Protesters gathered at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Tuesday evening to show their support for the removal of the ‘Silent Sam’ statue. The left is targeting yet another Confederate statue.
Protesters were chanting “tear it down!” regarding the Confederate statue.
Fox News reported at least one arrest so far, however; an updated story reports more have been taken into custody.
Early on in the protest, people from both sides have tense discussion:
Protesters beating on the door where police placed a protester under arrest. The violent mob chanted “Let him go!” “Let him go!”
Alt-left protesters beat on police van demanding the police release the arrested protesters inside.
WRAL reported that the police had to physically remove the people from the front of the van.
