A white nationalist who attended the far-right rally in Charlottesville last weekend has released a tearful video saying he’s scared the police are going to kill him.

Christopher Cantwell appeared in Vice News’ documentary on the march, saying:

I’m carrying a pistol, I go to the gym all the time - I’m trying to make myself more capable of violence.

But in a video originally posted to Facebook, Cantwell is insisting he is innocent, and would only use violence in self defence.

He said he’s been told there’s a warrant out for his arrest, saying “I don’t know what to do.”

He went on to say:

I emailed Steve Tenney of the Keene Police Department, I emailed him and I said ‘I don’t know what to do and I need guidance.’

He encouraged people to get in touch and tell him what to do, adding:

If I can confirm you are in fact law enforcement I will give you my location and I will let you come and get me.

I’m armed, I do not want violence with you. I’m terrified I’m afraid you’re going to kill me. 

Here's the video:

Unsurprisingly, people are rather unsympathetic.

Some people gave him some of the guidance he asked for:
