Video footage has surfaced and shows a man firing a gun toward a counter protester during the Aug. 12 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va. Residents are now demanding to know why officers did not act in real time as heavily armed people fought and a car sped toward a crowd, killing a woman. In fact, many participants in the protest and counter protests believe that the failure of the police to intervene was intentional.
Officials have insisted that no “stand down” order was issued, and a state police spokeswoman said troopers did not hear the shot. Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
