Shouldn’t that read “Rich, paranoid suburbanites overreact to a peaceful protest”?
…But Daniel Shular, a freelance photojournalist who was at the protest, said he didn’t see anyone breaking into the neighborhood and instead recalled seeing protesters simply strolling through an open gate.
“I kind of turned around to take some pictures of people coming through the gate, then I turned back around and by then he had his long gun in his hand,” Shular told NBC News. “And the woman came out with a pistol and started pointing it with her finger on the trigger at everybody.”
“It was just angry sort of … people asking, ‘Why do you have a gun? It’s a peaceful protest!’” Shular said, adding that he didn’t see people yelling at the couple “until they started brandishing guns, then it got heated.”
