New York couple point guns at Black Lives Matter protesters marching past their house

A New York couple pointed guns at protesters marching past their house during a Black Lives Matter rally, and activists want them to be charged.

Protesters were nearing the end of their parade route when a white man came out of his home shouting obscenities in an apparent attempt to incite the group, and then yelled to his wife to get his gun, reported WNYT-TV.

Hudson Mayor Kamal Johnson, who took part in the march, said the woman came back outside and started waving the gun around.

State police were already at the scene to watch over the demonstration, and Johnson said troopers followed the woman into her home and returned with a gun.

The man and woman were placed inside a patrol car, but Johnson wondered why they weren’t handcuffed.

Johnson asked an officer why the couple wasn’t being charged, but he said the officer refused to answer and did not say whether the gun was illegal.

Some activists have pressed charges against the couple, whose names have no been released.

“We had several, several protesters who pressed charges for the menacing that they went through,” said activist Lukee Forbes. “We also had several videos and pictures delivered to the police officers, and yet they tell us that they’re still doing an investigation.”

The incident remains under investigation, according to police.

A Black woman in New York said that she was accused of "driving down" property values because a sign supporting Black Lives Matter was displayed in the window of her home.

The story was shared by Twitter user @pivyak, who said the incident occurred in Oswego after her sister painted a sign in the home's front window. The sign reads, "Silence supports police violence."

In an anonymous letter, self-described "neighbors" complained that they could not sell their homes for the "best price" because of the sign.

"We believe you've made your point," the letter states. "As tensions rise in our city, home is the safe and quiet place we wanted to return to after being at work. We want to come home to a beautiful street where neighbors care and support one another."

Published

Axios reporter Jonathan Swan interviewed President Donald Trump and it did not go well for the president. The internet is ablaze with astonishment over how the Australian journalist decimated Trump, as the clip below demonstrates.

"We're going to look at some of these charts," Trump, who is sitting in a very low chair, says to Swan.

"I'd like to," Swan replies.

Trump is fumbling with color printouts of charts that look like they were made for an elementary school class.
