Watch: White Atlanta police officer harassed by BLM mob when responding to report of shots fired

Share:

ATLANTA, GA- On July 19th, a Twitter user posted a video where a white Atlanta police officer was surrounded and harassed by a Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob as he was responding to reports of a shooting. Watch below:

The video shows the officer attempting to get information about who was possibly involved in the reported shooting, but instead he was told to “get the (expletive) outta here,” among many other things.

At one point, someone in the mob started a chant, “No white cop, no white cop.” Another person yells, “get your white face outta here.” As the officer walks to the patrol vehicle and attempts to get in the car, he is taunted the entire time by the mob.

Right before he gets into the patrol vehicle, a member of the BLM mob gets right in his face, yelling obscenities at him, saying:

“Get your (expletive) out of here…before we knock you the (expletive) out..man get the (expletive) out of here.”

After the officer gets in the car, one woman, in a Black Lives Matter shirt, steps in front of the passenger door window to seemingly defend the officer and tells the mob repeatedly to leave the man alone. She said:

“Leave this man alone. We need some help right now. They done shot somebody. Let him help.”

At the beginning of the video, two other black officers are with the white cop, as they had to rescue him from the mob. Even so, the mob did not let up as they continued to berate the officer. 

In a separate incident, the Washington Examiner reported on a Florida police officer who responded alone to a “shots fired” call and was surrounded and attacked by a mob after arriving on scene. 

Steve Zona, the president of the Fraternal Order of Police in Jacksonville, said in a statement:

“Our police officer was actually responding to a report of gunshots, shots being fired, so equate that to a potential active shooter situation. When he got down there to try and get people to disperse, one of the people from the crowd actually attacked our police officer.”

Footage that circulated social media captured the moment a crowd descended on the officer, who had a rifle slung on his back, and then pushed him to the ground while shouting expletives at him. The video shows the officer regaining his footing as the person recording runs away while laughing.

Zona said that he was disappointed that no one in the crowd stepped in to assist the officer. He said:

“We have tremendous support here in the community and I don’t think what happened to our police officer is a direct reflection of our community here in Jacksonville. I saw it’s a direct reflection of the people there.”

The officer was responding to a call reporting that multiple vehicles in the area were being burglarized. One he arrived on scene, he was informed by a complainant that she heard gunshots fired.

The officer then identified the group of about eight people fighting on a nearby street and approached them while calling for backup.

The officer attempted to separate two of the people while shouting verbal commands for them to stop, which eventually led to the incident being caught on camera.

The officer was able to perform a “takedown and arrest” of the suspected attacker, who was eventually identified as 23-year-old Jermisha Ramsey.

She was charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, and street fighting. The officer, who was not named, reportedly suffered multiple abrasions due to the attack.

Soldier who shot BLM protester in self-defense indicted by Texas grand jury on murder charge

July 4th, 2021

TRAVIS COUNTY, TX- The New York Post reports that a US Army soldier who shot and killed an armed protester last summer, after coming across a Black Lives Matter protest and was accosted by a mob has now been charged with murder, according to law enforcement authorities.

Army Sgt. Daniel Perry was indicted last week by a Travis County grand jury and charged with murder, aggravated assault and deadly conduct in connection with the July 25, 2020 death of Garrett Foster in Austin, Texas.

Perry, stationed at Fort Hood was working for a ride-sharing company and had just finished dropping off a customer. As he turned onto a street, he came across with a street full of “peaceful” protesters complaining about alleged police brutality.

Perry stopped his vehicle, honked the horn and a few seconds later drove his car into the midst of the crowed, according to The Texas Tribune.

A mob then surrounded Perry’s car, including Foster, a 28-year-old veteran of the United States Air Force. Foster was carrying an AK-47 rifle, legal to carry under Texas open carry laws.

Details about what occurred next are muddled, but at some point, Foster died of multiple gunshot wounds. Austin police say that Perry, also legally armed, allegedly shot foster with a handgun and then fled the area, as reported in The Tribune.

The Tribune also noted that it was Perry who called police to report what happened and told them he fired in self-defense. After calling police, Perry drove to safety and waited for police to arrive. He was fully cooperative with police following the shooting.

Also, to address the elephant in the room, both men are white.

Perry was taken into custody after the shooting, however, was released without charges pending an investigation. Perry’s attorneys said that he had acted in self-defense, claiming Foster pointed the AK-47 at him. Video of Foster prior to the shooting also seems to indicate he wasn’t there as a “peaceful” protester.

Perry claimed that protesters started beating on his vehicle after he turned onto the street, at which time Foster approached his vehicle and demanded he lower his window. Perry, who believed Foster to be a law enforcement official complied. He alleges that Foster raised his weapon up toward him, at which point Perry realized he wasn’t a police officer, at which point he fired in self-defense.

Here is video of the moments leading up to the shooting:

 

“It is important to note that the standard of proof required for an indictment is significantly less than the standard of proof required for a conviction,” Perry’s attorney Clint Broden said in a statement.

According to Travis County District Attorney Jose Garza, the grand jury reviewed evidence from the investigation into the incident, reviewing over 150 exhibits and interviewing 22 witnesses in the process.

“In this case, we were particularly presented with an extensive collection of evidence for the grand jury’s consideration,” Garza said.

Some witnesses said that Perry had initiated the violence prior to shooting Foster, who attended the protest with his fiancée, a triple amputee. He had resigned from the Air Force to be her full-time caregiver, the Post said.

Perry turned himself into the Travis County Jail last Thursday and was released on a $300,000 bond.

Broden complained that the Travis County District Attorney’s office refused to allow them to present written evidence to the grand jury.

‘This refusal is unusual in Texas and begs the question of why the District Attorney’s Office would not allow this,” Broden said.

“We understand the political motivations of the district attorney, however when this case is presented to a jury at trial and the jury gets to hear all the evidence instead of a one-sided presentation, we have every confidence that Sgt. Perry will be acquitted.”

The district attorney’s office did not respond to a request by the Tribune for comment on Broden’s allegations.

However, it should be noted that Garza is one of a number of district attorneys across the country who was elected through the deep pockets of anti-American socialist billionaire George Soros. That would seem to indicate he’s soft on real criminals while going after someone who appeared to be protecting his own life. Here’s an example:

The incident sparked outrage among people who had been protesting against what they call “systemic racism”, and it also fueled a debate over Texas’ open carry law, as well as the state’s “stand your ground” law, which grants people the right to use deadly force if they feel they are in danger.

PORTLAND, OR – The evening of January 23rd in Portland, Oregon saw yet another demonstration aimed at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility located within the city.

This protest that was eventually declared as an unlawful assembly, was said to have prompted the response from Federal Protective Service officers.

In Portland, the ICE facility situated within the city has been the target of protesters for some time within the past year, with optics that transpired on the evening of January 23rd that hosted similar chants and antics akin to what the facility has been subjected to previously.

Video captured from the demonstration showed protesters shouting the likes of, “No borders! No nations! Abolish deportations!”

At approximately 10:00 p.m. in Portland that evening, law enforcement officers from the Federal Protective Service – which the FPS is an entity that falls under the Department of Homeland security – had declared the protest to be an unlawful assembly.

Demonstrators and protesters at the time were advised over loudspeaker that any instances of trespassing on federal property while hosting a weapon would result in suspects being arrested.

Later on in the evening, federal agents could be seen responding to the riotous crowd by using various crowd control methods such as teargas.

It’s unclear, as of this time, how many arrests were enacted during the unlawful assembly on the evening of January 23rd. At least one video has surfaced showing one suspect being detained by law enforcement that evening. 

As mentioned earlier, anti-ICE protests had been transpiring for some time within Portland, with anti-ICE sentiments being expressed on protests and unlawful assemblies that occurred as recently as Inauguration Day of 2021.

We at Law Enforcement Today recently reported on some of the Inauguration Day protests/riots that transpired in Portland – as well as Seattle. 

Here’s that previous report. 

_

According to reports, groups of far-left rioters engaged in various acts of vandalism and other alleged criminal offenses in both Seattle, Washington and in Portland, Oregon following the inauguration of President Joe Biden.

Among these groups of rioters were individuals adorning what’s typically referred to as Antifa black bloc.

With regard to the events that transpired in Seattle, Washington, there are reports of at least three people who were arrested during the unrest.

According to Seattle police, one individual had been arrested for property damage, another arrested for assault, and another individual arrested for an alleged burglary and property damage with respect to a Starbucks storefront within the city.

Images of the property damage that occurred in Seattle were shared by the Seattle Police Department on Twitter.

Among the images displayed are what appeared to be an Amazon Go storefront having been defaced with spray paint and also shattered windows among the William Kenzo Nakamura courthouse.

The protests which hosted the criminal acts started at around 4:30 p.m. on January 20th in Seattle, which started out initially as a hodgepodge of individuals having congregated at a park before they started to march throughout the streets of downtown Seattle.

Individuals among the group that were marching had been seen carrying signs that hosted such popular far-left slogans like “Abolish ICE”, while other signage present during the protest bore messages generally denigrating both law enforcement and the newly elected President Biden.  

Local reporting of the riotous demonstration that transpired in Seattle alleged that some within the group of protesters were hurling objects at vehicles and engaging in targeted harassment of people who were not among them protesting.

Videos also surfaced online showcasing an American flag that was draped out in the middle of an intersection that was lit afire by the protesters. However, the fire was reportedly extinguished quickly thereafter.

As mentioned earlier, protests and riotous acts of this brand were not only present in Seattle on January 20th – but also in Portland.

According to Portland Police Sergeant Kevin Allen, a group of roughly 150 people had amassed at Revolution Hall at approximately 2:00 p.m. on January 20th in Portland and then made their way over to the Democratic Party of Oregon headquarters.

This Portland-based protest was coined as the J20 protest – which was essentially billed as a demonstration against President Biden’s inauguration and also expressing disdain toward law enforcement in general.

Apparently, this group of people we’re also trying to support the rights of indigenous people.

Much in line with the typical acts often associated with Antifa inspired protests and riots, the Portland demonstration saw the likes of smashed windows, buildings being vandalized by way of graffiti, and also hostile interactions with police officers who were attempting to maintain order.

Despite a new administration coming into the White House that are compliments of the Democratic Party, it appears those among the far-left are still not satisfied – and are up to the same sort of antics akin to the summer riots of 2020.
