(NewsReady.com) – Black Lives Matter (BLM) has taken to the streets in yet another American city following a police shooting on Sunday, September 13.
Cops in Lancaster, PA, were called to investigate a domestic disturbance Sunday night – but when they arrived at the home, they were immediately attacked by a man armed with a large kitchen knife. The officer who had to face down the frenzied charge drew his weapon and fired several shots, killing the attacker; nobody else was injured.

Within hours of the shooting, a crowd of several hundred “peaceful protesters” gathered outside the station house and began pelting it with missiles. They damaged a police cruiser parked outside and officers finally had to use pepper spray to disperse the mob.
On Sunday evening, the Lancaster County DA’s office announced the name of the 27-year-old who attacked the officers: Ricardo Munoz. Munoz was on bail awaiting trial for stabbing four people, including a minor, during a fight last March, and had previously been charged with stalking, trespass, and harassment. This shooting follows that of Jacob Blake, another habitual criminal, who was paralyzed in Kenosha, WI, on August 23, after allegedly harassing his ex-girlfriend while armed with a knife.
