There was a Black Lives Matter rally (protest? march?) at Williams.blm

1) Could our readers provide some details? When was this event? Who organized it? Who spoke? What was it like?

2) When is the candle light vigil for the slain Dallas police officers?

3) If I were a BLM activist in Williamstown, the concrete change I would work towards is the disarming of the Williamstown police. Given how safe the area is, there is no reason why cops need guns on their hips. They are much more likely to be used in a tragic accident (a la Tamir Rice) than to save a life. Firearms would still be available, of course, in the car or at the station house for the very few situations that require them.
