Truth About Charlotte Protests: They’re Mostly Out-of-Staters
Breitbart is reporting today that the vast majority of the arrests being made in Charlotte are people who are not from Charlotte or even North Carolina.
“This is not Charlotte that’s out here. These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protesters, these are criminals…
I’m not saying all the people, but we’ve got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70 percent of those had out-of-state IDs. They’re not coming from Charlotte.” Todd Walther, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police.
Thank you, Black Lives Matter. Division, hatred, rioting, looting, all of the things that are not North Carolina. When a white man killed 9 members of a black church, the community came together to heal. They worked hard at it – outsiders were the ones instigating hate, not the Charlotte community.
Now, once again, these vicious thug outsiders have descended on a city that needs to work out its own problems.
A friend who lives in Charlotte posted these comments on her email list:
“What is going on is not representative of the people of Charlotte. It is being instigated by outside special interest groups who use chaos and violence to try to further their causes. The family of the man shot has been begging the protesters to stop all violence.
It’s exactly what they did in Ferguson MO. Outsiders came in and burned, looted, and destroyed what the local people had built up. Including relationships. Charlotte is a great and safe city with great relationships between the races. The outsiders need to go home and allow the family of Charlotte NC to get through this peacefully with God’s help.” Joni Ames
A small group of people knelt to pray at the protests, but had to stop when someone from the protesters hit one of them in the head with something. Police used tear gas to disperse the crowd at that point.
