  • Officer’s spine shattered after protester drops concrete block on his head

    As protesters of Black Lives Matter continue demonstrations, once peaceful rallies have taken a violent turn.

    Over the weekend, thousands of demonstrators shut down I-94 in St. Paul, Minnesota after the police shooting of Philando Castile. The mob-mentality has turned protestors brutal, and another victim was claimed.

    According to KARE 11, a St. Paul officer had his spine broken after a protester reportedly dropped a slab of concrete onto him during a Black Lives Matter protest. The officer’s identity was not released.

    The department tweeted, “We were just informed that the officer who had a concrete block dropped on his head during I-94 riot has broken vertebrae.”

    St. Paul Police reported that 21 officers were injured throughout the city during the protest. 50 people were arrested for rioting on I-94, and another 52 were arrested on charges of “public nuisance and unlawful assembly during an incident.”

    St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell commented on the situation during a press conference.

    “Last night, really was the first time in my 28 years as a police officer, that I had observed the level of violence that was directed towards public servants. It’s really a disgrace. Protesters last night turned into criminals. I’m absolutely disgusted by the actions of some. We will not tolerate it.”
    Atell said that when protesters allegedly began to throw bricks, glass bottles and rocks at police, “the tone changed,” and a protest turned into a riot.

    Some even threw fireworks at officers.

    He explained that some protesters brought their children and basically used them as human shields against the police.

    Atell stated,

    “It’s really disgusting if you ask me. I can’t for the life understand why you would put a child into that position in the first place.”
    The mother of victim Philando Castile spoke out against the violence.

    “When demonstrations become violent, it disrespects my son and his memory. Philando was a man of peace and dignity. Please, I ask you to at all times remain peaceful in your expressions of concern regarding his death at the hands of the police. I promise that we will not rest until justice prevails.”
    Arrests started around 3:00 a.m., and authorities took down protesters one by one.

      Black Lives Matter protesters should be considered and treated as immediate deadly terrorist threats.

      They behave like terrorists. They should be treated as such.

      The democrats have spent years removing God and the Bible from schools and public places and now they celebrate black lawless bloody protestors who are the savage fruits of a failed ungodly racist education system. The wicked shall be turned into hell along with all nations that forget God.
