After 5 days of protests in Charlotte, NC over the fatal shooting of a 43-year-old black man by a black police officer, the Black Lives Matter gang brought its movement to the Carolina Panthers football game today. Outside the stadium a man was arrested for trying to bring a handgun into the stadium.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested Bruce Garmon when they found an unloaded pistol and a fully-loaded magazine in his bag outside the Bank of America Stadium on Sunday, according to WSOC.
Members of the National Guard were posted in front of one of the entrances to the stadium, where the Panthers are playing the Minnesota Vikings.
Carolina Panthers quarterback, Cam Newton, was spotted during warm ups wearing a shirt with a Dr Martin Luther King, Jr quote that read: ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’
Demonstrators made their presence known outside of the stadium as they kneeled during the national anthem.
It all comes on the heels of police releasing dashcam video of the shooting earlier in the week. You can view the videos by clicking here.
