BLM Activists Using New ‘Weapon’ To Attack Trump Supporters, 2 Have Been Hospitalized
The founder of a pro-Black Lives Matter group call Caravan4Justice has been criminally charged in Southern California after attacking Trump Supporters.
“At approximately 3 p.m. after several dispersal orders, a vehicle in the parking lot of the Yorba Linda Public Library at 18181 Imperial Highway struck at least two individuals,” The Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. “The driver, believed to be part of the Caravan for Justice, continued to leave the parking lot and was detained a short distance away from the incident. The two people struck, a man and a woman believed to be at the protest, were transported to a nearby hospital with major injuries but are expected to survive.”
“The driver, Tatiana Turner, 40, of Long Beach, was arrested,” the department added. “She will be booked into the Orange County Jail for attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, and the investigation is ongoing.”
The Daily Mail discovered that Turner is a Black Lives Matter organizer:
The chaos unfolded as about 250 people gathered, some with a group called Caravan4Justice supporting Black Lives Matter, and others to stage a nearby counter-protest supporting President Donald Trump.
Federal records show that Turner filed a trademark application for Caravan4Justice in July, and a GoFundMe campaign names her as the group’s ‘founder’.
Police confirmed that Turner is believed to be a member of the Caravan4Justice.
Both, CBS Los Angeles and ABC7 reported that the protest was a Black Lives Matter protest.
The man that was hit “suffered two broken legs and was hospitalized and one woman suffered major and moderate injuries throughout her body,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
Trump supporters had scheduled the rally and BLM showed up to counter the protest. Then one of the organizers drove their car into the crowd.
“Approximately 30 minutes after the protests began, we began to receive reports of physical altercations occurring between the two protest groups, including at least one individual who was pepper-sprayed by another protestor,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said. “At that time, the crowd grew to approximately 250 protestors. Due to the physical altercations and reports of individuals within the crowd having weapons, an unlawful assembly was declared and a dispersal order was issued.”
Stay safe out there folks.
