After hearing about the incident with the East Providence police, Black Lives Matter is planning a loud protest at the East Providence police station at high noon Wednesday. This will be the second time in two weeks BLM will be in the East Bay. Last week, BLM was in Barrington after depetro.com broke the story of a violent altercation between two neighbors in Rumstick point.
