Skip to comments.Boston Police Caught With Truck Full of Bricks; Are They 'Planting' Them to Incite Violence?
Posted on 06/02/2020 9:45:09 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The anger over George Floyd's death has led to protests across the country and the situation is worsening by the day. While some are protesting peacefully, others have resorted to violence, looting and vandalism to rebel against the law enforcement after Floyd was killed in custody when a Minneapolis police officer pinned him down with his knee over his neck last week.
A state of emergency has been declared in several states and the National Guard has stepped in to deal with the intensifying unrest. However, a new video clip has started circulating on social media suggesting that law enforcement might be inciting violence by leaving bricks on the street for protestors to use and damage property.
Boston Police Truck Filled With Bricks
A video clip, shared by a Twitter user named Alexander Parker, shows two Boston Police officers unloading bricks from their truck inside what appears to be an alleyway as they carefully place them on a brick pallet on the right-side of the vehicle. The truck's bed is filled to the brim with hundreds of bricks.
The person recording the video points out that the bricks could be for undercover police officers or agent provocateurs that are getting involved in the protests to encourage violence so that police have an "excuse to beat the s**t out of them."
The video has garnered more than 350,000 views and racked up hundreds of comments with many claiming the police are "planting" bricks at protest sites and streets, which they claim is a tactic used to turn peaceful protests violent and justify the use of excessive force on rioters.

wait. full stop. you think that the boston police department is conspiring with antifa in inciting riots?
These stories keep popping up. Where is Faux News to explain them away?
Sounds more like they’re trying to HELP the rioters destroy their city. Probably on orders from the mayor.
I don’t know what to think anymore.
Accusations are flying left and right, one against each other.
A group of protesters in Dallas called attention to the unexpected appearance of the construction material near the city’s courthouse over the weekend in a video shared on social media. “Ain’t no damn construction around here!,” one of the protesters says in the clip as a stack of bricks can be seen on the sidewalk.
First, could we have some Boston residents validate that roof numbers are painted on their police vehicles?
Second, I think this was packaged video....fake Boston cops, fake vehicle, and done probably before the riots started. Maybe I’m wrong, but I just can’t see real cops getting deep into a mess like this.
Maybe-—Just maybe the police confiscated the bricks and brought back to their stations as evidence in an investigation?
I call BS on this one.
Unless someone can establish that the Boston police have a black pickup numbered 1400 — and that this is actually it.
I don’t even see anyone handling bricks in that video.
What a bunch of virtue signaling crap. If I still wore a uniform and was asked to ‘kneel’, I’d spit on who ever asked for such nonsense and walk away.
So, just because a brick is there, a protester is not responsible for hurling the brick at people or businesses?
I ran across a comment on a twitter thread where someone speculated that this antifa thing has been going on for a long time and just as they have infiltrated these protests, they long ago, as part of the plan, infiltrated the police departments.
I never thought of that but it does make a lot of sense.
And here we see evidence of that.
Yea that's the ticket.
Its in the back of their police station. They gathered the bricks from the streets and have put them in a secure location. Nothing more nothing less.
I don’t know what I see in that video.
RE: So, just because a brick is there, a protester is not responsible for hurling the brick at people or businesses?
If the bricks were not meant for construction, then someone placed them there to make it easy for agitators to start the riots. WHO THAT SOMEONE IS NEEDS TO BE WEEDED OUT.
