Shot protester loses eye as journalists come under attack in protests

A STUDENT has lost his right eye after being shot in the face with a police tear gas canister.

Balin Brake said he was peacefully protesting in the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana, when officers fired at the crowd unprovoked.

The 21-year-old, who works part-time at a TV station but was not on duty at the time, was thrown to the ground and then rushed to hospital following the attack on Saturday. Despite emergency surgery, doctors told local media there was ‘nothing left but the shell of his eye’.

Mr Brake, who was protesting George Floyd’s death in police custody on May 25, later told The Journal Gazette newspaper his injury was ‘small collateral for the battle we’re fighting’. His injury came on the day photographer Linda Tirado was left permanently blind in her left eye after being shot with a rubber bullet as she captured protests in Minneapolis over Mr Floyd’s death.

**********
Investigative news outlet Bellingcat said it had documented 101 cases of media representatives being assaulted by officers, in many cases deliberately.

3. yep.

if you are on twitter, check out the hashtag. The police are out of control, not the protesters.

I think they may see that their time is coming to an end. That time when they could do whatever the fuck they wanted to any person in their custody for any reason.

I hope there are consequences for all of these bad acts, and these people go back to slinging burgers at McDonald's or something. They are not fit to be PEACE officers. There are so many of them! it's horrifying actually.

4. The hardworking people at McDonald's should not be subjected to these monsters

They should be emptying Porta Potties -- also honest work, but they can do it alone so they don't have to subject anybody else to their disgusting presence.
