Charlottesville's city council meeting was abruptly ended by raucous protesters Monday evening.
Police were called as protesters, angered that city officials in their estimation did little to intervene during the protests, overtook the meeting. City council members and city officials soon fled the meeting as protesters entered the area, where they sat and displayed a banner reading "blood on your hands."
Many of the protesters demanded answers about how the earlier protest descended into chaos and deadly violence, demanding accountability of city officials.
"You had multiple opportunities to intervene and you did not intervene one time. We told you exactly what you needed to do and you did nothing," an unidentified man yelled at the meeting.
"Somebody has to be held accountable not only for the blood of those three lives but for every injury that happened this past weekend. And I'll be damned if I see another one of my brothers or sisters get beaten or die," Charlottesville resident Don Gathers said.
Two state police officers were killed when the helicopter they were in crashed while they were patrolling the skies above the city.
Three individuals were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, according to local reports.
"You let her [Heather Heyer] get murdered," another man told council members. "KKK and neo-Nazis come here and say whatever they want but a citizen from here can't. That's ridiculous, you just dragged out three people because they were expressing their freedom of speech."
The council did approve a measure requesting action from the Board of Architectural Review to remove controversial Confederate statues, stating the issue falls under city design jurisdiction.
They also unanimously proved another measure that would cover the Robert E. Lee statue and the Stonewall Jackson statue with black fabric as a symbol of mourning to the victims of the deadly violence.
