Armed militia member arrested after man is shot at Albuquerque protest

Just look what this sorry excuse of a person has around his neck when he is apprehended.


I’m not being flippant and am probably missing the obvious, but I cannot figure out what a tin foil wrapped roll of toilet paper on a chain is ammosexual cosplay for. Ball and chain? ¯_(ツ)_/¯


People were calling the police for a half hour before the shooting, but they didn’t come until afterwards. And tear gassed the crowd when they got there.

I read down a rabbit hole that the authorities were heard referring to this militia—make that vigilantes—as “armed friendlies” on their radio transmissions. Can’t find it again, so can’t cite a verification.

Also, note the lack of pig piles and knees on necks, but they look more like military than police, so there’s that.


Here are the origins of the armed friendlies story.

I’ve seen this in the news about German anti-lockdown protests, but also already IRL before seeing it in the media. Mostly balls rolled from aluminium foil on a string, sometimes also toilet paper on a string, in this case both combined, in some cases the literal tin foil hat.

t’s a call sign. It’s “ironic” or “clever” and appeals to various backgrounds - full nutjob CT arseholes as well as concerned citizens who have a sense of humour and not the sense to distance themselves from those who try to hijack any protest to push their neo-fascists agenda.

Bottom line: it is trolling. Fuck this asshats.
