Letter to the Editor

Klark Byrd’s editorial “Calls for justice should involve all” (June 30) has several mistakes.

A protest is either peaceful or not.

peace·ful

Learn to pronounce

adjective

free from disturbance; tranquil.

“everything was so quiet and peaceful in the early morning”

not involving war or violence.

Illegally blocking a street, where someone that is legally driving their vehicle, so that the protestor can force his/her opinion on you is not peaceful. It is not lawful. In fact, it is illegal and at the least the police should have ticketed those breaking the law. You shouldn’t have your car damaged at an almost peaceful protest.

The protest was illegal as they had no permit. There was nothing “right” about an illegal protest.
