A drive in a pick-up truck ran through a mob of protesters who were blocking the road and appearing to grow more violent. One of the demonstratos was struck down, a female protester with a sign. The driver once he realized that she was struck, slammed on the breaks. Rioters then swarmed his truck attempting to bash the windows of the vehicle in and cause harm.
The driver then sped away, to stay out of harms way.

The driver was reportedly stopped by police, but was not immediately arrested as officers noted damage to his vehicle caused by the violent demonstrators, according to the Los Angeles Times. A photojournalist at the scene alleged the truck operator was “definitely” the aggressor in the incident, the Times reported.
In a separate incident a white Prius attempted to maneuver through the protest happening in Hollywood Thursday night, Black Lives Matter rioters jumped into a nearby car and chased it down. The Prius driver was not trying to hit any protesters and was only trying to get through the crowd as carefully as possible. The car full of Black Lives Matter protesters caused a car accident during the chase and proceeded to physically attack the white Prius driver.
Here is some of the footage that was caught of this incident:

“A person driving a white Prius was chased down and by protesters after trying to drive through the crowd in #Hollywood. The group that chased the driver began hitting the car and possibly broke a window,” CBS LA reporter Mike Rogers tweeted with the video.
The white Prius had drove several blocks from the violent protesting before the Black Lives Matter rioters could catch up and cut them off. When the driver tried to back out to get away from their attackers, they hit another car, the driver of that car appeared to know the rioters in the pursuing vehicle. It looked like a total ambush.
The BLM rioter in the first vehicle jumped out and immediately began physically assaulting the Prius driver right through his window. Eventually they were able to escape, but not before taking a beating.
The driver of the white Prius was detained.

Sadly this kind of vilent behavior is happening across the county.
According to a release, the garage and three vehicles at a residence on the 6900 block of N. Morgan Ave. were destroyed in a fire that erupted following a reported explosion just before 4 a.m. Wednesday.
The has been deemed suspicious and the investigation is “extremely active,” police said, noting that the family had a “fairly large” “Trump 2020” sign and prior to the garage burning down officers documented fresh spray paint on its exterior with “Biden 2020,” “BLM” and the anarchy symbol, an unusual combination of messages considering they occupy significantly different positions on the political spectrum.
With all this chaos it is hard to believe that FBI Director Christopher Wray would call Antifa-BLM protesters a movement or ideology instead of what they really are…. terrorists who are terrorizing fellow Americans.
