Virginia Police Chief’s Emails Show He Refused Extra Police for Deadly Rally and Snubbed Students Who Sought Safety


Shadowproof has obtained all emails sent from the University of Virginia’s (UVA) police chief during the “Unite the Right” rally under a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The emails are dated August 11 and 12, and reveal UVA police chief Michael Gibson’s internal handling of the march that resulted in the death of counterprotester Heather Heyer.

One email shows Gibson declining an offer by nearby George Mason University’s chief of police, Carl Rowan, Jr., to send additional officers for assistance.
