This is not surprising to medics anywhere. Cops intentionally target protest medics (often before anyone else) because, in their minds, if a medic can treat 20 protestors, taking out one medic is like taking out 20 protestors. They deliberately target us so we can’t help people.
I’m hearing more reports from street medic friends that cops continue to target medics, & I continue to see video of proof of the same.

I am going to compile reports I find on Twitter in a thread. If you find a report, please DM it to me. #streetmedic #protest #BlackLivesMatter

Je viens de finir la lecture de Little Rock, 1957 de @thomassnegaroff . Un ouvrage prenant, sur le refus de la déségrégation des lycées dans les États du Sud des USA, et l'entrée courageuse des 9 premiers élèves noirs dans un lycée alors réservé aux élèves blancs. /1
Une entrée maintes fois repoussée. Une entrée par la petite porte face à une foule ségrégationniste hostile. Une entrée sous les insultes, les crachats, les coups. Une rentrée scolaire encadrée par l'armée. /2
(Les 3 photographies sont de Will Counts et datent du 4 septembre 1957. La scène et la première photographie sont expliquées par T. Snegaroff dans ce thread) /3

Something that surprised me was how comfortable the #LittleRock police were around these guys. The cops made them all confirm that they were carrying unloaded, but didn’t make them place it on ground to check etc.
Like this is is a selective screenshot from the video before. I understand it was momentary, but this guy inadvertently pointed a gun at a cop and nobody said anything about it.

This in contrast to police shootings over phones or “reaching” for nothing, etc.
Here are some of the #Antifa counter-demonstrators that showed up. There were probably 3-4x as many counter-demonstrators as the white nationalists, and as many cops as both sides combined.

A big theme for antifa was #ICE, who they see as the enforcement arm of a nazi agenda.
