Black Lives Matter ‘Anti-Bullying’ Activist Arrested For Assaulting 74-Year-Old Man At Trump Protest

A 23-year-old woman shoved a geriatric man to the ground Thursday night during protests outside the Trump Hotel in New York City.

The woman, identified as Brooklyn resident Shacara McLaurin, allegedly pushed the older man to the ground after he yelled “All Lives Matter.” The incident happened around 10:45 pm, according to the Daily Mail.

An NYPD spokesperson said the man “suffered substantial pain and dizziness.”

The assailant was associated with Black Lives Matter and was noted for being an anti-bullying activist with the group Stomp Out Bullying. She began her work on this campaign after being the victim of an attack by her classmates in 2011.

McLaurin was arrested for felony and misdemeanor assault.

That was just one of many arrests last night, as some 65 people were reportedly taken into custody last night protesting around Trump Tower.

This incident fits with many other examples of Trump supporters being violently attacked for their beliefs. In Chicago, a man was brutally beaten due to others presuming he voted for Trump. An elementary school student in Virginia was hospitalized for voting Trump in a mock school election, and a high-school student in California was subject to a beating for supporting Trump as well.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election Tuesday night, protests have broken out nationwide, many of them violent riots.

Since being elected, Trump has responded to these protests in two tweets:
