A white nationalist pulled his gun out on anti-racism protesters and opened fire into a crowd and in the direction of a black man who had an improvised flame thrower, all while appearing to yell a racial slur for good measure. While all of this happened, police did nothing.

In the video, posted by the ACLU of Virginia, a man in a sleeveless shirt, some type of tactical vest and a bandana is seen walking through the crowd at the “Unite the Right” rally on Aug. 12 only to pass Corey Long, a black man whose image went viral after a photo was taken showing wielding a make-shift flame thrower.

Video footage shows a man firing toward a counter-protester at the Aug. 12 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va.

As demonstrators clashed near a downtown park here two weeks ago, a white nationalist protester in a bulletproof vest turned, pointed a pistol toward the crowd and fired a single shot at the ground, in the direction of a black man wielding an improvised torch. To make his escape, a video recording shows, the armed protester strolled past a line of about a dozen state police troopers who were safely positioned about 10 feet away behind two metal barricades. None of them budged.
