Whitepill: James A. Fields will be exonerated of any charge of murder.

Just like we saw with George Zimmerman, Officer Darren Wilson, and so many others, the Left is going to pick the wrong battle to fight. They’re going to ignore the role of their own violence, and of the violence of groups the Left is sympathetic towards, in producing undesirable outcomes. Then, as a result of that selective vision, they’re going to demand a response that reality simply isn’t going to give them. They’re picking a terrible example to be the center-point of their case that violent Nazis came to wreak havoc on Charlottesville, and as usual, the truth about the examples they’ve chosen will eventually come to light. Thus, over the long run, once people are no longer high on the media buzz of the moment, the outcome of this case is only going to help their narrative continue to crumble.

James A. Fields is at least causally responsible for the only death resulting directly from the action in Charlottesville, VA this past weekend; Heather Heyer, the victim, died after being struck by Fields’ vehicle.

But what we know now is that Fields never even sped up his car until one of the counter–protestors slammed the back of his car with a baseball bat, as can be clearly seen on video here.

After he first speeds up to get away, he can’t see that there is a row of stopped cars up ahead of him because of the density of the rapidly dispersing crowds. As a result, he rams into the back of the row of cars and gets himself stuck there.

After this, one can unequivocally see more people dive violently into his car from all sides, with one of them successfully busting the back windowshield open with yet another baseball bat in the span of just a couple of seconds (how many baseball bats were the people on this street carrying?! Anyway, this can be clearly seen thirteen seconds into this video recording). This is the point at which Fields high-tails it in reverse in order to escape a situation in which he is pinned and surrounded by people assaulting his car and smashing the glass in with bats.

Dear reader, I invite you step aside from the particular details of this scenario, just for a moment. Simply imagine you’re driving your car, and someone comes up to you with a baseball bat and smashes in one of your car windows. What do you imagine comes next?

If just a moment ago, this person had a baseball bat, and they were smashing in your windows, and now there are no windows to separate the two of you, do you expect them to start engaging in a civilized discussion with you now that the two of you can hear each other more clearly with the car windows out of the way?

No.

You expect to be assaulted. You expected to be potentially murdered, and very easily left brain dead for life or in a coma for weeks or months, because of a baseball bat attack.

You expect them to keep doing what they were already doing, minus the fact that a moment ago there was a glass window between the two of you. They’ve just smashed that window out of the way, and now all that’s left is you and a person carrying a baseball bat which they’ve demonstrated a very clear intention to use to harm you.

People are not legally obligated to sit still and be polite in a situation like that, and wait until they actually get clubbed in the back of the head before they’re allowed to react as if what they’re experiencing is an attempted assault, or even an attempted murder.

For the same reason, if someone points a firearm at you, you don’t have to wait until they prove their intention to kill you by actually pulling the trigger and firing a bullet towards your skull before you’re justified to act as if you are the victim of an attempted murder.

Why?

Because if you waited to find out for sure if they really did plan to pull the trigger, it would already be too late. You’d be dead. Splat. And what goes for pointing a gun at someone’s head also goes for smashing their car windows in with baseball bats.

Taylor Lorenz, a journalist at The Hill, spoke with law enforcement immediately after the event and confirmed that they believe Field was scared, not malicious. Why? Because he was surrounded by counter-protesters assaulting his car with baseball bats. Now, if this is true, then the counter–protesters actually do in fact bear the entire blame for Heather Heyer’s death.

That is, at least according to the principles our legal system is based on.

Even if you think Fields should have had cause to fear for his own life, and still just sat there and let himself possibly get clubbed to death with baseball bats and who knows what else, it’s actually not how the law works.

Now, dear reader, please join me in imagining another scenario:

A masked robber enters a small corner store.

You, the shopkeeper, pull out a gun to defend your property and the lives of those nearby.
You aim to shoot the robber, but you miss—striking and killing an innocent bystander.

Who is responsible for the innocent man’s death?

You? After all, you’re the one who literally shot the man, right?

Well, this scenario has happened before, and the criminal justice system has answered that you are not—because if anything, it is actually the masked robber who is responsible, since you never would have had to pull out the weapon if not for him.

But aiming to shoot someone is very different from what James Fields appears to have done. If someone pulls out a firearm and aims and shoots it person-height, we can assume that the only reason anyone would ever do this is because they had intent to kill someone. But even this does not apply to driving a vehicle down a crowded street. From the fact that Fields sped down this cramped alleyway, we simply can’t assume that this action represented an intent to murder anyone. All we can safely assume is that he wanted to escape the assault that was beginning to take place against his vehicle (whose glass would provide only a very thin layer of protection between him and the baseball bat–carrying crowds). So what goes for the case of a discharged firearm goes even more so for the case of speeding vehicle, since the former represents an unequivocal intent to kill someone and the latter does not.

In due time, Fields will be exonerated of the murder charge—to a chorus of liberal shock, just like George Zimmerman and Darren Wilson were. And just as happened in this cases, liberals aren’t going to update their beliefs in response to reality—they’re going to dig their heads in the sand even further by pretending this means The System is aligned with White Supremacy. But ordinary people will see through this. Liberal hyperventilation over legitimate judgments of the U.S. criminal justice system is predictable, and it is one thing that rather reliably drives people towards our side.

    “Whitepill: James A. Fields will be exonerated of any charge of murder.” Your faith in American jurisprudence is touching but misplaced.

    Your article makes a giant mistake. Heather did not die after being struck by Mr. Fields’s car. She was sandwiched in between the two cars in front, already impeding their movement. Field’s car never touched her while she was committing her crimes.

      Wow, this is very big if true. Do you have a primary source that makes this clear so I can edit it on to the article?

        Stop being lazy and confirm it yourself. You parroted a false narrative. You assumed fatty was hit by Fields’s car, a lie.

          Your tone leads serious readers to think you are a crank.

          There doesn’t appear to be either direct video for, or an official police report of, what happened. I’m not going to just rely on the scattered choices of phrasing that shows up in various articles for a point like this, especially because that wording isn’t consistent across different websites anyway. If you come across any primary sources, feel free to come back and let us know.

            [Tinfoil hat alert]

            https://youtu.be/4MDEDiAQH8A?t=7s

            Pause the video at 8 seconds and play it frame by frame. You can see Heyer in mid air, flying end over end towards the front of the white car with the black top, which was hit by Fields’ gray car. Around 11 seconds you can see a black woman on the hood of Field’s car, who somehow walks away from the crash.

            In another video you can see a man sitting on the hood of a black truck as Fields’ car drives backwards at breakneck speed, so my guess is that the black woman was sitting on Fields’ car in a similar way, to make to stop so commies could beat his car with bats, before it crashed into the white car. You can also clearly make out the spiderweb pattern where his windshield had already been hit by a club or something similar: https://youtu.be/lN1M1JwzPaA

            What could be disconcerting to the more speculatively minded is that someone sprays something, then a woman shouts a phrase which sounds like “She’ll fall and hit the bridges(?)” and then a red flag covers the camera lens at the exact moment when Heyer was presumably hit. That’s bound to set off a few…red flags. She seems to just appear in mid-air as if flung from a third story window. Maybe there is another video that captures the moment she is hit and contradicts my conjecture.

            It seems unlikely that anyone other than a professional stunt driver would have been able to speed away backwards within three seconds of this crash, though maybe adrenaline could account for that. I am not comfortable suggesting that Fields’ car was rigged in advance to be controlled remotely, though it is technically possible.

            I smell a fish, in any case. The MSM narrative relies on this crash, as well as the mysterious unrelated helicopter crash, to have the potency to foment the destruction of monuments, the firing of Bannon, and whatever else may transpire. Otherwise, it would have just been another Berkeley or Auburn kind of situation.

            Correction, the front windshield was hit (on the passenger side) after the crash as I can see from the video linked in the article. What I can’t see anywhere in it is exactly when Heyer it hit. But she doesn’t appear to have been dropped from overhead either.

            Sorry for the comment clutter, feel free to delete the other two. You can see Heyer get hit in this video:

    Thank you, Aedon, for that TMZ clip of the attack on the car. I’ve downloaded the video in case YouTube takes it down. Truth matters.

    Someone please tell James A. Fields to get a lawyer!

    It’s going to be very much like the Zimmerman trial. A huge miscarriage of justice if he’s convicted.
