Harry Rogers Wiki – Harry Rogers Biography

Harry Rogers is accused of driving his truck through protesters during a Richmond, Virginia demonstration Sunday evening as they peacefully protested racial injustice and excessive force used by police in the wake of the death of George Floyd, an African-American who was killed by a white police officer on May 25.

According to Henrico County Police spokesperson Lieutenant A. M. Robertson, “several witnesses reported that a vehicle revved their engine and drove through the protesters occupying the roadway.”

Life and Career

Rogers, who goes by the first name, Skip, stood outside of the Colonial Heights War Memorial in March of 2016 in a white robe with red trim and a KKK symbol on it while waving a confederate flag, according to the Progress-Index. At the time, Rogers wouldn’t say why he was doing it.
He told Progress-Index, “I’m exercising my First Amendment right,” he said, and that he planned to stand there “until my clothes get cold.”
In 2015 Progress-Index ran a story about Rogers who was an organizer of his version of the NAACP, which stands for National Association for Awakening Confederate Patriots. The group did a ‘confederate flag ride,’ with about 20 vehicles touting the flag through the town of Petersburg.
Roger’s version of the NAACP had a Facebook page but the last public posts are from 2015. In it he said that he and his followers had one common goal, which is to “bring America back to the way it’s supposed to be.”

Harry Rogers Arrested

The incident happened at about 5:45 pm on Lakeside Avenue. A 36-year-old man, Harry H. Rogers, was arrested for the crime and is currently being held at the Henrico County Jail.

Harry Rogers Truck Incident

According to Henrico County Commonwealth’s Attorney Shannon Taylor, Rogers drove recklessly on a median where people were protesting, drove up to protesters where he revved the engine, and then drove into the protesters.
Robertson said no one was badly injured, but one person was checked out at the scene by emergency medical workers and refused further treatment. That adult victim was the one who called the police.
According to someone who tweeted that she was a witness to Roger’s disrupting the protest, he also followed protesters and filmed them.
