“People are recovering. People are being very timid. They don’t really want to talk too much about it,” he said.
In a separate incident Sunday, the Harvest House bar called police after employees say a group with swastika tattoos walked in. When a manager asked the group to leave, they reported, one of the men punched him in the face.
“I was angry. I was very angry,” said council member Deb Armintor.
She plans to ask Denton City Council to officially condemn what happened, speaking out for those she says are under attack.
“There are a lot of people who are not out here tonight because they don’t feel safe being out here,” she said.
Denton police are investigating Sunday’s incident as an assault. Councilmember Armintor says she’d like to request they look at it as a hate crime.
Police were present and visible throughout Tuesday evening’s rally. It remained a peaceful event.
