Charlottesville Tries To Pick Up Pieces After Day Of Deadly Unrest

Woman Troopers Killed After White Supremacist Rally

Her comments came as other Republican governors, like Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval, denounced violence in Charlottesville linked to a white nationalist rally.

Three people were killed and 19 others injured during a white nationalist rally in the U.S. state of Virginia, turning a day of violent demonstrations into a tragedy, the media reported.

The driver has been identified as James Alex Fields, 20, of OH, according to CNN. The goal of the controversial event was to unify the far-right wing and "affirm the right of Southerners and white people to organize for their interests", according to its Facebook page. "Having watched the horrifying video of the auto deliberately crashing into a crowd of protesters, I urge the Department of Justice to immediately investigate and prosecute this grotesque act of domestic terrorism", the statement said. Terry McAuliffe said there's no place in America for white supremacists and Nazis.

The Associated Press, who spoke to the driver's mother, quotes her as saying that she didn't know her son was going to a white supremacist rally.

A white supremacist from OH has been charged with murder after he rammed his vehicle into a crowd of peaceful protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday (12 August) and killed a woman.

"Sometimes, there are people trying to sound self-righteous when really, the president made it extremely clear - all of us condemn this horrifying tragedy", Franks said.

President Trump responded to the incident with a speech where he placed blame on "many sides" for the violence and bigotry that occurred Saturday in Charlottesville.

Two other deaths are connected to the alt-right rally: A helicopter affiliated with State Police crashed outside of Charlottesville, killing the pilot and its passenger. The rally had been called to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee, but also served as a rallying cry for the far right.

"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis", Trump wrote in a two-part tweet Sunday morning.
