BLM Slammed for Protesting Cops for Shooting Armed Man who Opened Fire on Neighbor

Minneapolis, Minnesota: Andrew “Tekle” Sundberg, a 20-year-old black male, fired bullets into the home of a single mother and her two children both under 5 years of age. Minneapolis police snipers fatally shot Sundberg from a roof of an apartment building across the street following a six-hour standoff. Black Lives Matter protesters converged at Sunberg’s home, but faced backlash from Arabella Yarbrough, the neighbor whom Sunberg had reportedly been trying to shoot when police were called. A video featuring Arabella Yarbrough has gone viral; she can be seen imploring the protesters, who included Sunberg’s adoptive parents, to go home. The Sundbergs have retained and attorney. She said, “This is not a George Floyd situation. George Floyd was unarmed. My kids have to deal with this and probably have a mental illness now because they almost lost their lives.” She continued, “There’s bullet holes in the kitchen because he sat in the f*cking hallway watching my move. This is not okay. Go home!”

Denver BLM Protesters Awarded $14 Million By Jury for Injuries During Violent Riots

A federal jury has awarded $14 million in compensatory and punitive damages to 12 Black Lives Matter protesters who were injured by police during a riot over the death of George Floyd in 2020. The jury decided that the protesters constitutional rights were violated by the Denver Police over their use of less-lethal weapons to try and break up the riot.

In Austin, Texas, officials have agreed to pay over $13 million to people injured in protests in May 2020, and 19 officers have been indicted for their actions against protesters. Last month, two police officers in Dallas accused of injuring protesters after firing less lethal munitions were charged.

A federal jury has awarded $14 million in compensatory and punitive damages to 12 Black Lives Matter protesters who were injured by police during a riot over the death of George Floyd in 2020.

The jury decided that the protesters constitutional rights were violated by the Denver Police over their use of less-lethal weapons to try and break up the riot.

“The violence and destruction that occurred around the community required intervention,” one of Denver’s lawyers, Lindsay Jordan, told the jurors.

The activists sued the City and County of Denver and former police officer Jonathan Christian.

Christian was accused of shooting current state legislative candidate Elisabeth Epps with a pepper ball.

“The jurors found Christian violated Epps’ Fourth Amendment rights and awarded her $250,000 in punitive damages. They denied her First Amendment claims against him,” the Denver Gazette reports. “At trial the two sides disputed whether the pepper ball fired by Christian actually hit Epps. She said after the verdict came down it had felt ‘disorienting’ for the city to challenge her account of what she experienced.”

Attorneys for the protesters claimed their clients never assaulted officers or destroyed property.

The payouts are as follows:

  • Claire Sannier: $1 million
  • Stanford Smith: $1 million
  • Zachary Packard: $3 million
  • Sara Fitouri: $1 million
  • Maya Rothlein: $1 million
  • Amanda Blasingame: $1 million
  • Joe Deras: $1 million
  • Elle Taylor: $1 million
  • Ashlee Wedgeworth, $750,00
  • Jackie Parkins: $1 million
  • Elisabeth Epps: 1 million in compensatory damages, $250,000 in punitive damages
  • Hollis Lyman: $1 million

Kentucky: Black Lives Matter Activist Arrested in Shooting of Louisville Mayoral Candidate

Quintez Brown, a 21-year old gun control activist and Black Lives Matter radical, was arrested on Monday in the targeted shooting of Democrat Craig Greenberg, who is running for Mayor of Louisville. The candidate was left unharmed but shaken. It is ironic that Quintez Brown has advocated for removing guns. He was interviewed in 2018 by MSNBC host Joy Reid to promote the students who participated in the anti-gun “March For Our Lives” protests in Washington, DC. Brown was reportedly selected to meet former President Obama when he was a freshman in college.

UPDATE:   Black Lives Matter Louisville reportedly posted $100,000 bail for Quintez Brown, a BLM and anti-gun activist, with money from the from the Louisville Community Bail Fund, a donor-driven effort.

A gun control activist and Black Lives Matter radical was arrested on Monday in the targeted shooting of Louisville, Kentucky mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg.

Quintez Brown was charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment, after firing his gun inside Greenberg’s campaign office.

Greenberg, who is a Democrat, and Jewish, said he and four campaign staffers were in a morning meeting in Butchertown when Brown walked in and opened fire.
“When we greeted him, he pulled out a gun, aimed directly at me and began shooting,”  Greenberg said at a news conference.

The candidate was left unharmed but shaken, according to the New York Times, “and with a bullet hole in the back of his sweater.”

The suspect allegedly used a 9mm Glock handgun in the shooting, Fox News reported.

He then fled the building. About 10 minutes later, officers located a man matching the suspect description less than a half-mile away. He was found carrying a loaded 9mm magazine in his pants pocket and was taken into custody, the arrest report says.

The incident was reportedly captured on surveillance video.

Following the shooting, Greenberg tweeted “my team and I are fortunately all safe…I will provide an update as soon as possible.”

The 21-year old suspect appeared to be a rising star in left-wing media circles.

In 2018, the alleged gunman sat down with MSNBC host Joy Reid in the nation’s capital for a segment promoting the students who participated in the anti-gun “March For Our Lives” protests in Washington, D.C.  Brown was then the 17-year-old president of the Black Student Union at duPont Manual High School in Louisville.

Addressing Kentucky Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell, who was the Senate majority leader at the time, Brown said students want Congress to act on guns, “and if you’re not going to give us that, then we’re going to get everyone out here to vote, and we’re going to vote you out of office.”

“Get rid of assault rifles,” Brown said.

Brown was reportedly selected to meet former President Obama when he was a freshman in college.

As a freshman political science major at University of Louisville, Brown was one of 22 students in the country invited to the inaugural national gathering of the Obama Foundation’s My Brother’s Keeper Alliance that supports boys and young men of color. He traveled to Oakland, California, and was quoted as saying he had the opportunity to shake hands with Obama himself during a two-day workshop.

National Guard Deployed ahead of Rittenhouse Verdict. Judge Received Threats.

Hundreds of Wisconsin National Guard troops have been activated ahead of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial verdict to prevent rioting. Last year, when Kenosha was burning due to the BLM and leftist riots, Democrat Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers refused to call out the National Guard to stop it. Police in Chicago, about 65 miles south of Kenosha, are also preparing for riots. Rittenhouse shot three men, killing two of them, and wounding the third in this self-defense case. Judge Bruce Schroeder, who has received death threats and threats against his family, is now allowing the jury, which has also received threats, to consider lesser charges against Rittenhouse, increasing the chances that he will be convicted. The article explains the current charges and provides details on the possible lesser charges.

When jurors in the homicide trial of Kyle Rittenhouse begin deliberations, expected early this week, the young man’s actions during a night of unrest on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year will not be in dispute.

Rittenhouse, then 17, shot at four people with a semiautomatic rifle, killing two of them and wounding another. Nearly all of it was captured on video that was analyzed frame-by-frame over the last two weeks.

The prosecution has sought to portray Rittenhouse as a teenage vigilante who illegally possessed the gun and acted criminally and recklessly.

Defense lawyers — backed up by the defendant’s riveting and emotional testimony — argued that he acted in self-defense.

After closing arguments, set for Monday, the jury will get the case.

The panel will consider five felony counts and a misdemeanor weapons charge against Rittenhouse. Using an AR-15-type rifle, he killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz, 27, during street demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Here are the counts the jury will weigh after Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder instructs them on the law:

First-degree reckless homicide, use of a dangerous weapon

Count 1 states that Rittenhouse recklessly caused the death of Rosenbaum under circumstances that showed utter disregard for human life.

The judge denied a prosecution request for the jury to also be instructed on second-degree reckless homicide.

Rittenhouse testified he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot Rosenbaum after the man threw a plastic bag at him and chased him.

“I didn’t do anything wrong. I defended myself,” he testified.

Under cross, Rittenhouse said that he knew Rosenbaum was unarmed. He said he pointed his rifle at Rosenbaum in an attempt to deter him and acknowledged that was dangerous.

“If I would have let Mr. Rosenbaum take my firearm from me, he would have used it and killed me with it and probably killed more people,” he testified.

Rittenhouse broke down in tears at one point, leading to a short break.

“I think it was a game changer to put him on the stand,” CNN legal analyst Joey Jackson said. “Number one, you humanize him… More important, number two, he explained his uses of force.”

Rittenhouse’s testimony couldn’t have been scripted any better, criminal defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh said.

The “biggest issue” is whether the jury finds Rittenhouse credible, he told CNN. “Secondly, do they believe then that it equals he reasonably feared death or great bodily harm?”

Wisconsin law allows the use of deadly force only if “necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm.”

“Whether he engaged in self defense and did so reasonably and thought his life was in immediate danger … that’s what the jury has to assess ultimately,” Jackson said of Rittenhouse.

Prosecutors also requested the jury be given instruction on provocation. They argued Rittenhouse provoked Rosenbaum by raising his gun and pointing it at somebody, which led to the victim running after him.

The judge agreed to allow that the panel consider whether Rittenhouse provoked Rosenbaum into attacking him — thus negating self-defense.

Ellie Honig, a CNN senior legal anaylst and a former prosecutor, said the provocation instruction was an important win for the prosecution.

Honig said the instruction allows prosecutors to argue “the defendant went too far, used deadly force when it wasn’t reasonably necessary” and that he “provoked the attack, and hence cannot argue self-defense.”

First-degree recklessly endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon

Count 2 states that Kyle Rittenhouse recklessly endangered the safety of Richard McGinniss — a journalist with the conservative Daily Caller — under circumstances that show utter disregard for human life.

The state asked that the jury also be instructed on second-degree recklessly endangering safety. Schroeder said he was inclined to give the additional instruction on the lesser charge.

The judge told Rittenhouse that presenting lesser offenses lowered the possibility of a second trial but increased the risk of a conviction.

Allowing jurors to weigh less serious charges could help the prosecution.

“A lot of times … the jury gets into a heated discussion about whether he’s guilty or not guilty of intentional conduct,” said CNN legal analyst and former prosecutor Paul Callan.

“And they compromise on a lesser charge when they have one available. If they don’t have one available, it’s either guilty of one of the higher charges or not guilty.”

Rittenhouse Self-Defense Trial: Prosecution’s Star Witness Admits He Was Shot After Pointing Gun at Kyle

Gaige Grosskeutz, the Antifa-affiliated rioter who serves as the prosecution’s star witness in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, admitted under questioning by the defense that he was only fired upon by Rittenhouse after he had advanced on the teen, dropped his hands, and pointed his weapon at Rittenhouse. Gaige Grosskreutz’ testimony showed that he lied to authorities in his official statements, omitted information, and chased Kyle Rittenhouse with a loaded handgun before pointing it at Rittenhouse and getting shot. Grosskreutz filed a claim against the city and county of Kenosha for $10 million to compensate for his injuries, and he also filed a lawsuit in federal court, without ever disclosing that he possessed a firearm at the scene.

Gaige Grosskeutz, the Antifa-affiliated rioter who serves as the prosecution’s star witness in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial, admitted under questioning by the defense that he was only fired upon by Rittenhouse after he had advanced on the teen, dropped his hands, and pointed his weapon at Rittenhouse.

“Now, you’d agree your firearm was pointed at Mr. Rittenhouse, correct?” defense lawyer Corey Chorafisi asked Grosskreutz as a still image from video footage of the shooting was shown to the courtroom, to which Grosskreutz responded, “Yes.”

When the witness disagreed with Chorafisi’s assertion that Rittenhouse only fired when Grosskreutz pointed his gun at the teen, the defense attorney asked him what he saw in the image. “That looks like my bicep being vaporized, yes,” the visibly emotional Grosskreutz admitted.

Minneapolis: New Riots, Antifa/ BLM Agitator Says: “I’m Not Gonna Lie, I Forgot His Name”

US Marshals shot and killed Winston Boogie Smith Jr, 32, in a parking garage as they tried to arrest him on a felony-arms rap on June 4, 2021. Rioters set fires, blocked traffic and looted following the shooting of Smith, who was armed and fired at law enforcement officers. Last year, riots in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd tore the city apart. Crime has soared while the police force has been reduced by one third, a loss of 200 officers. Winston Smith posted violent and angry messages on social media calling for people to bring guns and bombs to fight a war against police.

According to records, Smith was convicted of felony aggravated robbery in 2017, was on probation and unable to possess a firearm. If he had been nabbed with a firearm by cops, he could have sent back to prison. In a nearby county, Smith was wanted for failing to appear for a sentencing hearing May 19 after he pleaded guilty to felony firearm possession. Smith had two other arrests on his record: for driving without a license, which he was convicted of, and for stealing 20 packs of Newport cigarettes, which was dismissed. He also had been cited 15 times for traffic violations and received two tickets for marijuana possession.

An Antifa/ BLM rioter who was interviewed by Antifa news outlet Unicorn Riot about the shooting said: “I’m not gonna lie, I forgot his name.”

Winston Smith

Several people were arrested as protesters rocked Minneapolis for the second night in a row, blocking traffic and setting fires in the wake of a fatal police shooting earlier in the week.

Demonstrations Friday evening were initially peaceful, according to reports, but devolved as protesters blocked rush-hour traffic at the busy intersection of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue, according to local reports, using a makeshift barricade of bike racks, motorcycles and dumpsters.

The unrest began Thursday after U.S. Marshals shot and killed Winston Boogie Smith Jr., 32, in a parking garage as they tried to arrest Smith on a felony-arms rap.

Smith exchanged gunfire with cops, authorities said, according to court records. Smith died of multiple gunshot wounds, the Hennepin County medical examiner’s office reported Saturday morning.

Smith’s family demanded answers from authorities.

US Embassies Worldwide Flew Black Lives Matter Flags. LGBT Pride Flag Also Authorized for US Consulates.

US embassies and consulates across the globe flew Black Lives Matter (BLM) flags after being authorized and encouraged to do so for the first time ever by Secretary of State Antony Blinken. It’s now expected to be a regular practice, particularly in instances of race-related events or memorials. Critic Richard Grenell said that it violates the Hatch Act, endorses one NGO over another and undermines American security by endorsing calls for defunding the police. Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors described the BLM leadership team as “trained Marxists.” She recently stepped down as BLM’s executive director after a dispute over her purchase of $3 million in real estate.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken earlier this year announced that US embassies and consulates around the world could fly the “Pride” flag on the same flagpole as the American flag during “Pride season” in the month of June. Republicans are seeking support for the “Only Old Glory Act” that would prohibit any standard besides the American flag from flying at US embassies. Republican Representative Ralph Norman said that the American flag should not be used as a prop to promote any agenda or political ideology.

US embassies and consulates across the globe this week flew Black Lives Matter (BLM) flags after being authorized and encouraged to do so for the first time ever in a memo by Secretary of State Antony Blinken. It’s now expected to be a regular practice, particularly in instances of race-related events or memorials.

Just ahead of the May 25 one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, a State Department memo was sent to all diplomatic staff worldwide saying that it “supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content”. It further encouraged speeches and commemorative events related to diplomatic engagements on the anniversary “and beyond”. Subsequently on Tuesday BLM flags were photographed flying at various US diplomatic compounds across the globe, stretching from east Asia to Greece to Spain and Latin America.

Blinken said in a Tuesday video commemorating the Floyd anniversary that America can only be “credible force for human rights around the world” if it faces “the realities of racism and hatred here at home.”

It’s a reversal of a State Dept. crackdown last year on embassies abroad flying politically charged banners of non-government and partisan organizations, also sparking intense controversy given it’s widely acknowledged BLM is so much more than a mere racial justice organization, and also given the summer’s violent riots and looting in which sections of US cities burned and police were attacked. As The Washington Examiner recalls of BLM leadership’s own words

Black Lives Matter Global Network has been a lightning rod for many conservatives since one co-founder of the group described the leadership team as “trained Marxists” organizing based on those principles.

Denver School Board Director and Black Lives Matter Activist Accused of Molesting Over 60 Undocumented Teens

Tay Anderson, a Democrat Denver School Board director and Black Lives Matter organizer, has been accused of sexually assaulting over 60 illegal immigrant students. Last month, Mary Brooks Fleming, a mother of three students in the Denver Public School (DPS) district, testified before the state legislature that 62 children in the district were sexually assaulted and some were “violently raped” by a school board member. In some cases, she said that the minors were forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Tay Anderson, 21, the youngest member of the school board, was later identified as the accused school board member. No student has made any police reports alleging sexual assault by Anderson. Mary Brooks Fleming said that the students did not report the assaults because they were afraid of their families being deported.

The Denver Public School Board launched an investigation into accusations against Anderson in April after the Denver Black Lives Matter chapter alleged “that a woman came to them to report that Anderson had sexually assaulted her.” Former members of the anti-gun violence group “Never Again Colorado” alleged that Anderson had engaged in inappropriate behavior when he was the group’s president in 2018.

Democrat Denver School Board director and Black Lives Matter organizer has been accused of sexually assaulting over 60 undocumented students—some as young as 14-years-old.

The alleged predator, Tay Anderson, denied the accusations over the weekend, while announcing that he will step back from everyday board duties during the investigation.

The allegations came out during legislative testimony last week, when a parent claimed that a person employed by the district was sexually assaulting and targeting undocumented teens, CBSDenver reported.

Mary Brooks Fleming, a mother of three students within the Denver Public School district, testified before the state House Judiciary Committee that some of the children were “violently raped” by the employee and, in some case, forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Brooks Fleming appeared before the committee to testify in support of legislation that would make it easier for victims to sue institutions who employ child sexual abusers. The mother is a volunteer at a local nonprofit organization that aids sexual assault victims.

“Individuals were coming to my home asking for medical attention. One was as young as 14 and needed stitches. All in all, 61 high school students and one recent graduates would turn to me for help,” Fleming said, shaking and holding back tears. “Sixty-two victims as young as 14! Sixty-one were undocumented or dreamers. All were so afraid of this one man!” she added.

The DPS school board confirmed in a statement Friday night that the accusations were against Anderson, and that Denver police was also aware of the allegations.

“Those who came to my home didn’t have health insurance, couldn’t afford emergency rooms, and even if they could, they wanted to avoid mandatory reporters for fear that such an interaction could jeopardize their family,” Brooks Fleming said in the legislative testimony. “It is horrifying to realize that someone had preyed on these children, knowing their silence was guaranteed.”

Police Ignore Three Incidents of BLM and Antifa Members Threatening Citizens with Guns in Cities Across the US Last Week

Last Thursday, armed BLM and Antifa agitators in Portland, some carrying AK-47 and AR-15 firearms, shut down a road, beat a man who exited his truck, and stole his gun. He was taken to the hospital. The rioters smashed out windows of another vehicle. Police made no arrests.

In Louisville, Kentucky, BLM militants harassed diners in an upscale restaurant; a diner and BLM members were both photographed brandishing firearms, according to police. And in Plano, Texas, a group of BLM belligerents shut down a road on Friday night and pointed a gun at a motorist who confronted the mob. The leftists later doxxed the frustrated driver. No arrests have been made in any of the three gun-related threats, according to reports.

Portland, Oregon: warning — strong language:

Joe Hall, a Portland man, stood up to protestors on Thursday, and wound up with severe injuries for his trouble. He is now recovering in hospital and has spoken with the press.

“Antifa owns the streets of Portland. The consequence for standing up for yourself is a trip to the hospital, a large medical bill, and widespread mockery on social media,” says Ian Michael Cheong.

Minneapolis City Council Candidate Rita Ortega Suggests Torching Wealthy Neighborhoods, and BLM Supporters Imply that White People Should Be Killed

Minnesota: Margarita (Rita) Ortega, a Minneapolis City Council candidate, encouraged rioters to target the city’s wealthiest residents instead of causing damage to poor communities. She posted this Facebook message: “Just a personal thought — just in case y’all feel like burning shit down, the poor community is not your oppressors. FYI — lake of the isles has more than needed and won’t be missed.” In a shocking collection of interviews from the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis, BLM supporters agreed that the city should be burned and implied that white people need to be killed. They claim that thousands of unarmed black men are killed by police each year. The real number from last year was 18. -GEG

In a shocking collection of interviews from the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis, far-left extremists admitted to wanting another civil war and implied that white people need to be killed.

Gonzo journalist and filmmaker Ami Horowitz interviewed several people who were attending the memorial to get their take on things like… burning the city down and using violence against white people. Their responses will surprise no one.

Video link:  https://twitter.com/AmiHorowitz/status/1384542943357202441/video/1

“Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?” one of the women asked. “I say burn the city down, y’know? So they can see that we’re here,” another woman asserted.

One of the women went on to say that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all.

“There shouldn’t even be a trial, he should be convicted just as is,” she said.

The extremists were all in agreement that if he was not convicted they would support “street justice” for him, meaning murder.

One of the women said that she believed that “thousands” of unarmed black men were killed last year in the United States.

They all also seemed to agree that there is a “genocide” happening to African Americans — and “anyone who isn’t white.”

When asked about a second Civil War, one young woman said “if that’s what it takes, then we have to do it.”

Another responded, “if that’s what it takes, then I believe so.”

Asked if it will happen, yet another woman said “probably.”

“I don’t want to say we need to start killing all white folks, but it’s like…” one of the militant extremists said.

Minneapolis: Derek Chauvin Found ‘Guilty’ on All Three Charges

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all three counts by the jury, after it deliberated for more than 10 hours, in the trial for murder in the death of George Floyd last year. Chauvin was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder by way of an “eminently dangerous” act, showing a “depraved mind,” and second-degree manslaughter via unreasonable risk. He faces a maximum of 75 years in prison. Sentencing will occur in approximately eight weeks according to the judge. -GEG

Summary by JW Williams

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all three counts by the jury, after it deliberated for more than 10 hours, in the trial for murder in the death of George Floyd last year. Chauvin was convicted of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder by way of an “eminently dangerous” act, showing a “depraved mind,” and second-degree manslaughter via unreasonable risk. He faces 75 years in prison. Sentencing will occur in approximately eight weeks according to the judge.

Joe Biden made a public statement that while the jury was deliberating that he believes the evidence in the Derek Chauvin trial is “overwhelming,” and wants us to know that he hopes for the ‘right’ verdict in the murder case. Due to his statement and Maxine Waters’ encouragement to BLM to “get more confrontational”, this case is likely to be appealed. Presiding Judge Peter Cahill responded by saying, “I’ll give you that Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned,” adding that “I wish that elected officials would stop talking about this case, especially in a manner that is disrespectful to the rule of law and the judicial branch and our function.” Jacob Frey, the Mayor of Minneapolis, blamed police for Floyd’s death and said, “Regardless of the decision made by the jury, there is one true reality, which is that George Floyd was killed at the hands of police.”

Police bodycam footage showed George Floyd calling out that he could not breathe numerous times before he was restrained on the ground. The medical examiner noted that Floyd had severe heart disease and had a fatal level of fentanyl in his system when he died.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz declared a state of emergency on Monday, and called in the National Guard. He obtained $9-million in emergency funding for law enforcement’s response to anticipated unrest. Six states and Washington DC requested help from the National Guard to protect their cities.

The jurors were intimidated, and threats were made by BLM to burn the city to the ground. Candace Owens called the verdict “mob rule”. She blamed the media for spreading propaganda lies, and for refusing to show the entire bodycam video that would have given context to the incident.
