Kudos to Charlottesville Mayor Nikuyah Walker for her stance in managing the most recent disruption at the City Council meeting.
She made some cogent points about due process, fair treatment, and effective means of protest.
Provocation for the uproar was powerful. The final speaker on the agenda at a public hearing originally was to have been Jason Kessler, organizer of the deadly Aug. 12 Unite the Right rally. He ceded his time to another speaker, who in turn ceded it to a third man — who turned out to be Christopher James Wayne, sentenced recently to five months in jail after being convicted of trespassing and destruction of property for removing the tarps on the Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson statues.
