Austin Black Lives Matter Protest – One Man Killed


A man carrying an AK-47 allegedly walked up to a vehicle in an Austin Black Lives Matter protest and was fatally shot shortly before 10 p.m. Saturday. Eight shots could be heard in the video, five in one cluster, three in the next. The BLM supporter shot was Garrett Foster. The driver who shot him has not been identified. (Reuters)

You can hear the gunshots in this video. Someone with a good shooting ‘ear’ might be able to identify the sounds and which gun they came from:

The narrative of the Black Lives Matter supporters differs slightly from the official account. They claim the driver started shooting into the crowd. According to other witnesses, the driver of the vehicle was just attempting to get through the crowd. According to some witnesses, the car sped up as it approached the protesters (Daily News). When the car came through the area of the protesters, people began running toward it. Were they going to damage it and drag the driver out as has occurred in other protests?

The narrative of the BLM supporters is that Garrett Foster was trying to protect his wife, who is wheelchair bound, from the driver because the car was trying to ram protesters (plausible, if true, but approaching a car with a loaded weapon was not wise – especially in Texas). Foster was a regular at the Black Lives Matter protests, according to the activists.

Garrett Foster was interviewed just prior to the incident.

“They  don’t let us march in the streets anymore so I gotta practice somewhere, right?… People who oppose us are pussies and won’t do anything about it.” Garrett Foster

‘Somebody did something,’ to coin a phrase.

The Hiram Gilberto livestream showed protesters walking all over in the streets. So much for that whole “not marching in the streets anymore” statement.

The Black Lives Matter supporters said that Foster was “pushing his wife in her wheelchair” at the time of the shooting. Is that what happened?  Police will have a lot of different takes on this to sift through. But gee, “we don’t need police” you know, they’re all racists. (sigh)

Was she thrown from her wheelchair? Unknown at this point, the investigation is continuing.

The man who shot Foster during the Austin Black Lives Matter protest was detained by police, and is said to be cooperating.
