BLM protesters claimed police officers stationed in San Bernardino are coming from “KKK enclaves”
He also proclaims that it is “THEM AGAINST US”
Dozens of protesters came out Friday night to demonstrate against the police-involved shooting of a Black man in Southern California one night earlier.
The protesters in San Bernardino marched down a street, blocking traffic at an intersection near where the man was shot. They shouted slogans such as, “Abolish the police!” and “F— the police!” according to videos on social media.
A cellphone video shot by a bystander captured part of the shooting in which an officer shot and killed a suspect who police say had pulled a gun from his pocket Thursday.
Police identified the man who was shot as Mark Matthew Bender Jr., a 35-year-old San Bernardino resident. They said his lengthy rap sheet includes an arrest for attempted murder.
Police said they had responded after a man was reported with a gun-jumping on cars in a parking lot on Baseline Street. The police said the suspect, named Mark Matthew Bender Jr., refused to follow the officer’s commands and attempted to enter a store that had several people inside.
The video shows a physical altercation between the police officer and the suspect before he was fatally shot.
As the struggle continues, Bender on the ground can be seen reaching for an item in his waistband.
As both men get back on their feet, the officer is then seen drawing his weapon and firing four shots.
San Bernardino police Sgt. John Echevarria said a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun was recovered at the scene.
