Back to arrests for Moral Monday

 

After last's week's happy sit in moment with Phil Berger, by the Moral Monday folks who remained behind, and the week prior, where citations were issued, but no arrests, yesterday's protest got back on the arrest track in Raleigh.

I had thought that, perhaps, election year politics were playing a part, as candidates needing to get re-elected to continue their reign of terror in NC, didn't want to be associated with the arrests of old folks, clergy and teachers.  But, I guess, I was wrong.

19 folks were arrested, which is the first in three weeks, since 14 were arrested for camping overnight in Thom Tillis's office.

The Charlotte Observor estimated 800 protesters were there yesterday, which, if their math skills hold true from last year, means that at least 1000 people were actually there, if not more.
