Thompson Issues Statement on Melee in Charlottesville

Aug 14, 2017

U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson issued the following statement in the wake of the melee in Charlottesville, Va:

"The events that unfolded in Charlottesville, Va. are horrific and my family and I are praying for those injured and the young woman who so tragically lost her life. 

“While freedom of speech is a protected right in this country, violence is certainly not. Hate groups should heed this as a warning. The people, united, will always stand in face of adversity and continue to strengthen the ties that bind us together as Americans."
