Tyler Gerth was a 27 year old amateur photographer whose life has been tragically cut short. This young man was murdered in Louisville, Kentucky over the weekend. As a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, he spent much of his free time taking photographs of the protesters. He was murdered at Jefferson Square Park, during a protest.
He was not the intended victim. A dispute took place at the park and one of the parties came back with a gun. Gerth’s family is devastated by the loss and referred to him as a strong supporter of the movement. This shooting was even caught on video. Steven Lopez has been identified as the man who is responsible for this horrific tragedy.
Gerth, 27, was fatally shot Saturday night at a protest in Jefferson Square Park, the unintended victim of a man who got in a dispute at the protest site and came back with a gun, protesters at the scene said…
Gerth had become a vocal supporter of ongoing protests against racism and police brutality and, his family said, a strong supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement…
The family said in a statement that they are “devastated that his life was taken was from us far too soon.”
He is now facing murder charges, in addition to a charge for wanton endangerment. The arrest citation was released by the Louisville Police Department. These are the unintended consequences associated with the Black Lives Matter movement. When protests go awry, innocent people are hurt and killed.
Are any of the protesters going to help Tyler Gerth’s friends and loved ones to deal with this sudden loss? He was one of the more vocal supporters in this area and this is how was he repaid for being willing to help. The longer the unrest continues, the more common these stories become. It’s a sad state of affairs and we wish that we did not have to be confronted with this sort of news on a daily basis.
Unfortunately, there does not seem to be any end in sight. The protests are only going to continue. Tens of millions of Americans are out of work and the number seems to climb on a weekly basis. With so many people who are struggling to find their next paycheck, the level of national unrest is also going to continue to climb.
Our hearts go out to the families of all those who are affected by what is taking place. These are the stories that the mainstream media is not going to report on. The Democrats want everyone to believe that the protests are not causing any long term damage but nothing could be further from the truth. They are continuing to cheer on the protests, ignoring the very real toll that they are taking on America as a whole.
If the shoe was on the other foot and the Democrats could report on police violence, this story would be plastered all over the news. The Americans who are being victimized by the protests are only spoken about when they fit the agenda that has been decided upon by the liberal elites. There is not much that can be done at the moment.
It is more important for politicians and reporters to act as if they are standing in solidarity with the protesters right now. For the Democrats, these actions are viewed as a necessary corrective to the Trump administration. Joe Biden and his cronies seem to believe that they can portray themselves as the perfect liberals. At the moment, this seems to be the only plan that they have.
The mainstream media is walking with them, in lockstep. They are content to pretend that things are perfectly okay and we wonder how many more people have to die for them to wake up. These charlatans can only continue to hoodwink good and decent Americans for so long. Even those who are supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement are no longer safe, which is the truly disconcerting part.
In a perfect world, the protests would cease and the nation would be able to find a sense of normalcy again. This feels like a pipe dream at the moment, though. Anyone who is willing to neglect the facts to fuel their chosen narrative cannot be trusted but this is just everyday life in America now. The new normal has arrived and it is very unnerving.
