An Elizabeth City, North Carolina police officer allowed a car through a permitted protest Monday, and the driver struck two protesters.
Peaceful protests in Elizabeth City for Andrew Brown Jr, whom three Pasquotank County deputies killed on April 21, have been ongoing for more than a month.
Police have been in the front and behind the protests every day since the start, but one officer seemed to have had enough with protesters when he wasn’t doing his job and allowed a car to go right past him.
According to a video obtained by The North Carolina Beat, a white Nissan Sentra can be seen at a red light west of the intersection of Ehringhaus and Griffin street and then proceed into the protest, hitting a protester. (Watch The Video Below)
In another video, as the car tries to flee, you can see two protesters ahead in front trying to stop the vehicle from leaving, and the driver hit yet another protester.
The second victim has not yet been identified.
