Videos of police set afire during Guadalajara protest, U.S. Embassy attacked by anarchists

Chivis Martinez for Borderland Beat

A video circulating on social networks shows the moment when a young man attacks a police officer from behind with fire accelerant and sets him on fire during the protests that took place this afternoon in Jalisco, protesting the death of the bricklayer Giovanni López, after his arrest.
In the video footage you  see the moment in which a young man, wearing a gray shirt and wearing a mask, and black glasses, pours the accelerant on the back of a policeman who is boarding his motorcycle, and sets it on fire.
After the attack, the uniformed man falls from the motorcycle and rolls on the ground attempting to put out the fire whose flames are running along his back.
Other police and participants in the protest rush to help the officer and apparently manage to extinguish the fire. So far, the health status of the element is unreported.

Police Attack:

  1. screw the cops . . . they thought people would keep taking their crap forever.

  2. That doesn't mean you have to set the guy o fire but if the officer defends himself jerkoffs like you start crying .hope the guy that threw the gasoline gets shot.

    1. There are many more cases where police torture best and kill civilians... I thinks it's the other way around... Now that this happened you seem to be the one crying. Look at what happened in Juarez, a man sued the Estatales for entering his house without a warrant. They kill him... Good thing is that this time they didn't get away with it. 9 officers were arrested.

    2. I agree with 903 seems like you’re the one crying little girl.

  3. Now is the time to find common ground and build on it. Both sides are polarized because only the most extreme elements are described. I do not like to be manipulated. Thank you very much.

  4. So its bullshit that for decades police brutality against black or brown have gone unpunished? This portrait of brutality is no different from what the American government condemns in China & now Hong Kong.
    All smoke & mirrors when it pertains to democracy & freedom of speech.
    Glad to finally see an agenda that is long overdue; Fraternal order of police irregularities over the firing of police officers, police pension and funding forfeiture and incarceration for police officers.
    These masses clearly outnumber the ruling party.
