VIDEO: Riots Surface in San Bernardino After Armed Suspect Resists Arrest, Retrieves Weapon

This one seems clear cut.

Black Lives Matter-style riots exploded in the city of San Bernardino, California on Friday night, after a police officer shot a man who was resisting arrest while possessing a gun the night before.

Mark Matthew Bender Jr., 35, was shot four times during a struggle with a San Bernardino police officer on Thursday. Authorities encountered Bender when responding to 911 calls reporting a man jumping onto cars while in possession of a gun outside of the King Tut liquor store.

The San Bernardino Police Department revealed footage of the arrest, which reveals Bender ignoring a command to show his hands to a police officer with a drawn pistol and struggling when he’s placed under arrest.

More footage released by the San Bernardino Police Department reveals Bender struggled against officers, and was holding a black object that appeared to be a weapon the moment before he was shot.

The suspect was able to physically overpower the officer and retrieved a weapon from his pocket, and was turning to face the officer,” a statement from SBPD said. “At this time, an officer-involved shooting occurred. The officer discharged his duty weapon four times and the suspect was struck multiple times.

In spite of the seemingly strong justification for the use of lethal force, mobs congregated to riot in the streets of the California city the night after the shooting. Rioters stood in the streets and keyed the cars of totally random motorists as a “protest” against the shooting.

Other rioters assaulted motorists, apparently under the impression that violent acts towards innocent civilians would accomplish something.

Seems like the Black Lives Matter movement has moved beyond the shootings of “unarmed black man.” They’ll now protest for gun-wielding criminal suspects, as well.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Draws Up Strong Anti-Riot Legislation in Expansion of Stand Your Ground Law

Awesome.

Published

on

Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis is looking to expand his state’s Stand Your Ground law with specific anti-mob legislation, according to the Miami Herald.

The Miami Herald’s report is negative and critical in tone, but it does mention that Governor DeSantis is simply following up on his promise to crack down on mob violence.

He has proposed expanding, to quote the Herald, “the list of ‘forcible felonies’ under Florida’s self-defense law to justify the use of force against people who engage in criminal mischief that results in the ‘interruption or impairment’ of a business, and looting, which the draft defines as a burglary within 500 feet of a ‘violent or disorderly assembly.'”

DeSantis’ proposal would also make it a third-degree felony to block traffic while protesting, offer immunity to drivers who unintentionally hurt or kill a protester who blocks traffic, and allow the state of Florida to withhold funds from locales that cut police budgets.
