  1. Journalists are just doing their freaking jobs, they should not be arrested for reporting on the protesting…. CURFEW OR NO CURFEW…..

  2. those policer officers are scared. North Carolina’s population 71.2% White American, 22.1% African American, 1.6% American Indian, 2.8% Asian, and 9.1% Hispanic or Latino (of any race). black drivers face a 170% increased chance of being searched compared to whites. that seems un-American?

  3. They should arrest everyone including all the journalists. None of them have any business being there.
