Today marks the second day of the riots in Dallas, Texas, and minutes ago a man was beaten into critical condition.
A man appeared to be defending a shop with a large sword.
As looters ran at him, he then charged them (the rioters), and the looters overtook him.
The video below is graphic.
Elijah Schaffer of Blaze TV posted the video and wrote, “BREAKING: man critically injured at Dallas riots. It appears he attempted to defend a shop with a large sword. Looters ran at him, then he charged rioters. They then beat him with a skateboard and stoned him with medium sized rocks. I called an Ambulance and it’s on the way.”
The person filming called an ambulance shortly after.
He also posted this picture, saying the man was being tended to by “volunteer medics.”
The page continued, “Some people were concerned. Others laughed at him. And many more continued to loot high end stores around him while he bled out on the assault.”
In another post, he wrote, “It’s getting too risky out here. Ive never said this at a protest. This is a riot. This is different. Police are nowhere to be seen. Rioters are cracking open ATMs now. Destroying everything they can. Absolute lawlessness. The city of Dallas mourns as it falls apart tonight.”
Jack Posobiec has this to say about the video:
Meanwhile, Ali stated that it was time to give everyone “15 minutes to disappear.”
Mr. Schaffer‘s most recent update states, “BREAKING: Police have lost control of downtown Dallas. Armed militia are now coming to help protect businesses. And bring order to the city. Many more are on their way. Real Americans are refusing to see their city fall to criminals. This is the America I remember.”
Hopefully, we will see a deescalation of the situation as more help arrives.

Cassandra Jaramillo tweeted, “DPD source tells me man who was seen getting attacked in a graphic viral video by a group of protesters is in bad shape, but hanging on. His body was literally twisted from getting stomped on and kicked. Happened near House of Blues. Working to get more info.”
She then continues the Twitter thread with more information, “Dallas Police spokesman tells me the victim of the attack is in stable condition and was transported to a hospital. Police say at this time they can not confirm he was defending a business being looted. His identity has not been released at this time.”
BREAKING UPDATE 11:23PM
Elijah has just released the entire video on his Twitter stating, “Full unedited video for editorial requests. Please attribute to Elijah Schaffer of Blaze TV. I cannot confirm he was the store owner, but I pulled out my camera when I saw him appearing to defend a store, then he was rushed, then made the move that might have cost him his life.”
Who instigated the situation?
