Man pulls gun on St. Petersburg protesters during live broadcast

Counter-protesters shadow and confront demonstrators as they march through a crowded downtown.

A man aimed a pistol at protesters as they marched through downtown Saturday night in an incident broadcast on Facebook Live.

There were a series of confrontations downtown between the St. Pete Protest movement and small groups of counter-protesters and other individuals shadowing and yelling at the demonstrators at several points through the night.

A St. Petersburg police spokeswoman told the Tampa Bay Times that officers saw the gun incident on social media and are gathering information.

The tense situation unfolded while downtown was packed with people crowding into bars and restaurants the day after Gov. Ron DeSantis lifted all remaining statewide coronavirus restrictions — allowing bars and restaurants to return to normal capacity. The governor made the announcement Friday in St. Petersburg.

It may have been downtown’s busiest night since the COVID-19 pandemic started in March. Florida reported 2,795 coronavirus cases that day, raising its total infections to 698,682.

1. with all of that deliberate COVID spreading going on...

...the gun being pulled might have been the least of the violence.

2. They are adults

And they have access to the same data that the rest of us do so if they get sick too efing bad, they don't care about anyone but themselves


I have no sympathy for any of them

3. Neither do I, but they'll hurt other people who aren't so stupid

If ignoring COVID was purely a personal choice, it would be one thing, but it's not, and they are doing violence to innocent people.
