Anniversary of fatal Charlottesville rally puts city, D.C. on edge"They feel that not being here is giving in to fear and terror." 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 five planned counterprotests that could attract close to 2,000 people in all.
