    SAN ANTONIO – A protest at Columbus Park downtown drew dozens of demonstrators who want to see the statue of Christopher Columbus removed. The city has a ban on outdoor gatherings of more than 100 people, and, as of Saturday, a 10-person limit on groups in public parks to help combat the recent surge in cases of COVID-19. However, when asked about the new limit on gatherings at parks, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said police would not be enforcing that at demonstrations. “We expect and hope that everybody will practice social distancing and wear masks to try to keep themselves healthy,” McManus said. “But as far as being able to exercise their first amendment rights, we’re going to allow that to happen, regardless of the ban.” Though the protest was organized in opposition of the Columbus statue, demonstrators also made comments about police. A smaller group of armed men...
