Perhaps the Ferguson protesters delivered their “Rules of Engagement” to the wrong group of people?

University of Missouri at St. Louis student Chris Schaefer was attacked at a Ferguson, Missouri protest meeting on Thursday night, and then chased down the street after other — fellow — protesters believed he was live-streaming the meeting’s happenings on his phone.

Schaefer, who is white, eventually found safety at a nearby Walgreens, and from there was taken to a hospital to have “multiple injuries” treated.

Gateway Pundit notes a reaction from the Facebook “Justice for Mike Brown” page:

The meeting we had earlier at the church at 9950 Glen Owen Dr, St Louis, MO, alot of us attended the meeting but what happened with the attack on a peaceful protester was wrong and should have been handled a different way. Some of us already know that no live-streaming is allowed at the meeting and but when they told him to stop live streaming he probably didn’t hear or understand and when everbody just rushed him and told to stop live streaming and get the F××k out and then all of sudden he gets jumped and attacked. He is a student at UMSL college and he has been out there with us protesting on regular nights.

Some of us know who he is, his name is Chris Schaefer, and NO, he’s not working with the police, he is on our side. But like I said again, for some of yall to just attack him having him, running down Chambers St towards West Florissant to the Walgreens scared for his life and he steady screaming crying and flagging down cars asking for help, but he only gets help when he runs inside the Walgreens, that was wrong and F××ked up it really was he was they took him to the hospital by ambulance to be treated for injuries. That’s making us look bad, the ones that come out to protest peacefully, smh, and he is white but that don’t mean to attack him like that! We have supporters of all races!

Ferguson protester Bassem Masri tweeted that Schaefer’s race had nothing to do with the attack, just that he (allegedly) refused to stop his recording.
