Race Pimp William Barber Once Again Arrested at NC Legislature

More than 100 protesters swarmed the state Legislative Building on Tuesday to call for better health-care coverage on the state and national levels, leading to the arrests of 32 people, including the Rev. William Barber, president of the state chapter of the NAACP.

Most of those arrested were there to stage a sit-in and refused to clear the hallways outside legislative leaders’ offices. Others were taken into custody after refusing repeated requests to stop shouting.

All those arrested were charged with second-degree trespassing, for blocking Senate leader Phil Berger’s office or refusing to leave Senate Rules Committee Chairman Bill Rabon’s office, said Capitol Police Chief Martin Brock.

The gathering was organized by the NAACP and other advocacy groups, and was meant to call for reforms of health-care law, including the N.C. General Assembly’s refusal to expand Medicaid coverage to about 130,000 people.
