Charlottesville: Domestic Terrorism

1 count of a hate crime resulting in the death of Heather Heyer

28 counts of hate crime acts causing bodily injury and involving an attempt to kill

1 count of racially motivated violent interference with a federally protected activity, resulting in the death of Heather Heyer,

Observe the clever language used by Ruth Serven:

Fields then rapidly accelerated, ran through a stop sign and across a raised pedestrian mall, and drove directly into the crowd, striking numerous individuals, killing Heather Heyer and injuring many others

Notice how she never says he struck Heyer, and only mentions injuring OTHERS. The idea that Heyer was killed will have to be argued indirectly since it is clear from video that she wasn’t contact and merely dropped from a combination of fat, heat and fright.

A federal grand jury on Wednesday charged James Alex Fields Jr. with 30 hate crime charges in the deadly Aug. 12 car attack that killed one and injured dozens.

Fields, of Maumee, Ohio, was charged with one count of a hate crime resulting in the death of Heather Heyer; 28 counts of hate crime acts causing bodily injury and involving an attempt to kill; and one count of racially motivated violent interference with a federally protected activity, resulting in the death of Heather Heyer, for allegedly driving his car into a crowd of protesters on a downtown street in Charlottesville during the Unite the Right rally.

According to the indictment from the Department of Justice, Fields drove his car onto the Fourth Street crossing of the Downtown Mall, a narrow, downhill, one-way street. At around the same time, a racially and ethnically diverse crowd of individuals was gathered at the bottom of the hill, at the intersection of Fourth Street Southeast and East Water Street.

The indictment alleges that Fields slowly proceeded in his vehicle toward the crowd, stopped and then observed the crowd while idling in his vehicle. Many of the individuals in the crowd were chanting and carrying signs promoting equality and protesting against racial and other forms of discrimination. With no vehicle behind him, Fields slowly reversed his vehicle to the top of the hill near the intersection of Fourth and Market streets, authorities said.

Fields then rapidly accelerated, ran through a stop sign and across a raised pedestrian mall, and drove directly into the crowd, striking numerous individuals, killing Heather Heyer and injuring many others, the indictment states. Fields’s vehicle stopped only when it struck another vehicle near the intersection of Fourth and Water streets, authorities said. He then rapidly reversed his vehicle and fled the scene, the indictment states.

The federal charges add to 10 state charges of first-degree murder, malicious wounding and aggravated malicious founding and failure to stop at the scene of the crash. He is scheduled to go to trial in Charlottesville Circuit Court in November.

Notice that they are alleging it was premeditated because he backed away from the crowd before driving back toward them. But what they fail to mention is it is a 1-way street. South was the only direction he could legally drive. They also have not released the aerial footage taken by the helicopter which crashed later, so we don’t know what happened to him when he backed up north. Media who reported on it could have left out details.

That’s a dandy defense of murder. Btw just an FYI, law enforcement and not the media, file charges, if you don’t like the charges filed, go talk to LE that you guys voice such respect and support of.
