People giving the middle finger to law enforcement during the unrest in Baltimore isn’t necessarily an unusual sight — but from people inside a church?
That’s exactly Maryland sheriff Mike Lewis told TheBlaze he saw Tuesday night.
Lewis traveled with deputies from Wicomico County after Gov. Larry Hogan requested law enforcement assistance in Baltimore.
He said he saw a group of black and white individuals standing behind the glass doors of Simmons Memorial Baptist Church, and “five or six” of them gave him the middle finger just before 11 p.m., well after the city-wide curfew had been imposed.
The sheriff said that one of the white individuals grabbed her crotch and mouthed the words “eat my ‘P’ effing pig” and that another one — who wore the medic band around each arm — raised both of her hands and gave him a double middle finger.
Lewis told TheBlaze that after he pulled out his cellphone to photograph what he was witnessing, most of the people in the doorway turned and “fled,” but three remained, one holding up a black T-shirt over her face. Behind them read a sign, “Welcome to Simmons where you can ‘Experience the Difference.’”
