    Charlottesville rally turns into anti-police protest

Would the same group of neo-Nazis and wannabe Klansmen show up again leading to a battle with counterprotesters? Antifa showed up early in significant numbers, claiming that they were simply there to honor the memory of Heather Heyer, the young woman who died when one of the Klan supporters plowed his car into the crowd.
