1. The police are out of control.

There is video at this link, and the police ambushed him and are speaking in somewhat of a threatening tone.

Video of @deray's arrest by #BatonRouge cops is chilling. Didn't give a reason/read him his rights. He was attacked from behind. #FreeDeray

3. I've been jumping between twitter feeds

This is outrageous. Believe me I am not a violent person and I'm just sick over Dallas. But it's almost like the media and the country wants blm to stfu because "look what you people done" I am sending deray my atheist prayer. I understand the arrested are being offered pro bono legal services but I'm going to see if there is a bail fund, not just for deray but all of them.

If anything happens tonight, it was caused by the police. Everybody has been peaceful tonight but them. #BatonRouge

6. They knew who he was

 

He was singled out before they arrested anybody else.

7. Um... Thanks. It does not make

any sense to me--for the police to single him out-esp. since they knew who he was. No sense at all. It is like the police wanted to make a statement.

9. Here's a link to a video of the arrest

 

He was standing on the side of the road filming the protest when four cops jumped him from behind:

11. He was in the road for 4 minutes before the arrest

 

A cop yelled at him and started walking towards him, and he was on the side of the road for less than 1 minute before the arrest.

That is from his video. He may have been in the street for longer than 4 minutes, who knows.
