BLM protester hit by CAR in Rochester while Pittsburgh demonstrators harass restaurant diners on fiery Labor Day Weekend
BLACK Lives Matter protesters were caught on video harassing restaurant diners as part of a chaotic Labor Day weekend of unrest that also saw a demonstrator hit by a car.
Pittsburgh cops are now investigating a video that appears to show BLM activists tormenting people eating outside in the Pennsylvania city on Saturday.
In one video, a man screamed that the diners were an “embarrassment” through a megaphone as some of them could be seen getting out of their seats.
This shocking footage showed demonstrators giving an elderly couple the middle finger and screaming at them, before a female protester marches over to their table and drinks an entire glass of beer.
The man who stuck up his middle finger at the old man sitting there laughed during the unpleasant interaction, while his fellow marchers shouted "f**k the police" as they charged through the streets.
On Sunday, local station WTAE revealed that authorities are looking into the video from the restaurant and different footage of a cyclist carrying a bike who was targeted by enraged protesters.
Tensions escalated over the holiday weekend, which saw diners harassed and a car plowing into a crowd.
The supposedly peaceful protests were punctuated with scenes of violent clashes – including the moment one man is mown down by a car.
A red car can be seen driving directly into a group of protesters standing at an intersection in Rochester, New York, as tensions across the country reached a boiling point.
Screams and shouts can be heard as the car drives directly through the group, spraying an unknown substance at them.
A sickening thud can be heard and a woman screams as a man rolls across the car's bonnet and crashes to the ground.
The protester who shared the footage said: "The driver was not arrested at the scene. Volunteer medics responded to the injured protestors."
She added throughout the course of the evening she was also hit with rubber bullets and pepper-sprayed during confrontations with Rochester's police department.
Elsewhere, in footage taken by FreedomNews TV, diners looked terrified as protesters smashed the customer's glasses in front of their faces, broke plates, overturned chairs, and chanted at them to leave the eatery.
"We're shutting your party down," one woman is seen shouting in the face of a diner.
"No need to run," a protester told one woman whose clothing got tangled as she tried to run from the crowd.
"If you don't give us our s**t, we shut s**t down," the crowd chants.
Cops were called out to several marches over the weekend as racial tensions bubble over in the wake of the shooting of Jacob Blake, and the deaths of Daniel Prude and George Floyd.
In Rochester, twelve arrests were made on Sunday while cops deployed rubber bullets and pepper spray.
Activists who refused requests to disperse also hurled bottles, rocks, and fireworks at cops.
