Video attained by WMAR Baltimore News shows the scout group, carrying homemade signs and exhibiting their right for peaceful protest, being harassed by adult supporters of the organization. A male troop leader can be seen defending the girls and trying to de-escalate the situation.
"You guys, no racial comments, okay?" he can be heard saying in the video. "Saying that they belong in Baltimore because they're black, that is wrong. Please don't say that, okay?"
Buddy for Life Co-Director Jen Callahan accused the girls of being "coached".
"The Girl Scouts came out and had some things to say, I understand that they were coached with what to say," she said, a comment that was met with outrage.
"Hey, they're kids!" someone can be heard shouting in the tape.
"Excuse me, the Girl Scouts were not coached," added troop leader Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich.
"Miss Jayne never told us what to say," said Lily Talley, 11, who spoke during the meeting. "And we actually thought of it by ourselves."
Mitchell-Warbrich has openly criticized the county's animal control center for a case of neglect that she previously reported.
