Charlottesville: Chopper crash near white supremacist rally claims 2 lives

MORE: Why is Charlottesville ground zero for white supremacists? A group of protesters also gathered in San Francisco.

Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer said he was disappointed the white nationalists had descended on his town and blamed President Donald Trump for inflaming racial prejudices with his campaign past year.

A United States mother has been told live on camera that her son is accused of ploughing his auto into peaceful protesters in Virginia, killing one woman and injuring dozens. 20, has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of a 32-year-old woman.

Two Virginia state troopers were killed Saturday afternoon in a helicopter crash authorities said was linked to a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. "My message is clear: we are stronger than you. Go home. You are not wanted in this great commonwealth", McAuliffe said at a press conference Saturday.

"There were just a few cars that counter-protesters were blocking", the man said.

Matsuyama tied for PGA C'ship lead after 2 rounds
Canadian Graham DeLaet eagles the par-four 14th and par-five 15th to surge to the edge of contention. Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy's one-over 72 left him 10 shots off the lead on two over.

When asked to clarify what the president meant by "many sides", a White House official said Trump "was condemning hatred, bigotry and violence from all sources and all sides". One counter-protester died and several others were injured after a driver plowed into a crowd. "You're talking about people who are saying that hate's not okay, kindness matters, and then they get killed for it", Detwiler said.

White nationalists and members of the so-called "alt-right" at a Unite the Right rally are engaged in violent clash with counterprotesters on August 12, 2017, near Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, Va., where the City Council earlier this year voted to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. My brother didn't give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.

But some of the white nationalists cited Trump's victory as validation for their beliefs, and Trump's critics pointed to the president's racially tinged rhetoric as exploiting the nation's festering racial tension.

The remarks drew criticism from some GOP lawmakers as generic and insufficient to the moment, and took exception to the president's use of a kind of equivalence in condemning the violence.
