The Stafford County Sheriff's Office has called an unlawful assembly on Garrisonville Road after they say a crowd of Black Lives Matter demonstrators became rowdy.

The protestors blocked traffic and threw objects at vehicles on Garrisonville Road in the area of Stafford Marketplace, according to the sheriff's office.

Demonstrators at the scene posted photos on social media of deputies in riot gear threatening arrest and walking through parking lots with police K9s.

"There is currently a large law enforcement presence on Garrisonville Road. We are asking residents to avoid the area," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

Contrary to the article, the crowd was not black lives matter but the same people and crowd that was praying with the sheriff. Also the crowd only became rowdy when a protest was about to be ran over but a car who refused to wait and disregarded the people protesting. Many will change the narrative which just goes to show how the system is failing.
