Tense Stand Off As Chicago Residents Confront BLM Protesters

Tense Stand Off As Chicago Residents Confront BLM Protesters

Black Lives Matter potesters who showed up in front of the Englewood (7th) District police station Tuesday night were met by local residents with megaphones, who shouted at them to go home.

Hostilities between the locals and activists almost boiled over into a brawl.

RT reports: A BLM protest march from Englewood to Chicago’s 7th District police station on Tuesday ended in a showdown with community members, at times devolving into shouting matches as locals insisted the demonstrators were giving their neighborhood a bad name.

“If you ain’t from Englewood, get the f**k out of here!” longtime south side resident Darryl Smith was heard shouting at the protesters, who he said were not from the community.

“They were… gonna come to Englewood, antagonizing our police, and then when they go back home to the north side in Indiana, our police are bitter and they’re beating up our little black boys,” Smith told reporters on the scene, adding that “we don’t need any outsiders coming and antagonizing.”

A photojournalist with the Chicago Sun-Times documented some of the march’s more tense moments, including when a heated argument nearly escalated into a physical confrontation.

An organizer of the protest, which was put together by members of Black Lives Matter and advocacy group Good Kids Mad City, told a local news outlet that some demonstrators decided to leave following conflict with residents, saying they felt “unsafe.” Other organizers maintained they were from the local area, but said they said they decided not to participate in the rally due to “agitators.”

The protest came days after the police shooting of a 20-year-old suspect who reportedly opened fire on officers, which kicked off a spree of looting in downtown Chicago over the weekend. Smith said the unrest had been unfairly blamed on Englewood, and that the protesters were only feeding that perception.

“A lot of people are saying the looting downtown sparked from Englewood. We’re not having that. It didn’t spark from Englewood,” he said. “Those [looters] were opportunists, and we’re tired of Englewood getting a black eye for any and everything that happens.”

Viena mano draugė paklausė, o kodėl tu šį varškės pyragą gamini be kiaušinių, juk vist tiek veganišku jis dėl to netaps, nes yra naudojama varškė. Galiu tik pasakyti, kad jis tiesiog čia nereikalingas, net be jo gaunasi viskas puikiai. Pamėginkite ir įsitikinsite....
