Court documents in a federal court case show that an assistant prosecutor in Collierville wrote a social media post that praised white nationalists as "good God-fearing patriots," The Commercial Appeal reports. He also referred to white nationalists from the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests as "the good guys." Prosecutor Mike Cross' statement was introduced as evidence during the recent civil trial for Mike Goza, a skilled technician for Memphis Light, Gas and Water. Goza was fired after making controversial remarks related to a fight over Confederate statues, and has sued to get his MLGW job back. In a deposition, Goza described Cross as a friend. Goza said he attended a rally on behalf of Confederate statue preservation because Cross asked him to do it.
