Police: White Supremacists Instigated Richmond Riots Disguised As BLM
White supremacists allegedly instigated riots while posing as members of Black Lives Matter in downtown Richmond, Virginia over the weekend, according to WSLS-TV.
- The rioters tore down police tape and marched towards the police headquarters, which is where they set a dump truck on fire.
- Six people were arrested after the police called the event “unlawful assembly” and deployed tear gas.
- Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said:
“Their mission is simple, not the Richmond we know.”
- Stoney also “thanked the Black Lives Matter protesters he said tried to stop the white supremacists from spearheading the violence,” according to the report.
