Charlottesville riots Driver hits several people

By then, a "Unite the Right" rally planned for noon - originally meant to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in the city's Emancipation Park - had been cancelled as Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency. A gray vehicle with OH license plates hit a crowd near the city's downtown mall, killing a 32-year-old woman.

Part of what made the case become a federal one was that the chief suspect, 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr, crossed state lines, travelling from OH to Virginia.

James Alex Fields Jr., who is now in police custody, allegedly plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting the white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing a 32-year-old woman, hurting dozens more and ratcheting up tension.

"Go home. You are not patriots. These were white supremacists and this was domestic terrorism". You are not wanted in this great commonwealth, shame on you! Virginia state troopers were killed when a helicopter patrolling the scene crashed outside of Charlottesville.

The event had drawn the members of the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis, as well as movement leaders including David Duke and Richard Spencer. Groups in Santa Ana, downtown Los Angeles, Oakland and other parts of the state said they are appalled by the displays of violence in Virginia and say President Donald Trump has not done enough to denounce it.

The helicopter went down close to where right-wing groups and counterprotesters converged Friday night and Saturday.

Although a few cars were held up by the march, police say the demonstration is peaceful and there have been no arrests.

President Donald Trump said hate and division have no place in America.

The Saturday rally was organized by a far right group to protest a plan to remove a statue of General Robert E. Lee and call for the protection of Southern Confederate monuments.

Duke, who has long espoused racist and anti-Semitic views as well as conspiracy theories (including denial of the Holocaust), attended the "Unite the Right" rally on Saturday, calling the event a "turning point".
