[Too short to excerpt]

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Daily Caller News Foundation breaks down the new bombshell report regarding the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12 in a must-watch episode the of the show “Protester Gameday.”

Two DCNF reporters discussed the new report released Friday morning by the city of Charlottesville, which detailed a series of failures by the Charlottesville Police and Charlottesville City Council that helped contribute to violence at a white nationalist rally in August, a report released Friday details.

The new report explained that the death of Heather Heyer was due in part to mistakes made by the city council and Charlottesville police.

The DCNF was on scene in Charlottesville on August 12 and discuss the new information released in the 220 page report in the new episode.

Charlottesville Police Chief: ‘Let Them Fight’

Excerpt:

Yesterday I wrote about the damning 200-page report on the failure of police (and the city) to handle the escalating violence in Charlottesville back in August. To summarize the report briefly, police were not properly prepared or equipped to deal with the situation and once crowds of white supremacists and counter-protesters began battling in the street the police did almost nothing. In fact, this was a strategy on the part of the police who intended to allow skirmishes to escalate so they could declare an unlawful assembly. Police Chief Al Thomas even said “Let them fight…” as people began battling in the streets.

At 10:57 a.m., a woman approached the outer barricade outside of Zone 1 and got Officer Ernest Johnston’s attention. She asked, “Are you going to engage the crowd at all?”

“Not unless I get a command to,” Officer Johnson responded.

“Even if there are people physically hurting one another?” she asked.

“If I’m given the command to act, yes ma’am, I will.” She repeated her question, and he gave the same answer: he would engage if and when he was commanded to do so.

Tim Messer, a witness with whom we spoke, explained that the skirmishes he observed followed a consistent pattern. As the Unite The Right groups approached Emancipation Park, counter-protesters shouted “here they come” and formed blockades. The demonstrators then used shields, flags, or fists to start skirmishes, all of which were eventually broken up by pepper spray. The crowd would then part and allow them entry into the park. That scenario played out at least half a dozen times. Mr. Messer encountered a VSP trooper near 2nd and Market Streets and asked him why police had been standing back. The trooper replied, “Our policy today is that we cannot get involved in every skirmish, and we are here to protect the public’s safety.” The witness was incredulous that police would allow the fights to go on, but the trooper reiterated, “That is our policy.”

At 10:59 a.m., Captain Shifflett relayed to the Command Center that 2nd and Market Street were once again “getting ready to erupt any second now.” A moment later, he reported
another fight of “about forty people going at it, they’re using sticks.” He again radioed, “Weapons are being used on Market and Second Street.” He added, “Recommend unlawful assembly.”

Charlottesville police were ordered to put on their riot gear which meant retreating from barricades to suit up, a process that took them about fifteen minutes. The report notes that some of the officers had never worn the equipment [emphasis added].

The police department and liberal politics may be seen as an accomplice.... but they didn't drive the car that plowed into people.

Unless someone can prove that the car's driver was acting in self defense, he has zero excuse for the reckless killing.

But that person wasn't everybody at the rally. That one driver doesn't imply that all from the right at that protest were killers. And that one driver doesn't mean the left didn't have their own (bussed-in) aholes at the event, ready to engage in violence.

Apart from the car, it sounds like someone gave them room to destroy. Gee, where have I heard that before?
