"Protest" planned in Newark today (May 30)???

Recommended Posts

Read on another site that there's a "protest" planned at 12:45 in Newark today.

Anyone going?

I was thinking of packing some sandwiches and taking the kids.  Maybe there will be some good speeches and reasonable discourse about the state of race relations and the force used by police.

I was listening to the NYPD Brooklyn scanner frequencies last night.  Things were pretty intense.  I was very impressed by the woman who was handling the dispatching.    She clearly was very effective  working under pressure.

I was just in Trenton to check on my wife while she was doing a job aat one of the fine retail establishments there...call it logistical support. ahem.  Nothing going on except couples pushing strollers in the sunshine.  Then again, the freaks don't like moving around before nightfall.
