Black Lives Matter protesters heckling the victim of a deranged black man shooting at her is peak Black Lives Matter.
This is the sort of thing that happens when there is rampant distortion of the facts to fit a narrative. In this case, it’s that police are looking for reasons to kill innocent black men.
Except… Andrew “Tekle” Sundberg wasn’t so innocent. He was terrorizing his neighbor and her children by shooting into their apartment.
Sundberg’s family said that he had struggled with mental illness, and yet, somehow he obtained a firearm and had an extended magazine as well as multiple cartridges. Weird.
His neighbor, Arabella Yarbrough, called 911 fearing that she and her children wouldn’t make it out of their apartment alive.
This call led to a 6-hour standoff with police who attempted to negotiate with Sundberg — even going so far as to bring his parents to the scene in order to try to get the gunman to drop the weapon and leave his apartment.
Minneapolis police shot and killed Andrew Sundberg, 20, following an hours-long standoff at an apartment building in the Seward neighborhood where multiple shots were fired.
Minneapolis police say the incident started around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday when police responded after a woman called saying a man had shot into her apartment on the 900 block of 21st Avenue South. As officers arrived on the scene, they heard more shots being fired…
…Throughout the night police say they attempted to get Sundberg out of his apartment. They brought his parents to the scene to call him, left him voicemails, and video messages.
After about six hours of negotiations, around 4:30 a.m., officers fired at Sundberg. He was taken to the hospital where he later died. What immediately led up to the shooting is unclear at this time.

CBS News interviewed the traumatized woman that Sundberg was shooting at.
In her apartment.
With her children.
When she heard the first loud bang Wednesday evening, Arabella Yarbrough didn’t think it was a gunshot. Then, a bullet tore through the kitchen wall of her south Minneapolis apartment.
She grabbed her two young sons, ran into the bedroom and called 911. It marked the start of a six-hour standoff in the Seward neighborhood that ended Thursday morning with police snipers fatally shooting 20-year-old Andrew “Tekle” Sundberg.
Yarbrough told WCCO-TV that bullets were flying through her apartment as she ran to unlock a metal door to let officers inside.
“I said, ‘Please go get my kids, go get my kids,” Yarbrough said, describing what she told first-responders. “So they hurry up and they are trying to dodge bullets too to go get my kids.”
The single mom says she feared for their lives. “I felt we weren’t going to make it,” she said, with emotion in her voice.
Yarbrough was outside the building through the night as officers tried to negotiate with Sundberg.
“The police were really patient, because he was still shooting at us,” Yarbrough said. “Police had every right to kill that man, Black or white …That right there, police did their job, and they took their time.”

Of course, BLM showed up because the only black lives that they seem to care about are black men, (often armed and/or in the process of committing a crime,) who are then shot by police.
Yarbrough said that Sundberg was an awful neighbor and had had “a few run-ins” with him and he was stalking her.
KARE 11 had this report on the BLM protest.
Sundberg’s adoptive mother said that he didn’t deserve to be “picked off like an animal from a rooftop” and that “he deserved to be able to address this with her [Yarbrough].”
Actually, it appears shooting into her apartment was how he was “addressing” things with his neighbor. Did his neighbor and her children deserve that?
This guy fired multiple rounds into a single mother’s apartment with her kids at home and refused to obey police to drop the weapon and get out of the apartment after hours of attempting to de-escalate the situation with his family’s help.
You know what they say about playing stupid games and winning stupid prizes.
But the BLM supporters don’t have any sympathy for the horror that this young mom and her kids went through.
Instead, when she showed up to pick up her belongings and saw the memorial for this thug, and expressed her disgust and outrage at the protesters there celebrating his life, they heckled her and called her a liar.
One man with no empathy whatsoever shouts at her, “You’re alive. Shut up!”
Yarbrough screams at protesters to go home as they continue to heckle her. She yells, “He tried to kill me in front of my kids!”
Things boiled over during Saturday’s rally and march for Tekle Sundberg, when the 24 year old woman who says he was shooting into her apt. showed up voicing her frustration with those gathering in front of her building on Sundberg’s behalf. @kare11 * video contains profanity * pic.twitter.com/qdi1vbgO7k

Yarbrough said that she didn’t want to report the behavior of a clearly mentally disturbed black man to the police.
She had bought into BLM’s “police are targeting innocent black men” narrative and that is why she didn’t report his behavior earlier.
She was on their side and now they’ve turned on her.
These protesters have zero compassion and don’t give a crap about the victims that Sundberg terrorized.
And she and her kids were terrroized.
Lying scumbag hearse-chaser, Ben Crump is of course involved. Crump has swooped in on a lot of these cases — he has been the attorney for the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and George Floyd, and has represented Jacob Blake, who sexually assaulted a woman and was shot by police as he was attempting to steal her car with her children inside. Oh, and Blake had a knife. The shooting of Jacob Blake caused the firey riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where Kyle Rittenhouse was forced to defend himself from murderous BLM/Antifa rioters.
As Jacob Blake lay unconscious in the hospital, Ben Crump stood by Blake’s family and his fiancée/victim gushing about what a wonderful guy he is. Crump is trying to do the same with Sundberg. He tweeted out what a wonderful, smart, loving, and artistic young man he was. No mention of the stalking and shooting his neighbor.
This is Tekle Sundberg. Minneapolis Police Department killed this smart, loving & artistic 20-year-old after an hours-long standoff while he was experiencing a mental health crisis. We need ANSWERS from MPD as to why Tekle's mental health crisis became a death sentence! pic.twitter.com/MuxrzxcHL0

A GoFundMe has been set up for Sundberg. At the time of this writing, over $20,000 has been raised.
The GoFundMe for shooter Andrew Tekle Sundberg now has over $15K – out raising his victim, a single mother who hid with her two sons in her bedroom as he shot bullets through the walls of her apartment.

If you’re still using GoFundMe after the insane situation with the Canadian truckers… well, maybe this will change your mind.
GoFundMe deleted the page for Jose Alba, the bodega worker who defended himself, because “our terms prohibit fundraising for legal defense of a violent crime.”

Another GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Arabella Yarbrough and her kids. It now sits over $52,000.
If only BLM could have a wee bit of compassion for the victims of the people that they choose to turn into saints.
While BLM wants to shut her up, it looks like Arabella Yarbrough isn’t the kind of woman that is going to stay quiet. Good.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
