The protestors from Charlottesville just entered Prince William County. All seemed peaceful. I saw no covered faces or all-black attire. The small band were exuberant–they chanted and shouted their cause (mainly to get rid of Trump). Other than that, the horror stories that preceded them were exactly that–stories.
If Antifa was there, I sure didn’t see them. Everyone just seemed to be visibly shouting out what they thought was right.
I was impressed with the heavy police presence. The officers were courteous and vigilant. Traffic was backed up pretty far. I cut through and got turned around without having to get in the long line of traffic that had backed up.
Word to the wise–Protestors–don’t mess with commuters on Tuesday. They will not have sympathy with any cause if they are inconvenienced. That’s just how Northern Virginia commuters are.
