This afternoon, starting a little before 2:00 p.m. in downtown Warrensburg, Missouri.
Warrensburg Police had a relaxed presence with officers at the south end of the demonstration at the intersection of Holden and Pine and officers at the north end of the demonstration on Holden Street. On occasion police vehicles would drive by.
A good p0rtion of the crowd wore masks. Some wore gloves. Social distancing was haphazard.
One individual, who had been praying on the sidewalk, took to Holden Street. Someone from the crowd held traffic while he prayed.
This was one of the largest crowds I’ve seen at a demonstration in Warrensburg in a long time. The group was much younger than usual, with a good representation of the older, experienced crowd – the usual suspects.
According to social media posts, after we left the demonstration, the crowd marched to the University and quite a distance around Warrensburg. One social media post estimated the crowd to number between 150 and 200.
