SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. – At a ‘mixer’ protest in St. Pete last night, a BLM protester pulled what appears to be a knife on an opposing protester. The opposing protester pulls a gun.
A man filming this episode says, “St. Pete Police, Where The F**K are you?”, there is some irony there, with the ‘Defund The Police’ movement.
St. Pete Police, in a statement said, “Police are aware of videos posted to various social media accounts showing a protestor pulling out a small knife and showing it to an opposing protestor and the opposition responding with showing a handgun. The groups separated and no shots were fired and no one was hurt. No property was damaged. Police are currently investigating the incident. Police had multiple extra squads patrolling the downtown area down to the Pier last night to ensure the safety of residents and business patrons. At one point on the videos, police officers can be seen separating the arguing groups.”
