CBC Radio One's World Report claims that the Louisville, Kentucky riots started as "peaceful protests," despite clear evidence showing otherwise.
A transcript reads: "Shots were fired in Louisville, Kentucky overnight during what began as a peaceful protest."
While earlier protests in the US may have started as peaceful marches, the riot in Louisville appears to have been orchestrated. Video evidence has appeared online showing soon-to-be rioters unloading pre-made anarchist banners and riot shields.
Protests did not start off as peaceful, as garbage cans were lit ablaze and anarchists destroyed property.
The shields taken from the U-Haul were then used on the front lines of a protest march, all but confirming that the street actions taking place in America are not as the media has portrayed, spontaneous acts of protest but in fact, well-funded and organized actions.
More evidence of this has since been unearthed, as National File reported today Holly Zoller of the Bail Project, a left wing activist group that has paid the bail of over 12,000 incarcerated peoples, rented the U-Haul days before the riot occurred.
