Black Lives Matter Activist Falls And Badly Injures Himself. Guess Who Immediately Was There To Help?

Thousands of leftist activists and protesters packed the streets outside of Philadelphia’s City Hall on the eve of the second night of the Democratic National Convention. The rally was a melting pot of disenfranchised Bernie supporters, communists, Code Pink, and Black Lives Matter protesters, all converging on a main intersection to block traffic and rally around various megaphone speakers.

One of the uniting principles of the protest involved hurling epithets at the police, who peacefully guarded and escorted the protesters on their march through the city.

Signs reading “Cops Are Killers” and “Disarm The Police” mixed with chants of “F**k the police.” One protester, sporting a grey shirt and a man-bun, wandered the protest handing out flyers and joining in the chants.

Then, a protester accidentally stepped into a busted manhole cover and badly hurt his leg, crying out in pain.

Other protesters gathered around in shock, while a few bent over to pull him out of the sewer.

Cries of “Medic! Medic!” rang out from the crowd. Within moments, those same police officers – who were tasked with protecting the crowd that widely hated them – were there to help.

The cops immediately created a protective barrier.

Four cops eventually joined in to ensure the protester’s safety.

Even though many anti-police signs swarmed all around them.

The injured protester swore at them and waved them off.

The cops stayed to help.

The officer pictured above told me that they called the protester an ambulance, but he demanded that they cancel it.

“I don’t know why they refuse help from us,” Officer Evers said, “Hell, if I fell in the sewer like that I would not care who was helping me.” He shrugged and carried on, telling me “I signed up to serve, that’s what I’m doing.”

Major mistakes have been made by law enforcement in recent history. Those mistakes sometimes can cost lives and we should rightly condemn them and try to stop them from happening again. However, before you do this in a protest:

Remember that every one of those uniformed officers would rush to help you in need. Because your life matters, too.
