Minden Man’s Photos Show Peaceful Side of DC Protest
Minden resident Cole Tucker was in Washington, D.C. Wednesday. He talked about his part in the protest, which he said was only peaceful.
"I went out to support the President," Tucker said, explaining the reason for his DC visit. "He asked us to come and that's why I decided to go."
"I saw no one cross the line,"' he emphasized, I was there from 8 in the morning until 4pm, had hundreds of thousands of people around me and the few times I saw people approaching doing something over the line, there were Trump supporters there to get them to act respectfully and obey the law."
Tucker then said he didn't hear about the trouble until later in the day, explaining that cell service was limited at best. "We were unaware most of the day. At one point, when we got to the backside of the Capitol building...around 4 o'clock that my phone started working and I saw it in the news. But I was unaware. I think most of the people were completely unaware that any of that was going on."
