As has happened in communities throughout the world, effects from the tragic death of George Floyd have also been felt in Seguin. So far, the protests here have been peaceful and without incident. That is a credit to those who organized and participated in the protests, and also to our local police department headed up by Chief Terry Nichols.

Yes, some windows were broken at one of our downtown businesses well after a demonstration ended. I feel secure in knowing that the incident had nothing to do with the protests, and everything to do with an alleged clueless person trying to garner personal attention. Very few crimes in Seguin have been solved so quickly. This alleged genius posted his act on social media and was quickly ratted out by the very people he was trying to impress.

Wow! This story did not age well. Perhaps the Seguin Gazette would be best to delete it.
