Sheriff's Charges Against Alamance March to the Polls Organizer Are "Retaliation," Groups Claim

Last edited Mon Nov 23, 2020, 08:07 AM - Edit history (1)

Gaining national scorn after pepper-spraying voters during a "March to the Polls" just wasn't enough for the Alamance County Sheriff's Office.

Now, the same cops are bringing felony charges against the march's organizer.

The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office announced that it is charging the Rev. Greg Drumwright with two felony counts stemming from the rally and march, which occurred on the last day of early voting in North Carolina. Drumwright, who has led multiple recent Black Lives Matter marches in Graham and Alamance County, was charged with felony assault with physical injury on law enforcement officer and felony obstructing justice. He was previously charged with a misdemeanor for failing to disperse on command.

Additional misdemeanor charges were brought against two other March to the Polls attendees. The sheriff’s department issued the charges “after reviewing additional video taken of the altercation and consulting with the Alamance County District Attorney," they claim.

2. I'll go ahead and repost the article in GD.

It seemed more like a local story, but I don't mind cross-posting.
