The most shocking image from last Saturday’s Klu Klux Klan protest in South Carolina comes not from the KKK rally itself, nor the neighboring Black Panther party protesting, but in the shadows, while all the commotion swirled vehemently.
African-American Police Officer Leroy Smith offers assistance to a protester wearing a National Socialist movement T-shirt. The elderly anti-activist was suffering from a heat-related illness. Ofc. Smith didn’t let the man’s bigoted disposition deter him from protection and service.
