Video Shows Armed Men On Way To Minneapolis Black Lives Matter Protest Days Before The Shooting
By Daniel Marans
A video of armed, masked white men saying they're on their way to a Black Lives Matter protest encampment in Minneapolis is generating new attention after five activists associated with the movement were shot on Monday night by men who reportedly fit a similar description as those in the video.
Minneapolis police are pursuing three white men suspected of shooting the activists. None of the victims sustained life-threatening injuries.
The description of the suspects in the shooting tracks closely with that of two masked men who visited the Black Lives Matter protest encampment on Thursday.
Black Lives Matter Minneapolis posted a 90-second video to its Facebook page on Friday of two masked young white men spewing racial epithets in a car, apparently on their way to the Black Lives Matter protest encampment. The organization said in an e-mail that supporters sent them the video, but did not provide additional information about its origins.
In the Facebook post, Black Lives Matter activists wrote that they recognized the men in the video as those who had visited the encampment the night before. “Last night 2 white supremacists, one carrying a pistol, showed up to our peaceful protest at the 4th precinct,” the post said. “After community members on livestream started questioning them they left without incident, then we later found a video of them en route to the protest brandishing a pistol and making comments including ‘stay white’ and justifying the killing of Jamar Clark.
