OUCH! Black Lives Matter Activist Loses Testicle During Los Angeles Riot (PHOTOS)
This had to be extremely painful.
A Black Lives Matter activist/rioter is claiming that police shot him in his groin during one of the protests/riots in Los Angeles back in May resulting in him losing one of his testicles.
The man, Bradley Steyn is a career activist. When he was younger, he was involved in the anti-apartheid protests in South Africa, the country that he grew up in.
According to TMZ,
He claims he witnessed police brutality, then became a victim himself when cops allegedly used batons to beat him in the chest … before shooting him with rubber bullets at point-blank range.
Bradley claims he was hit in the inner thigh and genitals and has since suffered horrific pain and the loss of a testicle.
His attorney, Lisa Bloom, will hold a press conference with him in front of LAPD headquarters Thursday, where Bradley will speak on “the impact his beating and shooting has had on his life and family.”
Bloom and Bradley will also reveal details of the legal action they are taking against the police department and call for specific reforms. Bloom says, “Police brutality is our national shame.”
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that this guy is full of crap. I know that there is police brutality but I’d be willing to bet that there is much more to this story.
I’d be willing to bet that either this man didn’t actually get shot in the testicles point-blank as he says, or he did something to deserve it. Honestly, I’d bet even if he did do something to warrant such force, they didn’t shoot him point-blank as he suggests.
LAPD shot my client Bradley Steyn, anti apartheid and #BLM activist, with a rubber bullet to his scrotum, rupturing his testicle.
We will fight for justice for Bradley and several other police rubber bullet victims I represent, who were also maimed.https://t.co/BLneq9p537

Steyn has since started up his own GoFund Me campaign in order to try and raise funds to take care of his medical and legal bills.
