Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “7 men arrested after allegedly harassing Black family on Oregon beach”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Police in Lincoln City, Ore., said this weekend that they arrested 7 men on various charges after a group of white people they were a part of allegedly harassed a Black family on Independence Day by using racial slurs and Nazi salutes.

The local police department said on Sunday that the men had been arrested after their group taunted a Black family the night before “by yelling racial slurs at them, insulting them and using Nazi salutes towards them” at nearby a local beach. 

The office said cops had been called to the beach initially after receiving a report about the same group shooting illegal fireworks and causing a disturbance. Upon their arrival, the office said that the “highly intoxicated group” had also begun to surround the responding officers.

Amid the chaos, the agency said officers at the scene were able to form “a line between the group of white persons and the black family allowing the black family to safely leave the beach and return to their room.” “During this time several in the group of white persons continued to taunt the officers, trying to challenge them to fight. Other members from the group of white persons then began shooting off multiple large illegal aerial fireworks in front of the officers,” the department continued. 

“After several more officers arrived on scene, they moved in on the confrontational and highly intoxicated group and began placing them under arrest for a variety of criminal charges,” the office added.
