    Here is the James Fields that wrote about being a Hillary supporter...I took a screenshot in case it's removed or deleted. The middle initials are different as is the photo.

    Even if Trump said what the liberals wanted him to say, they would still find fault with something...just like the conservatives always found fault with Obama...just the way it is.

    Yeah, it looks like the left are down on him for a number of things. What he did say is that we have no room for white supremists which should have done the trick but no, not gonna happen. BLM, another terrorist group, was also there but again, no arrests were made.

    What I believe should have been said was that the only group, whether we agree with them or not, that had any right to protest was the initial permitted group protesting the destruction of the monument.
    Where they apparently went really wrong was when they lit up the tiki torches. Perhaps solar lights would have been better.

    True - they should be made to hold their demonstrations on different days
    We have those over here that are paid to burst in on demonstrations, the world is a crazy place :(

    I think this was a case of protesters protesting the original protesters...but the end result is the same...somebody gets killed.
    The original protest was about the removal of a statue of General Lee....I think. I'm not an expert on the south..have never even visited any southern states. I'd like to some day, though.

    If I got this wrong...I'm sure someone can correct me.

    That seems to be exactly what happened here as well, @Patsy Faye . The first group was peacefully (and legitimately) protesting the removal of one of our historical statues. They didn't cause any trouble; but the second group of "anti-protesters" came in, and these were the armed and dangerous ones that Bobby mentioned, and they are responsible for the death from driving a car into the crowd of original protesters, killing one and injuring the others.
    Then , a police helicopter crashed (for unknown reasons) nearby, so the headlines are now making this all look like it was the fault of the original peaceful protesters.
    I am thinking that (since it has happened here before) that the violent anti-protesters were probably , at least in part, funded to be there.

    Black Lives Matter supporters chanting Black Lives Matter, yes. Now, it's yet to be established if they were his target or whether it was random. They are charging him with 1st degree manslaughter instead of murder because it isn't known as of yet if his act was premeditated. If it's proven it wasn't premeditated then chances are it was a random act even though the news is saying he is a white supremist.
    Either way, he not only rammed them, he stopped, threw his car into reverse and tried to hit them again.

    I think that the guy that drove the car was someone who probably sided with the white supremacist group but I don't think he was with that group...just someone who got mad about the counter protesters and decided to get in his car and plow into them.

    But I may be wrong...there was violence on both sides that I'm seeing....they clashed.

    The fact that his Mother was unaware of her son's views, is not unusual
    I hope he never see's the light of day

    The mother has little to do with this story in my opinion. I think this happened because the two sides clashed and an unstable person went crazy.

    When there are two opposing sides on the same streets, there's going to be injuries. Sadly this went too far, it's usually rock and bottle throwing etc,
