Virginia declares a state of emergency

13 Agosto 2017

Entertainment industry figures took to social media to condemn the hate speech and violence that erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, today as protestors and counter-protestors gathered in the city for a rally organised by white nationalist groups.

A 20-year old man was arrested on Saturday on second-degree murder charges, having allegedly crashed his car into a group of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia.

But instead of specifically criticizing members of the Ku Klux Klan, the white supremacists or the neo-Nazis who brought torches and bats to the rally, Trump blamed the unrest on "many sides".

Demonstrators in Charlottesville shouted anti-Semitic remarks at rallies Friday night and early Saturday, sparking clashes in the streets with opponents.

What started as a white supremacy gathering to protest the town removing a Confederate statue quickly turned violent as the supremacists and counter-protestors clashed in the Virginia town.

The incidents came hours after violent clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters amid rising tensions in the city.

John Stapleton, standing in for Andrew Castle, asked his listeners whether they feel Donald Trump is to blame for spreading hateful rhetoric. The driver was taken into custody, according to police. "Asked by a reporter in New Jersey whether he wanted the support of white nationalists, Trump did not respond".

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has urged investigators to investigate the crime as an incident of domestic terrorism. "People should clear the area to allow emergency medical personnel to respond", it said in a Facebook post.

She says the attack was a reminder that evil still existed in the world but she remained confident Americans would be united. The NTSB is sending investigators to the scene, he said.
