In addition to skinheads there were people that do not believe statues should be taken down. The same opinion of Richmond mayor who happens to be young and black. There were people not associated with antifa who do want the statues gone. Are these bad people? Of course not. Just people who disagree. And there were people intent upon violence and brought it. And as the governor was intent on seeing this happen to further his political career and squash the rally before it began, violence was permitted and a young woman and two cops dead. Contrast that to Richmonds mayor who declared his monuments were going nowhere and can now say no to any rally on grounds that there is no threat. Best mayor Richmond has ever had.
