Prince William police have declared an unlawful assembly as a protest continues in the area of Sudley Road and Sudley Manor Drive in the Manassas area.

Police are asking people to avoid the area and anyone who lives nearby to shelter in place.

There have been reports of protestors throwing objects at vehicles and police officers. 

At 10 p.m. the crowd has Sudley Road at Sudley Manor shut down in both directions.

In a live Facebook video from the scene just after dark, officers are seen spraying pepper spray into the crowd.

Another video on Twitter shows police deploying tear gas.

The lefts plan to destroy the suburbs like they did the big cities is working.

When objects are thrown and violent actions employed the message is lost, and it is rightfully relabeled as a RIOT!

These are terrorists, not protestors.

As far as the suburbs goes, it will be interesting to see how the armchair intellectuals and suburban "liberals" react when violence arrives at their doorstep. As has been promised.

Elect f’ing morons at various levels of government, set the conditions for only the rich to truly prosper, continue to allow/promote racism and class warfare, throw in a failed response to a pandemic and the accompanying depression-like economy, and here we are. Welcome to the most exceptional nation on earth.

The more the residents support progressives, the more of this you'll get.

Yep komrade del lee carter actually used his “position” to harass the police!

Also good ol Komrade carter - no face mask and no social distancing.

Manassas & Prince William county wanted liberalism, now they’ve got it!

PWCresident1, this kind of Marxist talk makes no sense when anyone can make themselves upwardly mobile if they look for the opportunities and work hard for it. Many of us have. There are always going to be a few rotten eggs in any basket, but just try protesting or rioting like this in many nations and you’d never see the light of day, again. I saw a man protesting in DC yesterday, carrying a sign that said, “Viva la Revolucion, Havana, Cuba.” You think they’re a country to be emulated? The fact that we can express ourselves and want to work to improve speaks volumes. We’ll never be perfect but we are the most exceptional nation on earth.
