Bradley Steyn after being wounded during the #blacklivesmatter protest in Los Angeles
Bradley Steyn was limited to walk back and forth inside his house, nursing serious injuries, he sustained during the George Floyd protest in Los Angeles under the hands of LAPD.
Bradley Steyn is suing the Los Angeles Police Department for police brutality with the help of a top US lawyer.
When he was a teenager in 1988, Bradley Steyn witnessed Barend Strydom, a white supremacist, carrying out a shooting spree at Strijdom Square in Pretoria, killing eight black people and injuring 16 others. In 2018 he narrated the incident of massacre of black people at Strijdom Square, now Lilian Ngoyi Square to City Press, “I gathered my kit bag and ran after him. I wanted to help or do something. I [turned] a corner and [noticed] bloody footsteps. I saw [Strydom] shoot the man three times and he fell on the ground.” and he said, he anger drove to scream at the shooter: “Why are you doing this?”, to which the shooter responded calmly in Afrikaans: “I’m doing this for the future of white South Africa.”
30 years later, he could not stand and watch black people abused in his new found home in America where he works as a security consultant. He joined the protest for the justice of George Floyd slain by racist cops but the protest turned violent and he shot in the groin. Now, he is facing criminal charges of assaulting a police officer and one misdemeanour count of obstructing a police officer during #blacklivesmatter
