It’s okay. Impeachment over that “insurrection” is over so it’s okay to start launching new insurrections.
Police arrested nearly a dozen anti-NYPD protesters and a member of the press was assaulted during a demonstration in Manhattan Friday night, according to the NYPD.
From the very neutral language, you know these weren’t conservatives.
The demonstration was peaceful until an American flag was burned and protesters rushed at police officers, according to the NYPD.
It was mostly peaceful until the violence began.
The situation quickly dissolved into chaos as police vehicles were vandalized and a mob attacked a Daily News photographer, police said.
Lots of passive voice. Events happen for no apparent reason. The “situation” somehow becomes “chaotic”. It’s like this is a natural phenomenon with no connection to human behaviors. Imagine media coverage of the Capitol Riot describing how the “situation quickly dissolved into chaos as some protesters grappled into police while others wandered through Congress” as opposed to, “Mitt Romney was seconds from death at the hands of a mob determined to kill everyone.”
The Daily News identified the photographer as Sam Costanza, who said a group of 10 to 15 protesters attacked him. The photographer said he might have a broken nose, according to The Daily News.
That’s about as many members of the press as were injured at the Capitol Riot.
One protester, 19-year-old Angel Rivera, was charged with assaulting a police officer, officials said. Rivera allegedly bit an officer in the leg and kicked other officers during the melee.
So we’re back to attacking police after briefly praising them.
A crowd lighting fires, throwing ice and placing stickers on vehicles led to 11 arrests at a protest Friday night in Midtown Manhattan, including of a 19-year-old who bit a cop in the thigh and kicked another, according to the NYPD.
A 72-year-old press photographer, identified by the New York Daily News as the paper’s Sam Costanza, was assaulted by the crowd as he took photographs near 55th Street and Sixth Avenue. Costanza was struck in the head from behind and kicked once on the ground. There haven’t been any arrests in that case, Shelton said.
The News said Costanza believes he broke his nose.
The heroic Black Lives Matter rioters assaulted a 72-year-old man. And this isn’t their first time assaulting members of the media. And the media keeps covering for the racist thugs.
