    Default Your thoughts? Another McCloskey's?

    So what do you all think? Who was in the wrong here? Who more in the wrong here? And should their be police action as a result?

    I don't know exactly what started this. But apparently the white guy was upset/angry/scared or whatever, so he had his gun at the ready. Some protesters saw this and then stopped and were arguing, as a few tried to stand between and become peacemakers (good for them). But NO ONE should have stopped and engaged him. And this idiot should not have been waving and egging them on to come closer. But I can't hear what's going back and forth really. I can only really judge on visual aspects.

    Restaurant Customer Allegedly Pulls Gun Against BLM Protesters

    Video taken on a cell phone shows a customer at Louisville, Kentucky’s La Chasse restaurant allegedly pull a gun when Black Lives Matter protesters began disrupting the eatery.

    The New York Post reports the incident occurred on May 1, 2021, the day of this year’s Kentucky Derby. The BLM protesters “were marching to Churchill Downs to demand justice for Breonna Taylor.”

    When the protesters approached diners who were sitting outdoors a patron in blue could be seen standing, allegedly holding a handgun in his right hand.

    Upon seeing the firearm, some of the protesters began persuading the others to keep walking.

    The Courier-Journal’s Hayes Gardner posted video of the incident:



    Heavy.com noted Gardner posted another comment to Twitter, saying, “For those who have asked, yes this man appeared to be armed, as were a few protesters. It was a tense few minutes. #Louisville.”

    Louisville Metropolitan Police police spokeswoman Alicia Smiley told Fox News, “During the encounter both patrons and protesters brandished firearms. This incident occurred after the arrests of southbound protesters in the area on the 1500 block of Bardstown Road.

    The arrests of that group were made after protesters repeatedly blocked the roadway despite officers giving multiple verbal requests for them to utilize the sidewalk.”

    He didn't seem to be obnoxious about it like the McCloskey's.

    Never show your weapon unless you feel you are in fear of your life. You need to be prepared to use it if you pull it, so don't pull it out unless you plan to use. I was taught to never use it to intimidate.

    Of course, open carry in AZ so if it's in your holster people can see it and hopefully they're smart enough to go their way.
