Both Massachusetts state and local law enforcement did not have prior knowledge of the white supremacist group Patriot Front’s march last weekend, Mayor Michelle Wu said in a press briefing on July 5.
On July 2, members of the Patriot Front, a white supremacy group, marched through the streets of Boston. During their march, members of the group attacked Charles Murrell, a Black artist, at the intersection of Dartmouth and Stuart streets, near Copley Square.
