Huntsville Police Chief Mark McMurray said anarchists from out of town are responsible for escalating tensions that led to police clearing out protesters with gas and rubber bullets Wednesday evening.
The people who remained on the courthouse square after an NAACP rally earlier that evening and didnt leave after police told them to leave were prepared to fight, McMurray said in a news conference Thursday.
They set the precedent, McMurray said. They set the guidelines. They wanted to go hand to hand at that time. We do not want to go hand to hand with any citizen.

So where are all these ‘out-of-towners’ coming from?
Huntsville, Alabama, by the way. FYI
I’ve always found people in Huntsville to be particularly decent sorts. Maybe the troublemakers are from Birmingham.
Right-The SAME ‘anarchists’ cultivated and emboldened by Liberals’ incessant and highly inflammatory rhetoric for the last 10 years.
Great question. Couldn’t find the answer, only that officials spotted numerous “out of state plates” on vehicles. Huntsville is 30 minutes from TN, and 1 1/2 hours from GA and MS.
The anarchists who came prepared and armed; theyre now going to another city to do the exact same thing, he said. They know how not to get arrested.
So the out of town anarchists didn't do anything that would warrant arrest, but locals did. I guess I can't say show me the anarchists because they don't have any.
I don't doubt that anarchists are there. I am wondering if authorities are using them as excuses for misbehavior by BLM and other groups. It is not PC to call out BLM. Well people need to grow a set. They are a racist group. And you bet your life they engaged in rioting, looting and arson.
Stop the buses at the city limit.
I got notified that UAB campus closed at 2 because of “protests”. Glad my kid is home in summer school.
They come in from all over.
Were those BLM anarchists? Or Antifa anarchists. Or, White Supremacist anarchists? Or, peaceful protestor anarchists?
I get confused.
If the police won’t do it...the people will.
Some years ago, WBC was going to protest a soldier’s funeral in our community. They used the back roads to get here....were intercepted by locals. They turned around and went back home.
