Suspect Filmed Beating Trump Supporters In DC Is A Journalism Student
Published in Nov 2020 / Updated in Aug 2021
After the “Million MAGA March” in Washington, DC, a Black Lives Matter protester was caught on camera assaulting Trump supporters. The woman was Brittany S. McAlister, a 29-year-old Washington, DC resident.
She was identified assaulting at least two people on two separate video clips. These videos soon went viral.
So now, many people know about the protester and her unbecoming behavior.
The woman is actually a third-year journalism student. Up until the videos of these incidents went viral, she was working as a freelance journalist.
She studies at Howard University.
The first video of her was retweeted by Trump. In this video, she is filmed kicking an unconscious man on the ground.
At the time she carried out the assault, she was holding a camera.
The man had been sucker-punched by Kenneth Wayne DeBerry. After the blow, he was unconscious.
Wayne was later arrested and charged for the assault.
Soon after, McAlister carried out her second assault, which was recorded in a different video. This time, an unsuspecting woman was her target.
In the second video, she got behind a woman carrying an American flag. Then she punched her in the head and ran away.
Refuse Fascism, a far left group, had profiled the activist earlier in the day. But the tweet has since been deleted.
McAlister had given a speech at Black Lives Matter Plaza against Trump and his followers.
She’s Nowhere To Be Seen
Since her videos went viral, the woman has deactivated her social media accounts and deleted them.
In addition, she took down her own website. On the site, she claimed to be a “freelance backpack journalist” operating Pawzels, a magazine.
However, she is still walking free.
Nevertheless, Metropolitan Police Department released a photo of the journalist while also asking the public to help facilitate her capture.
“Million MAGA March” was peaceful. Additionally, thousands of attendees were present during the rally.
However, in the late afternoon, violence started. As a result, the protesters had to forget about the event and go back to their hotels.
A few sideshows stole the show, including this criminal behavior by the student journalist. At the moment, McAlister is still a fugitive from the law.
