San Antonio joined other cities Saturday night in rallying for the arrest of the Minneapolis Police Department officers in connection to the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died while in police custody. Before most business owners arrived to check on their storefronts Sunday morning, volunteers had already arrived to clean up the streets of their grieving city.
12:00 a.m. | Police Chief William McManus held a midnight press conference, during which he told reporters that three arrests were made and three officers were injured, including two who were hit on the head with bottles. One was treated on the scene by emergency medical services, the other was transported out. The third officer was hit on the knee by a brick.
Protestors were throwing rocks and bottles at cars and police officers, McManu said. No one was hurt by police. We did throw gas when it was time to disburse." He also said officers fired pepper balls, tear gas and one rubber bullet.
8:30 p.m. | Police formed a blockade between a group of armed members of Texas Freedom Force, a conservative group who consider themselves defenders of the Alamo, and the Black Lives Matter protesters. One row of police used their bikes to separate the groups, a second row held brown batons in their hands. The Alamo defenders carried machine-style rifles.

Total bullshit that the city is grieving the death in MN. Total.
I think I just caught hep C from looking at that picture.
Is this a new weapon, or the new name-calling from the Left?
Or just typical high-school-newspaper journalism?
what is a machine-style rifle?
Notice the scrawny punk is acting out like a little fatherless toddler? While the real dudes in the back with the guns are just standing there stone face and quiet.
Are there any citizen defenders around the White House?
Or anywhere else for that matter.
Where are the Patriots?
Hope the lions dont catch anything from him.
Forty years of many (most?) schools teaching that America is an oppressor nation has left us with two generations who believe it.
If they do decide to act, I wouldnt want to be there in the middle of it.
The Alamo is a Texas shrine. Woe to whomever tries to desecrate it. These fairie have no idea how close they were to the abyss here. Better they go back to their UT Texas hive and waive their faggy fists.
"The Alamo defenders carried machine-style rifles."
The three "professional journalists" who wrote this are all * idiots.
With college degrees, no doubt.
“While the real dudes in the back with the guns are just standing there stone face and quiet.”
In illannoy the guys in back would be the ones arrested.
Yes, he looks like a little brat having a temper tantrum. He needs the same medicine - a good beating!
How many cops murdered since the last Antifa riots? No one rioted to protest them. Violent protesters need a lead reminder of that.
Millie Weaver brought out great points yesterday revealing how the Deep State is behind this. There are eye-witness accounts of “clean-cut, military-looking men” amidst the chaos agitating destruction.
“Are there any citizen defenders around the White House?
Or anywhere else for that matter.
Where are the Patriots?”
You don’t want to be anywhere near there if the authorities made their move. Besides, if you shoot, you will be shot. Doesn’t matter if you are a defender or not.
Notice that antifa is smart enough not to use guns. For now.
But last night was the last straw. Bet on it.
Word of advice to any site defenders out there. You *need* to be wearing a mask, even if as in this case the authorities are supporting you (but *especially* if they do not.) Not for COVID reasons (though if asked, that’s what you should attribute it to), but because BLM and AntiFa and others will be taking long-lens photos and video of you and will attempt to find out who you are from it. Facial recognition software is a thing, social media identification is a thing. You will then be doxxed, pressure will be brought to bear against you, your family, your job, your house, anything you value.
Save yourself a lot of trouble. Wear a mask or face covering helmet.
There, fixed that title. They're terrorists and not protesters. Protesters do not destroy and kill.
