Opinion| By now many of you have seen this clip of Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo, asking where it says that protests need to be peaceful:

‘… and please, show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite, and peaceful!’ -Chris Cuomo

Fox News is reporting:

‘A police officer who was shot in the head during a Las Vegas Strip protest of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis is paralyzed from the neck down, on a ventilator and unable to speak, his family said in a statement released by police.

Officer Shay Mikalonis, 29, was shot June 1 during protests over the death of Floyd at the hands of police. The family statement released on twitter by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Saturday said he is expected to stay on the ventilator. He has been tentatively accepted at a spine rehabilitation center.

The family thanked doctors, nurses and staff at University Medical Center in Las Vegas for their care and the community for support and fundraising.’

‘Prosecutors have charged a 20-year-old man with deliberately shooting Mikalonis during the protest, one of hundreds being held across the nation. A judge who reviewed evidence at June 5 court hearing said that police video shows Edgar Samaniego “walking by, taking out a gun and firing … at officers.”’

We have decided not to publish the video showing the shooting out of respect for the family of the victim.
