Clark, 24, was shot by Minneapolis police after getting into a domestic dispute with his girlfriend on Nov. 15. He was unarmed when he was approached by Ringgenberg and Schwarze. The officers claimed Clark tried to take his own life by grabbing Ringgenberg's gun. The incident lasted just over a minute before Clark was fatally shot.
An encampment created by Minneapolis protesters after the shooting of Jamar Clark was torn down Thursday by police, resulting in a protest at City Hall.
One of the two Minneapolis police officers involved in the shooting death of Jamar Clark was sued just 10 days prior to the incident for excessive force in a separate case.
I wish I could say that I am shocked that the assailant was a White male anti-abortion extremist, but that would be a lie. A lie that White America continues to tell itself in order to deny its own capacity for brutality.
"A group of White supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights," Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter told the Star Tribune.
At least five Black Lives Matter protesters were shot by white supremacists during peaceful protests for Jamar Clark, the 24-year-old man gunned down by Minneapolis police officers last week.
Throughout the night, Minneapolis police claimed, via Twitter, that chemical irritant was dispersed by protesters as they attempted to take down the tarp that separated police from demonstrators. Those on the ground, however, denied the claim, posting photographs and videos of police unleashing the irritant on the crowds.
The shutdown, attended by nearly 300 protesters, began at 7:00 p.m. In the end, 43 adults and eight juveniles were arrested and charged with unlawful assembly and pedestrian on the freeway, the state patrol confirmed.
