A man was attacked by a group of men after they had reportedly cut the line at a Klein, Texas convenience store. The men reportedly shouted “Black Lives Matter” during the incident.
The surveillance footage shows the man walking in the parking lot before he was approached by a group who began striking and kicking the man who was outnumbered in the cowardly six-on-one attack.
The 24-year-old recalled that he was waiting in line when the group cut in front of him. The victim and his girlfriend wished to remain unnamed for their safety.
“I looked over and said, ‘There’s a line for a reason,'” he said.
“I don’t know what else I could do,” he added. “The fifth one at the end came out of the store after purchasing goods, and came up to me and kicked me in the face and said, ‘Black Lives Matter, [expletive].'”
The victim, who suffered cuts and bruises in the assault, also told how they mocked him and his hair in the store when he reminded them to queue.
A Facebook post from Mark Herman, Harris County Constable Precinct 4, read:

According to ABC13, his girlfriend said, “I really hope they’re caught before someone else gets hurt.”
She added, “I hope that the people take this and don’t say, ‘It’s white against black.’ I don’t want this to be the statement. I want it to be, here’s a man who was checking out and stood up for himself and he was targeted for that.'”
The viral video was picked up by Fox News, who reported that the unnamed victim was carrying grocery bags to a parking lot at a Harris County Exxon gas station convenience store around 7 p.m. on Sunday.
Violence following the recent rioting appears to be on the rise as violent videos appear on a daily basis on social media.
Yesterday, National File reported on a man who struck a 92-year-old woman in a random attack, almost causing devastating injuries as she nearly hit a fire hydrant with her head.
