Black Lives Matter protestors started a fire Wednesday night just outside the Rockhill Police Department building in South Carolina. This was in retaliation for the arrest of a man that police allege was dealing drugs.

A woman on a megaphone was reportedly heard instructing protestors to block the road if firefighters arrived. Later, police cleared a path for firefighters to extinguish the fire.


Rick Price, the man arrested for Possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and marijuana, was arrested earlier that afternoon according to a police report. Police already had him under surveillance, and pulled him over when he made an illegal turn. Because of his priors, police involved their K-9 unit to sniff out the presence of drugs.

Price’s brother Travis Price was also arrested. He arrived on the scene in an attempt to retrieve his things from the car. Police charged Travis with hindering police. Officers did not deploy weapons or their K-9 unit on either brother.

Two more staffers are reportedly leaving their jobs in Vice President Kamala Harris’ office, according to the Washington Post. The news comes just after Harris’ chief spokeswoman, Symone Sanders, announced her departure.

“Symone Sanders, the senior adviser and chief spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, is expected to leave the White House at the end of the year, according to five administration officials familiar with the matter,” Politico reported.

In addition to Sanders, “Peter Velz, director of press operations, and Vince Evans, deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs in the vice president’s office, have also told others in the vice president’s office that they are leaving, according to two administration officials,” the Washington Post reported.

Earlier this week, Sanders officially announced her departure in a note to the Vice President’s team.

“I’m so grateful to the VP for her vote of confidence from the very beginning and the opportunity to see what can be unburdened by what has been. I’m grateful for [Harris chief of staff] Tina [Flournoy] and her leadership and her confidence as well,” Sanders wrote. “Every day, I arrived to the White House complex knowing our work made a tangible difference for Americans. I am immensely grateful and will miss working for her and with all of you.”

The news comes just weeks after Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne filed her resignation.

“Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official stated. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

“Harris’ office has been beset by disorder, bad press, and, at times, internal frictions,” Politico reported, adding, “ … in recent weeks, chatter has grown increasingly loud that Harris wasn’t positioned well to be Biden’s heir apparent in 2028 or, if he opts not to run again, in 2024.”
