Thanks to Caleb Bonham and his group at Campus Reform who managed to obtain video showing the protesters walking through the library disrupting those students trying to study.
One of the protesters walks by the cameraman with the flip sign. Another gets in the face of those who are studying demanding they say that black lives matter.
A young man who watched it all happened felt sorry for one of the students target during this demonstration.
According to TheTab.com
The large group of protestors began to move up and yell at students on first floor Berry. Students were again yelled at to stand up in support of the protest, and many did so, either out of support or fear.
After making a girl cry, a protestor screamed “Fuck your white tears.”
I was startled by the aggression from a small minority of students towards students in the library, many of whom were supporters of the movement.
From what I witnessed, a small number of the protestors resorted to aggressive verbal harassment. I didn’t see any physical aggression.
At that moment, the protest strategies became. counterproductive. I chose to leave the event before it was over.
I had been incredibly excited to be a part of the protest the day before the blackout, emailing out to friends encouraging them to come.
I am a proud supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, but I was ashamed at what the protest turned into.

This is way beyond free speech, this is mob rule and something needs to be done about it before it gets way out of hand. What are your feelings?
