Charlottesville: State of emergency over US far-right rally - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40912509
A dunce in governance would see that the removal of General Lee's statue would be extremely provocative.

Melania tweets, but silence from the idiot in chief.

White privilege and the lost cause myth are still pervasive. The war continues, by other means.

Some militia unit marched through Charlottesville early this AM, in an apparent show of force. Seems they didn't stick around. State police have since cleared Emancipation Park in response to fisticuffs.

Real uprising troops. I count 27 persons going by in that shot. Not exactly an army, but enough to cause big trouble....

Remember that this is the Timothy Snyder "On Tyranny" topic? Remind yourself of what Snyder's point 17 was. See post #34 here. (In the book, this item became point 6.)

According to Snyder, the end is nigh.

Corrupt and abusive police are a feature of tyranny.

Here police do a false arrest because a nurse refuses to draw blood illegally. They want the blood sample they for self-serving reasons--they hope results will enable them to blame the 3rd party victim in an accident stemming from a police chase.

Was just on the national news (NBC). Cop placed on admin leave. Hope she sues the bastard for false arrest, at the very least. Unbelievable. Welcome to Trump's America.

From the looks of the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKn1BmDDihw the fleeing driver committed suicide by semi.

Local PD just looking for another to place any of the blame now.
