    All I've heard is that the vehicle has been found abandoned a few blocks from the scene.

    WSB is reporting that there is now a person in custody believed to be the driver.

    It is indeed terrible when these things happen. I hope the asshat who did this is prosecuted and receives the maximum punishment.

    On a side note though, violence occurring at demonstrations is fueled the rhetoric from liberals and the MSM.

    Don't think for a moment it can't happen.

    The clip I'm posting here is about protests going on right now in my small hometown of Thomasville GA, population of less than 20k, which is located about 4 hours South of Atlanta. It's normally a quiet little Southern town but apparently there was an officer involved shooting yesterday which resulted in the death of the shooting victim. Our middle daughter lives there, she called earlier to say she went to grab a bite to eat while on lunch break but couldn't because of the protestors. She was advised by her boss not to get out in turmoil which is occurring not far from where her office is located. She said there are LE vehicles everywhere. There are unconfirmed reports that 150 additional State Patrol officers have been assigned to the area.

    Not surprised that BLM and BP members finally got shipped in from out of town to stir things up. My brother called to say several were walking downtown with their AR-15's, which I have no issue with as long as weapons are legally carried. I don't think they did their homework on the area, it's not a place to get stirred up. There's a lot of lakes on those old plantation plots and gators gotta eat too.

    Weird... I'm glad it seems peaceful, but it also seems tense.

    I truly can't believe I'm seeing this from my small hometown. Think it can't happen in your neighborhood, think again. I've heard from several friends and a few family members that the tension is high with the likelihood of an escalation very strong. I'm fairly certain this protester was not a local but sent in from out of town. That's the main issue I have with it, settle your differences locally and among the local leaders instead of sending in outsiders who have no connection to the community.

    So far just local media coverage. Luckily everyone has mostly maintained a level head. As bad as it appears I have no issue with a legal, organized protest...that's what's so great about this country. I don't even have a problem with the AR-15 downtown, as long as he has a permit and is complying will all local carry ordinances. Sure, it looks scary but as long as he's not pointing it at anyone or threatening to shoot persons or property then I have no issue with it. Prayer for calmness and wisdom for the area.

    Gee, I wonder why this image hasn't been plastered all over the national news?

    I'll take a guess at the answer. Is it because the picture doesn't fit the MSM's narrative that leftist extremist groups are loving and caring people who don't condone violence?

    Nah... it's because it's a non-white who believes in open carry.
