A video published to social media on Tuesday appears to show Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters attacking a man in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as he tried to defend a charitable association with a fire extinguisher.
In the video, the man can be seen at the entrance to Danish Brotherhood Lodge 14 — a charitable society that was set on fire by rioters on Monday — with a fire extinguisher, which he then uses to spray at rioters in an attempt to drive them away from the building.
As the man sprays rioters — who are actively looting — with the fire extinguisher, he is then punched in the head from behind from another individual, causing him to fall to the ground, bleeding from the head.
“Dude I’m gonna help this guy, I don’t give a f*ck if I get beat up,” says the individual who is recording the incident.
“Looters assault an older business owner trying to defend his business in Kenosha, Wisconsin on August 24, 2020,” read the caption of the video posted to Twitter on Tuesday.

In the next clip, it appears that Good Samaritans have arrived on the scene to assist the man while a crowd has formed around them.
The violence that ensued across Kenosha was triggered by an incident on Sunday in which police officers shot Jacob Blake seven times from behind as he allegedly refused a lawful order to stop and allegedly attempted to gain entry to a vehicle.
