A MESSAGE FROM DONNIE
As do most Americans, I whole heartedly support the right for people, and some might even say the duty, to assemble peaceably, however, damaging public and private property, in my opinion, can in no way be considered peaceably.
I served as Wake County Sheriff for 16 years, and I was shocked the night I saw rioters burning and looting in downtown Raleigh without being arrested. As the chief law enforcement officer in Wake County, my job would have been to protect the citizens, their businesses, and their property. I would have swiftly and professionally arrested these individuals.
