Knoxville (WVLT) - The man at the center of a rally protesting media coverage of a local double murder appeared in court Monday morning.
Alex Linder answered to charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, vandalism, and assault on a police officer during the may 26th rally.
He pleaded not guilty.
Linder organized the rally to support his belief that the murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom are racially motivated, and that the murders have not received enough national media coverage.
All the suspects are black, the victims are white.
Linder will next appear in court on July 24th.
