Hundreds Gathered At FSK Mall For Reopen Maryland Rally – Delegate Cox Threatened With Arrest

A senoir law eneforcement official told Delegate Cox he would be arrested if he spoke at today’s rally

Frederick, Md. (DG) – Hundreds of people gathered at the FSK Mall Saturday morning for a rally held by local activists asking Governor Larry Hogan to reopen the state of Maryland amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Delegate Dan Cox was scheduled to speak at the rally, but told WFMD News that he was threatened with arrest if he spoke.

“ I was informed by senior law enforcement that I could be arrested for violating the Governor’s orders if I spoke today,” Cox said. “ I’m working on seeking injunctive relief so I can be permitted to speak as a Legislator without inference of threat of arrest.”

The rally started at the FSK Mall and participants were driving to Kent Island as a show of solidarity for reopening the state.

Reopen Maryland is a grassroots, nonpartisan group representing over 22,000 Marylanders. They say they’re advocating for Maryland families and businesses that are feeling the effect upon their civil rights with the shut down of nonessential businesses in the state.
