U.S. Congressional candidate from Pennsylvania Teddy Daniels has tweeted earlier today, “Can somebody find this man please???? He gets a bottle of aged bourbon… on me!!!!!”. The tweet also included a retweet with a video of a man confronting BLM who was blocking traffic in Plano, Texas.
The police in the video are not addressing the people blocking traffic, but do approach the man who just wants the road cleared so he can be on his way.
The protest took place on May 2nd, Newsweek claims the protest was to “honor the life of Marvin Scott III, a 26-year-old Black man who died in March while in police custody at a Texas jail.” In the video you see the man confront those blocking traffic. The man is visibly upset and heads straight for the police officer. The man demands that the police get the people out of the way.
The officer seems to be trying to calm the man down while ignoring the crowd blocking traffic. The crowd starts to head towards the man. The police officer then steps in between the man and the crowd. The officer starts walking the man back away from the crowd. A woman in an SUV opens her door and starts flailing her hands angrily toward the man who confronted the police officer about the crowd.
The officer continues to walk the man back, while members of the crowd who appear to be some sort of leadership for the crowd direct the crowd away from the man. The police officer and the man continue to talk while the crowd starts to yell “Black Lives Matter!”
