The entire movement does not, even the ones that have have been small groups and they don't always, you choose to blanket. Regardless, there's no justification for shooting protesters... even when black people are the victims you all find a way to blame them. Sick.

I haven't seen anything to justify your claims. It almost seems like you are trying to control the narrative.

Here we have 5 people shot and posters that show no sympathy, instead talk about how they hate BLM. For those of you with such attitudes, you are no better than the shooters.

ATS is littered with some disgusting people.


All violence is bad and sick, but why a big deal over this when

None of the five people who were shot had life-threatening injuries.
I posted recently that this last weekend it was typical in Chicago with 8 deaths and 45 wounded in shootings. I would hate to add all cities in the country to this. I truly think most establish their future for both the good or bad people in our country. I will treat this the same as all other violence cases in our country and say boy that really sucked. Is there something more I should do, I'm sure you must have done a lot for the 45 wondered in Chicago.

Violence is bad enough but reading these posts make you realize how sick people are, especially when hiding behind their computers spewing their hate.

Nice try to somehow turn the tables on me. Yeah, didn't you know? I'm superman and I did all that I could to save the 45 wondered...

My point is it all sucks but much of it is created by those who are the victims. I'm not sure how to take this when any given day this is nothing, so people say "so what" and are somewhat justified with having that attitude. I recommend not living in any of these crappy places that this stuff happens in on a weekly bases, and don't raise your kids where it is 50/50 they get shot by someone or the cops, it is that simple. Also when my kids go to college they better only do college stuff, I'm serious, their mother would put a serious whoop ass on them and daddy's founds would run dry.

Where is the "chased off" narrative coming from?


The video in the following post from earlier in this thread is where I believe that narrative originated.

Talk about vague story lines -
From the AP:


Wronski-Riley, who is also on the security team, said most of the crowd stopped following the men about midway up the street, but a few protesters gave chase. Wronski-Riley and a friend followed to make sure everyone came back safe. After running about another half block, the suspects started shooting.

bigstory.ap.org...

They asked them to leave and then they chased them?
I wonder if this really so clear cut case of outsiders attacking protesters or were the protesters trying to beat up the guys that shot them? Why else would they be chasing them if not to attack them?

Something stinks about this - no cell phone video with all those people and "obvious" White troublemakers being escorted away? By the way, how can anyone be forced to leave a protest on a public street by anyone other than police?

Hmmmmmmm......
Not swallowing the whole pill here

I think you miss my point. Violence is one thing but reading these posts that show zero sympathy, in fact blaming the victims or downright showing hate for them is another. And that makes these posts and those who star them just as disgusting as the people who commit these acts.

I hope ATS now sees what I was talking about. This thread is a perfect example of what I was saying in the OP.

They are attacking the victims in order to justify the shooting. Exactly as expected.

Yup the victim shaming started with the first post.


I guess the good thing is that this thread helps to expose some people.

My understanding is the men were watching and antagonizing the protesters. They wore masks and bulletproof vests. They were filming the BLM protesters. When confronted and told to remove their masks they said "f*** no". BLM protesters then attempted to chase them off and when the masked men were no longer in line of sight of any cameras they turned around and opened fire.

Funny how these men were able to do this while the protest was in front of a police station. They're still at large. Amazing.

Yeah, you really need to find a longer cut of the stream they were putting up.

There was a video that was taken down and I am still looking for it that should a conversation earlier in the evening where the accused shooters seemed to support the movement in a begrudging sense. The discourse was rather civil.

It seems as though, if the shooting went down as detailed with folks giving chase, that the shooters were anticipating an altercation and acted on adrenaline.

They can be racists and still not actually intended for something like this to go down. Lots of people in poor neighbourhoods carry weapons on them, not just racists, just in case.

This is NOT good for public perception all around, especially with the Trump fiasco.

...names don't hurt but apparently it is OK to bring up name calling as a valid excuse to kill people..

Nonsense!
Of course name-calling hurts! It can even be lethal!
Just land here?
It's just as good a reason to kill people (self-defense) as any!

Kind of funny that the people who are talking about the name calling as justification for the shooting are in threads or creating them about how bad PC speech is and that people should toughen up..


Hypocrites and their best.

So let me get this straight. You're telling me armed racists actually went to support the protest and only were armed to protect themselves?

That's rich.

This whole "Black Lives Matter" makes me so mad. It should be "All Lives Matter" There are just as many White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, Green, Blue and so on lives that are taken by evil. "All Lives Matter"


Agreed! You know who else pisses me off? The American Cancer Society! Always spouting off about victims of Cancer..what about Heart Disease? Car crashes? Drunk Drivers! DO those deaths not matter???? The American Cancer Society should be disbanded!

Not if they were cops or hired by cops it isn't.

I never said they went to support the protest, its unfortunate you interpret my statement that way. I said when they were on film at the actual protest they openly said these folks need some help. They clearly were not fans whatsoever.

I linked you to a video of them being called out for bad mouthing people who kept coming over accusing them of being agent provacatuers. They are also talking about waifus.

I take it you haven't encountered to many real racists of any stripe? Just the internet ones? Work retail and you will meet casual racists of all stripes and colors and genders.
