Exercising Their Rights

Two simultaneous events took place Sunday afternoon. At left, A line of some 40 vehicles paraded through Ste. Genevieve to support law enforcement and other emergency personnel. At right, a second Black Lives Matter [BLM] protest took place on Highway 61. There were no reports of incidents at either. The protest was said to be nearly all local, although two gun-wielding participants took part. The parade included many Trump banners, Blue Lives Matter signs and a couple of half-US-half Confederate flags.  (Photos by MARK EVANS/Herald staff)
