Curfew Lifted in Charlotte by Charlotte Mayor

The curfew in Charlotte has been lifted [1] after a week of violence by agitators and ‘Black Lives Matter’ activists:

After a weekend of peaceful protests and demonstrations over the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts lifted the citywide curfew Sunday evening.

Roberts and the chairman of the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, Trevor M. Fuller, released a joint statement urging the community to continue to “show their unity in a peaceful and legal manner.”

Violent protests rocked the city last week after a police officer shot and killed Scott on Tuesday. North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency, calling in the National Guard.
