Community activists had organized a peaceful “unity rally” in New York on Wednesday that included several police officers and clergy joining the march. However, several anarchists were laying in wait with bats and hijacked the peaceful rally injuring several police officers.

Now the Community activists who organized the rally want to find out who these anarchists are?

The Daily Wire explains:

Community activists who organized a “unity rally” in New York Wednesday that ended when anti-police protesters ambushed officers in a shocking, violent attack on the Brooklyn Bridge, say they’re concerned outside agitators planned to hijack the protest — and the New York Police Department is seeking information on a group that appears to have dropped off a box of baseball bats for disrupters to use.
