In an effort to insure peace when outside groups protest in Murfreesboro on Saturday (10/28/2017), in a voice of unity--many businesses in the downtown district are closing that day to show outsiders there is no desire to encourage hate.
Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland commented . . .
Police agencies are keeping motorized traffic from the area by cordoning off all entrances to the city starting at Broad, and comparable distances from all other entrances to the historic district.
Other plans that will not be covered by media reports, are in place to maintain peace.
