    Virginia State Police Say They Didn't Find Caches of Weapons in Charlottesville

    Virginia State Police Say They Didn't Find Caches of Weapons in Charlottesville
    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said police found weapons stashed by white nationalists. Police say they didn't.


    "They had battering rams and we had picked up different weapons that they had stashed around the city," McAuliffe told Mckesson.

    McAuliffe's comments were picked up by other news outlets and spread through social media. But Corinne Geller, a spokesperson for the Virginia State Police, says that no such stashes were found.

    "The governor was referring to the briefing provided him in advance of Saturday's rally and the extra security measures being taken by local and state police," Geller tells Reason. "As a safety precaution in advance of August 12, such searches were conducted in and around Emancipation and McIntire Parks. No weapons were located as a result of those searches."

    The Virginia State Police also disputed McAuliffe's claims that Virginia State Police were underequipped to deal with the heavily armed militia members at Saturday's rally.

    "The governor was referencing the weapons and tactical gear the members of various groups attending the rally had on their persons," Geller says. "I can assure you that the Virginia State Police personnel were equipped with more-than-adequate specialized tactical and protective gear for the purpose of fulfilling their duties to serve and protect those in attendance of the August 12 event in Charlottesville."
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    He ran unopposed. Had the Republicans put a potted plant on the ballot he would have lost.
