BLM Rioters Attack Because Knife-Wielding Suspect Shot After Stabbing Four

Clear case of self-defense against a man who just carried out a massive stabbing spree… but to BLM, the criminal is the victim.

In Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a police officer—who was forced to defend himself from an armed suspect who had just carried out a stabbing spree—involved shooting led to new riots as Black Lives Matter Marxists championed the criminal by destroying other people’s personal property.

PJ Media reported:

Black Lives Matter riots came to Lancaster, Pa., on Sunday night after a police officer shot a Latino man who was charging him with a knife, according to police. Rioters looted local businesses, built a barricade, set up a massive bonfire, smashed windows at the police station and post office, and spray-painted “Death to cops!” on a nearby wall.

This incident proves yet again that agitators with the Black Lives Matter movement will seize on any opportunity to engage in looting, rioting, and arson. Rioters will twist the facts in order to claim police brutality even when there was none. They will claim racism when there was none. Using Marxist critical race theory, they will claim oppression when there was none.

On Sunday afternoon at about 4:15 p.m., a Lancaster police officer responded to a domestic disturbance call, the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office explained in a statement. “On scene, a Lancaster city police officer fired at a 27-year-old man who was armed with a knife. The man, identified as Ricardo Munoz, was killed and pronounced dead at the scene.”

Lancaster County detectives have begun investigating the use of force. The DA’s office did release information “based on a preliminary investigation, which included review of footage from the firing officer’s body camera.”

“The footage shows that when the officer gets in front of a residence in the 300 block of Laurel Street, Munoz immediately emerges from inside and runs toward the officer, brandishing a knife above his head, in clear view, in a threatening manner. The officer then fired. No one else was struck by gunfire,” the DA’s office reported. The officer involved has been placed on leave.

Bodycam footage clearly shows Munoz running after the officer, holding a knife in his hand, after leaving the house following an angry confrontation with a woman.

This is the bodycam footage of the officer-involved shooting in Lancaster, PA that Black Lives Matter is rioting over. The perpetrator charged at the police officer with a knife over his head with clear intent to strike.

While the public does not know all the facts, this video rather conclusively shows that the officer fired in self-defense. At close range, a knife can be more deadly than a gun, and self-defense instructors insist that if someone with a knife charges you at a distance of ten feet or less, you should open fire.

Even so, agitators seized on this incident, using Black Lives Matter rhetoric to justify violence.

Shortly after the shooting, rioters broke into stores and started looting. Blaze TV’s Elijah Schaffer captured footage of the aftermath of looting. “[L]ooting has started in Lancaster at Villa athletic store approximately 1 hour 50 minutes ago according to the shop owner,” Schaffer tweeted. “Groups of rioters are roaming the city breaking windows and stealing merchandise It was too dangerous to follow them since there are no police.”

A large crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters marched against police officers’ right to defend themselves from potentially deadly knife attacks.

Rioters removed street signs from the streets and assembled a barricade to fight the police.

After the riot, agitators created a bonfire in the middle of the street.

At some point during the protest or the riot afterward, an activist claimed that minorities built Lancaster. “If you’re a minority, your ancestor built this f****n’ city,” the agitator claimed, explicitly saying that no “white” people built Lancaster.

Fact check: False. German, Irish, and English Americans built Lancaster.

This utterly false statement captures a good deal of the story of the Lancaster riots, however. Agitators did not care that the police officer opened fire in self-defense, in a dangerous situation. This riot followed one day after an unidentified man shot two police officers who were just sitting in their car. Black Lives Matter agitators followed the cops to the hospital, shouting that they hoped the wounded police officers would die. According to police, the rioters physically blocked the entrance to the hospital emergency room.

Despite all this, many media outlets chose to focus on the fact that police arrested a journalist who was covering the agitators’ “protest” outside the hospital.

What kind of “peaceful protester” blocks an emergency room entrance just to wish death on police officers?!

Yet according to some versions of Marxist critical theory, American society is inherently racist and oppressive and black people are oppressed. In order for justice to be achieved, the “oppressed” must rise up and overthrow the “oppressor,” the complexities of the situation be damned. Antifa activists also apparently spread a false report that a black man had been shot. False reports of police shootings of black men inspired riots in Chicago and Minneapolis last month. Some people even try to brainwash themselves to support this narrative.

The riots have arguably oppressed black people far more than the U.S. supposedly does. The riots have destroyed black livesblack livelihoods, and black monuments. At least 26 Americans have died in the riots, most of them black.

Antifa rioters may be shooting for a race war, but many black leaders have denounced the Black Lives Matter movement. Over 100 black pastors recently condemned the Black Lives Matter movement and urged Nike to distance itself from it.

Penn Live reported on the stabbings:

Four people had to be taken to the hospital Monday night after police say they were stabbed following a physical altercation.

One of those victims is a juvenile male, who police say remains in serious condition.

Ricardo Miguel Munoz, 25, faces four counts of aggravated assault stemming from the incident.

After Munoz was taken into custody, officers heard people inside the residence that he tried to get into. The people inside the residence told officers that there were injured inside – once they made their way into the residence, officers found three adults with injuries consistent with stabbing or slashing, police said.

Police also said officers found a 16-year-old male to the rear of the property with “multiple injuries” as a result of a stabbing, police said.

Police reported the following injuries:

  • The juvenile male had stab wounds to his face, right thigh, left ankle, and the right side of his torso. He is in the hospital in serious, but stable condition.
  • A 22-year-old woman suffered a slash injury to one of her hands. She was treated at the hospital and released.
  • A 26-year-old man suffered a slash wound to his head. He was treated at the hospital and released.
  • Another 26-year-old man suffered a stab wound to his left arm. He was treated at the hospital and released.

The juvenile male, the woman, and the man with the stab wound to his arm are all related to each other, police said. Police also said Munoz is not related to any of the victims.
