RALEIGH – The Civitas Institute has posted an online analysis of who is being arrested at the recent “Moral Monday” demonstrations outside the North Carolina General Assembly.
Civitas analyzed arrest records and other public documents about the people arrested recently for disrupting the legislature. The results of this thorough analysis can be found at http://www.nccivitas.org/moralmonday/.
“Questions have been raised about who is really involved in these protests,” said Civitas President Francis X. De Luca. “We decided to get some answers. They provide surprising insights about those arrested and where they come from.”
The data and graphics on the site indicate their city and county, age, employment, sex, political party and more. Also, the Pick the Protester game allows viewers to test their intuition about mug shots of those arrested.
