Firefighter takes 'Free Hugs' message to protesters, cops

By Reece Murphy

Watching the Charlotte riots on TV Tuesday and Wednesday nights after the police killing of Keith Scott, Alfrick Seegars felt pulled in two directions.
As a 28-year-old black man, Seegars knew the passion and anger fueled by seeing yet another man of color on the news bleeding to death on the ground surrounded by cops.
As a firefighter with the city of Lancaster and County Fire Rescue, he also could appreciate the mix of fear and commitment to duty that the police and other first-responders on scene felt facing the angry crowd.
