The violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville reflects the dangerous, open-the-floodgates culture that having a Bully-in-Chief in the White House has created in America.
Hundreds of protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally. 
The rally was dispersed by police minutes after its scheduled start at noon, after clashes between rallygoers and counter-protesters, and after a torchlit pre-rally march Friday night descended into violence.
But later that day, as rallygoers began a march and counterprotests continued, a reported Nazi sympathizer drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters, killing one and injuring 19.

China: Man sentenced to death for mass nursing home killing

April 1, 2016: A man who attacked a nursing home, killing nine people and injuring nine others in 2015, was sentenced to death by a court in central China's Hunan Province.

Luo Renchu, a nursing worker, randomly attacked elderly people and staff at the nursing home after a dispute with the owner over unpaid wages, according to the ruling of the Intermediate People's Court of Loudi City.

The attack happened on Feb. 19, 2015, the Spring Festival, at Aixin Nursing Home, Yongfeng Township, Shuangfeng County. 

The nursing home owed Luo and his wife, also a nursing worker, unpaid wages of about 40,000 yuan (6,200 U.S. dollars).

Luo had asked for the wages many times and had been promised 10,000 yuan before Spring Festival but only received 6,000 yuan.

Luo sought revenge by attacking the home's residents with a brick as they slept in the belief it would cause the owners to lose money. 

He was arrested two days later.
