Lopez is now facing charges of murder and first-degree wanton endangerment, according to a report that Louisville Metro Police officials released on June 28, 2020.
Lopez is accused of murdering Tyler Gerth, a Louisville photographer who participated in these protests.
On the night of June 27, MetroSafe Communications reported multiple gunshots being fired off at Jefferson Square Park. Officers arrived at the scene and found one person shot in the face in the middle of the park, according to details highlighted in Lopez’s arrest citation.
A number of witnesses were able to identify Lopez, who regularly went to the park, as the gunman. Video footage of the incident showed Lopez shooting a handgun into the crowd.
A number of people in the crowd fired back, shooting Lopez in the leg, per the citation’s account of the events.
Lopez was sent to University of Louisville Hospital and arrested and charged at 10:47 p.m. that night.
Protesters recounted that Lopez had an altercation with another person at the park on June 27, but it wasn’t Gerth.
Lopez had a previous police record before the shooting on June 27, which featured criminal actions such as third-degree trespassing and not maintaining his car insurance.
Although the horrific death of Breonna Taylor, people justly protested this death.
However, radical opportunists have taken advantage of the situation and are causing mayhem.
Governments at all levels need to step in and restore order if we want any semblance of productive policy discussions to continue.
Hack Economist Paul Krugman Celebrates the Death of Elderly White People
On June 30, 2020, economist Paul Krugman expressed his desire for the death of White Americans.
He tweeted, “Reality is coming for white supremacists driving golf carts” in reference to an article from Bloomberg News that highlighted how the Wuhan virus pandemic is particularly deadly and disproportionately impacting older segments of the American population.
According to Bloomberg, “record numbers of Floridians 75 and older are testing positive for Covid-19,” according to a June 29 report.
The report added:
Florida hasn’t seen a departure from its relatively low rate of Covid-19 deaths, but it can take weeks from onset of symptoms to death, and the surge in infections is recent.
The new positivity rate — which measures the proportion of people testing positive for the first time compared to the day’s overall testing — started climbing significantly about two weeks ago.
Common sense measures such as quarantining and isolating the elderly population make sense in these circumstances. But total lockdowns are an overreach.
To the point of Krugman race-baiting, this is not a surprise given his status as a mainstream economist.
Political correctness is his M.O., from pushing central banking to perpetuating destructive identity politics.
The Right will need to assert itself against this mob and keep them from gaining power.
More importantly, they must implement policies such as defunding public education at all levels to prevent these people from further consolidating power.
