~ On charges against four suspected white supremacists for their roles in the August 11/12 violence in Charlottesville ~

RICHMOND (October 2, 2018)--Attorney General Mark R. Herring issued the following statement on the charges announced today by U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen against four suspected white supremacists for their roles in the violence of August 11 and 12, 2017 in Charlottesville:


“This is an important step towards justice for the Virginians and the greater Charlottesville community who endured the violence of August 11 and 12, and who continue to live with the repercussions. I commend U.S. Attorney Cullen for bringing these cases and will support him and his team in any way possible.


“These arrests are also a stark reminder that the threat of white supremacist violence in the United States is real and growing. We cannot be complacent or pretend it isn’t real or can’t happen here. I will continue to press the Virginia General Assembly for stronger tools to prevent white supremacist violence, and to hold accountable those whose hateful ideology drives them to violence.”
