Akron, OH – Many peaceful protests took place in Akron, OH over this past weekend, but for 18-year-old Sam Borrell, that was not the case.
Sam (from Tallmadge) was hit by a pick-up truck on Saturday during the protest in downtown Akron. He sustained non-life threatening injuries, but the situation could have been so much worse.
“I’m in a lot of pain, but more than that I am angry at the situation.”
“I don’t think he had any reason to feel threatened. He might not have intended to hurt anyone but he had to have known he was going to.”~Sam Borrell
