Over the weekend, a planned protest on the campus of the University of Virginia erupted in violence when counter-protesters clashed with neo-Nazis and white supremacists, who were protesting the removal of a Confederate statute. One person was killed and 19 injured after a man police later identified as James Alex Fields Jr. allegedly drove into a crowd of people during the protests. The death toll crept up to three after two Virginia state troopers were killed when their helicopter crashed on a golf course as they were going to assess the situation in Charlottesville.
