Black Lives Matter activists engaged in a spontaneous riot Wednesday after police arrested two Black males, Ricky Roderick Price and Travis Price, allegedly for selling drugs. During the arrest, one of the suspects violently resisted arrest. Activists latched onto a video of the arrest and promoted it on social media.
Rock Hill police say the men were arrested as part of a coordinated effort to get “violent and narcotic dealing offenders” off the streets. Local media appears to be completely censoring the arson attack.
Fire continues to burn. At one point a woman on a loud speaker asked protesters to block the street so firefighters couldn’t get in if they responded. No authorities are around. Protesters are huddled. @wcnc pic.twitter.com/obhKFnoRQo
