Gainesville man arrested at rally in Charlottesville, VA

13 Agosto 2017

Demonstrations were held all over California to show solidarity with the victim who was killed after a car plowed into a crowd of protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

He has been charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count related to leaving the scene.

Helicopters were reported flying overhead in Charlottesville as Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency after what is believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists in a decade.

Also Saturday night, the US States Attorney's Office for the Western District of Virginia and the Richmond Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a joint statement calling their probe a "civil rights investigation".

Police say his car ploughed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting against the white nationalist rally, killing the woman and injuring at least two dozen others.

"I have a message to all the white supremacists and the Nazis who came to Charlottesville today".

Late in the afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter crashed south-west of the city, leaving two troopers dead.

As of Saturday evening, Angela Taylor, a spokeswoman for the University of Virginia Medical Center, said five people from the crash were in critical condition, four in serious condition, six in fair condition and four in good condition. "We love our city".

Police said the helicopter was helping law enforcement officers monitor the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.

Boston Police said they will be developing security plans ahead of next Saturday's free-speech rally from 12-5 p.m. on the common. Santa Ana demonstrator Spencer Kelly said he has an adopted brother who is black and has felt uncomfortable since Trump won the election.
