Black Lives Matter Protesters Disrupt Litter Press Conference At City Hall

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Two Philadelphia men brought an early end to a news conference in the Mayor’s Reception room on Monday morning.

The news conference was about the zero waste and litter initiative but the men wanted to talk about the death of a civilian at the hands of police.

Asa Khalif and Isaac Gardner of Black Lives Matter strolled into the reception room as Council President Darrell Clarke was speaking and aimed their anger over the fatal police shooting of 32-year-old David Jones of Germantown squarely at him.

“Where do you stand on the shooting death of David Jones?” asked Khalif.

“Want to have a meeting?” responded Clarke.

“I want you to say it here in front of everybody,” said Khalif.

“You’re not going to dictate the terms of the discussion,” Clarke shot back.

“Well, then, we’re going to keep right here,” said Khalif.

The disruption continued for about 10 minutes until it was clear there would be no resolution, other than to end the event.

Khalif and Gardner have disrupted other public events and held protests since the June shooting. The state attorney general’s office is investigating.

  1. The fun’s just starting, folks. Come November, Soros puppet, Comrade Krasner, will be elected as DA, with Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and Occupy as their totalitarian enforcers. Combine this with the alien criminals who pour in thanks to Comrade Kenney’s sanctuary city policy and life will never be the same here.

    Don’t pull a gun on the cops, don’t get shot. It is as simple as that.
    All BLM does is complain and protest. How about going out and cleaning up their community, patrolling, pushing back against the drug dealers killing other blacks.
    Oh wait, Soros and the Obama Foundation don’t pay them to do that. Just make trouble.
