Last Saturday during a march against white supremacy in Charlottesville, Virginia, a man drove a Dodge Challenger into the crowd, killing at least one and injuring dozens more. The vehicle was traveling at 40 mph, a speed that has a 90% fatality rate when hitting pedestrians. It’s a miracle more didn’t die.
The suspect is a registered Republican and ‘Unite White’ member. Many have labeled the suspect in this horrific act of terrorism a Nazi.
It seems hardly coincidence that he chose the vehicle he did as a lethal weapon. Dodge’s marketing campaign for the Challenger seems geared towards violent sociopaths on a disturbing level.
