A white woman was caught on camera ripping away a sign from a Black Lives Matter protester — and then crying to a police officer when the woman who was holding the sign punched her in retaliation.
A video showed the woman arguing with black demonstrators in Minneapolis who were protesting the fatal shooting of Thurman Blevins, an armed black man who was killed while trying to run away from police. The woman apparently had been blocked by the protesters and complained that she just wanted to go home.
A few seconds into the video, the white woman rips away a female protester’s sign that featured a portrait of Blevins — and the protester responded by punching her.
The video then shows the woman walking with a Minneapolis police officer and loudly crying to him about what happened to her. But Minneapolis police said no formal complaint was made.
As Minnesota’s Star Tribune reports, demonstrators descended on Hennepin County Government Center this week to protest against the decision to not charge the officers involved in the Blevins shooting.

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
