A peaceful protest was held in Montgomery County on Wednesday as calls for the resignation of Commissioner Joseph Gale grow.

Gale came under fire last week after he released a statement about last weekend's protests, calling the Black Lives Matter movement a "radical left-wing hate group."

Gale has also faced censure from his fellow county commissioners and calls for him to step down.

Gale has stated that he has no plans to resign.
