Trooper Assaulted, Six Arrested During Protest At Nebraska State Capitol

A state trooper was assaulted and six people were arrested during a protest at the Nebraska state Capitol on Friday.

The Nebraska State Patrol claimed on Friday that six people had been arrested after protesters violently interrupted a legislative debate in the building.

According to the State Patrol, “multiple observers in the opponent balcony began yelling” during the legislative debate before two people “threw objects over the balcony onto the legislative floor.”

The protest took place as Nebraska passed the “Let Them Grow Act” — a bill restricting gender transition procedures for those under the age of 19, as well as abortions after twelve weeks.
