In Virginia, a man who claims to be a leader of the Ku Klux Klan has been arrested after driving his car into a group of protesters in Richmond on Sunday night. Harry Rogers was charged with assault and battery. Local authorities described him as an “admitted leader of the Ku Klux Klan and a propagandist for Confederate ideology.”
Meanwhile, in Bakersfield, California, there have been at least three recent cases where drivers ran into protesters. On Saturday, a 55-year-old African American named Robert Forbes died after being hit earlier in the week by a white driver. No charges have been filed, but witnesses have accused the driver of intentionally trying to hit protesters.
And in Seattle, an African American man was injured on Sunday when a man drove into a crowd of protesters and opened fire. The driver, Nikolas Fernandez, is being held for suspicion of assault in the first degree.
