Harris, 20, was viciously attacked by white supremacists at the rally. The attack went viral after journalist Zach D. Roberts captured photos of Harris being beaten with poles by the group of thugs. Another journalist, Chuck Modi, also posted video of the incident, which occurred in a parking garage near the University of Virginia campus.
