This thread is dedicated solely to Berlinda Nibo, the victim of the ‘Stop the Steal’ assault

In my previous thread I had mistakenly said it was from the Capitol Riots bc it happened on the same day; but I did correct it in another tweet

Here is the video:
Nibo was on her way to a late breakfast with a friend in downtown LA. when they stumbled on the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally in front of City Hall. As she tried to walk past, people began to break away from the crowd & follow her. They asked her if she voted for Trump.
The crowd started getting closer and accused her of hitting someone. They began yelling out racial slurs and chanting “White Lives Matter”. She was then shoved from behind. Another man knocked her phone out of her hand, scratching her face in the process.
Then a woman reached up and grabbed her wig

In this video you can here someone yell “I did that. I did the first scalping of the new civil war!”
After that they began to beat her and pepper spray her.

Roy Ball was already part of the crowd yelling racial slurs at her. He then picks her up and grabs her from behind with her arms pinned down. As he’s holding her he begins whispering in her ear “Don’t move they’re trying to kill you.”

She then gets pepper sprayed again.
After the assault she was interviewed and states that Roy was trying to help her out. She said this before seeing any of the videos from the day.

In reality it was two bystanders who pulled her out and walked her to safety.
After watching footage she realized she made a mistake about who helped her because she couldn’t see at the time after being maced a few times.

She has been trying to retract the statement of Roy trying to help her from her first interviews without any luck.
And for all those who were concerned about him losing his job because of this, he was fired days before the protest.

Roy is not a hero.

This is who he is:
Here is Berlinda Nibos Gofundme with updated info on the assault as well as a buzzfeed article with an interview she gave after watching the videos.…
