This evening in downtown Warrensburg, Missouri around 150 individuals gathered to protest the circumstances of the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.
The march was scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m. Warrensburg Police, Johnson County Sheriff’s Department deputies, and Missouri Highway Patrol officers were present. There were drones. The protesters marched south on Holden Street to the Quad on the campus of the University of Central Missouri. While on the Quad, next to the First Amendment plaque at the base of the flag pole, one speaker offered a prayer and a second speaker spoke of history and change. The group then marched back to the Johnson Courthouse lawn where they kneeled for eight minute minutes, forty-six seconds. The march ended at about 7:15 p.m.
