Apparently some officers saying driver was scared. Not malicious

http://twitchy.com/brettt-3136/2017/08/12/driver-who-rammed-crowd-in-charlottesville-reportedly-detained-one-killed/

The video I saw had a car coming from a rather empty area of the block, speeding toward the crowd! Scared, my ass!!

Wouldn't he have been going away from the crowd?!?!

1. Didn't the police make an official statement?

That they are treating this as a "vehicular homicide"?

6. The chief said 'criminal homicide'. Not 'vehicular' homicide.

2. I saw a car speeding in reverse after plowing through the crowd.

I also didn't see any rocks or debris being thrown at the car. If I am wrong I will retract.

13. And no break lights as he got to the edge of the crowd

There is quite a bit of video of this. The POS doesn't have a leg to stand on. It was deliberate. The only surprise he got was that there were 3 other cars in his way.

21. Best three videos of the car hitting the people

http://ir.net/news/politics/126763/breaking-raw-video-footage-car-plowing-anti-kkk-protesters-virginia/

The second one is from someone nearly two blocks away from the crowd and has - poor - video of the car accelerating towards them. It also shows the car accelerating backwards, dragging its bumper.

4. those cops are almost certainly Nazi sympathizers

 

those expressing such sentiments ought to be the subject of an official investigation

9. I saw one phone video, where he appeared to floor it from

down the block and then sped into the crowd.

10. Watch it turn out to be...

someone who has little to no interest in politics, and he lost it because of people blocking the street,
YouTube has a number of examples of this happening.

11. Typical cowards defense

How many times to we have to hear "I was scared" after a person is slain?
Also a defense offered up by far too many "officers" imo. I guess that would make them prone to accept cowardliness as an excuse.

12. Wonder how long it took the driver and the cops to come up with that one?

Can't help but believe that if the driver were a POC the DA would have already held a presser announcing first degree murder charges and that death penalty is on the table.

19. My bad, Twitchy was sold to Salem Media Group:

20. WaPo confirmed suspect in custody

The car is registered to 20-year-old James Alex Fields of Ohio, according to vehicle registration records reviewed by The Washington Post. Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail Superintendent Martin Kumer told The Post that a man with the same name and age was booked Saturday on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, failure to stop for an accident involving a death, and hit and run. Kumer said Fields is being held without bail.
