Rioting Over a Criminal … and Why Not? By Chris Knight
Talk about the revolt of the underman! Revolting over a criminal makes as much sense as anything, since the rioting is even more over-the-top than the initial offending act, so if you are going to riot and break what remains of the law, doing it over a criminal makes symbolic sense.
“The complaint used by cops to handcuff Jacob Blake to his hospital bed since they shot and paralyzed him last weekend has been obtained by DailyMail.com, and shows he was wanted for a Class G felony and two misdemeanors. The 29-year-old was accused of a Class G felony sexual assault - which could carry a maximum 10-year prison term - and two counts of domestic abuse involving trespass and disorderly conduct. The warrant was dropped Friday afternoon amid outcry at the continued handcuffing of Blake for days after he was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer. The move was shortly after Wisconsin governor Tony Evers was asked if Blake being restrained would concern him and said: 'Hell yes. 'He's paid a horrific price already being shot seven or eight times in the back. I can't imagine why that's happening.' Patrick Cafferty, an attorney representing the Blake family, told WISN on Friday that the felony arrest warrants, which stem from alleged crimes that Blake committed before the shooting, have been vacated and that deputies were no longer in his hospital room.”
All of that apparently “justifies” the peace-loving antifa breaking a 71-year-old man’s jaw:
“Demonstrators in Kenosha brutally attacked a 71-year-old man who was defending buildings from vandals and looters during Monday night’s protests, throwing a plastic bottle filled with concrete, causing him to fall to the ground and break his jaw in two places. Robert Cobb, 71, took to the streets to defend businesses after seeing footage of lawless protesters shamelessly setting buildings on fire. According to the Kenosha News, “Cobb is a member of the Danish Brotherhood Lodge and close friend of Pamela ‘Sue’ Moniz, owner of The Mattress Shop” — two places protesters set ablaze. Cobb attempted to ward off looters and vandals by spraying them with a fire extinguisher. According to Moniz, owner of the mattress shop that protesters destroyed, someone pulled a gun on Cobb as he tried to defend the buildings. “He sprayed them in the face so they had to take their masks off for identification,” she said. “Someone pulled a gun and another person yelled, ‘Don’t shoot this man, don’t shoot this man.’” At another point, the elderly man was attacked with a plastic bottle filled with concrete, causing him to fall to the ground in a pool of blood. “I absolutely cry every time I talk about it because this man did this for me,” Moniz said, according to Kenosha News. “He did it because that is the kind of person he is. He is so giving; so selfless”: “He was just defending his business, that’s all he was doing and they walked up and f**ked him up. F**ked him up,” the woman who taped the incident said as someone attended to Cobb’s injuries. “I have it all on video. All of it. He didn’t deserve any of it. Any of it. This is just wrong guys,” she added. Another woman could be heard in the background, contending that protesters are “just trying to protect” themselves. “You don’t understand what terrifies these black men out here,” she said. “They’re not making it home to their families. Understand, respect. How about that?” According to Kenosha News, Cobb was released from the hospital, but will have to undergo surgery to “put two removable plates in place and wire his jaw shut.”
Talk about an eye for an eye:
Perhaps if antifa keep pushing, attacked people might push back, especially these older people who really don’t have much to lose.
