Floyd Vigil Attracts Over 100 Participants

June 6th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

A Saturday evening vigil to honor the memory of George Floyd, how he died, and to protest racism took place peacefully.

WCBC's Chris Myers noted the crowd was well over 100 at the Mechanic Street end of the Cumberland Mall.  Speakers included Mayor Ray Morriss, who complimented the organizers and the tone of the city during the difficult times.   Morriss also said there was work to be done on the racism front, but said the City Police here had done a good job.

Myers was able to capture photos of the event for…

    I don’t know how anyone is going to handle wearing a facemask when the weather gets hot because I don’t think many in that pic will wear one.

    This is unsurprising as there was little else to do in town and nothing worth looting in downtown.

      These local protests are completely antithetical to everything WCBC stands for.

    CPR basics. If someone is able to verbalize they cannot breathe then they are in fact breathing.

      I didn’t know you were an in-person witness to what happened to George Floyd. Bottom line is that if George were white he would still be alive.

        > WOW, no who is a racist???? Black on black killing is 100 times more likely than a black person being killed by a white cop! I hope the Minneapolis Police are disbanded so morons like you see how much black lives matter really gives a shit!

    btw, Did Cumberland ever kick Officer Michael Cessare to the curb?? He was/is a lawsuit waiting to happen. Cessare has some real mental issues and is a thug chomping at the bit to hurt people. A real sick p.o.s. with real attitude problems.

    Popcorn – there was none available. This was a peaceful memorial service. For those who weren’t there, you know nothing of the good that was promoted. As the saying goes, “If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.” Amen.

    Mark’s macroaggressions are triggering. I hope Biden outlaws name calling to protect my feelings.

      Needless to say no one wants a country where the police are not held accountable, but if volume holds any value in the discourse where is the outrage over the 1000’s of blacks that are killed in the big cities every year let a lone the 1000 black babies that are aborted EVERY DAY. Not saying one live is more valuable than another but obviously the two vastly out number the number killed by police. Do their live’s matter any less?

        > So Dave do we ignore police murdering Blacks just because you’re peeved that women have the right to control their bodies??

          > Hey MARK, how many police have murdered blacks??? Do tell dumb ass. Because blacks murdering blacks happens all day every day. But you are to stupid to know that aren’t you? Go fall on your knees and beg BLM for forgiveness.

          So Mark if the Supreme Court ruled that white police had the constitutional right to kill blacks you would be OK with that? I don’t think so, wrong is wrong no matter what the courts say! If you would ever open up that closed bigoted mind of yours you might learn something. But just keep on saying people are saying things that they didn’t say and sticking your fingers in your ears and saying bigot, bigot as loud as you can, cause no one else can possibly have any valid options but you, because you know EVERYTHING. Grow up, if you can’t play with the other children get off the playground!
