Police Backpedal on Race Attacks

Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo has begun to backpedal on statements that the string of attacks by black teenagers on white UVa students were racially motivated, despite confessions from the arrested suspects. The topic became hot after David Duke’s white supremacy organization got involved on Thursday, demanding that the suspects be charged under § 18.2-57 B., which is Virginia’s hate crime statute. Reed Williams has a story on the matter in today’s Progress.
