The emergency alert issued by Morrisville says, “Due to protest rallies taking place in the state capital of Trenton expect increased traffic, crowds, detours and closures.” 

“Avoid the area” the alert said.

Throughout Saturday and Sunday law enforcement, local, and state officials have been discussing plans on how address the potentiality of demonstrators crossing the bridge into Morrisville, sources told the publication. 

One such proposed plan was to close the Trenton bridge as 3 p.m. approached, although there is no official word from confirming the plan. 

Officials from the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission have yet to respond to requests for comment on their plans if protesters approach the crossing. 

 Morrisville Borough officials have been working from the municipal building throughout the morning planning, sources confirmed. 

On Saturday, Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub released an open letter to county citizens saying “People have the right to express their anger through peaceful assembly, but I don’t understand it when lawless people co-opt peaceful protests by pillaging and burning the communities around them.” 

Attempts to reach Morrisville Chief of Police and Emergency Manager George McClay so far have been unsuccessful this morning.

  1. The key paragraph may be “Attempts to reach Morrisville Chief of Police and Emergency Manager George McClay so far have been unsuccessful this morning.”

  2. Well ain’t nobody came bro Morrisville and ain’t nobody loot bucks ,so what are these fool’s talking about?I know.

    1. The purpose of writing a comment is to communicate meaning to others. But your grammar, punctuation, and word choice made your comment unintelligible. Care to try again? This time in standard English? You may have had an interesting point of view, but it was completely obscured.

  3. How racist can we people in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania be?

    People in New Jersey are welcome as we say stop killing people.

    I am old. George Floyd was young. Let us grieve his murder, and work with police who want to protect and serve.

    Vote racist leaders out of office.

    Sing redemption songs. Mourn together.

    1. On the basis of what evidence are you implying that Pennsylvanians are racist? I see nothing in the article or comments that would lead me to that conclusion. I see only that Morrisville issued an advisory regarding peaceful protestors coming over a bridge from Trenton. It appears to me that racism lives within you so deeply that you presume it in others.
