Black Lives Matter Protesters “A Bunch of Criminals,” Says Coralville, IA Official, Shutting Down Police Reform Debate


A discusion about police reform was derailed on Tuesday in Coralville, Iowa when a council member spoke out against Black Lives Matter.

Accoring to Tom Gill, "BLM, to me, is a bunch of criminals, and I have zero tolerance for criminals."

This stands in stark contrast to other cities throughout the nation.

The Minneapolis city council, for example, voted unaminously to defund and abolish the police.

Asheville, NC voted to approve reparations for black businesses in the city.

Now, Coralville represents the "pushback" from the silen majority.
