Across the Divide

After a group waving Blue Lives Matter and U.S. flags announced a rally on Route 9D in Beacon on Sunday (July 19), Black Lives Matter supporters organized on social media in response and lined the opposite side of the road. Beacon police officers walked along the thoroughfare to prevent any confrontations in the street.

  1. The picture of the sign that that you cannot read says “F THE POLICE,” not sure why they would show a picture of a sign you can’t read. Also note the U.S. flags on one side an the lack of on the other. Also present were Antifa Flags and an anarchist flag. Again, no U.S. flags present on one side. Makes you think!
