Gee, who could’ve seen “gun violence” breaking out at a rally in support of a criminal who birthed a bogus racist movement?
A day of peaceful commemoration of the second anniversary of Michael Brown’s death was marred Tuesday night when gunfire broke out after a protester was struck by a motorist.
After a quiet morning vigil and evening church service, the night turned violent when a car speeding south on West Florissant Avenue struck a protester who had ventured into the street.
Others among the roughly 75 protesters began trying to cut off the car, which then reversed direction and tried to head north to avoid the crowd, according to several witnesses.
At that point, witnesses said, several protesters pulled out guns and began chasing and firing at the fleeing car.
Hmm, why are “peaceful” protesters armed?
“I just started screaming, and the bullets started flying, and I started screaming some more,” said Heather DeMian, of St. Charles, a regular protester who has been live-streaming Ferguson protests.
It appears the driver did not intentionally strike the protester, according to Ferguson spokesman Jeff Small, who said the woman is being “very, very cooperative” with police.
“By all accounts, her version of what happened seems to fit the version of what happened to a person driving down a busy West Florissant Avenue and not seeing a person standing there,” Small said.
He said there were bullet holes in the woman’s car, but no one in the vehicle was injured.
Small said no arrests were made, and that the extent of the injuries to the protester who was struck is unknown because the man was taken from the scene in a private vehicle.
So glad the Obama years have brought so much racial healing.
