Some of you may already know what can happen if you run around pointing guns at people in their cars in Texas.
One man, however, did not know.
He was determined to find out.
A driver was detained after he allegedly shot and killed a man after driving through a protest in downtown Austin on Saturday evening, police said.
According to multiple witnesses, the incident began when the driver honked at protesters, then sped down Congress Avenue and drove through the crowd, the Austin American-Statesman reported. The driver then appeared to hit an orange barrier and come to a stop.
Multiple armed protesters approached the car, at which point the driver fired several shots before speeding away, witnesses said. They added that several of the protesters returned fire as the driver made his escape, with police confirming at least three people opened fire. Garrett Foster, 28, was shot and killed.
The unnamed driver said he shot at Foster because the protester had pointed his rifle toward him.
In cases like these, we must keep in mind those who truly suffer.
Not just the guy who will have to figure out if the Texas police will forever ruin his life for this brave act of self-defense.
No, the real victim here is the dead man’s black girlfriend, who will now have to find another white man to jeopardize her melanin.
Because she sure as hell isn’t going to find a black man willing to push her wheelchair around.
She is far from the only Person of Color to suffer from this Black Riot Agenda.
They have also begun shooting themselves by accident.
The self-shooting incident was perpetrated by NFAC, the “Not F***ing Around Coalition.”
Several people have observed that, contrary to protocol, someone was f***ing around.
At a rally by the black-only ‘Not F**king Around Coalition’ (NFAC) in Louisville, Kentucky, gunshots rang out and two people were wheeled off by medics.Early reports suggest one of the militia members shot himself by accident.
An all-black militia whose leader says he believes in violence to further the black cause, the NFAC gathered in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday in full battle dress. Numbering more than a hundred, according to local reports, they demanded that the killers of Breonna Taylor – three police officers – be criminally charged.
There to meet them were the ‘Three Percenters’, a right-wing militia whose membership is mostly white. Police formed a line between the two groups.
When gunshots rang out over Baxter Park, however, they weren’t the first shots in a racial confrontation. Instead, they were accidental, and medics arrived moments later to wheel away two victims, reportedly NFAC members.

According to witnesses who described the scene on Twitter, an NFAC member accidentally fired his weapon, possibly injuring himself in the process. Police later said that three people were hit when the gun went off. In one live stream from the event, a woman could be heard off camera muttering: “This is f**king embarrassing.”
Yes, off camera woman.
Yes, it is.
It is not, however, the only embarrassing act of violence to occur in this weekend of clueless, disgusting manchildren playing with firearms.
There is another.
Two people were injured in a chaotic incident when an armed protester attempted to fire at a car as it drove through a demonstration on I-225 highway in Colorado, but ended up missing and shooting another participant in the leg.
Several hundred people obstructed the busy road on Saturday afternoon as they marched in memory of 23-year-old local black man Elijah McClain, who was killed by police last year. As the police were trying to reroute traffic, one jeep surged through the crowd.

“While the protestors were walking on I-225, a vehicle decided to drive through the crowd. A protestor decided to fire off a weapon, striking at least 1 other protestor,” Aurora Police Department police wrote in a tweet.
On the one hand, we should be seriously concerned that America is turning into a third world country, where people driving around in their cars have to exchange gunfire with violent mobs.
This will very rapidly turn into a situation where the people who are f***ing around give up and go home, or learn basic video game tactics, and they start shooting us, instead of just getting shot and shooting each other.
That will not be funny.
But, for now, we are in the beginning phase, where there are a lot of people trying to do something they don’t know how to do. And we do still have to find whatever joy we can, in these dark times.
So be amused, if you can. It is funny, for now.
