Voters pepper-sprayed

North Carolina news:

Alamance County sheriff’s deputies and Graham police pepper-sprayed people — including a 5-year-old girl and other children — who were participating in the “I Am Change” march to the polls on Saturday afternoon.

A march, that is – not a riot, not an invasion, not a terrorist attack, a march.

A racially diverse group of about 200 people walked with a police escort from Wayman’s Chapel AME Church to Court Square, where they held a rally encouraging people to vote. The event was organized by Rev. Greg Drumwright, a Burlington native who leads the the Citadel Church in Greensboro, according to his website.

Ah well there you go – racially diverse; they must be commie soshulist terrorists. Gas’em.

They had a moment of silence for George Floyd, then the cops told them to clear the road.

Then, deputies and police officers used pepper spray on the crowd and began arresting people. Several children in the crowd were affected by the pepper spray.

Melanie Mitchell said her 5-year-old and 11-year-old daughters were pepper-sprayed just after the moment of silence.

She said Graham police approached the crowd assembled in the street and told them to move onto the sidewalk and soon began spraying pepper spray toward the ground. Mitchell’s 5-year-old took off running, she said. Both kids threw up. … The crowd then moved to the courthouse where speeches were being given. But before the speeches concluded, Alamance County sheriff’s deputies began dismantling the sound system and telling the crowd to disperse.

And out came the pepper spray again.

I learned of this via David Frum, the conservative who was a speechwriter for Bush2 and is not a fan of Trump.

They’re his kids, I think. Nat Frum has the video of the woman being teargassed in her wheelchair.

Last days of Weimar.
