A man was killed in downtown Austin Saturday night in the midst of a protest against police violence, and police said they have taken the shooter into custody.
The shooting happened about 9:50 p.m. at Fourth Street and Congress Avenue, EMS officials said. Austin police said the male victim was carrying a weapon when he approached a vehicle. The person in the vehicle then shot the man.
Video of the shooting below:
The mainstream media falsely portraited the victim as an innocent man who got shot!
Witnesses say that the victim fired 5 shots with his AK-47 before he was shot dead but that’s not confirmed by the police yet.
He fired five shots into the car with his AK-47 before the driver fired back and killed him. You are a very sick person.

Garrett Foster, the Black Lives Matter protester who was fatally shot by a motorist in Austin on Saturday night was caught on camera saying that the “people who hate us” are “too big of p-ssies to actually do anything about it” when asked why he was carrying a rifle.
“They don’t let us march in the streets anymore, so I got to practice some of our rights,” he responded.
The interview then asked if he felt like he would need to use it.
“Nah,” he responded. “I mean, if I use it against the cops I’m dead. I think all the people that hate us and want to say shit to us are too big of p-ssies to stop and actually do anything about it.”
In the interview, he confirmed that he was carrying the famous communist weapon AK-47!

All these protesters have no idea that if they achieve their stated goal, that protests like the one they are participating in will not be tolerated by the totalitarian rulers they help usher into power. The utopia they believe will magically happen is a myth as evidenced by any and all previous examples throughout all of recorded history. Maybe if they were taught actual history they would understand this, but I doubt it.
On Sunday night Austin police released the driver who shot Garrett Foster.
The Conservative US reported:
AUSTIN — Police have released the driver who allegedly killed an armed protester Saturday night in downtown Austin, while they investigate what led to the fatal shooting.
Austin Police Chief Brian Manley identified the man who was shot as Garrett Foster.
Foster was attending the protest against police violence and had been pushing the wheelchair of his fiancée, Whitney Mitchell, 28, who is a quadruple amputee. The couple, who met in North Texas as teenagers, moved to Austin a couple of years ago and had attended protests in recent weeks, their mothers told The Dallas Morning News.
Austin police are investigating what occurred between Foster, who they said was carrying an AK-47-style rifle during the protest, and the driver, who called police to report that he’d shot someone…
… Witnesses reported that just before 10 p.m. Saturday, a car turned down the street toward the protesters and the driver started honking its horn. The vehicle stopped in the roadway, police said, and Foster approached the driver’s side window as others began striking the car. The driver then opened fire, striking Foster.
Manley said at a news conference Sunday that the driver reported Foster pointed his weapon at them before the shooting. KVUE-TV reported that police have said Foster did not discharge his weapon, but the chief did say someone else in the crowd did return fire as the car left the scene.
