Shelbyville bracing for arrival of hate group
Placeholder Image

TO THE EDITOR:
The Shelbyville Police Department is advising people not to come to Shelbyville on Oct. 28. They will be all hands on deck trying to contain the group of white supremacists who plan on demonstrating at the corner of Lane Parkway and North Main.
We all remember Charlottesville and the car driving into the crowd running over people.
Shelbyville itself is gripped in fear with many stores and businesses closing for that day. Most of the local citizens are now aware of what is about to happen and are choosing whether to stay and stand up peaceably to this tidal wave of hatred or simply stay indoors until it moves on to Murfresboro that afternoon.
There is one group that is oblivious to the advancing terror. Children are still happily playing and living their lives just like any other fall day. Children are not born hating. The hate groups are converging on Shelbyville to recruit young people and teach them to hate. The people I talked to feel like this reason alone is worth showing up for.
