Heavily armed protesters gather to protect Black Lives Matter demonstrators holding rally in Austin

Austin police are bracing for chaos as heavily-armed activists from rival groups face off in the city one week after a protester was shot dead.
On Saturday evening, a group of gun-toting men were seen protecting left-wing demonstrators at a makeshift memorial for Garrett Foster - the 28-year-old who was killed during a BLM march in Austin last weekend.
Across the street, camouflage clad members of the far-right paramilitary group Three Percenters stood watching on, brandishing semiautomatic weapons in an intimidating manner.
Members of another far-right group - Boogaloo Boys - were also spotted cutting an imposing figure at the memorial.
Police have bolstered their forces amid fears that tensions between the two groups could explode.

The Austin Police Department released a statement saying they have called in extra cops to help protect both people and property should things go awry.
'We are bringing in the necessary staff, and have partnered with other local law enforcement agencies as we have done throughout the past few months, to allow for those peacefully and lawfully practicing their first amendment rights while also working to prevent any violence or destruction of property,' a statement from the Department read.
Those paying tribute to Foster linked up with a separate rally to 'amplify Black Austin voices and demand defunding of the Austin Police Department' which moved through the city.
In a video shared to Twitter by , officers on horseback and bicycles were seen controlling crowds shortly before sundown as they moved down the street.
Some protesters started to clash with cops, spooking the horses and causing a commotion.
'F**k you!' several activists were seen yelling at the officers, as those on bikes rode in quickly to assist.
Meanwhile, police issued a warning to locals living in the downtown area to be 'on guard' amid rumors activists could break into high-rise residential buildings and stage rallies from rooftops.
Two police helicopters were reported to be circling over the city at 8pm.
While there was no reports of violence early in the evening, cops and protesters did clash at Foster's memorial site. In a Twitter video, one activist was heard yelling in a megaphone that cops were 'f**king pigs', as some agitators became involved in a scuffle with officers.
After sundown, a wall of police officers with shields were seen forming a protective barrier in the city's downtown.

Austin is on high-alert following the shocking slaying of Foster at the BLM march last Saturday night.
Army Sergeant Daniel Perry, 33, opened fire on Foster after driving into a crowd of demonstrators.
Perry claims he came across the protest by accident while working as a ride share driver, and that he only opened fire in 'self defense' after Foster allegedly waved his AK-47 at him.
A memorial was quickly established in the city complete with flowers, candles and tributes. However, the memorial was damaged by a right-wing activist who claimed Foster was a 'terrorist' who was 'rightfully and legally euthanized'.
The vandalism has further fueled tensions in the city.

On Saturday night, July 25, Sergeant Daniel Perry allegedly drove into a crowd of 100 Black Lives Matter protesters marching through the city.
Perry claims he came across the protest by accident while working as a ride share driver, and suddenly felt threatened amid the large crowd.
Garrett Foster - who was marching with his disabled fiancée Whitney Mitchell - was armed with an AK-47.
According to Perry, Foster began waving the weapon in his direction, causing him to pull out his own gun and shoot Foster in self-defense.
Foster, 28, a former US Air Force mechanic, was shot three times and later died in his hospital from injuries.

Hmm, maybe they are at a different multnomah sherriff office. The one out on 122nd and Burnside is where the CHL permits are handled. I am not sure where this SE facility is. Being Portland, they could likely burn that neighborhood down before they ran into an armed civilian like moi.Oops, wrong city. Time for bed, I guess.

A lot of teachers out there I reckon. As long as school is out, they have plenty of time to riot. As long as people aren't working, or have to work, they have plenty of time to riot.This guy is streaming live from austin now
Thank you. We pride ourselves on pleasing the Alpha.Very impressive and effective.
Those horses need armor.I think the not so peaceful protesters are finding out the rule change outside the confines of Portland, Seattle and other progressive enclaves.
The fun and games are over when you're face to chest with a Percheron or Clydesdale. Doubt many of those citified protesters have ever been up close and personal with a ton of workhorse.
Austin Police on horsebacks breaking up BLM & Antifa crowds occupying intersection
•Aug 1, 2020
Austin, Texas: Mounted police broke up crowds of Black Lives Matter (and Antifa) failing to follow orders to disperse occupied intersection. The rioting crowd chanting ‘Take it to the streets, F*ck the Police’ went back several times throughout the night. Large number of State Troopers assisted in policing. The BLM narrative “mounted police trampling down peaceful protesters” (Candice Bernd).

You are much more easy going with how you would have them treated.The more I see these aggressive 'protestors' and listen to their foul mouthed chants the more I want them all arrested and held without bail while awaiting prosecution for sedition. Despite all of their claims of noble causes in the end they are nothing more that communist revolutionaries attempting to use mob violence to overthrow the various governments that stand between them and their beloved dictatorship.
governors are limited in most states - they need that all necessary request from the mayor of the city - they can stage troops - send troopers in for state law enforcement - take certain steps when road closures are concerned >>> it's not they have supreme powerAbsolutely NOTHING to do with Trump. Everything to do with the idiot governors and mayors of these states and cities.
Just like herding cattle.One year during college, several of us met in NYC to do St. Patrick's day. It was as you would expect a liquor driven affair... At some point while in Manhatten, the police needed to clear a square.
They used PA's and told the people to clear the streets, at which point, we actively moved away from the large group and square.
As we were moving away, a number of mounted policemen moved in and used their mounts to "encourage" the folks there to move. I will never forget seeing them turn those horses sideways and start walking them at the crowd, which did move and pretty damned quickly.
Very impressive and effective.
Oh, so you mean they are limited by the constitution and local laws. Kinda like Trump who gets trashed for everything that happens and has to listen to ignorant people saying he should go in with storm troopers and shut it all downgovernors are limited in most states - they need that all necessary request from the mayor of the city - they can stage troops - send troopers in for state law enforcement - take certain steps when road closures are concerned >>> it's not they have supreme power
been in just about every US city of all sizes >> you obviously haven't been thru LA, NYC or some of the older East Coast cities - 10X worse daily than Chicago on it's worse - there's actually two daily rush hours in the city with predictable in & out flow - LA is just about 24 hours a day and NYC isn't much better going between burroughs and using bridges ....I drove it Friday just a little slow down, go to Chicago if you want to see a real traffic jam.
Boston is scary. It's FAST driving, and if you can't keep up with it or the constant weaving in and out, then you're screwed.been in just about every US city of all sizes >> you obviously haven't been thru LA, NYC or some of the older East Coast cities - 10X worse daily than Chicago on it's worse - there's actually two daily rush hours in the city with predictable in & out flow - LA is just about 24 hours a day and NYC isn't much better going between burroughs and using bridges ....

Law enforcement were deployed and ready downtown. According to a source familiar with Saturday’s events, no officers were injured. Little force was used in shutting down the protest — which illegally blocked streets and was intended to bring violence to Austin. No property was damaged despite the protesters’ plan. They did take roads illegally, briefly including Interstate 35, the main highway that runs through downtown Austin. Protesters harassed innocent diners and others downtown.
Many of the protesters were carrying rifles. Their illegal blocking of roads prompted the black driver in the top tweet to confront them directly.
They got out of his way. But not before cameras could capture them for identification.
The protesters hopefully learned two lessons.
