The real story here is that the Raleigh police union considered a boycott at all. Props to the members for opposing this garbage unanimously, but come on.
Members of the Raleigh police union on Tuesday night voted unanimously not to boycott security work for Beyoncé’s concert at Carter-Finley Stadium in May, according to union spokesman Rick Armstrong.
Matthew Cooper, a Raleigh detective and president of the Raleigh Police Protective Association, said after the meeting that the union fielded input from “a wide spectrum of officers” on a possible boycott.
Although there are concerns over the perceived “anti-law enforcement images” Beyoncé used in her performance and in her most recent music video, Cooper said, union members took an oath to protect and serve all citizens regardless of their political beliefs.
Two bands of severe storms bearing down on North Carolina Wednesday are threatening to produce tornadoes and large hail and prompted some schools to send students home early.
The strong storms moving up from the South will bring sustained winds of 20-25 mph, placing the eastern part of the state under a wind advisory–separate from the tornado threat–from 9am to midnight. The threat of tornadoes, though, is likely to cause a tornado watch later in the morning.
