One person was killed on Saturday when a auto slammed into a crowd in Virginia after clashes at a gathering of white nationalists who oppose plans to remove the statue of a Confederate general from a public park, officials said. Police said Lt. H. Jay Cullen of Midlothian and Trooper-pilot Berke M.M. Bates of Quinton were killed in the crash.
In May, a torch-wielding group that included prominent white nationalist Richard Spencer gathered around the statue for a nighttime protest, and in July, about 50 members of a North Carolina-based KKK group traveled there for a rally, where they were met by hundreds of counter-protesters. One person died and at least 26 others were sent to the hospital after a vehicle plowed into a group of peaceful anti-racist counterprotesters amid days of race-fueled marches and violent clashes. The driver was subsequently arrested, and the incident is now being treated as a "criminal homicide".
State police tweeted that some in the crowd were using pepper spray. But Donald Trump had little to say-or tweet-about it.
