on Monday, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said Justin was among protesters filming with his phone when a man standing beside him threw a water bottle and a backpack towards police. According to Manley, officers fired"less-lethal munition" towards the man, but hit Justin in the head instead.

He also criticized police officers for firing more ammunition at a group of five protesters who were instructed by police to bring Justin to them for treatment. Manley concluded his press briefing by saying,"We are praying for this young man and his family, and we're hoping that his condition improves quickly."

TooFab Why do they keep calling it protesting

TooFab

TooFab Cover the death of the 6 cops that have been killed over this shit. you whack jobs!

TooFab Peaceful protestor mistook a riot for a peaceful protest, cant blame him they seem pretty similar lol hope they make the bullets dick shaped

TooFab Law & Order is gone; I support police 100%. They risk their lives, protect communities & protect all of us. For them to see thru the smoke of violent & non-violent protestors is near impossible when 2 sides are in the chaos of the crowd. This sh*t needs to stop on all sides!

TooFab To think these riots all started because george floyd made a decision to pay with counterfeit money then gets killed by a crooked ass cop because he resisted and refused to stay seated in the cruiser

TooFab Don't care about this one or the 10 others that resulted from rioting, eh HarveyLevinTMZ ? He was a black man. Most of the deaths have been black men; you know the thing your 'protesting' against?
