An older man trying to defend his business against Black Lives Matter rioters and looters who robbed him and also set the establishment on fire in Kenosha, Wisc., Monday evening was nearly knocked unconscious by a sucker punch.
In a video clip posted by an unknown woman who says she’s not part of the rioting records the man, who is white, as he wields a fire extinguisher that he uses to shoo away looters.
“This poor man got his business caught on fire,” the woman says.
“I’m sorry sir, I’m very sorry about that, man,” she tells him as he walks towards her.
“Yeah, really,” the man responds as he walks away from her.
**Warning: Strong language
“Hey, I had nothing to do with that, I’m trying to stop this s**t here,” the woman says.

These are the scum of the Earth. Evil people. The worst humanity has to offer.

The man is then seen firing the extinguisher a number of times, using the white billowing fire retardant against looters as they either try to get into his business or as they exit.
“Dude, I’m gonna help this guy, I don’t give a f**k if I get beat up,” the woman then says.
As the man continues to spray looters and rioters in an attempt to defend his business, he is struck by an unknown assailant in the head and collapses.
“Hey, hey, hey, no, noooo,” the woman screams as the man is struck.
Next, the man is seen laying on the ground with blood coming out of his nose while bystanders try to attend to him and provide him assistance.
“Are you okay? Are you okay?” asks the woman repeatedly while crying and screaming can be heard in the background as the commotion deepens and smoke billows out of the business.
“He was defending his business, that’s all he was doing,” the woman says, explaining to others who have gathered to see what was going on.
“And they walked up and f**ked him up. F**ked him up! I have it all on video,” she says.
“He didn’t deserve any of that. Any of it,” she added. “This is just wrong guys, do you not see this? This is wrong.”
“We tryin’ to protect ourselves,” an unknown woman says in response. “You don’t understand what terrifies these black men out here.”
Rioting and looting continued for a second night on Monday in the eastern Wisconsin city of about 100,000 after an officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, who is black, on Sunday.

A viral video of the incident shows Blake walking away from three officers who have their firearms trained on him. Ignoring their commands, he circles around the front of his SUV then opens up the driver’s door and reaches inside. An officer attempted to grab him and pull him out before firing seven shots.
BLM activists and others took to the streets of the once-quiet city following the shooting, burning, and looting businesses.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, who quickly condemned the officers though he admitted he had no details, deployed 125 National Guard troops to assist police as the ransacking continued Monday night despite a curfew.
