A North Carolina man who plowed through a crowd of street-blocking protesters Monday will not be cited, according to authorities.
The protesters -who did not have a permit to close the road- were unharmed after the driver of the offending pickup shunted them off of the road.
The driver, who was towing a trailer near the Durham County Jail, accelerated after protesters blocked his path and struck his (rather expensive) pickup with signs.
While the authorities aren’t planning to cite the man, the protesters can’t help but hide their scorn.
“There were kids there. There were people with different mobilities that weren’t able to run and pick up and move,” said protester Christine Hawn. “And so, everyone, no one was injured, but it was really scary and it was scary to see that blatant disregard for human well-being.”
According to WNCN, the assembly was organized by several groups, including Black Youth Project 100, the Inside-Outside Alliance and the Durham Beyond Policing Campaign.
