DC police, protesters prepare for white nationalist rally

Susan Bro mother of Heather Heyer who was killed during last year's Unite the Right rally speaks with reporters at the spot where her daughter was killed in Charlottesville Va. Friday Aug. 10 2018

But, he added, "The state police is fully prepared to act on any inciteful violence".

More than 1,000 federal, state and local law enforcement members are expected in the area over the weekend.

The event descended into violence, with clashes erupting between attendees and counterprotesters.

The president's response to last year's rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, drew intense criticism when he declared at a Trump Tower news conference that there were "very fine people on both sides".

"Last year was a whole different story. This year, I'm afraid of the police", Woolfork said.

"I think 400 is optimistic but we'll see", he said told NewsHour, after reading Kessler's permit application.

Specifically addressing those who were attacked during the march, Ryan said, "I am sorry".

The Virginia State Police has deployed hundreds of troopers to Charlottesville for the August 12 weekend in order to prepare for potential violence.

Kyle Rodland, 35, took his young sons to get ice cream downtown late Saturday morning.

- Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) August 12, 20182:3 While Americans are blessed to live in a nation that protects liberty, freedom of speech and diversity of opinion, there is no place for white supremacy, racism and neo-nazism in our great country.

Rodland said he felt much safer than a year ago, when he left town with his family and stayed with his parents after seeing people armed with long rifles walking around outside his home.

A group of more than 200 protesters then marched to another part of the University of Virginia's campus, where many in the crowd shouted at officers in riot gear who had formed a line.

Ahead of the weekend, it was unclear whether white supremacists would try to reprise the rally.

Several events are scheduled in Charlottesville to observe what happened a year ago and promote racial healing.

Authorities have pledged to keep the two groups apart keeping in mind the violence during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville past year. The man accused of killing Heyer faces murder and hate crime charges.

Mark Lance, a philosophy professor at Georgetown University and an organizer of some of Sunday's planned the counter-demonstrations, said Kessler's call for "white civil rights" was meant to obscure the beliefs of those that rallied in Charlottesville.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, and city officials in Charlottesville announced a state of emergency would be in effect Friday through Sunday in that city and parts of Northern Virginia, outside Washington.

Two state police personnel - Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates - died in a helicopter crash responding to the scene.

Exactly one year after the original rally, "Unite the Right 2"-titled like a bad Hollywood sequel-will be held in a park near the White House".

The city closed downtown streets and public parks and restricted access to a downtown "security area", where visitors were prohibited from wearing masks or carrying certain items, including skateboards, catapults, glass bottles, bats and knives.

More than 700 Virginia State Police personnel alone are trained and ready to be assigned if the need arises, Virginia State Police Colonel Gary T. Settle said.
