Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Patrol officer SET ON FIRE during police brutality protests over ‘Mexican George Floyd’ (VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The incident occurred in the city of Guadalajara, the capital of Mexico’s western state of Jalisco. The video circulating on social media shows a group of police officers on motorcycles in a standoff with protesters. At one point, a man wearing a mask and dark sunglasses pours flammable liquid on the back of one of the officers and sets him on fire. 

Let’s also not forget that Giovanni López, was arrested for not wearing a mask, criminalised by cops and brutally beaten to death. Guadalajara wildin’ rn ✊???????????????????? #Jalisco#GiovanniLopez#justicepic.twitter.com/vZWmgdLfvB

The policeman runs and falls to the pavement as fellow officers and bystanders rush to help. They manage to quickly put out the fire, after which the officer gets up and leaves the scene.

The protests were sparked by the death of Giovanni Lopez, 30, who was arrested a month ago near Guadalajara. Hours after his arrest, the man was taken from his cell to a hospital, where he died. His brother released footage showing police using force while arresting Lopez.
