MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A northern Nevada sheriff widely criticized for mishandling a conflict with the county library over the Black Lives Matter movement is encouraging all sides to peacefully express their views at a weekend demonstration planned outside his office.

Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley came under fire last week after he posted a letter on his office’s website telling the library not to bother calling 911 for help after the library considered supporting the movement.

Coverley later rescinded the threat, saying his department would continue to respond to all 911 calls.
