This past weekend we learned that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the President and Vice President-Elect. Many across the nation were greatly saddened while others were overcome by emotion by this news.

On Saturday, November 7, 2020, two groups of protestors were gathered at the state capital. Many were holding political signs as well as guns. At one point there was an estimation of fifty demonstrators who were heavily armed chanting, “Blue Lives Matter.”

Many Little Rock police officers stood along with the crowd while a few police vehicles barricaded the perimeter. There were no further actions of the event escalating more than the police monitoring.
