5 Shot In Minneapolis After #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Surround, Attack And Chase Group
Although it is not completely clear, the five people shot appear to be Black Lives Matter folk, none of the injuries are life-threatening.
This story is still developing but the Black Lives Matter crew has already blown it into something else. There was an ongoing protest by the BLM at the 4th precinct in Minneapolis over the shooting of Jamar Clark. The BLM claims that that 3 masked ‘white supremacists’ who had been at their protest before now came wearing bullet proof vests and masks and shot them. This is what they told media and police, some media already running with the ‘white supremacist’ story. Media really should know at this point that they need to fact check everything that the BLM says.
The video, taken from a livestream at the protest, shows that the protesters surrounded this group of men, began questioning who they were, punched them and chased them prior to any shooting. We do not know that the group was white, and we do not know yet that they are the ones that did the shooting, since the only source for said information is the BLM.
In the Star Tribune, the protesters described this event as trying to ‘herd the group’ away from the protesters, although no one apparently asked the protesters-why are you doing that?
The BLM propaganda wagon is in full swing on this, but let’s see if facts will out…
