Anniversary of fatal Charlottesville rally puts city, D.C. on edge

Officials in Charlottesville have vowed a massive police presence – with some 1,000 personnel assigned – to deter any violence. The organizer of last year's event, white nationalist Jason Kessler, was denied a permit in Charlottesville this year but has secured permission to hold a demonstration on Sunday in Washington, across the street from the White House. Washington officials said on Thursday that police were ready for the rally as well as three planned counter-protests that could attract close to 2,000 people in all.
