70% Of Charlotte Arrests Don’t Live There

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Fraternal Order of Police spokesman Todd Walther said Thursday on CNN that 70% of those arrested in race riots in that city this week were not locals.

“This is not Charlotte that’s out here,” he said. “These are outside entities that are coming in and causing these problems. These are not protestors, these are criminals.”

“I’m not saying all the people, but we’ve got the instigators that are coming in from the outside. They were coming in on buses from out of state. If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made last night. I can about say probably 70% of those had out-of-state IDs. They’re not coming from Charlotte.”
