White police officers and community members wash the feet of black faith leaders in North Carolina to 'express humility and love'

White police officers and community members gathered to wash the feet of black faith leaders in North Carolina, echoing the Biblical story of how Jesus washed his disciples feet.

People of faith gathered for a unity march in Cary on Saturday, braving the summer heat to protest the brutal police killing of George Floyd and demand an end to racism.

Members of the Legacy Church Center, led by co-pastors Faith Wokoma and her husband Soboma, helped organize the unity prayer walk, where people gathered, observed eight minutes and 46 seconds of silence to mark how long a white cop had his knee on Floyd's neck in killing him, and prayed for the country.

As a part of the event there was a 'Washing of the Feet' ceremony where at least three white law enforcement officers and three other white attendees washed the feet of pastors Faith and Soboma Wokoma.

The comment that he did it “to show support for the church” is pure, unadulterated nonsense, and, as I have noted, everyone associated with the church, from the bishop on down to the visiting clergy that were gassed to make way for Trump’s walk over, have strongly and loudly objected to what he did. It was the act of a weak man trying to look tough. It had nothing to do with “support for the church.” Thankfully, it backfired spectacularly.
On Monday, June 1, the USPP worked with the United States Secret Service to have temporary fencing installed inside Lafayette Park. At approximately 6:33 pm, violent protestors on H Street NW began throwing projectiles including bricks, frozen water bottles and caustic liquids. The protestors also climbed onto a historic building at the north end of Lafayette Park that was destroyed by arson days prior. Intelligence had revealed calls for violence against the police, and officers found caches of glass bottles, baseball bats and metal poles hidden along the street.

To curtail the violence that was underway, the USPP, following established policy, issued three warnings over a loudspeaker to alert demonstrators on H Street to evacuate the area. Horse mounted patrol, Civil Disturbance Units and additional personnel were used to clear the area. As many of the protestors became more combative, continued to throw projectiles, and attempted to grab officers’ weapons, officers then employed the use of smoke canisters and pepper balls. No tear gas was used by USPP officers or other assisting law enforcement partners to close the area at Lafayette Park. Subsequently, the fence was installed.

These "peaceful" protesters where throwing projectiles like rocks and bottles with caustic liquids at the police. I'm not sure where you were educated, but I was taught that peaceful people don't attack cops with bricks and frozen water bottles and cache baseball bats and metal poles.

"Red Lines Host Anya Parampil speaks with Alec Karakatsanis, the founder and executive director of Civil Rights Corps and author of "Usual Cruelty: The Complicity of Lawyers in the Criminal Injustice System," about police efforts to win positive coverage amidst a nationwide uprising against their increased militarization and abuse of power. Alec reveals the shocking record of Chris Swanson, the Sheriff in Flint, Michigan, who won positive coverage for "joining" demonstrations in the city while personally profiting off the imprisonment of poor people of color in his jails. They also analyze the record of Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, who has emerged has a leading voice in mainstream media coverage of the protests.
