The event was planned as a happy celebration of the Juneteenth holiday, which officially became a national holiday to recognize the end of slavery when President Biden signed it into law on Thursday.
The celebration, however, quickly dissolved into a violent riot, prompting police to lock down the area as families reported children locked in businesses with no safe way of escape.
Numerous fights broke out, and in one case, the savage beating of the white woman was caught on video.
In video posted to social media, chaos erupts and multiple fights break out in Pier Village.
One woman, who was white, was savagely attacked by multiple black men and women. The woman eventually bends down, unable to protect herself as the rioters struck her repeatedly.

Many other rioters stood around the scene, cheering on the attack.
One man can be heard on the video sarcastically shouting, “Say my name” as the woman is beaten. The phrase is a common battle cry for “social justice” protesters.
Eventually, the police arrive and form a ring of protection around the woman.
During the rioting, a bulletin from the Ocean County Scanner warned people to avoid the area:
“Police have area locked down due to riots in the area. Parents are reporting their children are locked in businesses they work in with no way out. Reports of police in riot gear trying to control the scene. Numerous fights involving police, and vandalism. Avoid the area.”
Other videos posted to social media depicted a scene of violence, as rioters ravaged the city, oftentimes standing atop vehicles and dancing.
Police called in reinforcements from surrounding agencies and the state police, and eventually calm was restored to the area. Police have released a number of arrests made during the violence.
The Juneteenth celebration, held in Long Branch’s Pier Village, devolved into a full-scale riot with attendees turning on their host city and smashing up businesses and property throughout the Pier Village area. Nothing good, ever comes from race baiting. https://t.co/fM3Eeb9Neu

The assault victim’s name and condition have not been released.
The incident has not been reported on by the mainstream media, who often ignores violence caused by the black community since the “racially justice” protests and riots broke out in the summer of 2020.
Juneteenth has gained prominence in the past year, as demonstrations and riots followed the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Former officer Derek Chauvin has been convicted of the murder of the black man.

As he signed the law-making Juneteenth a federal holiday, President Biden mentioned historical violence against the black community and said that the holiday calls for action:
“That’s why we must understand that Juneteenth represents not only the commemoration of the end of slavery in America more than 150 years ago, but the ongoing work to have to bring true equity and racial justice into American society, which we can do.
“In short, this day doesn’t just celebrate the past; it calls for action today.”
The President did not mention the black-on-black crime epidemic surging across the country and has not called for an end to the violence being spread across American cities in the name of “racial justice.’

Police shred PA Democrat governor after he repeats myth of systemic racism by cops in Juneteenth proclamation
May 18, 2021
The following article contains editorial content written by a retired Chief of Police and current staff writer for Law Enforcement Today.
HARRISBURG, PA- In yet another slam on police by a Democrat politician, the latest insult comes to us from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, where Gov. Tom Wolf just slapped police in his state squarely across the face in a letter to state employees regarding the newest excuse for municipal employees to get a day off, the so-called “Juneteenth holiday,” ABC-27 News reported.
Wolf wrote to employees designating Friday, June 18 as a special holiday for state employees. This was done of course because the actual date of “Juneteenth” is the 19th of June, which falls on a Saturday this year. Since state employees must get a day off to “celebrate,” Wolf moved the “official” date back to the 18th.
Within his letter, he called attention to the day, touting the “progress” the country has made as a nation toward equality and justice for all citizens.
Then, he went straight off the rails, speaking to “the continued death of African Americans at the hands of police,” and then transitioned to attacks against Asian Americans, which he conveniently failed to note occur mostly at the hands of the aforementioned African Americans.
“Juneteenth is a celebration of the progress we have made as a nation towards equality and justice for all. Sadly, the continued death of African Americans at the hands of police and rise in violent attacks against Asian Americans are painful reminders that racism and intolerance are still with us today. This Juneteenth we have an opportunity to unite against injustice and create lasting change that will make Pennsylvania and our nation a better place for everyone.”
Where to start? How about Philadelphia? According to Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw, 103 people have been murdered so far in the “City of Brotherly Love” thus far in 2021, an increase of more than 30 percent over last year, same time period.
“Only” 412 people have been shot citywide this year, according to the New York Post.
Out of those 103 homicide victims, 13 were children, 12 fatally shot. But hey, Philadelphia isn’t the biggest craphole in the country. That honor still belongs to Chicago. A majority of those killed have been blacks killed by other blacks.
Not one unarmed black man has been killed by a Philadelphia police officer so far in 2021.
But that’s ok. District Attorney Larry Krasner is up for re-election this week. His claim to fame? Pretty much releasing everyone who’s arrested in the city, including those charged with gun crimes. It’s pretty easy to figure out why crime is out of control in Philadelphia.
It’s easy for Wolf to blame police for the ills of the black community. That’s become something of a sport among Democrats, with Joe Biden taking the occasion last week of National Police Week and Law Officer’s Memorial Day to slam police officers as being racist mercenaries intent on destroying the black race. Not in so many words, of course but the point was made…and taken by police officers across the country.
In response to Wolf’s brain-dead comment on Monday, David Kennedy, President of the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association blasted Wolf in a statement, saying Wolf had insulted his officers in the missive he wrote.
Kennedy noted that Wolf had cherry-picked a few examples of so-called police brutality to insult all police officers across the Keystone State.
“Let me be clear: Pennsylvania state troopers support the Juneteenth holiday. But for Gov. Wolf to use his platform to further push a false narrative that police are racist murderers is nothing less than the worst kind of political pandering. It only serves to further divide our nation at the expense of officers who already work incredibly dangerous jobs,” Kennedy wrote in his response.
“And to do it during National Police Week is nothing less than symbolically spitting in the faces of all police officer and troopers who have given everything. And for the families, this insult rips open a fresh wound.”
Kennedy also slammed Wolf for failing to provide troopers with PPE during the pandemic, being told they weren’t available even while there was a growing stockpile of masks at the Farm Show Complex.
Kennedy also slammed Wolf in March, calling on the feckless governor to prioritize state troopers and other first responders for coronavirus vaccinations, Fox News reported.
“Gov. Wolf, you owe all law enforcement officers, troopers and their loved ones an apology. A real apology,” Kennedy said.
Kennedy also took aim at the explosion of violent crime in Philadelphia, noting the above statistics.
He also noted that it is projected police will probably make 3,000 arrests for illegal guns, however people are not likely to be convicted. He said Philadelphia police refer to it as a “revolving door” for repeat gun offenders.
When speaking of unnecessary deaths, especially caused by incompetence, Wolf should look in the mirror. According to CBS Philly, nursing home deaths from COVID-19 in Pennsylvania accounted for over 65% of the total deaths. Just as New York did, Pennsylvania put COVID-positive patients into nursing homes and long-term care facilities.
Former Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Rachel Levine, who used to be a guy famously removed her/his mother from a nursing home and into a private facility just prior to COVID-positive patients being placed in nursing homes. Levine was rewarded for that by receiving an appointment in the Biden administration. Guess crime pays.
Wolf’s statement is just another in a long line of pandering Democrats throwing police under the bus to perpetuate the false narrative of police shooting unarmed black men indiscriminately, despite clear and overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
