The Virginia State Police even knew about it by August 10th. They were there on the scene at UVA with the Charlottesville Police and the UVA Police. We told them when we were having the torchlight march, where it would be and specifically asked them to separate both sides.
The police stood across the street and made no attempt to separate the two sides when we converged at the Jefferson monument. The sub.Media reporter (these people are anarchists) even asked the police why they weren’t intervening at around 4:00 in this video. They were more concerned about the harmless drone hovering in the air than protecting public safety.
Is there some reason why Virginia State Police, Charlottesville Police and UVA Police couldn’t have maintained the peace on August 11th with six hours advance notice? Is there some reason they were unable to do it the following day with two months advance notice?
