Twitter reports of white supremacists shooting protesters in Minneapolis

#4thprecinctshutdown

According to reports on Twitter, several armed white men were asked to leave the BLM protest over the Jamar Clark shooting and, while leaving, turned and shot at the crowd, injuring several protesters.

There is a fair amount of bullshit and fake accounts among the reports, making it difficult to discern what is going on.

I don't know if someone got pictures of them at tonight's protests, but look at the video these guys made about last Thursday's protests:

Edit: I posted the wrong link before. Sorry.

2. Three people were shot near Black Lives Matter protest site

http://www.startribune.com/several-people-were-shot-near-black-lives-matter-protest-site/353121881/

Three protesters were shot Monday night near the Black Lives Matter encampment at the 4th Precinct station in north Minneapolis.

According to Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter, “a group of white supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights.”

When protesters attempted to herd the group away from the area, Noor said, they “opened fire on about 6 protesters,” hitting four of them. The shootings occurred near an alley about a block away from the precinct station.

... A Minneapolis police officer on the scene said that three people were shot, and that all injuries were non life-threatening.

7. Horrible

I'm afraid for the people putting their lives on the line for justice. The white racists no longer feel they need to hide their murderous rage. The rhetoric from the leading GOP contenders fuel the hatred.

9. The way the witness described the shooters behavior makes think they were Police officers

 

If that's the case, it wouldn't surprise me after all the Police Union head called for protesters to be 'silenced'

11. Why is this not getting more votes and attention?

 

You have police officers or white supremacists opening fire on black protesters and it only gets 3 votes so far?

What the hell DU?

15. Maybe people are waiting for facts before reacting

There have been many cases where people overreact here on DU only to find out the facts are different from what was first posted.

If it turns out to be true, there will be plenty of popular threads about it.

16. If a bunch of white folk got shot you wouldnt be asking for people to "wait for the facts"

18. You couldn't be more wrong

When "white people" have been shot, there are people who wait for the facts. There are also people who jump to conclusions and panic over things that later turn out to be false.

23. Because, love,

it's the middle of the night. I'm just now crawling out of bed in California where it's 4:10 am (yes, I wake up freakishly early).

I was just reading my FB feed and saw the video of the two guys saying they were going to shoot (some word I've never heard of that, I guess, is supposed to be a pejorative towards Black people). Had no idea what it was all about the came to DU to find out.

Give us time to catch up.
