Black Lives Matter Protesters Attack Motorist For Having The Nerve To Be On The Road That They Were Blocking
Bloomington, Indiana – A group of entitled college Black Lives Matter protesters stood in the middle of the road Monday evening, and then attacked a car which tried to creep through the protest. Some news outlets then reported that the car “disrupted” their protest by driving in the road.
The group known as Students Against State Violence from Indiana University started a Black Lives Matter march. The event began with some speakers, followed by a march through town.
When the protesters approached the intersection, they unlawfully entered the roadway causing traffic delays. One motorist, 21-year-old IU student Ryan Davis, had to come to a complete stop while protesters stood in the middle of the lane shouting at him.
The incident was captured on video by Andrew Biller, an IU student and reporter for IU Student Television. Biller posted the video to social media.

Davis can be seen pleading with the protesters asking for them to allow him to pass. When they refused to move, Davis then honked the horn, and began slowly creeping his white SUV in their direction.
The protesters then flung themselves over the hood, and began beating the vehicle. The windshield could be seen shattered in the video as well as a mirror that had been ripped off the side of the vehicle. It appears that Davis himself was also assaulted by the “protesters.”
Biller described Davis’ pleas to the protesters saying, “He was like, ‘Listen, I support Black Lives Matter, I support you guys, I just want to get home, I just want to get through here’. Then, he laid on his horn for a solid few seconds and then just put his foot on the gas.”
Bloomington Police Captain Steve Kellams said, “He had been confronted by several (protesters) he had asked them to move and when they didn’t do so, they began beating on his SUV and they broke the window and tore the side mirror off of his car.”
Captain Kelly’s also said, “We were monitoring the entire event. There were traffic disruptions for about 30-45 minutes.” He also noted that there was never a moment in which anyone’s life was in serious danger.
It may seem obvious to point out that standing in the middle of the road is a really bad idea; it also violates Indiana State Law.
While the irresponsible news outlets reported on the motorist “disrupting” the Black Lives Matter protest, police have clarified who the victim was in this incident, and it wasn’t the Black Lives Matter protesters.
