A white man driving a large SUV was caught on video plowing through a group of Black Lives Matter protesters.
The video, taken by “Rebelutionary_Z” begins with a shot of a crowd in the street in Kirkwood, a suburb of St. Louis, on Thursday night, protesting over the trial of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, who was found innocent of murdering Anthony Lamar Smith.
At the beginning of the video, the SUV can be seen speeding toward the protesters in the street, with the horn blasting and people running to get out of the way. After breaking through, the car stops after being hit by thrown items, before the driver speeds off, with no police pursuit.
There were no injuries according to The Riverfront Times.
Before plowing through the crowd, the driver has a conversation with one of the protesters and asked him, “What are we protesting tonight?”
The protester said it was about a black man being killed by a police officer.
“You’re disrupting other people’s lives,” the driver said to the protester before adding, “They need to go.”
“That’s the point of a protest,” he is told, to which he angrily replied. “I live in Meacham Park! I’m a white male living in a black community, suck my d*ck. I am the white guy!”
That leads to a conversation over whether he “looks over” his shoulder when a policeman is behind him, with the driver stating “I fear going home from everybody.”
The protestor tells him, “That ain’t the same and that’s why people are out here.”
