Some highlights from the letter:
** We will request 400 members of the guard be deployed in our city…
** we will use them to prevent random acts of violence, property distraction, looting or other criminal activity
** We will post guardsmen along with police officers at 45 locations
** To keep all of our citizens and their homes and businesses safe
** FBI has been warned
Mayor Slay was happy to announce that local police agreed to half of the proposed rules put forth by the protesters.
The Mayor also said local police would honor safe houses and will consider churches to be sanctuaries.
That’s just a little crazy.
