Opinion| When a peaceful protest, which each and every human being is entitled to express themselves, goes wrong and become violent, often leading to an angry, unruly, and violent mob, as far too many do these day, terrible things happen.
The media is doing those who seek to peacefully air their grievances a huge disservice by trying to conflate their non violent protests with those of the radical and violent mobs.
Clips like this from the brother of the butcher of New York, Andrew Cuomo, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, are only furthering the divide in this nation:
Encouraging people to become violent and not condemning them when they do, especially when congregating in large numbers where tensions are already running high, is going to lead to more out of control mobs, which leads to more property damage, and worse yet, people getting hurt.
Take this unfortunate incident that occurred in the Democrat stronghold of Los Angeles. It is being reported that a South African man, who protested against the apartheid back in the day, and was engaged in a BLM protest when he was struck by a rubber bullet.
What makes this story especially cringe worthy is where he was struck … right in the scrotum. Apparently this caused one of his testicles to rupture and from what I can gather, be removed by doctors.
The Gateway Pundit stated: ‘Bradley Steyn says he plans on suing the LAPD after law enforcement officials shot him in the scrotum on May 30 during a ‘protest.’’
Bradley Steyn — a South African man who protested apartheid back in the day — claims he was maimed by law enforcement during a May 30 George Floyd protest in L.A.’s Fairfax District.
He claims he witnessed police brutality, then became a victim himself when cops allegedly used batons to beat him in the chest … before shooting him with rubber bullets at point-blank range.
Bradley claims he was hit in the inner thigh and genitals and has since suffered horrific pain and the loss of a testicle.
Unfortunately for him, his choice of attorneys, Gloria Allred’s daughter, Lisa Bloom, is only going to make half the population suspect of his motives and the circumstances of the case. Bloom and her mother are notorious for standing on top of their victims in order to soak in as much lime light for themsleves as possible, IMHO.
LAPD shot my client Bradley Steyn, anti apartheid and #BLM activist, with a rubber bullet to his scrotum, rupturing his testicle.
We will fight for justice for Bradley and several other police rubber bullet victims I represent, who were also maimed.https://t.co/BLneq9p537

It’s a shame this happened. It’s time law and order was restored to this great nation once and for all. The right to peaceably assemble must be protected and violence must be stopped the moment it starts or else our nation is going to fall to the most radical among us and we can not let that happen for our children’s sake.
