    Carnage in Charlottesville leaves 3 dead, 19 injured after white nationalist rally sparked violence, two crashes

    A car targeted and plowed into a crowd of protesters opposing a racist rally led by white supremacists in a Virginia college town on Saturday, leaving a 32-year-old woman dead and injuring at least 19 others.

    A Virginia State Police helicopter in the area also crashed miles away, killing two officers, officials said.

    The carnage in Charlottesville came during a whirlwind 24 hours in which a massive collection of white nationalists converged on the sleepy hamlet — leading to outbreaks of violence and a state of emergency being declared by the governor.

      3. From Maumee, Ohio. 25 miles southwest of Toledo.

      This guy is from the Toledo exurbs, in a very anti-Republican congressional district. Marcy Kaptur is his congresswoman. I’m pretty sure he did not vote for her.

        5. Disgusting, quelching free speech with violence and commiting murder.

        Horrible crimes.

          8. I can't understand what would drive a 20 year old to commit murder

      6. The murder of the young woman, all the injuries sustained, and the lives…..

      …of the officers killed in the copter crash are all to be laid directly at the feet of Donald Trump, for encouraging violence against non-Trump supporters ( something he did throughout his campaign and afterwards ), and at the feet of the Republican party, which if it cannot control Trump, then the GOP should at least be condemning these acts of violence.

      And all the evangelical “Christians” who support and encourage Trump now have innocent blood on their hands.

        17. That is a fucking stretch.

        If Trump is guilty, then Hollywood is ten times as guilty.

          28. Hollywood is an entertainment center. That's what they do.

          Trump is supposed to be the President. It is his place and duty, as previous Presidents did, to keep things calm and lawful. He has done nothing of the sort, and has actually encouraged his followers to be violent. Certainly you can see the difference there?

          And because he’s such a lousy President, that absolves him of any responsibility to keep the peace and protect all citizens?

            29. Hollywood and the media have been working at this for 60 or 70 years

            Surely you see the difference.

      7. How are cop's deaths related to this story?

      Never mind that they waited for hours to stop the clashes….

          12. That's what I thought.

          Nevermind that a young woman was killed by a white supremacist, let’s talk a about those cop’s that died….

            16. I believe they are tangentially related.

            Early reports were they were combing the countryside.

              20. The driver had been arrested hours before the crash.

              What, exactly, were they combing?

      10. And Trump, never one to miss an opportunity to remind us how great he is…

        11. Pathetic.

        Pathologically insecure jerk that he is, he has to reassure himself constantly that he’s ok.

        18. HE is the effing cause of this!

        His Justice Dept out to investigate discrimination against white students. This enabled these Hauptsturmführers.

        14. His shield also doesn't show he's a militant baking enthusiast, either.

        It’s a very poor replication of the fasces, which is the origin of the word, “fascist.”

          15. You sure he's not a "baking enthusiast"?

          I thought that’s what the crossed rolling pins symbolized.

          It goes well with the Tiki torch Nuremberg Luau Rally theme. 

          These folks are clowns…… but they’re DANGEROUS CLOWNS!

            26. LOL. That's why I said that.

            They look like rolling pins.

          21. No. Like Fawk Em pointed out above. These are fascis symbols.

          The jackass car murderer has his shield upside down so you can’t see the ax head in that one photo.

          You can see a better photo at this site.

              23. Sarchasm sometimes translate on the internets…….

              I get the joke now. 

              I read too much into your post because the murderer is affiliated with Christian Identity (Vanguard).

                  25. You're right…. "religion is not far removed"!

                  I saw some of those a-holes with biblical quotes on the back of their shirts.

        27. What a coward.

        Carrying a shield to this event proves he knew what he was doing was wrong, but that he still wanted to protect himself from being hurt.

        And then he drove down a group of people in the street protesting the rally being held in the first place.

        Despicable.
