Brave Portland protester takes pepper-spray shower and then arrested
Viral video shows an unidentified man who cannot resist the urge to fight heavily armed police. On the first try, he gets a multi-line pepper spray response.
He takes a few steps back to prepare for the next dash. The second attempt ends with another shower of pepper spray. The video shows that the burning liquid literally flows down from the man.
A man takes off his shirt and wants to fight police at the BLM/antifa riot in Portland tonight. He charges in and is showered with pepper spray. He goes down. #PortlandRiots #antifa Video by @FromKalen pic.twitter.com/zQE2hwGJJ3— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 16, 2020
Someone behind the scenes asks for a medic. The activist went blind and knelt down. A second later, the rioter attempts a third attack on the police, but this time he gets a pepper-ball shot in the stomach.
When two fellow activists began to carry the man off the battlefield, the officer fired again and hit the blind protester in the buttocks. The video is cut off when five officers arrest the protesters.
And while this behavior is not new, creative observers have substituted background music for the video. Now the video has played out in fresh colors.
This clip is so much more satisfying set to the Cops theme song. ????????BAD BOYS! BAD BOYS!???????? pic.twitter.com/kBbIdbWIUM— Paineful Memes (@PainefulMemes) August 16, 2020
