Black Lives Matter Mob Cheers as Cop Knocked Unconscious With a 'Brick' - WATCH
Wisconsin police officer attacked by leftists on Kenosha street amid rioting
A Wisconsin police officer has been attacked and knocked unconscious with a thrown object during Black Lives Matter riots on the streets on Kenosha.
Video shows a violent mob cheering as the cop is stuck in in the head, with an object believed to be a brick.
The crowd is then seen filming and heckling other cops as they attempt to help their downed officer.
The incident occurred during rioting that broke out late on Sunday night in response to a black man being shot by authorities earlier in the day.
Journalist Andy Ngo, who recently testified before the U.S. Senate as an expert on Antifa, posted a video on Twitter of the alleged incident.
In the video, one of the officers can be seen getting hit by the object that appears to knock him out, causing him to instantly hit the ground face-first.
Someone yelling in the background can be heard shouting: “He just got bricked! He just got bricked!”
As the mob gathers round and begins to realize that the victim is a law enforcement officer, one person begins to applaud — and then loud cheering and hooting and hollering are heard.
"Yeah!" one person yells after officers drag the injured cop to the sidewalk.
"That's the police!" another person cries out in apparent glee.
Police have yet to make a statement regarding the condition of the officer, accoridng to The Blaze.
Police shot Jacob Blake near 28th Avenue and 40th Street just after 5 p.m. following a call about a "domestic incident," WDJT-TV reported.
Cellphone video of the shooting shows Blake walking away from police and getting into an SUV, the station said, adding that one officer is seen holding Blake's shirt after which seven gunshots are heard.

Police said officers provided immediate aid to the man after the shooting, WDJT said, adding that he was transported via Flight for Life to a Milwaukee hospital in serious condition.
The station said Blake's cousin posted the following on Twitter early Monday morning:
Jacob is out of surgery and In ICU. We will continue to pray as he fights. We will not excuse the actions of the Kenosha Police department, but his mother asks everyone to please remain peaceful.— Pauly (@PaulyG103) August 24, 2020
"It should have never happened especially with four or five cops and one guy," one person told WDJT.
"He didn't have no weapon or nothing...
"It's happening everywhere, it's crazy it's happening here now."
Unrest following the shooting continued into the night, and Kenosha County declared a state of emergency curfew that lasted until 7 a.m. Monday, the station said.
Early Monday morning WDJT reported seeing burned-out garbage trucks, vandalized businesses, a burned car lot, and authorities blocking the area around the Kenosha County Courthouse.
The courthouse was closed Monday.
