This has been a sad week for America.

A Dallas mob attacked a machete-wielding man in the Victory Park area late Saturday.

The scene was captured on video that went viral on social media as riots, looting and mayhem took hold in cities across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death while in custody of Minneapolis police.

The attack happened in the 2200 block of North Lamar Street near the House of Blues, just a few blocks south of American Airlines Center. The man confronted protesters wielding a machete, police said, to “allegedly protect his neighborhood from protesters,” according to KTVT/Channel 11.
