Garret Foster an Antifa rioter was shot dead at a protest in Austin, Texas, he was armed with an AK-47 rifle, and told a local reporter that opponents of Black Lives Matter are p**sies. His death set off a partisan blame game online.
The victim, was taken to hospital with critical, life-threatening injuries late on Saturday evening, where he died shortly afterward. A police spokeswoman said he was attending a Black Lives Matter protest in the city, and may have approached a passing car while brandishing a rifle.
The driver, who shot the victim from inside his vehicle, was taken into custody by police. On Sunday night Austin police released the driver who shot Garrett Foster.
Dallas News reported:
AUSTIN Police have released the driver who allegedly killed an armed protester Saturday night in downtown Austin, while they investigate what led to the fatal shooting.
Austin Police Chief Brian Manley identified the man who was shot as Garrett Foster.
Foster was attending the protest against police violence and had been pushing the wheelchair of his fiancée, Whitney Mitchell, 28, who is a quadruple amputee. The couple, who met in North Texas as teenagers, moved to Austin a couple of years ago and had attended protests in recent weeks, their mothers told The Dallas Morning News.
Austin police are investigating what occurred between Foster, who they said was carrying an AK-47-style rifle during the protest, and the driver, who called police to report that hed shot someone
Witnesses reported that just before 10 p.m. Saturday, a car turned down the street toward the protesters and the driver started honking its horn. The vehicle stopped in the roadway, police said, and Foster approached the drivers side window as others began striking the car. The driver then opened fire, striking Foster.
Manley said at a news conference Sunday that the driver reported Foster pointed his weapon at them before the shooting. KVUE-TV reported that police have said Foster did not discharge his weapon, but the chief did say someone else in the crowd did return fire as the car left the scene.
The Austin Police Department has not yet stated in detail how they believe the incident played out, but did note that two people opened fire. They added that the suspect is cooperating with their investigation.
The information that the Foster first pointed his gun was reported by Ray Pearson from Red State Nation.

Garrett Foster, the Black Lives Matter protester who was fatally shot by a motorist in Austin on Saturday night was caught on camera saying that the people who hate us are too big of p-ssies to actually do anything about it when asked why he was carrying a rifle.
They dont let us march in the streets anymore, so I got to practice some of our rights, he responded.
The interview then asked if he felt like he would need to use it.
Nah, he responded. I mean, if I use it against the cops Im dead. I think all the people that hate us and want to say shit to us are too big of p-ssies to stop and actually do anything about it.
In the interview, he confirmed that he was carrying the famous communist weapon AK-47! Video below:
Thats the root of things right there. If I am armed and the other person is armed and they point their barrel at me they will be shot, I will operate on the assumption they plan to use it or they wouldnt be pointing it at me. Want to warn someone or get their attention? Point it up and fire into the air. Want to get shot? Point it at someone and dont use it.
if you point your rifle at someone and that person shoots you, you’re not a ‘victim’, you’re a casualty
Fire it in the air? Are you crazy? Just where do you think that bullet is going to end it? Think it just vaporizes?
He was a ginger, and thus had no soul.
Unfortunately, he used to be an Airman.
Fatal assumption, Sparky.
Gee. Garrett Foster sure was a badass, until he got himself killed.
Police have released the driver who allegedly killed an armed protester>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Anyone armed at a protest is not a protestor, they are a fighter , ready to kill. That’s not “protest.”
The “protester” pointed his AK-47 at a car, and the driver dispatched him promptly, as he had a right to do.
(Of course I don't know what was actually used; It's just fun to say.)
Trash site reporting
Complete garbage clickbait headline, driver was released, investigation still ongoing, nothing determined
In other words, about average for anything from ‘USAConservative’.
That is not true at all. Remember this image from my home state's capital back in April?
That, along with his picture in uniform as a wholesome child, shows that he was simply a caring, sensitive young man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time when those evil right-wing white supremacists attacked...
There, fixed it
It's not so much what you don't know that will get you in trouble, it's what you know that ain't so.

He should demand a Grand Jury for a No Bill.
In this case, a CORPSEman.
Wonder why Mom refers to her as a fiance’.
No chance he will marry her if they think that it will hurt their disability payments.
Wonder if Ms. Mitchell will try to collect on his military death benefits ...
Clearly not a student of Tuco
Everyone’s weapon is either holstered or held pointing down.
Remember the famous words of Tuco, “If you’re gonna shoot, shoot, don’t talk”.
