The suspected driver of the car has been arrested and was later identified as 20-year-old James Fields. He has since been charged with second degree murder.
Speaking after the... Еще funeral service, the Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe and US Senator Tim Kaine commented on the weekend's events in Charlottesville.
«Our nation is a nation of immigrants. It is that great mosaic tile that has made us the great United States of America and as we go forward from this memorial service, let Heather Heyer be an inspiration to all of us to do good, to put your hand out and help one another,» said McAuliffe.
«People are entitled to their comments, their dissent, but we need to do it in a respectful manner, we need to come together as one under the United States of America,» he continued, referring to far-right protesters.
Kaine spoke briefly about Virginia's history, before turning to the present.
«Virginia is a place of scar tissue, folks. We've experienced hatred, we've experienced division, we've experienced racism. That is a sad, but undeniable part of our history, but we've come a long way,» he told the media.
