Following up on Ann’s previous post: The rally turned out to be a meeting in Sharpsburg town hall. Law enforcement personnel and the media were not invited, so I am not going to act as a spy and give any details. I’ll just say that it was an impressive and well-run community meeting. First-hand relevant stories were told, intelligent questions were asked, pertinent points were raised, nobody hogged the floor, and everybody was reasonable.
Next week, Saturday, December 15, there will be another meeting at noon in the town hall. This one will be open to law enforcement so perhaps citizens can get some of their questions answered. If you’re interested, come along no matter where you live. Not everybody at the meeting today was from Sharpsburg — I’m not — but everybody was disturbed at what happened to Terry Porter and wanted answers.
I want to mention also that a fund has been set up for Terry Porter’s legal defense. You can make out a check to “Friends of Terry” and give it to the drive-in teller at Jefferson Security Bank in Sharpsburg.
