This one isn’t even close.
Mob riots have exploded in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, with false rumors sweeping over the community hours after an aggressive man wielding a knife was shot by a police officer after attacking him.
An area prosecutor is stating that the shooting is being investigated, but the video footage paints a clear cut picture of events, showing a man aggressively rushing a police officer with a knife.

“A police-involved shooting has significant impact on a community, as we are seeing with the large number of individuals gathering in the streets,” District Attorney Heather Adams said Sunday night. “However, I am asking that all reaction be tempered as the investigation is ongoing.”
Criminal mobs took to the streets in what seemed like an instant reaction to the shooting. They were seen engaging in violence outside of Lancaster’s police station.
