Marietta man tied to violence against black man in Charlottesville


A Marietta man boasted he “stomped some a**” during the violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Va., leading people across the nation to call for his arrest. 

Photos taken during the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville appear to show Michael Ramos, 33, as part of a group of white men caught beating 20-year-old DeAndre Harris.

“Nobody else was protecting us. Yeah, I’m glad I stomped some a** out there,” he said in the video. “You hurt my people I guess we hurt you back.”

A Cobb County Police spokesman said Friday the department has yet to receive a warrant for Ramos’ arrest either from federal authorities or local Virginia police.

Ramos has ties to a metro Atlanta militia group, but the leader of that group says he left months ago to join a more “activist” alt-right group.
