Friction developing in Sister Bay over protests

Black Lives Matter protests have taken hold most notably in Sister Bay the past seven weeks, and there are signs that discord is beginning to grow between residents, visitors and the activists. A video featuring a man making a gun from his thumb and index finger and pulling the imaginary trigger was investigated by the Door County Sheriff’s Office earlier this week. Village President Dave Lienau says he hopes that kind of behavior ends immediately and reiterates the right of the protestors to assemble peaceably. Lienau does not know how long they will last.


Sister Bay foot traffic is returning towards normal levels. Crowds, heat, and COVID-19 strains could conceivably create an atmosphere ripe for an altercation the longer the protests continue.
