KCPD DISARM ANTIFA PROTESTERS AMID PEACEFUL KANSAS CITY 'STAND UP FOR CHARLOTTESVILLE' RALLY!!!
Lots of police and very little drama continued at Washington Square Park this afternoon.
Here's the sitch according to one of our favorite former council dudes:
"Several of the AntiFa members armed with weapons. She also said the religious groups, which included people from various faiths, spent time praying, singing and offering peace.
“We were doing it because it’s just time for the faith community to step up,” Senior Pastor Zion Grove Baptist Church Michael Brooks told Fox 4."
"Citing a city ordinance, Kansas City police ORDERED antifa members to remove ammunition from their firearms at a rally Saturday in Washington Square Park."
All things considered and JUST AS WE PREDICTED . . . It was a mellow affair.
