Six arrested after protesters jump on, injure officers in N.C., police say

Asheville police say several people were arrested after protests in the city Saturday night.

The protesters were calling for the defunding of police.

In a Facebook post, police said officers were standing by during the protests, when they got a call from an employee at the Renaissance Hotel on Woodfin Street, saying protesters were inside the hotel, blocking guests from entering, and breaking windows.

Police said when they arrived, protesters began walking down Woodfin Street towards the Buncombe County Courthouse.

They said a number of bicyclists surrounded an Asheville Police Department vehicle.

Police said the officer gave multiple warnings for the protesters to move, and when they did not, officers began making arrests.

The post said when officers began making arrests, a group of protesters jumped on top of officers and “began assaulting them.”

    This is the crux of the problem. Each of these “peaceful protestors” were released from custody under their own promise. They were acting in a violent manner and assaulted police officers and
    there will probably be no penalties for their actions being that the entire area of Asheville is very liberal.
    I think a couple of hits by a taser would have sent the right message to these communist. They are lucky they did not receive a bullet but police are so skittish on their own self defense lest they find themselves on the wrong side of a courtroom.

    Asheville has become the shame of Western NC.
    Started becoming that way back around thirty years ago when the perverts in San Francisco put up paid billboards declaring Asheville as the most tolerant town on the east coast and a great place to live for alternative lifestyles.
    Well,they are here and they have taken it over.
    I hope it can be taken back some day.
