#Repost @orrincwrd ・・・ #problemreactionsolution #orderoutofchaos #greaterisraelproject #Charlottesville: #Virginia governor #TerryMcAuliffe says police failure to control protest due to militia's 'better equipment' The violence at the weekend white supremacist rally resulted in one death and multiple injuries Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has said one of the reasons the police failed to control the violence during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville was because militia members at the rally were armed with "better equipment" than the state police themselves. “It’s easy to criticise, but I can tell you this, 80 per cent of the people here had semiautomatic weapons," Mr McAuliffe said. Several members of militia groups, seen wearing tactical gear and carrying assault rifles, were marching from the early morning to Emancipation Park where the rally was supposed to take place to protest the removal of a statue of Civil War Confederate General Robert E Lee. On the other side of town, counter-protesters comprised of faith leaders, groups like #BlackLivesMatter and Showing Up For Racial Justice, and others gathered as well. The governor defended the police in what he called "a very delicate situation". Mr McAuliffe said the tragic death of #HeatherHeyer, 32, a peaceful counter-protester who died as a result of a car being driven into the crowd, could not have been stopped. The alleged driver of the vehicle, #JamesAlexFieldsJr, 20, is in police custody on charges relating to Ms Heyer's death and injuring up to 35 people. He was denied bail at his first court hearing. #BrianMoran, Virginia’s secretary of public safety and homeland security, said he saw from a post at a downtown bank that there were sporadic fights until people began throwing water bottles, smoke bombs, and using pepper spray. Attendees told the newspaper that police waited to intervene. #JasonKessler, the organiser of the rally, claimed police "exacerbated the violence" and were "underequipped for the situation" in a statement.

#Neo-Nazi #ChristopherCantwell puts dirt on #TrayvonMartin situation and #MichaelBrown. He says it's "Just a little #black ass hole behaving like a savage". He was one of the “Unite the Right” Charlottesville marchers interview by Vice during the situation in Charlottesville. Now look at him. He released a rambling video of himself discussing the fact that a warrant was issued for his arrest. “I’m terrified you’re going to kill me, I really am,” he ain't talking shit now. He's getting exactly what he deserve, period. #stateofemergency#staywoke#charlottesville #riot#white#supremacy#nationalist#trump#news#protest#government#cnn#fox#TerryMcAuliffe#emergency#state#davidduke#virginia#socialmedia#media

Also on Saturday more tragedy hit home for me and so many more: During the protests Va State Police were providing aide for those brave officers down on the ground with arial shots and coverage on Tv for all the world to see, but after the violence a Va State police helicopter sadly crashed in #albemarlecountyva near #charlottesvilleva , killing the 2 Va state troopers onboard, an eyewitness said the chopper flipped over before crashing in a wooded area near a golf course, the 2 ID troopers were lieutenant H Jay Cullen and trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates who both had ties to Va Gov. #terrymcauliffe ,the community has mourned their loss and they will be honored soon, there police cruisers have been placed outside the police station they worked at and have been covered with balloons, cards, flowers, messages and so much more, tonight my heart goes out to their families, this is a loss for the whole community, Let's take a stand to end violence and keep our people, officers and everyone safe, VA HAS NO PLACE FOR HATE 💙🚔😭🚁🙏🏼❤️ #love #RIP #prayersforcharlottesville

Over the weekend true chaos and hatred irrupted in MY STATE: A planned alt right rally called the "Untie the Right" rally took place on Saturday after an evening a torch marching on the #UVA campus Friday, but what occurred on Saturday was not planned, as the white supremacists began to come to the #robertelee statue that was planned to be taken down, counter protesters clashed causing the crowd to grow and violence against each other to grow, Va Gov. #terrymcauliffe called a State Emergency for police and others like the national guard to intervene, but as it escalated, terror stuck, around 11 a man now ID as an Ohio man facing murder charges rammed his car intentionally into the counter protesters, injuring over 19 and killing 32 year old Heather Heyer, who was honored today and my heart and prayers go out to her family and friends💜,Now it's my turn, STOP THIS SENSELESS ACT OF VIOLENCE ALL OVER OUR COUNTRY, Yes I Believe and know that what trump said was correct, "Both sides" are to blame, cause both will never and have never seen eye to eye, I feel that the confederate flag should not be flying but in a history museum where it belongs, that time was a black eye in American History, but I feel and see no problem with a statue, I'm here to denounce any and all white nationalists groups, Neo-Nazis and anyone who wants to spread hate, in order for peace and love we have to begin to see each other for who we are not what color or creed or religion or etc we are, We are all human and it's time to start acting like civil humans, #loveconquershate I can say so much more but simply tonight yet again #WHEREISTHELOVE ,❓❓❓❤️🙏🏼😭🚔🚨🚙✊️🇺🇸❓❓❓ #love #RIP #prayersforcharlottesville

Clip of #TakiyaThompson getting arrested and taking part in the toppling of a #Confederate #statue in #Durham. This video shows people pulling down the statue with a rope and Takiya explaining why she took part in climbing on it and taking it down. She says "#Klan and #white #supremacy have been collaborating. So what we did not only was it right, it was just. I did the the right thing. Everyone who was there, the people did the right thing. People will continue to keep making right choices until every confederate statue is gone. Until white supremacy is gone. The statue is where it belongs." #stateofemergency#staywoke#charlottesville #riot#white#supremacy#nationalist#trump#news#protest#government#cnn#fox#TerryMcAuliffe#emergency#state#davidduke#virginia#socialmedia#media
