Gunfire erupted on the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin on the third day of race riots led by anarchists and the left-wing NGO Black Lives Matter.
Kenosha, which is 67% white and working class, has been abandoned by Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, who has released public statements providing moral support to the rioters and rejected federal law enforcement resources.
Multiple white-owned family businesses have been burned to the ground in the pogroms. The police have been tepid in their attempts to keep the peace due to political pressure from above.
A video published to Twitter early Wednesday shows a young white man with an AR-15 on the ground being jumped by a mob. The man fired his rifle at the attackers, wounding at least two.
A still image from the incident shows that at least one of the anarchist aggressors pulled out a handgun during the melee.
