Wednesday Night Protest March

About 11:30 Wednesday night, a group of about 30 protestors marched throughout downtown. According to this story in the Southern, they were not affiliated with the Black Lives Matter group and the signs they carried suggested general protest rather than a focus on the recent deaths.

Police presence was much more evident at this protest than at Sunday's, with police cars blocking cross traffic from Main as the marchers made their way north on Illinois, as well as police following the march as well, keeping cars from trying to make their way through the marchers.

As far as I know, no vandalism after this march, aside from a peace sign chalked on a light post.
