FBI Asks For Evidence Of Individuals Inciting Violence During Protests, People Respond With Photos Of Trump And Videos Of Police Violence



The FBI on Monday took to social media to request photos and videos of individuals provoking violence during the nationwide peaceful demonstrations over the killing of George Floyd last week. But many on Twitter quickly began sharing photos of Donald Trump and video clips of police cracking down violently on protesters.

“The FBI is seeking information and digital media depicting individuals inciting violence during First Amendment protected peaceful demonstrations,” the FBI wrote on its Twitter account. The post included a link to get more information on the bureau’s website.

“To help us identify actors who are actively instigating violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death, the FBI is accepting tips and digital media depicting violent encounters surrounding the civil unrest that is happening throughout the country,” the webpage explained. “If you witness or have witnessed unlawful violent actions, we urge you to submit any information, photos, or videos that could be relevant to the case.”

While it appeared that the bureau was looking for information on violent protesters and outside agitators taking advantage of the demonstrations, social media users thought that the FBI should be scrutinizing President Donald Trump and the police as well.

Representative Karen Bass, a Democrat from California, shared a photo of Donald Trump, suggesting the FBI investigate his actions. “Found one,” Bass wrote in her Twitter post.
