Teen Sisters Hurt During Stockton Protest Felt Targeted Because They Are White

STOCKTON (CBS13) – Stockton police are searching for the suspects in a vicious attack that happened on Friday against two teenaged sisters.

Police say a group of protestors wearing Black Lives Matter shirts held a vigil and a protest near the intersection of Pacific and Yokuts avenues.

CBS13 has learned there is no formal Black Lives Matter group in Stockton — and according to officials with the Sacramento chapter, no one from the movement was involved with the protest or the attack.

Protestors were remembering Colby Friday, an African-American man who was shot and killed by Stockton police in August after he ignored an officer’s commands to drop his handgun.

Police say two Caucasian girls left a local restaurant and passed by the protest when they were attacked by the protestors.

What was supposed to be a peaceful protest remembering Colby Friday turned into a vicious brawl directed against two sisters, and now, investigators are looking for suspects.

“Our understanding is that it involved several out-of-towners whose intent was more than protesting,” said Ron Freitas, the Assistant District Attorney for San Joaquin County.

Stockton police say the protestors claimed to be connected with the Black Lives Matter movement and were protesting recent officer-involved shootings against blacks.

According to police, the two female victims say they felt the attack was racially-fueled because they are white.

Police are not releasing any details about what led up to the attack but say the sisters suffered non-life threatening injuries to their faces and bodies.

Stockton police say there were officers assigned to keep an eye on the protest Friday but say they did not see the attack.

No charges have been filed yet, as the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office is waiting to receive the police report.

“We are disappointed but we are moving forward to get down to the bottom of this,” Freitas said.

Stockton police are now reviewing surveillance video from the area to figure out how the encounter turned violent.

A $10,000 reward is being offered for any information leading to an arrest.

    Ha! Police are investigating who started all the violence? Really? It was the vicious white teen age girls, of course, walking by the people of color, taunting them with their whiteness. How dare they be so white? White people are devils, didn’t you know?

    In this thread
    “See! We told you ALL black people were evil!”

    And a $10,000 reward for whoever catches who beat up on Becky and Sarah?
    *Whistles* Sure that’s enough?

  4. Whenever you come up upon a mob of wild eyed angry Negro’s its best to walk backwards slowly towards where you came from,dont run because they can outrun you,your best option is to just outsmart them which is very easy to do,just dont panic as this will only trigger their primal instincts and result in a serious beat down or worse,good luck.

    Only one problem with this story. This is not BlackLivesMatter protesters. This is the BlackLivesMatter socialist front group. They include blacks and whites, are funded by George Soros, bused in wherever and whenever something happens, are on notice to be quickly bused in, and are traitors to the United States.

    Lets not have the pretend this is a bunch of locals who are traumatized. That meme i already a proven lie.
