Michael Patrick Dawson was arrested around 1 p.m. between the Mayo Post Office and Mayo Elementary after violating probation related to his conviction on several charges, Neumann said. 

Neumann called Dawson "a fugitive" and said he was convicted of simple assault and a hate crime from an incident in Washington DC. 

"[Dawson] pulled a knife on a civilian in [Washington, DC], a cab driver, and told him, 'I'm going to kill you. I already killed your brother,'" Neumann said.

Neumann also said that Dawson is a member of the Arian Nation, a white supremecist organization. 

A Special Response Team assisted in Dawson's arrest because of the possibility that Dawson may have had weapons in his possession, Neumann said.

How about the police letting the principal know what was happening. The police obviously knew how about not letting the kids outside at all.What do you think? Oh by the way I dont think the police would be the ones to hurt the children.

I am the godforsaken racist hate crime committing nazis wife. This is complete bs. I am the one pictured in handcuffs while 3months pregnant after have an AR-15 in my face and thrown to the ground on my stomach and cuffed. My husband had surrendered with his hands up but these overzealous meathead cops still acted as though he was a child murdering terrorist who gets off on kicking puppies and old women. The crime he had violated probation on was committed probably 5 years ago and when he went to prison for it he was flagged as an "aryan brotherhood" member after he was stabbed in the chest by a BLACK inmate who .....surprise surprise...didnt get charged with a HATE crime. Now my husband has to live with that on his record because he made a foolish choice while black out drunk many years ago and threatened and got in a fight with BLACKS. If the races in his case were swapped and he was a black who got in a fight with a white...I would bet on my first borns life the term "hate crime" would never once be used. The system is quick to label someone and all you suckers are so quick to judge as if you're all angels and never messed up, your just sheep who blindly follow the herd and take all the bs the media dishes out as unfallible truth then on top of it but your own manipulations of the facts into the situation. My husbands best man at our wedding was not only BLACK but GAY as well. Yea, a racist prison gangmember is going to have a black homosexual standing at his side on one of the most important days of his life. You are all just as stupid, narrowminded and lacking the ability to know the truth before you pitch in your unwanted 2 cents. If anything were to happen to the kids who were allegedly at recess or whatever it would NOT have been the fault of my husband, me or our friend who was with us. It would have been the fault of one of those wanna-be mercenary, juiced up, pigheaded pigs who jumped the gun (no pun intended) trying to be a "hero". Fact: no weapons/guns or drugs were in the car. Fact: My husband had not committed a crime in a very long time besides missing appointments with his P.O Fact: he NEVER committed the crime out of a hate for blacks ... he just happened to be inebriated and it was a black man who happened to set him off when he was already in a foul mood. FACT: THE ONLY EFFING CHILD THAT WAS HURT WAS THE ONE THAT I MISSCARRIED 2 WEEKS LATER. Your falacies and failure to seek out the true story before you go on and on about "thank god a dangerous criminal is off the streets"..."oh my god, it was right by a school, good thing those poor children werent damaged due to this awful man" (as if we asked to have guns drawn on us by 10 US marshalls at that location) Oh and one more thing... he is not the racist one, the fact the system allows for any white who fights with or defends himself against a black person and ends up hurting them can be charged with a hate crime is the most racist and oppressive reality I can think of. And Jack Jameson or whoever you are... you dont know him at all fool. He sure as hell doesnt know who you are. Maybe you knew OF him or heard about him in high school when you werent too busy popping your zits or eating alone in the cafeteria, like so many of the high school "nerds/dorks/losers" as a high schooler would refer to your type, think you know so much about the people you saw in school everyday but you were invisible too.
