Protests continue Tuesday in York City


YORK, Pa. (WHTM) — York prepared itself for another day of protests as barricades were placed on sidewalks around Continental Square in York on Tuesday, while a city banner saying “Racism is Not Tolerated Here” was hung above the square.

Some businesses have also put up art supporting the protest.

Monday night, hundreds of people began a march at Penn Park, moved to the police station, then became a parade down George Street, which still had cars occupying the road. The roads were not blocked off, which meant that vehicles had to yield way for protestors.

The march took a violent turn when a fight broke out between a protester and a driver. Several people swarmed around the car in a scuffle. The commotion eventually resulted in someone jumping on the vehicle and shattering the rear window.

Police are now investigating that fight.
