Hey do you think BLM and antifa are going to "peaceful protest" this shooting?
I guess the guy thought he was going to treat the US Martial Service like some restricted local law enforcement.
So far the heroes of black lives matter and antifa include a man who threatened a pregnant woman’s baby with a gun, a rapist, a convicted child molester and a wife beater.

He was carrying a can of bear mace and a bullet actually hits the canister according to his friend who was there..

So let me get this straight:
He shoots a guy in the streets. Most of the video shows that the shooting looks more like an execution then self-defense. He sticks around long enough to contact sympathetic press and give them an interview in which they completely go along and paint this as total self-defense on his part, and then he suicides by cop so it all never goes to any sort of trial and process of discovery.
It looks like he decided to try to make himself a martyr for the cause.
“I felt that my life, and other peoples lives around me were in danger.”
“I felt like I had no choice but to do what I did.”
“Security may be needed.”
“I had no idea what I was going into.”
“Every time I see a big truck, especially with a flag on it, I immediately think they are out to get me.”
“I saw more of their vehicles than real citizen vehicles. It felt like the beginning of a war.”
“It was a free-for-all and the police were letting it happen.”
“I realized what had happened. I was confident I did not hit anyone innocent. And I made my exit.”
“Totally justified. Had I not acted I am confident that my friend and I would have been killed because I wasn’t going to stand there and let something happen…..”
“I’m, 100% anti-fascist. I’m not a member of “Antifa.” I’m not a member of anything.”
“Honestly, I hate to say it, but I see a civil war right around the corner.”
“That shot felt like the beginning of a war.”

Is this the man who murdered a Trump supporter this past weekend?
From what I've read of the shooting, the shooter, Michael Forest Reinoehl, 48, could have claimed self defense. Apparently, the guy he shot reached into a side pocket for a can of mace, that Reinoehl took for a gun.
Lots of info here: www.nytimes.com...
He doesn't seem like the kinda guy to go along easily with arresting sheriffs, though. My cursory opinion? Suicide by cop.

Wish he would've lived long enough for the feds to beat some information out of him though.
Avowed antifa terrorist vs. Patriotic federal agents = Steam roll.
