Not everyone in Charlottesville is in favor with the security plans in place the August 12th weekend, saying shutting the city down is an unacceptable solution.

The Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit organization based in the Charlottesville area, is dedicated to the defense of civil liberties. The institute feels taking such extreme measures is putting the city in a negative light.

Rutherford Institute President John Whitehead believes Charlottesville should take precautions to avoid a repeat of last year’s controversial Unite the Right rally, but not this extreme without credible evidence.
