VIDEO: Man Braves Charlotte Riots to Hug Officers
A man who travels to cities rocked by anti-police protests after officer-involved shootings and hugs police officers was on the streets of Charlotte Wednesday night as protesting transitioned to rioting.
Activist Ken Nwadike was wearing a "Free Hugs" shirt and is with a group that travels to cities during unrest, WSOC TV reports.
He tried to explain to others who were protesting why violence is not the answer.
"It's about staying neutral, that's what's important," Nwadike told them. "I see them (officers) as human beings, just like I see everybody on this side as human beings. We're all human. His uniform doesn't make him a robot. Just like your uniform, your skin color, doesn't make you a criminal."
