Police In North Carolina Arrest Peaceful Protestors, Declare Protesting A ‘Non-Essential Activity’
Protesters rally for NC to reopen. One woman arrested for violating governor’s order.
More than 100 protesters rallied in downtown Raleigh to reopen North Carolina on Tuesday, describing Gov. Roy Cooper’s stay-home order as an unconstitutional overreach that will kill the state’s small businesses.
But at roughly 12:30 p.m., police asked protesters to disperse.
“You are in violation of the executive order,” said a police captain. “You are posing a risk to public health. If you do not disperse, you will be taken and processed at Wake County jail.”
Most of the crowd began leaving after a third warning.
