Ada Fisher is a Salisbury conservative who sits on the Republican National Committee. But as an African-American, she can identify with those who think the justice system is unfair.
She said her son Charles was 12 when he was riding his bike and stopped and questioned by two police officers.
“I said, ‘If this child was white you wouldn’t have stopped him,’” Fisher says she told the police.
She said such cases are a reason for the perception that the system is unfair. But she doesn’t think there’s a reason to attack police or anyone in authority.
Never miss a local story.
“Black lives matter, I’m all for that,” she says. “But so do the lives of everyone else matter.”
