A new report that was commissioned and conducted by the city of Charlottesville on the events surrounding the protests and subsequent violence that took the national stage in Charlottesville, Virginia back in August, and the findings indicate that not only were police told to stand down in the matter, which became deadly, but there was an attempt to cover it up.
One of the posts abandoned by officers was the very place that led to the death of Heather Heyer, who was killed after a white supremacist drove his car through a crowd of people and slammed into several other cars before backing up, hitting other demonstrators.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:
A police officer radioed for help as angry protesters swarmed around her: “They are pushing the crowd my way and I have nobody here to help me.”
