This outrageous clip of protesters laughing and celebrating after several police officers were killed in Dallas, Texas has emerged. In the wake of the deadly shooting, which claimed five officers’ lives and wounded several others, the protesters appear ecstatic.
The clip shows a crowd of dozens gathered in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven that is normally open 24 hours a day but had been closed by management around midnight. Police can be seen forming a line in an apparent attempt to keep the unruly mob from entering the store, as several nearby businesses reported looters on the loose.
The crowd continued to grow agitated, with many of the protesters openly drinking and pouring alcohol on parked cars. Several men can be seen making what appear to be gang signs while shouting taunts and dancing triumphantly.
Earlier in the night, Black Lives Matter staged a demonstration throughout the streets of downtown Dallas to protest the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two black men who were killed by police. It has been reported that some of the people in the above video are members of Black Lives Matter.
