A video clip has appeared from St. Louis, Missouri showing anti-police protests that happened on Wednesday June 7, 2017. This video of the driver refusing to tolerate the aggressive protester went viral.
On this video, you can see the protesters carrying signs and blocking the streets at an intersection in St. Louis, Missouri, on Wednesday evening.
While some of them were shouting, “F*ck the police,” others used their bodies as human shield to keep drivers from moving. The tension rose quickly between one fed up driver and a one protester.
At first the driver tells the woman to step aside, and after she shows him a middle finger the passenger of the vehicle starts yelling at her.
At that point, the other protesters join the woman and the driver decides to start moving the car. But at one point he steps on the gas and run over the woman.
ZooFeed.com reported that a crowd of protester filled the intersection of Chippewa and Kingshighway in South St. Louis to disrupt traffic after members of SWAT tried to serve a search warrant and got into a shootout with a suspect who was killed after shooting at officers.
He was identified as 21-year-old Isaiah Hammett.
Dennis Torres, Hammett’s grandfather, gave interview for News4, saying: “A bunch of shots were going on. My grandson was trying to protect me on the floor. He went into the dining room then I hear screaming and I see my grandson lying dead on the dining room floor.”
As was reported Hammett was shooting at officer with an AK-47 rifle. Wednesday evening, friends and family of Hammett started to protest with signs that read, “Justice for Isaiah.”
Some of the people there told News4 that Hammett would never do such thing.
Some of those protesting told News4 that Hammett would have never shot at police. This sounds very similar of the “hands up don’t shoot” lie that the media tried to push prior to the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014.
“He’s been taking care of his grandfather since he was 16 years old and he threw his grandfather on the floor, and when he thought somebody was kicking in the door, he didn’t know it was the police,” Hammett’s grandmother, Dawn Atwell, stated.
“He went and took his grandfather and put him on the floor to be safe and then goes in there, and next thing you know, he’s dead.”
As the police stated, there were no officers hurt by the shootout.
Here is the video.
