A Portland rioter said in an interview with reporter Elijah Schaffer from Blaze TV that he was shot with bean bag rounds and all he was doing was “peacefully protesting,” but Schaffer had already caught him earlier on camera starting a fire on federal grounds.
The guy reckons that he was just banging on the fence and chanting “Black Lives Matter” as well as the usual accompanying phrase “All Cops Are Bastards” when he was repeatedly hit. He also claimed that the officers had zip ties and tried to arrest him, but he managed to escape.
As usual, some outlets are reporting the guy was attacked by police while peacefully protesting. But of course, as we always find out, that wasn’t the case.
