Debate protester plans return visit to Danville



October 17, 2012


The man arrested for refusing to come down from a tree during last week’s vice-presidential debate at Centre College has had the criminal charges against him dropped and plans to hold a pro-life rally Saturday in Danville.

Rives Grogan, 47, said during a telephone interview Tuesday that he believes the “Lord has His eyes on Danville” and he must return to continue delivering his pro-life message. . . .

Grogan, who estimates he has been arrested at least 20 to 30 times for protesting abortion and gay marriage, admits he climbed a tree at Centre College and shouted statements such as “Stop Obama! Over 50 million babies have been killed.” . . .

Grogan plans to vocalize his views at noon Saturday in front of the Boyle County Courthouse. . . .

Danville Police Chief Tony Gray did not have a comment regarding Grogan’s planned rally.
