Cameraman hit by police on live TV while covering Washington protests

An Australian cameraman was struck by American police on live television while covering protests in Washington DC on Monday.

The incident occurred on air as Channel 7 reporter Amelia Brace was covering protests near the White House during the network's Sunrise morning program.

Police can be seen rushing protesters before a police officer struck cameraman Tim Meyers as Brace shouted "Media!"

At least the Hong Kong police did not attack the camera men from foreign press. Wonderful US police.
The Hong Kong police were too mild with the western media where were there to villify them instead and not to give a true picture of what was happening in Hong Kong.

Disgusting- the Australian reporter and Cameraman should use Government Lawyers to get justice against that police officer - absolutely vile that the police aren’t discriminating against the rioters and the reporters - that’s not right. They can’t expect the news reporters to dress in formal wear and to not dress in sneakers if they are being expected to run away from teargas and stun grenades as well as rubber bullets. Disgusting and I’m so glad I’m not American - they are so feral

Christian Fighter Jet shot down in Paris

Beloved in Christ Jesus the renowned Notre Dame cathedral in Paris was flocked by billions who came in search of peace in Jesus’ name, good news were given repentance, forgiveness, comfort to the orphan, self confidence in the name of Jesus for the past eight hundred and fifty years.
Notre Dame was also like a Father’s house where a mother hugged the sorrows and worries of all the destitute, widows, orphans, the lonely and the hungry who came into that place.
For the past eight hundred and fifty year without any proper security the Cathedral which Stood through floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, battles including world wars 1 & 2 and also withstood onslaught of dictators like Hitler and humbled them has today crumbled down in a fire.
Despite being technologically advanced European nation with a strong armed force, new age medicine and a mighty Christian country France could not protect the Notre Dame Church which was destroyed in fire during the Holy week. This was like a warning to Christians all over the world from Catholic, Pentecostal, protestants who worshipped in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy spirit.
Jesus said “I saw satan fall like a lightning, like wheat separated from chaff satan will remove you from his world, after you being healed will you also heal your brother”
The fall of the Notre Dame Church is a sign of the beginning of a dark chapter for Christians across the globe with persecutions and torments.
As the angel said in the book of revelations that troubles will surround all earthly beings and the fall of the Notre Dame church a sign of the end days. It also sounds like the scream of satan whose number is associated with 666.
While I was watching the spires of the Notre Dame Cathedral plunge down on a news channel I also heard a voice whispering into my right ear saying that this is the beginning of a period of troubles, persecutions and deep darkness for churches across the world.
As a witness to this we also saw the dastardly attack on Churches and Star hotels in Sri Lanka where over 250 mostly Tamil Christians were killed on Easter Sunday.
Tamil Christian Missionaries are only next to the western missionaries in numbers in spreading the Good news in Asia despite life threatening situations and are doing so fearlessly.
It is mostly the Tamil Missionaries who are targeted in situations of religious hatred and attacks.
The anger of the satan whose number is 666 is mainly upon Christians and pounces upon all who carry out the Missionary works of the Church.
The bible says” Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for some one to devour”
The angels said there will be no end to the Lord’ kingdom and despite crushing blow and attacks to put down Christians yet it only made them grow in numbers and strength.
During the 9/11 attacks 4000-8000 Christians were killed but more than 80 million people came to know about Christ and embraced Christianity as per a surveyed information.
Therefore wherever Christians are persecuted more there numbers are only multiplying in large numbers. Jesus said”Only if a wheat falls to the ground and dies will it yield more produce” Therefore do not fall for temptation and be alert and watch & pray. Amen

As a US Army veteran, I'm disgusted by the violence being commited by the radical protestors but also by the police. This is wrong on so many levels. There was no justification for this level of brutality by the police against peaceful protestors & the media. This is getting out of hand, as both sides have committed agregious acts of wanton violence against each other. America is descending into chaos & insanity. Really sad & disturbing to see!
