There was another rally Thursday at the state Capitol to protest Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s continued use of emergency powers to slow the spread of COVID-19. We have more from Rick Pluta.
Car horns beeped, the sky occasionally thundered, and there were downpours. The Michigan State Police estimate 200-to-300 people showed up. Bruce Langlois of Lowell says he came because he wants to re-open his dog kennel and grooming business. His dog, Porter, wore a sign.
“He says let me go to doggie day care and let me get my hair cut.”
There were also pro-Trump and anti-abortion demonstrators. Some people carried guns, and a lot of people did NOT wearing face coverings. Governor Whitmer says gatherings like this threaten to cause a spike in infections and prolong the crisis.
