Gov. Lee authorities the National Guard

Gov. Bill Lee 

Gov. Bill Lee has mobilized the National Guard after the protests last night turned violent.

“At the request of Mayor Cooper, I am authorizing the National Guard to mobilize in response to protests that have now taken a violent, unlawful turn in Nashville," Lee said. "The threat to both peace and property is unacceptable and we will work with local law enforcement and community leaders to restore safety and order. This is not a reflection of our state or the fundamental American right to peaceful protest.”
