What's the story on the guy beat in the parking garage? NPR hasn't talked about it. Haven't heard at all about it from news.

Also, that orange turd was talking about 'alt-left' beating people with poles and wearing the body armor and shields.
Those are your people you piece of shit fuck!

I'm sure this has been covered, so sorry I haven't read through the whole thread... But why is he only charged with 2nd degree murder?

2nd degree murder is easier to prove. It's possible that the charge will be changed to 1st degree murder.

I guess they need to prove he drove their deliberately to kill people for 1st degree murder, which so far they can't.

Initial charge so they can detain him and hold him without bail while they gather all the evidence and charge him with everything.

Not a lawyer but I think he'll be charged with a couple dozen assault with a deadly weapon, murder (possibly in the 1st) and hate crime charges.

Thats just to get him and hold him. The DA, and likely the feds will have alternate charges as time goes by.

Fox News, Daily Caller delete posts encouraging people to drive through protests

Originally published by The Daily Caller and later syndicated or aggregated by several other websites, including Fox Nation, an offshoot of Fox News' website, it carried an unsubtle headline: "Here's A Reel Of Cars Plowing Through Protesters Trying To Block The Road." Embedded in the article was a minute-and-a-half long video showing one vehicle after another driving through demonstrations. The footage was set to a cover of Ludacris' "Move Bitch."

Hope you are joking here, but the guy has a confederate flag embalmed on his vest. He was not disgusted, he was in league with them. You don't march and eat fried chicken with the KKK and not agree with what they stand for. They are just trying to avoid the name and shame at this point.

Yeah, the New York Times put out a different pic yesterday, and the pain it captured was absolutely heartbreaking.

I hope one day these brave comrades will have shrines dedicated to them and all traces of confederate history disappear to time

Thanks for sharing. This story has more details of their story, including (non-graphic) video that Marissa Blair, his fiancée, livestreamed as the car hit the crowd: http://www.*****************/news/ar...ttesville.html

I'm curious about this as well. CNN never reported it that I saw, and with photographs of the beating and the police station right next to it, surely it should be a big deal? Is there just not enough evidence and the outlets are afraid to cover it?

I dug around and it looks like a few minor news outlets are still covering it. http://www.wcpo.com/news/crime/forme...sville-beating

The full video unfortunately looks like two groups fighting, we know how some of the press would have swung that.

I guess the only bit of good news is the guy who got hit with poles has a go fund me that reached when I last checked yesterday over $136,000 for his medical expenses.

CNN actually had the guy on and went on about it for awhile.

Try this one: https://twitter.com/marsbar078/statu...92145925779456

Chaotic while still being under control. People getting arrested. People yelling. Police are calmly walking people out. People holding up "Blood On Your Hands" sign.
