Alleged Charlottesville attacker previously accused of beating wheelchair-bound mom

The investigation will be conducted in Charlottesville, as well as Maumee, Ohio, Fields' hometown. "When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and can not be tolerated".

"You're college-educated, but if you walk into the store you may have people following you, and it's not fair", Wilson quoted Heyer as having said to him often.

Two Virginia State Police troopers investigating the day's events died when the helicopter they were in crashed in Albemarle County, where Charlottesville is located, according to the state police. In Seattle, police arrested three men and confiscated weapons as Trump supporters and counter-protesters converged downtown.

"This isn't how he should have to grow up", she said.

Samantha Bloom, who is disabled and uses a wheelchair, repeatedly called police about her son, James Alex Fields Jr, in 2010 and 2011, telling officers he was on medication to control his temper, transcripts from 911 calls show. Weimer said Fields was a big Trump supporter because of what he believed to be Trump's views on race.

"People need to wake up, recognize that and resist it as fearlessly as it needs to be done", said Carl Dix, a leader of the Refuse Fascism group organizing demonstrations in New York, San Francisco and other cities. She said her parents were Holocaust survivors, and she's anxious that extremist views were becoming normal under Trump's presidency.

"Those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans", he said.

In high school, Fields was an "average" student, but with a keen interest in military history, Hitler, and Nazi Germany, said Weimer, who said he was Fields' social studies teacher at Randall K. Cooper high school in Union, Kentucky, in Fields' junior and senior years.

A former teacher of Fields has said that Fields espoused extremist ideals at least since high school.

"Once you talked to James for a while, you would start to see that sympathy toward Nazism, that idolization of Hitler, that belief in white supremacy", Weimer said.

Fields's research project into the Nazi military was well written, Weimer said, but it appeared to be a "big lovefest for the German military and the Waffen-SS."

Authorities said they were surprised to learn of the 20-year-old's role in the deadly crash Saturday based on their brief interaction with him, according to the news station.

Fields was not physically present in the courtroom but appeared via a video monitor.

In a Twitter post, the group said it had handed out the shields "to anyone in attendance who wanted them", and denied Fields was a member.

Kessler said this week that the rally is partly about the removal of Confederate symbols but also about free speech and "advocating for white people".

Downer described Weber as "very experienced" and set an August 25 hearing to reconsider bond once Fields has had an opportunity to consult with Weber.
