One of the most notable pictures out of the Charlottesville Rally/antifa riot was a black guy attacking ralliers with with an improvised flamethrower.
Charlottesville police have made an arrest—not of the guy with the flamethrower, but of a white guy who fired a warning shot to get him to stop. Hunter Wallace writes

Anarcho-Tyranny: The Corruption of Charlottesville, VA August 27, 2017It has been nearly 24 hours.I’ve never been so angry about anything in my entire life. I had to unplug from the internet after I was blinded with rage when the news broke that the Charlottesville Police had issued arrest warrants for more of our people who were defending themselves and others:
“The police arrested two men, including a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and were seeking a third in connection with violent episodes that took place at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., this month, including the beating of an African-American man that was caught on video and widely shared on social media.The arrests came two weeks after the Aug. 12 rally, which brought hundreds of white supremacists to Charlottesville to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general. The day was marked by skirmishes between demonstrators and counterprotesters, and a 32-year-old woman, Heather D. Heyer, was struck and killed by a car in what the authorities have called a terrorist attack.The police were widely criticized for not doing more to stop violence throughout the morning. …”
This is outrageous.We have already covered at length how the police took the day off in Charlottesville. They stood down and allowed violent Antifa to attack the #UniteTheRight demonstration. This was used as an excuse by Charlottesville and Gov. Terry McAuliffe to declare an illegal assembly and “state of emergency” and nullify the federal court order that had allowed #UniteTheRight to proceed in Lee Park.When the Charlottesville police failed to do their jobs, our people were left with no choice but to defend themselves and others from violent Antifa as they dispersed and returned to their vehicles. As a group of our people were exiting Lee Park, a 23-year-old black male named Corey Long was able to get close enough to attack them with an improvised flamethrower. Richard Preston was exiting Lee Park when he saw Corey Long attacking our people with the flamethrower. He turned around and fired a warning shot at the ground in order to protect a third party from this dangerous situation:The Charlottesville Police Department charged Mr. Preston.
Because of course they did.
After the flamethrower incident, Corey Long, DeAndre Harris and group of black males affiliated with Black Lives Matter followed, stalked and menaced a group of our people who were returning to their cars in the parking garage. They were armed with sticks, baseball bats and a mag lite.
There's a lot more about DeAndre Harris, the guy with the flamethrower, club, and thuggish friends. Apparently he eventually came out on the losing end of an encounter with the UniteTheRight people, and has been pictured bleeding from a scalp wound, which is being treated by the media like the Pieta:
In a note to a Michelle Malkin column
about conservatives being attacked—physically attacked—on college campuses, we wrote that
Anarcho-Tyranny has been defined as “the system whereby the shopkeeper is denied a permit for a pistol, and the robber is given probation”. In campus terms, it means that the Administration can stop any expression of heterodox opinion, but feels constrained to let mobs riot and burn, to avoid damage to the rioters.
The Charlottesville Police are attempting to apply this system
to a whole city, and Governor Terry McCauliffe is trying to apply it to a whole state.
