BLM Clash With Diners Near Kentucky Derby

Over the weekend, BLM in Louisville, Kentucky went to protest around the 147th Kentucky Derby. They were apparently chanting things like, “No Justice, No Derby,” according to BizPac Review. But they weren’t able to do anything to stop the Derby, which went off without a hitch.

According to BizPac Review, they were even involved in renting a plane, along with some other groups, to fly over Churchill Downs with the message, “Protect Black Women. Divest from Police.” Do they even know how many black women have been helped or protected by the police? Guessing they don’t care because it doesn’t play to their narrative.

While BLM were out, they apparently were doing their “let’s go bother diners while they’re eating” thing. We’ve seen this tactic with BLM before, where they go up to diners who are eating outdoors and start lecturing and harassing them.

But this particular effort didn’t end well for them.

The group was outside La Chasse, a restaurant not far from the racetrack.

We’re not sure of what started the interaction with an older diner but what caused them to back off was him pulling a gun, in a very tense standoff.

Some of the BLM folks were armed, too. You see one woman trying to wave the BLM folks back from the man, yelling, “No, no, no.” She was armed. There were also two men who were armed. The BLM folks were also getting in the face of another diner, as well. Fortunately, it appears the interaction ended with people getting the diners inside.

At some point, the police also chased and arrested three of them.

They screamed, “F**k 12!” which is code for saying “screw with the police.” Others encouraged those being arrested to make it as difficult as possible for the police to take them in. Then they complained about how the police were treating them.

Merrick Garland’s DOJ is now going to be investigating the Louisville police and their practices, according to BizPac.

“The investigation will assess whether LMPD engages in discriminatory policing, and also whether it conducts unreasonable stops, searches, seizures, and arrests, both during patrol activities and in obtaining and executing search warrants for private homes,” the DOJ said in a press release.
