A peaceful Black Lives Matter Protest in Texas got heated when an angry white man started to attack protesters. The incident was said to have occurred in Frisco, Texas over the weekend after demonstrators stopped traffic while protesting the death of Marvin Scott III, whose death was ruled by the medical examiner “a homicide during restraint struggle with law enforcement.”
Video posted online shows the white man charging against the protesters, yelling in the street before he approaches a Plano police officer and demands action.
“Get these fucking people out of the way!” the man shouts at the officer before turning to take a swing at a protester.
The man can then be seen putting his hand on a legal observer while threatening to punch him as the officer on the scene then asks the man to leave.
“Get them out of here!” the angry man demands before being allowed to walk away.
Organizers called for answers from the Plano Police Department.
“The officer witnessed this man’s aggression, saw him smack a protestor’s phone/hand, saw him shove another (Lee Merritt in red shirt), and is confronting him while man is cocked and ready to throw yet another punch,” one of the organizers explained on Twitter. “Notice how many times the officer’s hands go near his taser or weapon………zero. This man towered over the officer. Why wasn’t he ever afraid? Why didn’t he immediately feel the need to control him?”
