'Blood on Your Hands!': Charlottesville Council Meeting Devolves Into Chaos
A Charlottesville city council meeting devolved into chaos last night as protesters interrupted the proceedings with chants of "blood on your hands."
Monday's meeting was the first since a white supremacist rally turned violent, leaving a woman dead when a man plowed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters.
Mayor Mike Signer, a Democrat, was repeatedly shouted down, as demonstrators voiced their anger over the city's response to the event and demanded his resignation.
Those who came out argued that the police and officials did not do enough to prevent violence and called for Confederate statues to be removed around the city.
The meeting ended with the council voting to move forward on removing the statues of Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson.
Numerous residents got up to the microphone for a total of four hours to express their anger, with many calling out police officers for standing idle while fights occurred in the streets on Aug. 12.
At one point, two demonstrators actually climbed up on the council members' desk to unfurl a banner which read "Blood on Your Hands."
Three people were reportedly removed by police and issued summonses for disorderly conduct.
