Once at the courthouse they will block off paint street, the area blocked off will be determined by the number of people who show up for the march.
Interviewing the group they said that they are planning a peaceful protest, “When we do this protest and people are yelling and chanting. I do not want to hear a single person yell ” F**k 12″ or “F**k the cops” because that is not what we are there to do. We are honoring our black brothers and sisters by bringing awareness. The cops in this town are here to help us and are partnering with us. If you are there to just yell at the police don’t come.”
Anyone who is interested in this movement can join at the park at the time above.
