A Salt Lake City man who shouted ‘all lives matter’ was beaten and his car was torched after he took out a compound bow and aimed it at demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd on Saturday.
Video on social media shows Brandon McCormick climb out of his car at an intersection in the Utahn capital with the weapon, which he then aimed at several protesters.
A few moments later, a mob surrounds McCormick and starts beating him up.
They flipped over McCormick’s car and set it on fire.
It did not appear that McCormick shot anyone with the bow.
‘First, I got beat up when I yelled “All Lives Matter”,’ McCormick told KSL-TV on Saturday.
‘Then I pulled out weapons and I got beat up some more.
‘The cops grabbed me and my car got totaled … I lost everything, coming down here to try to protect [officers] with what weapons I had.’
McCormick added: ‘I back up the law enforcement.
‘I know some cops are bad. I know some people are racists are bad.’
He later told Deseret News: ‘I came down here originally to help the cops.
‘But, all I did was yell out, “All lives matter” and I got beat up by black people.’
