On Friday, the law firm Hunton & Williams released a 207-page report about the city of Charlottesville’s response to a far-right rally in August that left one person dead. The report, which was commissioned by the city, found that police were ill-prepared for the event. According to the report, they failed to keep rally attendees and counter-protesters in separate areas and delayed intervening in conflicts, even as they were becoming violent. Mic senior writer Jack Smith IV walks through the report and the day’s events to figure out what went wrong.
