‘Black Lives Matter’ Riots in London, Police and Public Attacked

‘Black Lives Matter’ Riots in London, Police and Public Attacked, by Liam Deacon.

Molotov cocktails, fireworks, and bottles have been hurled at police during a ‘Black Lives Matter’ riot in East London following the death of an alleged drug dealer.

Rashan Jermaine Charles, 20, died in hospital after being apprehended by police in Dalston, Hackney on the 22nd of July. He was attempting to flee a shop while swallowing a stash of drugs when tackled by officers, according to reports.

Following the death, masked activists bearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ placards shut down Kingsland Road, set fire to bins and mattresses, and even attempted to storm a passing lorry, the BBC reports.

Shop windows were also smashed, graffiti painted on buildings, and late-night businesses forced to close their doors. …

The protest began at around 4 pm on Friday, when approximately 80 people began gathering outside the shop where Mr Charles was arrested. Things turned violent as the sun went down and continued into the night.

The transition from a political protest to criminality seems to be happening in record time for Black Lives Matter. (Most violent political movements end up becoming involved in criminal enterprises to raise money to keep the organization going over the years, but normally it takes years or decades.) Despite Soros money. Guess the founding lie of “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” after robbing someone’s shop has something to do with it.
