    But the guy's not going to say "I brought a spray paint and a lighter to attack Nazis". According to the Virginia State Police, no shots were fired during the protests.


His is the only account that offers any context to the photo.

That said, you're right; other than making an assumption using body language, there's no way of knowing who the instigator was. So to claim that it's Antifa (as Jesusfan did) is just as faulty.

    I don't know which way the Washington Free Beacon leans, but I think it's a shame that that's the first thing I wonder whenever I read an article nowadays.

    EDIT: The Washington Free Beacon is a conservative website. Still, they are reporting what the Virginia State Police stated.


Well, regardless of WFB's political slant, the article didn't seem to perpetuate any bias.

Still, the VSP are currently under heavy scrutiny due to their lack of response to the violence. It's not beyond the realm of possibility that things transpired (such as shootings) that they might not be aware of.
