For the second night in a row, “Black Lives Matter” protesters created disturbances and trouble in and near Berkeley, Missouri after an 18-year-old black thug who drew a gun on a white cop was shot dead.
It doesn’t matter what color your skin is, if you unlawfully pull a gun on a cop, you deserve to die.
And this punk, Antonio Martin, deserved to die. He was not in the middle of turning his life around. He was never going to discover the cure for cancer or invent anything that would make the world a better place. No, he was a predatory blight on society for all of his days.
The Gateway Pundit reports at in the past year, he had racked up arrests for “three assaults, armed robbery, armed criminal action and multiple uses of weapons”.
He was practicing the “thug” lifestyle and doing a pretty good job of it.
But you would never know it from the Leftists protesting his violent demise.
(WBTW) – Demonstrators took to the streets for a second night after a white police officer in Berkeley, Missouri, killed a black 18-year-old who police said pointed a gun at him.
Dozens of protesters held a vigil late Wednesday at the gas station in the St. Louis suburb where Antonio Martin was shot, and they briefly blocked traffic on Interstate 170 during a march before returning to the station. Berkeley Police Chief Frank McCall told KMOV-TV that six to eight people were arrested.
Later, about 75 people staged a peaceful protest early Christmas morning outside of a nearby church, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Police in riot gear were present.
The actions were calmer than a night before, when a crowd of about 300 people gathered at the gas station, throwing rocks and bricks in a scene reminiscent of the sometimes-violent protests that followed the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson.
Unlike in the death of Brown, who was unarmed and whose shooting was not captured on video, Berkeley Mayor Theodore Hoskins said Wednesday that surveillance footage appeared to show Martin pulling a gun on the unidentified 34-year-old officer who questioned him and another man about a theft at a convenience store.
