6:03 pm
they said this is a very peaceful town i have with me the headline of a local newspaper here and there's a very intense picture you can see people were thrown up in the air during the attack as the car plowed down the street people were coming counter protesters were coming up to this alleyway when a car came down through the alleyway plowing through the crowd ripping through the crowd of protesters as you mentioned one woman did lose her life in the thirty two year old heather haier of course the driver of the car fled the scene but he has been i rested and identified as twenty year old james fields of ohio he is now being charged with second degree murder for the death of heather there were also nineteen more people injured in that attack at this point there are still five people in critical condition. when this attack did occur while the city was still under a state of emergency there was a heavy police presence here but the virginia national guard also here in the town

6:05 pm
a police helicopter which was monitoring that rally crashed outside the city two officers were killed president voiced his alarm over the standoff in virginia we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred bigotry and violence on many shi'ites on many sides it's been going on for a long time in our country not donald trump not barack obama. it's been going on for a long long time if the k.k.k. car team were going down there to start a fight shame on them if they were if that was done in the guise of a charity that charity should be revoked and severely disciplined same for the anti for if there are people behind anti for who are are funding it through through charities which i suspect they may be and in provoking violence around the country even in this in a minute sort of passed between the time i was asked to come on the show i walked about a mile through places in new york where there are already protests they do not look
6:06 pm
very spontaneous to me they have printed flags printed placards you know i think people on both sides are spoiling for a fight here and we ought to think very carefully about what actually happened find out who may be guilty of what offenses best to get them and punish them accordingly before we leap to a conclusion as to what may have happened. and amidst the violence in virginia many continue to blame it on deep divisions within american society an increasingly polarized politics. it's about you and i do we stand divided people but i've got to get out of that i try to respect the people who planted. the democratic leader.
6:07 pm
