Supporters, Protesters make peace

Posted: Updated:

Two groups, one made up of protestors, and the other supporters, showed up Thursday at the beginning of a going-away gathering for outgoing for BISD Superintendent Dr. Carrol Thomas.

The gathering was held at the Ozen High School Gym. 

Shortly after 5 p.m. B.I.S.D. police asked the groups to leave, but eventually said both sides could stay if they kept things civil. 

Both groups complied, shaking hands and making peace. 

As things calmed down both shared the front area of grass as they demonstrated with contrasting signs. 

Things became friendly enough that eventually, both groups were sharing water with each other.
