Reports are coming in that a state police helicopter patrolling the race riots in Charlottesville has crashed on Old Farm Road, near the Birdwood Golf Course at the University of Virginia in Albemarle County. In a video by The Daily Caller, it was first stated that a helicopter had gone down in Charlottesville. Soon after, the above video surfaced.

The crash was also tweeted about by the Virginia Professional Fire Fighters president, Robert Bragg III.
Videos of VSP aircrafts patrolling the air have been shared since the riots broke out this morning. The latest tragedy comes after video surfaced of a car ramming into a group of counter-protesters at todays white supremacist rally taking place at the university.
This is a developing story.
Still awaiting confirmation....
No survivors, then..... RIP.
Too sad. These guys will not go home tonight because someone decided to wreak havoc in Charlottesville today. :(
Well the Antigua crowd has been threatening violence there for days...so...
2 fatalities confirmed by Virginia State Police.
Maybe other RAT governors besides McC will stop issuing permits for these.
Antigua? They have a dog in this fight?
“No survivors, then...RIP.”
I hope not. We had a National Guard chopper crash at Ft. McCoy one year. We had to fan out and search for survivors/the wreckage.
The 1SG was killed, as was the Pilot, but when we found the Commander (a young Captain at the time) he was standing on two broken legs, banging on the chopper with a piece of debris so we could help find him.
I’ll never forget that night. Ever. Burned into my memory.
Miracles Happen! :)
Blame IPad. Antifa is what I typed.
That would be a rotor shot. BLM pulled snipers from Iraq and Afghanistan.
The ACLU is to blame for this. C’ville tried to stop the march and the ACLU protected the Neo-Nazis.
Sounds like the late rotting John Allen Muhammad. Might be the case here too.
This is McAuwfulls fault. The governor Failed the people of Charlotte. He KNEW that Antifa was going to jump in the middle of that and create a riot. He had the duty to know. They wouldn’t have needed air support in this situation if it hadn’t gone out of control in the first place.
I knew that.
Sounds like tail rotor failure - hmmmm.....
