Protestors chanting 'arm yourself or harm yourself' disrupt Mother Emanuel memorial (VIDEO)

WCBD-TV: News, Weather, and Sports for Charleston, SC

Almost a week after the deadly shooting at Mother Emanuel in downtown Charleston, protesters from out of town attempted to disturb the respectful scene at the church on Tuesday night. 

Protesters showed up to the memorial with megaphones chanting “arm yourself or harm yourself,” and “never forget, never forgive.” They marched from Marion Square to Mother Emanuel and they interrupted people paying respects at the mass shooting site.

Memorial attendees said the protesters were disrespecting the church and cursing in front of the church. One person said, “they’re very much going about it the wrong way, we had peace here in Charleston, everyone is coming together in love and unity… they need to leave our city.”
