'Many sides' to blame for Virginia violence: Trump

Lunes, 14 Ago, 2017

The 32-year-old woman died and 19 others were injured after the car rammed into a group of anti-white nationalist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia. One of those currently behind bars is James Alex Fields, 20, of Maumee, Ohio, who was arrested on suspicion of plowing his car into a crowd of counter-protesters and was charged with second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and failing to stop at the scene of a crash that resulted in a death.

Two Virginia State Police officers who were assisting in the response to the violence surrounding a planned white nationalist rally in Charlottesville died Saturday afternoon after their helicopter crashed seven miles southwest of the city.

But President Trump has been criticised by many other politicians - including some from his own party - for not being firmer on the violence. His remarks brought many reactions online from Republicans as well as Democrats, with many calling out the president for seemingly refusing to single out white supremacists.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said President Donald Trump needed to more explicitly condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

The effort, which started late Saturday night, included a public invitation through a newly-created Facebook page called "Stand Against White Supremacy". "And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favor with". Like every institution, the scientific community has the responsibility to reject the legacy of racial oppression that still haunts us today, and get to work for justice.

She urged the students and university staffers to avoid the rally and physical confrontation.

Both groups threw punches and pushed each other as police arrived to break up the clash.

The rally was held to condemn a decision by the city to remove a statue of General Robert E Lee, a Confederate commander during the Civil War.

Photos shared to Twitter show people tossed in the air near cars. This kind of hatred that is grounded really in ignorance. "It's been going on for a long time in our country".

As Bloom was told about the allegations against her son, she told reporters that Fields' has a black friend.

"This day will not define us", Signer said.
