We don’t know why they keep letting Max Misch go to violate the conditions of his release as he faces weapons charges, but here we are.
BENNINGTON, VT. — The problems continue to mount for White Nationalist Max Misch as he faces charges of violating the conditions of his bail while awaiting trial for allegedly violating a 2018 state law restricting the size of large-capacity ammunition magazines.
According to news reports, Misch, 38, the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations was assigned the complaint Memorial Day Weekend and detectives subsequently determined that he “violated conditions of release by approaching and speaking with a witness in a pending court case in which he is accused of traveling out of state and purchasing a firearms magazine in excess of Vermont capacity limits and bringing it back to Vermont.” The incident reportedly took place in a Wal-Mart that Friday, and Misch was arrested a day later at his home.
Misch is facing two counts going back to 2019 of violating a state law prohibiting large capacity firearms magazines for allegedly purchasing two 30-round rifle magazines in New Hampshire. If convicted, he could face up to a year in prison and a $500 fine on each charge. On June 1, Misch pleaded not guilty on the latest charge, and was released on his own recognizance despite the State asking for a cash bail amount of $200.
Misch, an Iraq war veteran originally from the Queens, NY community of Bayside, used his activity in the Stormer Book Club, a project of the neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer to create a campaign of terror against Kiah Morris who was the first black woman to be elected to the Vermont House of Representatives, even showing up in person to menace Morris. Kiah Morris resigned due to the harassment. He has a history of violence with his ex-wife accusing him strangling her, accusations that were eventually dismissed in court. This is not the first time he has been arrested since being released for his 2019 arrest, getting picked up on Aug. 30 for disorderly conduct after vandalizing a Black Lives Matter mural while it was being painted as he and others protested the creation of the mural. This and four other criminal cases were put on hold while an appeal on the firearm ammunition charges were pending in the Vermont Supreme Court, but that appeal had since been denied. No further information about the other cases is available at the time of this posting.
