Springfield Rallies Against Hatred And Racism

An anti-racism and anti-hatred  demonstration was held in Springfield, several days after a rally to  save a Confederate statue in Charlottesville, Virginia turned deadly.  

Hundreds of people gathered at the intersection of State and Walnut  Streets yesterday at an event organized by Arise for Social Justice.  

Some carried signs calling for the firing of Springfield Police Officer  

Conrad Lariviere, who commented on Facebook over the weekend that he was  happy about people being hit by a car at the rally that resulted in  dozens of injuries and one fatality. 

Lariviere has since apologized.
