Black Lies Matter in London are having a Ferguson moment and four police officers were injured as a result. The leaders of the riots claim that police battered Edir Frederico Da Costa, 25, and broke his neck. But just like our BLM the English BLM are liars too. The autopsy showed that police did no injury to anywhere on the suspect’s spine. It’s a regular Hands Up, Don’t Shoot moment.
Four officers have been taken to hospital as riot police attempted to control a violent Black Lives Matter rally in east London.
Rioters threw projectiles at the police line and set fire to bins at the demonstration in Forest Hill in the borough of Newham.
The protest was called after the death of Edir Frederico Da Costa, 25, on the 21st of June, six days after Metropolitan Police officers in Newham stopped him in a car.
Activists claim he was beaten by police and left with a broken neck. However, the Independent Police Complaints Commission said a preliminary post-mortem indicated there were no spinal injuries caused by police, The Times reports.
In total, six police officers were injured, with one male officer sustaining facial injuries and a female officer suffered a head injury, the force revealed in a statement.
The protest of around 200 people started on Sunday afternoon with people holding Black Lives Matter signs made by a group called Stand Up to Racism, which is connected to the disgraced Socialist Workers Party.
As the sun set, things turned violent. Four rioters were arrested for the offences of arson, disorder, and criminal damages. Helicopters were scrambled and roads were closed in the demonstration, which continued until at least 3 am.
