'Blood on your hands!' Chaos erupts at Charlottesville council meeting

Residents said that police were slow to respond to the escalating brawls, and that the city's response allowed for the death of Heather Heyer, 32, who was killed when an OH man attending the rally allegedly drove his vehicle into a crowd, and for the injuries of many more. News reported that the rally was not on the meeting's agenda, but was forced into discussion by constituents. They expressed frustration that city leaders had granted a permit for the rally and criticized police for allowing the two sides to clash violently before the rally even started.

Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer on Thursday said he was denied access to security details before the deadly white nationalist rally earlier this month, claiming that his city's police chief at one point told the mayor to "stay out of my way". "We should have done it years ago".
