WaPo Documents …. β€œπŸ—ž Video Timeline: Crackdown on Protesters on June 1, 2020 …. Practice Run? πŸ—ž ….”!!

~~June 8, 2020~~



I was watching TV as I have been during these trying, difficult uncertain times. I knew Trump was going to address the nation but I can’t stomach listening or watching him. I was watching other reporting of the news when I first saw the line of ‘policemen‘ and ‘military forces‘ aligning themselves on the periphery of the protesters’ location. I realized this was serious when I first noticed the presence of the ‘horsemen’ … then the firing of canister, and the ‘so-called’ grnades began.

Then all hell broke loose!

(First time I’d seen this in my lifetime!)

In the end, to watch the ‘glorious walk‘ of the mighty commander and his cohorts and the eventual ‘photo-op’.

Thank you, WaPo, for this compilation.


A Video Timeline of the Crackdown on Protesters before

Trump’s Photo-Op

~~Published June 8, 2020~~

The Washington Post analyzed hours of video footage and obtained audio of police communications and other records to assemble the most complete account to date of the June 1 crackdown on protesters in Washington D.C.

Late in the day on June 1, demonstrators gathered near the White House, on the edge of Lafayette Square, to protest police abuse following the death in custody of Minneapolis resident George Floyd.

Similar protests had erupted across the country. Many were peaceful, but some included property destruction and clashes with police.

At about 6:30 PM, just north of the White House, federal police in riot gear fired gas canisters and used grenades containing rubber pellets to scatter the largely peaceful demonstrators.

Their actions cleared the way for the president, surrounded by the nation’s top law enforcement and military leaders, to walk to the historic St. John’s Church for a three-minute photo op. Watch how a remarkable hour of Trump’s presidency unfolded.

    • I believe so. If you saw it on TV, as it happened, there’s nothing new. It’s very interesting bc they also have the communications between the agencies, etc. I don’t believe it’s too graphic.
      Let me know what you think if you decide to watch! Hugs … πŸ™πŸ½
