American Rioting

Riots broke out in Charlottesville Virginia yesterday. The riots were at a rally called by right-wing white nationalists.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/ushome/index.html

One person has been killed and around 30 injured. It is also reported two police officers have been killed. They were in a helicopter that crashed.

 

I have friends in America and they fear this could be the start of a summer of rioting across America.

Re: American Rioting

Yes I read about that on the DM and BBC.

Why were the riots called though? - I know who they were called by but not why. Forgive me if thats a stupid question - lots of other stuff going on at present..

Re: American Rioting

@7up The rally by far-right activists was organised to protest against Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee from the city. This is one of a number of Confederate memorials that are being removed throughout the US.

Rally?

 

"What took place was not a rally. Who wears paramilitary gear and carries automatic weapons to a rally? Who takes shields and helmets and pepper spray and bats and sticks to a rally? The car didn’t “crash”— it was driven at full speed into a crowd of counter-protesters.

What happened in Charlottesville was White nationalist extremists inciting a riot."

Re: American Rioting

I saw that video. Unless it was a car with only 1st gear working it certainly wasn't full speed.

Yes it was fast and dangerous but certainly not full.

It was a disgusting act. The driver should be hung, drawn and quartered (after torture).

Re: American Rioting

It has been said that the white nationalists are doing what Donald Trump said and taking back their country.

The Native American Indians must be wondering where they fit in the grand scheme of things Roll eyes

Re: American Rioting

At least Ivanka Trump called it as it was:

 

1:2 There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis.

We must all come together as Americans -- and be one country UNITED.

Odd, as we both mentioned in another thread we each use Google DNS.
