KKK to March Branson

Branson Will Allow KKK to March

Granting the permit was something the city's African-American Police Director wishes he 'didn't have to do'

Branson will be allowing the Ku Klux Klan to march next month in protest of recently removed Confederate names from city parks.

The move that will likely become increasingly controversial as the day of protest nears was OK'd by Branson Police Director Toney Armstrong, himself a black man.

"Obviously, being an African-American man, it's something I wish I didn't have to do," he explained.

"But I took an oath to serve and protect,
and I did not take an oath that I would protect certain groups of people."

But while signing off on the event is simple enough, gearing up for it won't be.

Branson City police will be taking a refresher course in dealing with riots, as the last KKK march through Branson took place back in 1998. And while the damage inflicted on the city in that march was mostly taken up by anti-KKK protesters, not the KKK itself, it matters little from a crowd control perspective.

"We have known from the beginning that denying this application would result in a legal fight on constitutionality," stated Branson City Attorney Herman Morris. " We have all, however, been very attune to the critical role the Memphis Police Department will play in a proposed demonstration."

It is about time that although not popular all groups of people have the right to free speech. If Anti-KKK groups cause the most damage than lock their ass up and throw the book at them. If they were having one of them so called million man marchs that the blacks are popular with doing and the white man caused trouble they would throw the book at them and throw away the key. Maybe they could charge a few black people that will cause problems with Hate Crimes, like they would if the problem maker were white.
