Founding Fathers said.

I thought that the NA had all these millions of dollars they used to boast about, per resistance records - why doesn't Gliebe HELP one of his own? What has Roper got to do with being his defender, except maybe trying to look like a good guy and put his name out there. What did Roper get vote-wise last election, something like eight stinking votes. He's a non-entity.

Why hasn't the ANP helped? They have all those "pledge paying suppoters", oh, that's right, the ANP only engages in income generation activitis, i.e. you pay, they play.

We have a fund raiser for Michael to get a better attorney because we all know how public pretenders are. People are being very supportive. Thanks to everyone! The pal Pay account is bama1004@gmail. Please get the word out. Billy Roper realizes the injustice of this case and he knows the real truth!

Those NA Millions are probably long gone. I guess the record company is still going, don't know how it's doing though. I figure sales have dwindled, since a lot of the customers from the 90s and early 2000s have grown up and moved on from that "scene."

I don't know if the magazine is published anymore, Im sure they sell a few copies of the "Turner Diaries" here and there, from the million they have in the warehouse.

As for membership dues, well, those are probably down to a trickle. Don't know why anyone would get involved with NA now.

Sadly, the organization pretty much ended with Pierce's death 9 years ago. Classic pyramid structure where the top man died and the rest tumbled down.

Hmm, let's see here. Aint this the same michael coruthers that did prison time some years back in georgia for a similar incident and was then placed on parole. Tsk tsk tsk. Someones in trouble with da law AGAIN. LMAO

Yes, A detective by the name of CATHY BUSH was behind this and was responsible for what happened to him when he was 18 years old. Cathy Bush is prejudiced against him because of his political beliefs. Cathy Bush has stalked Michael for over 15 years. Recently she tried to get him fired from his job and when he went to file a complaint,He got yelled at and told to leave. I will speak to you in ebonics so you can understand me,Keep laughing DAT a** off an sheit mufugga. He will be out very soon. Oh and BTW, Learn to spell his last name correctly. It's Carothers not coruthers

Ohhh...I see..Det Bush was the Big Bad Police who made caruthers go astray. It wasn't by his own actions, so there's no way he should be held accountable, I understand now. The Police doing their job "keeping the white-man down" hmm it all makes perfect sense now. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. Bad police, bad police.

So what your saying is that a Police Detective (this Cathy Bush) "plotted" or conspired with the court system to "get" an 18 year old for his "political views" (HaHaHa. Man she's off the chain going after a big time 18 year old tuff guy like "caruthers". Spent 15 years of her career chasing this "public enemy" huh? Wow. She's a hard core PoPo. And she became sooo incensed by "caruthers" that she became prejudiced againt him. Man that's low down. BTW, what's up with the "ebonics". Oh I see you Ass-U-Me I'm black. (Dat so funny). BTW D-A I'm still LMAO gnomesayin.

Down to the end an unseeing eye. His might has no bounds. Blessings is what he after. He all now but seeking laughter. A son to his cause.=)

On December 4th, 2010 , Michael Weaver was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault. Mr. Weaver's contention throughout, has been that his car was approached by 2 men, whom he perceived to be approaching in an intimidating fashion, walking in the middle of the road for the purposes of “carjacking”. In response to this, he used mace to defend himself and his property. That an incident took place, is not disputed by Mr. Weaver.
The “victims”, however, claim that Mr. Weaver approached them unprovoked and attacked them. It should be noted that the victim is known to have lied to police in prior dealings with them and has a history of felony offenses.
Mr. Weaver showed up to court for trial, but the “victim” was in jail himself. In addition, the arresting officer did not show up either, so the trial was delayed. This happened 2 more times in the months that followed.
Eventually a detective named Cathy Bush learned of the incident and contacted the assistant DA and shortly after this, it was upgraded to a felony hate crime. Ms. Bush has known of Mr. Weavers involvement with A White Civil Rights group and we believe she is prejudiced against him because of his political beliefs.
As there are no witnesses to the incident, other than the unreliable alleged victim himself and his friend, and the significant differences in the two versions of events, Michael being charged with a hate crime is a stretch at best.

"WOW",man that Cathy Bush is one ruthless EmEffer. Imagine Bush or anyone for that matter, having the audacity, the gumption, to launch such an unwarranted attack on such an upstanding,law abiding, peace loving private citizen like Michael. What's the world coming too? Man that Cathy Bush is off da chain. LMAO (still)

kayk1004 said...

Yeah,Cathy Bush is one ugly woman..Inside and out!
Here is a comment made about her by Michael's Father..He is so funny!
It's all true!
David Carothers here:
Much of my son's mifortunes were exacerbated by a Columbus police detective named Cathy Bush. She's nurtured an almost pathological hatred of my son for almost 15 years now. My son and I have complained about this woman's unprofessional behavior many a time, but, alas, always to no avail. We were treated quite rudely, even threatened with jail. Bush's superiors are loath to investigate her conduct lest she "spill the beans" on matters that the Cop-Shop would prefer to remain hidden from public view. Anyway, detective Bush has moved to Seale, Ala. now, where, as is her habit, she is holding down a bar stool in some honky-tonk around there. When she lived in Columbus she could be found most nights getting snockered at Soho's Bar and Grill, where, stumbling around after too many beers, she would dance with various women. Later, when she had had her fill, she would crank up her unmarked police cruiser and drive home, besotted to the gills. My but a fine specimen of a police officer she was. Should you have the misfortune to encounter her, take the precaution of wearing sun-glasses or otherwise shielding your eyes, for she is, indeed an abominable sight to behold. Father Time takes his cruel toll on all of us, of course, but He has been especially cruel to her. Once a reasonably attractive woman, years of severe alcohol abuse have ravaged her face to the point where children scream upon glancing at her. Her face is a misshapen, bloated mass, from which peer bleary, blood-shot eyes. As the crowning glory of her visage, she boasts more chins than a Chinese phone book. Should said chin grow any longer, she will be in danger of tripping over them. This, of course, would pose a severe tradgedy to the law-enforcement community, to womanhood, and to Humanity in general. Trip Cathy, trip!!

Hi, LorLor:
Thanks for your usual supportive post. Michael is lucky to have you in his corner.
Yeah, you're right: this lunatic cop (Bush doesn't deserve to be called a cop, really, since she's a disgrace to an otherwise noble profession) HAS beeen stalking Michael for many years. She probably goes to bed plotting against him, even while she's in bed with Billy Bob in Seale, Ala. UGG!! Never mind: I can't imagine any man, however desperate, who would lower himself to "doing" her.
I forgot to mention in a previous post that she squeals around in a red pickup truck. To you motorists out that way--be very careful if you see a red pickup around about. If it's hurtling toward you in the wrong lane, it's likely Bush, smashed to the gills. Bush, though, may be dissappointed because her daugther ended up plying her trade as a stripper/hooker at our local strip bar, the Platinum Club. Who knows?
But then, Bush may be angsting over the fact that, despite 30 years or so at the Cop Shop, she has attained only the lowly rank of an appointed corporal. Apparently, her superiors don't quite like her work performance. Perhaps she'd do better joining her daughter in her trade in the "world's oldest profession."

Newbie here, but sometimes we newbie's are very unbiased. No matter what someone may think of Michael...even right or wrong...he has been putting himself at risk getting the facts out. It makes us Whites look bad. If he is good enough to put out the literature from 'where ever' he is still good enough to defend. Actually, that Kathy Bush has stalked him, even as a kid. She may have had an issue with his dad too, but to be fair, she really has 'done her job.' I have watched all this from a distance for years, perferring to spend my time alone at the river. Point being...this Daryyl Jenkins is laughing about this. If one in some kind of movement thinks Michael has the big head, or wrong motives, 'they' need to call him on it; but for the time being, it looks pretty bad for us to be having our britches blowing in the breeze for everyone of them to laugh at. For this reason too, I have offered my support, and at very great cost. If someone feels the need to 'have a word with Carother's' let them do so out of the eyes of the enemy. When I am not in the tree's I can see the forest, and this looks horrible. He is on your page and is being laughed at by the enemy of your enemy. I do not understand infighting in groups and do not judge them; but when a group has something like this in common with another, one should think before letting their own enemy laugh.

I am Ellen Horn. This L.E. stuff was bouncing around so fast, I may have made a few mistakes. There were two guys. One ended up in the can on a drug offense...Troy or Travis Parsons. Mike went to state court twice, and on the third time was told it was over. The victim was never brought into court by the jail authorities. Cathy Bush found out that this involved Michael. Now she has hated him and his dad for MANY a year. She is weird, even tried to dance with Mike one night at Soho's bar and grill, but ended up dancing with a woman instead. Anyway, they convened a grand jury at her request. They gave it a true bill. Without his knowledge, Michael was arrested at home (which put my grand dog in great jeopardy..he likes Mike) People have to realize what a dunk town this is. They do what they want to here...Columbus style. The so called victim did not want or have medical treatment. I saw Michael after this this happened. He came to my apartment looking for his dad. He was pretty shook up and not wanting to show it. I left the room. This whole thing is pretty crazy. I saw the article in the L.E. and started commenting. It snowballed something awful. One night I actually stayed up until after 8:00 a.m. commenting to this bull. Cathy Bush had Mike arrested at 19 for putting out his literature. She said he was on school grounds. I doubt it, wasn't there, but school was closed anyway. She is a nut, a very ambitious nut. I had the displeasure of encountering her decades ago; yes, she is sadistic and a nut job; still I am sure the cop shop cannot get rid of this woman who knows all the dirt down there. She may also have the capability of breaking up marriages, as I have said in the L.E. So, she may not REALLY be about sh*t, but they have to cow tow to her for the above reasons. Mikes girlfriend is really trying to defend him. I know she is disappointed in the results; still, it begs the question of why you would attack her, even in the slightest. I don't know a soul on here, but it seems that for the sake of some kind of pride for the cause at least, that you not publicly hang them out to dry. Maybe you folks had a problem with Michael...I have no idea. Was it the big head or something similiar? It seems that no matter what it is, that you could have some pride in a shared cause...forget the leader or non leader or whatever of some organization, and help him. If he does have some disdain for this group, then he may be surprised in it, if it stays true to its real cause. I cannot make sense of it. If any of you think Mike needs to be called down or have a beef with him, then call him on it; but, he is a brother in your cause. Oh, sorry...details. The other man...whatever you call 'em Black-black-negro-whatever...he ran away. They made no effort to find him. The police report was woefully inaccurate and listed Michael's age as 2. Now, I don't know if that will get a laugh from some folks here or not; never been here, but it must be that we deal with our own. Yes, I am 54 and old fashioned or whatever...but it boggles my mind that with all the trouble he is in ...and maybe up to 20 years of it, there would be some support for him here or on any group with these objectives in mind. I have no problem with anyone pointing out anything I have said that may be weird or off tone or whatever...I had to deal with L.E. and would pull out anything I thought I needed to. I know that more than the 'posters' read those posts. I wish you all the best in your efforts. I have always hung back from groups because of what I see now; but unfortunately, I do see now where Whites do have a BIG problem, and it is growing worse. Well, just my response. I don't have an account here, but I am at bonniebender52@yahoo.com.

Police State Amerika: The People's Republic of Columbus,Georgia.-By David Carothers

Are Americans a free people or are they not, that is the question. Do Americans still have the right to petition their government for redress of grievances, or do they not?
These questions were answered on the morning of March 10 when this writer received a knock on his door. Outside stood two men, one clad in civilian attire, the other in the uniform of a Muscogee County sheriffs deputy. The first deputy was grasping a small stack of envelopes. "We need to have a word with you sir," he said.
The envelopes contained copies of an article I had written for The First Freedom, an article that was published in the December, 2013 edition of this alternative newspaper. Almost 200 copies of this article were made, and subsequently mailed, to every judge in Columbus, as well as all 10 city council members. The article recounted the exploits and travails of then-Columbus, Georgia-based white rights activist Michael Weaver, and was juxtaposed with the story of Jeffrey Foxx, a black racist rogue Columbus police corporal who resigned from the police department in May, 2013 amid charges of racial profiling and the violation of the civil rights of white citizens. While on patrol in the northern part of Columbus, Foxx told a female friend to whom he was talking on his cell phone: "They make me work these white areas, somebody's going to pay the price." He added: "I'm hooking these white folks up with tickets."
Although Foxx violated several state and federal laws via his targeting of white citizens, he was never prosecuted.
The two-tiered system of justice that prevails in Columbus, Georgia treated Michael Weaver much differently. Weaver's politically incorrect activism had for years been a thorn in the side of--a source of frustration to--local law enforcement and other Columbus power-brokers. They eagerly awaited their chance to silence him, put an end to his activism by whatever means necessary.
Their chance came late one afternoon when Weaver, sitting in his car after leaving a friend's house, was accosted by two black thugs who attempted to carjack his vehicle. Weaver sprayed one of the thugs with pepper spray, then fled the scene. He returned to his friend's house about an hour later, where he was arrested by a black cop who entered the house without a warrant. Weaver was charged with simple battery, a misdemeanor. The "victim" sustained no injuries from the spray and declined medical treatment. Weaver's bond was low, and he was released from jail a few hours later. He was assigned to appear in State Court the following month.
The power-brokers who befoul Columbus had other plans for Weaver, though. At the urging of Cathy Bush, a white female police detective who had hated Weaver for years, his misdemeanor case was referred to the district attorney's office. Weaver now faced a felony aggravated assault charge.
Weaver's hearings before Superior Court Judge Bobby Peters on Nov. 14 and 15 of 2011 were a Soviet Union-style travesty--mockery--of justice. Weaver's public defender, Robin King, told him that his case was a slam-dunk, an easy win even for a first-year law student. She and her co-counsel, Ray lakes, were eager to go to trial. Judge Peters and the prosecuting attorney, Michael Craig, were not. They knew they had a weak case at best. They knew that both of Weaver's attackers had long criminal records, and were on felony probation at the time of the
attack. They knew, too, that even the testimony of then-Columbus-based Rabbi Jeffrey Salkin would be of little actionable value. It is not illegal to conduct an online debate with an opponent. Salkin now resides in the area of West Orange, New Jersey, where he heads that state's chapter of the infamous Anti-Defamation League ( ADL ).
