White Supremacists Shoot #BlackLivesMatter Protesters In Minneapolis
The protests sprung by the death of Jamar Clark have turned violent — not because of the peaceful protesters, but because of the racists that hate the fact that people care about the senseless death of a Black man at the hands of police. Some white men in bulletproof vests were spotted opening fire on the protesters, and wounded five people in the process. Via MailOnline:
Five people have been shot near the site of an ongoing protest over the fatal shooting of a black man by a police officer, a Minneapolis Police Department spokesman said.
Jamar Clark, 24, was shot in the head by police on November 15 while allegedly wearing handcuffs, according to witnesses.
The five people shot just before midnight on Monday all have non-threatening injuries, according to Minneapolis Police Department spokesman John Elder. The shootings occurred near an alley about a block away from the 4th Precinct station, where protesters have been conducting a sit-in since Clark was shot.
Protesters who witnessed the violence claim the shooters were white supremacists.
Dana Jaehnert said one of the men had been wearing a mask and one was shouting ‘the “n” word’, she told The Star Tribune.
Black Lives Matter spokesperson Miski Noor said they opened fire on the group when a dozen protesters attempted to herd them away from the area. Jaehnert said that’s when she heard four gunshots. The attackers then fled.
A police source told KTSP that the suspects are believed to be white males wearing bulletproof vests.
SMH! These protesters can’t even peacefully air their grievances over the death of an unarmed, handcuffed Black man without racists coming to shoot them down. SMH.
