The jury is in and it doesn't look good for white nationalist and convicted murderer James Alex Fields, Jr.


Fields stood accused of murdering paralegal and civil rights activist Heather Heyer, as well as severely injuring dozens of others when he deliberately drove his car into a crowd of people protesting a rally held by Unite the Right. The Virginia jury was out for only four hours when they came back with the decision of a life sentence plus 419 years.

Susan Bro, Heyer's mother, spoke at the trial saying:

"Almost all members of our family have gone into grief therapy as the darkness has tried to swallow us whole. We are survivors but we are much sadder survivors. We are forever scarred by the pain. Justice has him where he needs to be."

Twitter certainly agreed with the sentence.














And then there was this zinger.


Sentencing was scheduled for March 29, 2018, by Judge Richard Moore.
