Representatives have been receptive to the idea of creating a buffer zone in front of K-12 schools, Hickman said.
An article published Wednesday about a group protesting in front of Norman High School stated that the group had been asked to move across the street by both Norman Public Schools and the Norman Police Department. This information was provided by Norman Public Schools administration. However, a representative from the group said they were only asked to move by Norman Public Schools and not the Norman Police Department. Additionally, the group is known as Abolitionist Society of Norman and their cause is Project Frontlines.
