Five local men who were arrested Monday during protests in Raleigh said Thursday night they went to jail because they oppose what they called unfair and harmful legislation by the Republican-controlled General Assembly.
“I went because I can’t believe what is happening,” said Stephen Boyd, a religion professor at Wake Forest University. “You don’t want to be arrested. It’s not fun, but I am honored to be a part of this.”
