Police prepare for anniversary of Unite The Right rally
Police are bracing for protesters and counter-protesters one year after a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virgina.
Last year white nationalists armed with torches marched through the city's streets, chanting 'You will not replace us.'
When counter-protesters arrived things took a violent turn, ending with the death of 32 year old paralegal Heather Heyer when a car plowed through a crowd of counter-protesters. Heyer's family and friends say she was passionate about helping people and died while standing up against hate. The man who allegedly drove the car, James Alex Fields Jr. is still facing a charge of second degree murder in her death.
Today the city of Charlottesville plans to host a rally against racial hatred while the organizer of last year's Unite The Right rally plans to hold a 'white civil rights rally' in Washington.
