The team you trust got ambushed by a Providence thug on live television Friday evening. While reporter Sam Read was live with an update on a police officer shot, a street punk grabbed the CH10 mic with obscene language for all to hear. Caution: graphic language in video below.
What is equally appalling was the silence by city officials at the disgraceful behavior by a street punk moments after a police officer was shot. If the punk who grabbed the mic was white wearing a MAGA hat and the reporter was black, Elorza and Raimondo would have held a press conference denouncing the disgraceful act.
The city of Providence was on full display for the state to see how far it ha fallen, yet crickets from the mayor and the governor. The reporter handled the incident with class and grace.
