Inman, Wayne

Wayne Inman of Billings MT braved threats from aryan supremacists and lost his job as Billings’ police chief for speaking out against discrimination. After an aryan attack on a Jewish home, thousands of Billings residents—Jews and non-Jews alike—responded by placing menorahs in their windows, despite the fear that they might also become targets.
