Seven Black Lives Matter Protesters who instigated the violence in Oklahoma City after the death of George Floyd have been arrested and charged with terrorism, rioting and assault.
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater brought the charges against the seven individuals and hopes that the strong actions will be a message to future protesters to not take it too far.
“This is not Seattle. We’re not putting up with this lawlessness here.”

If the seven Black Lives Matter Protesters are convicted they face years in prison.
An additional five people were also arrested on Friday for painting murals in downtown Oklahoma City and are being charged with incitement of a riot and interfering with police work.
