17. He's always been a good boy. A few of the typical teen issues, but other than that, a good boy.

I just don't understand it. He must have been influenced by those other people, or provoked.

I'm guessing what his parents will say.

18. This is what a Nazi looks like. We should put him in a zoo & charge for people to view him.

"And here we see a modern American Nazi in his natural habitat. Notice the banged up car, the guns we provide him to keep him busy (we don't provide bullets). The Confederate Flag. He especially loves his red Make America Great hat. Please step back from the exhibit, ma'am. He's dangerous."

I'm so pissed off about this I could (and definitely will later) scream.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?

28. He'll get a slap on the wrist.

Don't forget who's in the White House, and who's in charge of the Justice Department. Those two will bring pressure to bear on anyone trying or sentencing this despicable piece of trash. I sincerely doubt he'll do more than a year, for what amounts to vehicular murder. The little white supremacist will get a private attorney, courtesy of his Nazi pals, and the wonderful pleas and sweetheart deals afforded to well healed white people, will be showered upon him.
I really, REALLY hope I'm wrong, but I've become too cynical and jaded by the racist pigs currently residing and scheming at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

13. Probably Mom & Dad's car. His parents, we know nothing about them, but chances are

one learns to hate at home. Regardless, his parents are about to find out what it's like to be hated by millions of people for no other reason than lineage. May they find the wisdom and courage to explain it to others.

15. WTH? This is exactly the type of terrorism done in Europe! No terrorism charge?

No 1st degree murder?

It's good to be a white male. No wonder they feel entitled.

20. At the moment, if found guilty, he faces max 40 years for 2nd degree murder.


However, Virginia passed an antiterrorism law after 2001 that would make him eligible for life. Politically motivated murder certainly seems to fit any reasonable definition of terrorism.

Let's hope, if he's found guilty, that he gets the sentence he would richly deserve.

22. The right is blaming the anti-racism protestors.

It's outrageous. "If they weren't there protesting, they wouldn't have gotten hit by the car."
People that protest deserve to be killed!? Sickening.

wearing helmets and carrying sticks, bats, guns, and pepper spray. They came for a brawl. They incited a riot.

24. Trump offered to pay the legal fees for his followers accused of violence.

During the campaign season, Trump offered to pay the legal fees for his followers accused of violence.

Of course it was just more of Trump's lies but it got out his message encouraging violence.

D'ya suppose he will offer to pay the driver's legal fees?

25. His mom just defended Trump, insisting Trump is not a white supremacist.

Fields' mother, Samantha Bloom, told The Associated Press on Saturday night that she knew her son was attending a rally in Virginia but didn't know it was a white nationalist rally.

"I thought it had something to do with Trump. Trump's not a white supremacist," Bloom told the AP.

31. Also, for the record, he is a registered Republican and former military.

In case you hear from anyone, as I have, that he is a "liberal" and they know that from his Facebook page.

I couldn't find a FB page but I did find the other info.

https://www.mediaite.com/online/james-alex-fields-jr-identified-as-driver-who-crashed-into-counter-protestors/

According to EverPedia, Fields Jr. is a “resident of Maumee, Ohio​. He is registered to vote in Lucas County, Ohio​ and put his party affiliation as Republican]​In addition, James is registered as the owner of a Gray 2010 Dodge Challenger​ that ran into protesters at the Unite the Right​ rally.​” He also is reported to have served in in the US military. From August 18th to December 11th, 2015, James was listed as an Active Duty Service Member in the United States Army​.
