    Happened in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, today, August 12, 2017.

    A 32-year-old woman is dead, and 19 others are injured.

    A group of protesters were protesting the taking down of a Confederate General Robert E. Lee statue.

    A group of counter protesters came around and all hell broke loose.

    One of those counter protesters drove his gray Dodge Challenger into the back of multiple vehicles, then slammed it into reverse.

    A male is in custody and the incident is being treated as a criminal homicide.

    The quality is pretty bad but it seems like a leg at around 0:21

    Yep. If you slow the video down, you can see something tumble out of the damaged front of the car.

    The live feed messages in the 1st video in the comments really show you that there are a ton of really sick individuals among us. Whether you agree with someone or not about a political/social issue does not mean you should feel glee about their death or injury. People make me sick :(

    James Fields
    Screen Shot 08-12-17 at 10.12 PM.PNG
    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The suspect being held in a Virginia jail in connection with a deadly crash near a scheduled rally of white nationalists has been identified as James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio, according to Superintendent Martin Kumer with the Albermarle-Charlottesville County Regional Jail .

    Fields is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death.

    One person died and 19 were injured Saturday when a car rammed a crowd of counterprotesters gathered to oppose a "Unite the Right" rally of white nationalist and other right-wing groups.

    Charlottesville Police Chief Al Thomas said the suspect was taken into custody not far from the crash site.

    Thomas told reporters a 32-year-old woman was killed while she was crossing the street. Her name was not released.

    "What the world saw today is not the place Charlottesville is," Thomas said of the violence that preceded the scheduled rally. "We love our city. Let us heal. This is not our story. Outsiders do not tell our story. We will tell our own story."

    Police said only that the crash is under investigation and have not commented on specific aspects of the crash.

    This is insane. Sad and scary part about all of this is the fact that each time there is a rally or protest, things are happening and it seems each time they get worse. These mentally unstable people seem to step up the next person. Almost like copy-cats. You wouldn't catch me at one of these protest. I have kids to think about and my own life. It's sad all this bullshit is going on.

    Fucking neo nazis. Scum of the earth. I'm speechless. I thought more people would have died. What bothers me is that if a brownish dude did it, it would be terrorism and he would have probably been shot to death right there. But nooooo. Criminal homicide it is. It's just a crazy white supremacist piece of shit

    Is that spot in the beginning of the video the possible spot where the lady was struck?

    I'm guessing yes, maybe she got squished when he rammed those cars and she's possibly underneath it in the picture

    I could not see it clearly enough to make a call, but I did notice that it kinda bounced around.

    That might be just an oil spot and some litter as the car has not hit anyone at that time.

    Typical, all of a sudden the guy in the challenger isn't a terrorist. Now he is a victim of extreme minority violence... :catfight:

    I don't believe they should take down that Statue of Robert E. Lee.
    We can't just erase our history.

    Wasn't it just a shoe that fell out? Also crazy how easy he got away. I get that it's a car but it's surprising a crowd that big couldn't stop him, like break the window and grab him. It's also not that easy to drive backwards.

    Auto door glass is hard to break unless you have something made of metal, and kinda heavy. The ram a fist thru a door glass is movie bullshit. It's hard to to with a baton.
