A white woman was filmed calling police on a group of young black protesters who were holding a “Stop the Violence” rally over the weekend when they stopped at a gas station to get drinks.
The Charleston City Paper reported that according to the protest’s organizer, the young “Stop the Violence” protesters were asked to wait outside after handing out anti-violence fliers at another location.
They complied, but a man and woman who pulled up in a pickup truck began calling police anyway.
“I thought she was playing at first,” activist Jonathan Thrower, who also goes by the name Shakem Akhet, told the City Paper. “I didn’t really think that was gonna happen.”
In the audio of the 911 recording, the woman is heard telling police that “it’s like a riot out here” and that although she wasn’t in danger, the youthful demonstrators were “absolutely destroying the outside” of the store.
North Charleston Police responded to the call, the City Paper noted, but the crowd had already dispersed and no report was taken.
The report noted that North Charleston Police Chief Reggie Burgess has regularly attended “Stop the Violence” rallies in the region — the most recent of which was held on October 1 “in honor of a 2006 domestic violence incident that took the life of a woman and her four children.”

Nicolle Wallace tells Colbert why she cursed at Fox News host Laura Ingraham — and that she left the GOP
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace appeared on Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" Wednesday after spending hours analyzing the impeachment hearings that began that morning.
One of the first things Colbert asked about was the recent smackdown from Wallace about Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guests going after Col. Alexander Vindman. Ingraham proposed that because Vindman was born in Ukraine that he was somehow a traitor to the United States for coming forward about President Donald Trump's admitted crimes.
‘It takes a small mind to want to out a whistleblower’: Rachel Maddow blasts Trump and GOP
In an analysis of the first day of impeachment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained to late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon why the impeachment hearings were a lot more rational than she anticipated.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) switched committees just to appear and ask questions and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) humiliated himself, but aside from that, Maddow said she was surprised there were reasonable questions, and everyone remained calm.
Seth Meyers mocks Devin Nunes saying Dems wanted to find nude photos of Trump: ‘Literally no one wants that’
"Late Night" host Seth Meyers ridiculed Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his absurd line of questioning that accused Democrats of the impeachment is the same as the Russia scandal.
Nunes said that Democrats want the world to forget about their efforts to obtain nude photos of Trump, something Meyers countered with actual sense.
"Hey man, I guarantee you no one wants nude pictures of Donald Trump," Meyers said. "I'm not crazy about clothed pictures of Donald Trump. Also, I have to believe that if there were nude pictures of Donald Trump, the first person to show them would be Donald Trump. He'd probably hold a press conference with a giant poster board."
