*Wrap your head around this scenario: A white-on-white beatdown went down over Black Lives Matter. Actually it was a group of pro-police agitators who beat up a group of Black Lives Matter counter-protesters.

What’s also interesting is that in the video you actually hear someone from the pro-police group say don’t use weapons but punching in the face is OK.

The incident went down on Saturday in Fort Collins, Colorado where the “Back the Blue” group was holding a rally when some “Black Lives Matter” protesters showed up.

At that point, the “Back the Blue” crowd went after the BLM protesters, and you hear someone shout, “Everybody keep their hands off their weapons. Keep punching each other in the face. Don’t shoot anybody.”

Someone from the BLM group said, even though they were not the aggressors, they were detained by cops but were never told why.

Here’s more via TMZ:

Fort Collins Police Services has shed a bit more light on who they arrested and why — saying they took action against members of both parties … while apparently chastising the pro-cop group’s methods.

The agency says it arrested four different people in connection to Saturday’s brouhaha — booking them on charges from criminal tampering and resisting arrest to disorderly conduct and possession of an illegal weapon. They didn’t specify which suspects were affiliated with which groups — but did note they made arrests on both sides of the fight and are looking for other troublemakers that got away.

The FCPS also says … “We respect everyone’s right to peacefully assemble. Our officers have consistently supported these rights in recent months as people have gathered to make their voices heard. For the safety of our community, acts of violence and other unlawful behavior have not and will not be tolerated from anyone.”

Then comes the telling line … “Truly supporting a cause means representing its values. Committing crimes in our community is not a way to support police. We stand for safety, period. We want all of our community members to feel safe here in Fort Collins and we reject any form of hate.” That seems to be a shot at the pro-police group, many of whom were seen on video throwing down, arguably more so than the BLM crowd was.

Unarmed: An Afternoon of Images and Reflection created in memory of black victims of police violence in Louisville, KY’s African American Museum

*The African-American Museum in Louisville, Ky unveiled a new art exhibit called Unarmed: An Afternoon of Images and Reflection, which was created in memory of black victims of police violence.

New York artist, Raafi Rivero, created a series of sports jerseys, each designed in the colors of a victim’s local sports team. The number is the victim’s age and stars on the jerseys represent how many times that person was shot.

Rivero said he began the project in 2013 after the death of Trayvon Martin, and as there were more and more victims, he added jerseys, including Breonna Taylor’s.

View the jerseys on display in this WHAS 11 news report on the exhibit below.

Indicted St. Louis Lawyers Leave Autographed Photo for Pancake House Waitress

Published

Mark and Patricia McCloskey

*The couple who went viral for waving their guns at Black Lives Matter protesters outside their home were recemtly indicted by a grand jury in St. Louis. Now they are back in the headlines for allegedly leaving a signed postcard for a pancake house employee on Tuesday. 

The photo says “Patty & Mark McCloskey v. the Mob,” and shows them with their arms crossed in front of their home under an American flag, along with the caption: “Still standing.”

According to KMOV, the McCloskeys left the autographed image and a tip for a server at Original Pancake House in Ladue. Another diner witnessed it go down and was quick to speak to local reporters about it, Law and Crime reports. 

“We were having breakfast and I noticed all this commotion around the table when they had left. The server was like ‘Oh my God, look what they left me,” said Andrea Spencer, according to the local CBS affiliate. “I saw it and thought ‘Oh my God.’ It was just flabbergasting think that you’re capitalizing on these 15 minutes of shame that you have, and to publicize it on a postcard. I thought it was strange.”

KMOV later noted that “A photographer whose images were used in the postcard told News 4 Wednesday the couple did not obtain permission to use the photo and may be in violation of copyright laws.”

Spencer said she got the sense the McCloskeys “didn’t want to be forgotten or they didn’t get recognized as much as they wanted to when they were there.”

The couple’s attorney said they carry postcards because they receive a lot of requests for autographs.

Earlier this month, Mark and Patricia McCloskey were each charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon in the July incident outside their mansion with Black Lives Matter protesters. 

“Once all the facts are out, it will be clear the McCloskeys committed no crime whatsoever,” Joel Schwartz, their attorney, told KMOV-TV. “Frankly because the grand jury is not an adversarial process and defense counsel are not allowed in there and I have no idea what was stated to the grand jury and what law was given to the grand jury.”

Mark McCloskey told reporters that not one of protesters who damaged his property was charged in the incident. 

“Every single human being that was in front of my house was a criminal trespasser,” McCloskey said, according to KMOV-TV. “They broke down our gate. They trespassed on our property. Not a single one of those people is now charged with anything. We’re charged with felonies that could cost us four years of our lives and our law licenses.”

We previously reported… the protesters were on their way to the home of Mayor Lyda Krewson (D), calling on her to resign after she revealed the personal information of activists on a livestream.

“It was like the storming of the Bastille, the gate came down and a large crowd of angry, aggressive people poured through. I was terrified that we’d be murdered within seconds. Our house would be burned down, our pets would be killed,” Mark McCloskey told reporters in July.

“What you are witnessing here is just an opportunity for the government, the leftist, democrat government of the City of St. Louis to persecute us for doing no more than exercising our Second Amendment rights,” he continued.
