This is insane. BLM rioters armed with semi-auto rifles have shut down the street in #Kenosha and ordered a Sheriff’s vehicle to stop. Video by @livesmattershow. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/cDhmOBG1p9

Rioters yelled “gas us” and “you’re fucking cowards” at the officers in the vehicle, video showed. Law enforcement eventually deployed what appears to be teargas.
An officer was reportedly struck in the head with a brick in a separate incident during Sunday’s unrest in Kenosha, according to video tweeted by Twitter user KittyLists.
An attempted murder of a police officer caught on tape at another “racial justice” protest. Still not a peep from Democrats about this riot. ???????????????? https://t.co/rIEZ4yFQIH

Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers tweeted Sunday that Blake was “not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed” by police. (RELATED: Looters Argue With Armed Store Owners ‘About Why They Can’t Break In’ On Live TV)
While we do not have all of the details yet, what we know for certain is that he is not the first Black man or person to have been shot or injured or mercilessly killed at the hands of individuals in law enforcement in our state or our country.
