Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Woman in wheelchair accused of ‘stabbing people,’ gets attacked by looters in chaotic Minneapolis protest”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A woman in a wheelchair was pushed, punched and sprayed with a fire extinguisher after being accused of “stabbing people” outside a Target store in Minneapolis during Wednesday night’s chaotic protest over the death of George Floyd.

Conflicting accounts on social media described her both as a disabled woman who was trying to block looters from breaking into the store and as a violent assailant who was armed with a knife and threatening to hurt protesters.

One of the videos that was shared on Twitter shows the woman, identified online as “Jennifer,” attempting to block a Target emergency door as a crowd of people urges her to move and shouts incoherently.

The footage, which was also shared by conservative writer Andy Ngô, shows one of the people spraying her with a fire extinguisher and throwing objects at her.

But several social media users mocked the woman and accused her of pretending to be disabled. Another clip that surfaced online shows a woman who appears to be “Jennifer” effortlessly walking toward a group of protesters before returning to her wheelchair.
