Burlington mayor supports AR-15 arrest, chastises rock-throwing protesters - VT Business Magazine

A BLM protester tossed a rock at a Burlington police officer, and the crowd blocked emergency response vehicles. A man was carrying an AR-15 illegally near the protests. Mayor Miro Weinberger wants everyone to know he opposes both.

“I applaud the work of the Burlington Police Officers who investigated Jordan Atwood for repeatedly approaching the demonstrators in Battery Park while brandishing an assault-style rifle, and arrested him for violating conditions of a prior criminal release. “I am also concerned for the safety of the police and the general public after a rock was thrown at one of our officers last night, and the passage of emergency vehicles was temporarily blocked. I strongly urge all demonstrators to avoid a repeat of these public safety violations.”
