Nothing shows your support for blacks suffering deep systematic oppression by the police like stealing washing machines.
A reporter could not hide his disbelief as he saw a man in a red T-shirt casually walking out of a store with a large black washing machine. Oh, it was black. He was saving it from the police
“You can see this guy, he brought a dolly,” the reporter said as the thief casually looked his way.
Others got violent when journalists tried to catch them in the act, however — with Elijah Schaffer, a reporter for conservative site The Blaze, struggling to talk with a bloody mouth he said he got from being “jumped by BLM rioters while they were looting more than a dozen stores.”
He shared the footage he was filming at the time, telling someone who confronted him that he was “not filming faces.”
The protesters “immediately started punching and kicking” him as he started filming the looting, he said, saying he was going to a hospital to get stitches for the “absolutely painful” injury.
Others said the looters overwhelmed the police there. “There’s simply not enough officers, and people keep arriving in cars to loot,” Shelby Talcott of the right-wing Daily Caller tweeted.
The destruction sparked immediate condemnation from many online.
“Why are these criminals destroying our neighborhood? Can’t they just protest without destroying hard working citizens’s properties?” one local replied to some of the depressing clips. “It’s just sad and hurtful.”
