Governor sounds off on Sunday’s rallies at State House

Nikki HaleyCOLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) – SC Governor Nikki Haley released a statement late Sunday regarding the protests that had taken place at the State House:

“Last year South Carolina showed the power of listening, respect and kindness. Whether passing the nation’s first body camera law, removing a divisive symbol of the past from the Statehouse, or helping neighbors through the floods, our people rose to the occasion. While I appreciate the peaceful intent of this weekend’s rallies, I’d ask that we not put our fellow citizens or law enforcement at risk – which is exactly what attempting to block highways does. Instead, let us remember the feelings of respect, cooperation, and brotherhood that brought our state through the last year, and made South Carolina an example, for all the world, of how to move forward in the wake of tragedy.”
