Maryland plans "Guardians of Free Speech" memorial at site of newspaper shooting

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted the ability to physically gather in any setting, including coming together to honor the five people killed in the Capital Gazette shooting on June 28, 2018.

Battling the public health crisis also has absorbed a significant amount of state and local government funds that have been hit with pandemic-related losses. But that hasn’t stopped the state from approving $300,000 to build a memorial called “Guardians of Free Speech” in Newman Park in Annapolis.
