NYPD Involved in Search for Driver Who Plowed Through Times Square Protest

This was just the latest in a long line of violent incidents occurring at protests around the nation.

As protests continue to bloom around America, several instances of egregious violence have occurred from coast to coast.

This recent spate of trouble began in Kenosha, Wisconsin after a 17 year old Illinois man shot three protesters, killing two and maiming another.  The shooter has claimed self-defense, but companies such as Twitter and Discover have insisted that the young man is a mass murderer.

Just days later, a member of the conservative group Patriot Prayer was gunned down in the streets of Portland, Oregon.  The suspect in that shooting, who publicly proclaimed that he was “100% Antifa”, was killed on Thursday night in a shootout with federal forces.

The New York police department says it is trying to find a car that drove through a group of Black Lives Matter protesters blocking a street in Times Square on Thursday night.

Video posted on social media showed the car jerking through the crowd with its horn blaring as demonstrators scream and scramble out of the way.

One video posted on Twitter by a user named DataInput, showed a dark sedan plowing into a crowd of people who were standing in front of the vehicle with bicycles.

Gwynne Hogan, a WNYC reporter, tweeted that the crowd appeared “rattled” but that “most people were able to jump out of the way.”

Footage of that incident was frightening, to say the least.

The protest in NYC was sparked by the the resurgence of a story from March, in which Rochester police restrained a clearly deranged man who later died of “asphyxiation” according to the medical examiner.
