Don't you think the Charleston Police Department has some explaining to do? They made no arrests and cited no one after dozen's of BLM flag waving protestors disrupted the streets of Charleston Sunday, screaming the 'F' word over bullhorns from Marion Square through the Market to the Custom's House.
About 7:45 p.m. the group attempted to march down King Street and were at least blocked by officers, but the tone continued to be anything but firm with BLM + Black Panther Party members.
CPD's PIO Charles Francis:
“King Street is a narrow street with narrow sidewalks with multiple pedestrians. It isn’t a safe situation with a large group of people walking down King Street into traffic or forcing other citizens into the street,” Francis said.
Instead of taking a hard stand that no 'permitless protests' will be allowed in the City, Charleston Police Department instead said they will “continue to partner with our citizens and community leaders to do all we can, collectively, to be a positive asset in service to our residents and keep our community safe and the wonderful place we all call our home.”
