Victim Claims Cops Did Nothing to Stop Charlottesville Beatdown

A young man who protested the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville said cops did nothing to help during a beatdown by white supremacists right beside a police station, according to a report.
Deandre Harris, 20, said he exchanged words with some of the neo-Nazis, who then attacked him, local station CBS 3 reported.
“As I fall down I’m getting beat by poles and signs and people are hitting me and kicking me,” Harris said. “I got eight staples in my head, I got a cut [above my eyebrow], a busted lip, I broke my wrist, I have a chipped tooth.”
Harris, who works with children with special needs, said he was drifting in and out of consciousness during the vicious attack Saturday.
“They could have killed my son. That blow to his head could have taken his life,” said his mother, Felicia Harris.
