Agreed. The mob was out for blood at that point. And 3-5 people attacking a man running away can hardly be self defense. Don’t get too excited though, he will likely never see the inside of a jail as even repeat offenders are released all the time here in ABQ.
They were assaulting and eventually pulled knives out, Shooter was in the right.

More Info:

The Stupid Antifa boy is in critical, bit stable condition.

The shooter only shot, because one of them pulled TWO(2) Knives out, clearly seen in a follow up clip, all raw, at that point, his life was in jeopardy and thus responded with force.

NOT when being pursued by FOUR(4) Violent thugs.
NOT when the skateboard was being swung.

If he was a bloodthirsty criminal, he would have 86'd all of them.

Anyways, Social Media has shown absolute support for the defender who stood his ground.

Antifa, don't come down here, whole differenr jungle 😐

Hmmm. i looked at the video , especially of the young woman that was thrown down... it clearly shows she was backing into him , preventing him from moving and she engaged in actual physical contact. i'm sorry but if you kept doing that to me... i would throw you down too. The question here is , who engaged first against who's right to be there and move about freely? you cannot harass or assault someone because they are not there to support your political view. this is what the left does, as they demand the right to freely protest. If you cannot understand that.....this is why America is doomed and this happens. Take off your political glasses. No citizen should be doing this to another citizen...even if your feelings get hurt. BOTH SIDES. I would never touch anyone like that to provoke an attack. its not smart and it inflammatory. expect nothing less

ABQ resident here. Saw these videos of the shooter, identified as Stephen Baca throwing down at least two protestors before he was swarmed by the mob. Adds some context.

First video
Twitter - Stephen Baca throwing a woman down

Second video
Twitter - Stephen Baca shoving a protestor moments before shooting.

Blaming the NM Civil Guard before the details even emerged made this all smell really bad. Also never heard of them till now but that literally means nada as I only moved here a year and a half ago.

NM Civil Guard said that Baca isn’t a part of their group:

New Mexico Civil Guard distances themselves from alleged shooter


"The crowd got violent. It's the most hateful people I've seen," said a member of the New Mexico Civil Guard, who did not want to be identified. "They like to call it a peaceful protest but there was nothing peaceful about it."

As people put chains around the Oñate, the New Mexico Civil Guard stepped in.

"And so we interposed ourselves because the mob at that point – it was no longer a peaceful protest – it was a mob," he said.


And here’s our boob of a Mayor ready to brand them as a hate group:

Mayor Keller calls for civil guard militia to be labeled a hate group

👇🏼 This gets the line of the day award as fascists try and topple monuments:

“We don't allow any kind of communism, socialism, national socialism, any supremacy of any kind,” he added. “You will be gone and with a quickness if that's your professed beliefs.”


Also I should clarify I’m not defending the mob At all... actually pretty disgusted with humanity these days. Before this, protests here were pretty peaceful save the first Sunday when they looted downtown and I started packing our belongings up.

I'd like to know where he came from.

They're trying to make it look like the locals were the 'bad guys'.

Be that as it may, I certainly never got that impression.

Antifa have Cells all over the place, could be from the outside or started to get ballsy there.

Facts: There is no such thing as "Peaceful Protestors" whose aim is to unlawfully rip down a statue.

So the violent rioter's name who attacked the bystander is Scott Williams.

I can't wait until internet sleuths uncover his social media and connections.

Should be interesting.

Won't matter anyways, there are clips that show how it went down and yes, the defender was pretty cool headed and smart, didn't even empty his clip, 4 shots, just enough, he stopped shooting when the dude started to fall, in otherwords, a pretty educated bearer of arms.

Exactly. If the shooter was a black man, chased and attacked by protestors, this story would've been on the national news, with everyone taking the side of the shooter.

Thanks to the media, all white men who legally own firearms are now considered racist white supremacists, or provocateurs.

It's about damn time someone has the balls to protect themselves.

What's the deal with the skateboards? Those were always the choice for the nerds after you reached puberty.

It's their only means of transportation, since most don't work and live in their parent's bsmt.

How little you know.


You have no idea what I know.


When the long guns start firing ... they'll be hard to stop.


Exactly. And those pulling the trigger don't give damn about the innocent and defenseless lives and limbs lost in the process.

The Bugaloo Boys are no better than Antifa.



Innocent people are always caught up in conflict. If the Left starts a war, that blood will be on their hands.

As has been explained multiple times, even though the shooter was causing trouble, once he tried to disengage and run away, the mob no longer had any right to pursue him. What happens next is a completely separate incident. They attack him, with deadly force (knife) and clear intent. He legally defends himself.

If you're going to go to one of these events and you're the type that will engage in this type of behavior, you might want to learn what you're legally allowed to do. Otherwise you might wind up getting legally shot like this idiot did.

Yup. And too many don't care. Or their depraved hearts want exactly that.

There's plenty of troublemakers on ALL sides. No one gets a free pass. Everyone is responsible for their own crimes. Including the Bugaloo Boys. No excuses.

This equivocation is pathetic. Right wingers aren't rioting and destroying hundreds of businesses, and getting defended for doing so by right wing politicians and media.

There are trouble-makers on both sides, of course. The problem is the Left embraces and defends their extremists. Extremism is becoming normalized on the Left. That's a recipe for disaster and it's not gonna be pretty if it comes to a head.

I don't think you know what that word even means:

the use of ambiguous language to conceal the truth or to avoid committing oneself; prevarication.

I was VERY clear. No double standards. No piss poor excuses for bad behavior. EVERYONE is responsible for their own bad behavior. Including the Bugaloo Boys. And any other pathetic group of people who are part of the problem.

Apparently some are... and hoping that BLM gets blamed for it. Particularly the Bugaloo Boys.


There are trouble-makers on both sides, of course.


As I said... including the Bugaloo Boys... and all are responsible and accountable for their own crimes and bad behavior.


The problem is the Left embraces and defends their extremists. That's a recipe for disaster and it's not gonna be pretty if it comes to a head.


There are plenty on the right embracing and defending extremists, tho I suspect more do so privately while playing dumb publicly.

Deny ignorance. It's only bliss until it smacks you upside the head.
