VIDEO: Mob Shoots Fireworks At Cops Helping People With Hands 'Blown Off'

Pulaski County deputies were attacked with fireworks during a chaotic Fourth of July gathering.

College Station, AR – An unruly crowd launched fireworks at Pulaski County deputies and ambulances during a chaotic “fireworks war” on Thursday night (video below).

At least five people blew off hands and fingers during the incident, and 12 people were arrested, KARK reported.

“People were coming up to us with missing fingers and hands blown off,” the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) said. “When we were trying to put tourniquets on someone that had missing fingers, they were throwing fireworks.”

PCSO Lieutenant Cody Burk said that as many as 300 people were gathered in the area when the chaos erupted, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported.

Two PCSO suffered minor burns during the mayhem.

“Oh [expletive] – that’s the police they’re shooting at,” a bystander said in a cell phone video that was later shared online.

Exploding fireworks were detonated near groups of people, and deputies walked calmly through the smoke as they tried to restore order, the video showed.

Fireworks were set off right in front of patrol vehicles, and many exploded within feet of the deputies.

As one deputy was taking a man into custody, a woman suddenly began screaming for everyone to “watch out!”

Smoke filled the air as people ran for cover amid the sirens and explosions.

As two deputies took off running after a fleeing suspect, another firework exploded in the opposite direction.

There were so many fireworks being shot at police and ambulances that first responders could no longer drive into the area, Lt. Burk told the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

As a result, deputies had to rush people with missing fingers and hands to medics who were staged blocks away.

Deputies arrested a dozen people on a myriad of charges ranging from aggravated assault and assault on a peace office officer to fleeing and drug possession, KARK reported.

College Station residents claimed that a majority of the people who were participating in the “fireworks war” were teens from outside the area.

It's time to stand down, let them do themselves in and be done with it. They're so stupid they can't see that they're going to kill themselves off. You can't fix stupid. If the cops don't show up then they can't be blamed for hurting anyone and then there won't be a payoff in the ghetto lottery. So sick of it, so sick of having the police targets of shootings or whatever else happens to them. They don't deserve it. God protect them.......

Nuff said.

When is this crap gonna end? When are leaders going to say enough is enough and go back to the way attacks / assaults on police officers would have been handled back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s? Bring out tear gas and batons and this shit would end quickly. Very obviously our political leaders couldn’t care less about the welfare of our cops (and as a direct result, the officers families). The politicians would rather suck up to the thugs (ex. South Bend, Indiana mayor) than back up our cops.

When these idols blow off their own hands and fingers, let them seek out their own medical care instead of the police force trying to help them and putting their own lives in danger!

Yes, they were all black people. Yes they were prone to violence with the intent to hurt other black people. If course they turned on the police who were there to save the lives of those who were injured while trying to injure other black people. Yes this is starkly reminiscent of neighboring village feuds in North Africa. Their moral leaders are teaching segregation and hate in America.

It’s a shame that these thugs that keep doing the same old stupid shit are giving so many good hard working law abiding black folks a bad name. We all need to remember that these people represent themselves and not all blacks. We can not continue to judge ALL. This goes for all race and Leo’s the same. Thank God that there are still WAY more better people than the bad ones, so let’s keep it that way.

And if one of these 13% got shot because of this, they would have went all Planet of the Apes. Life without them would be awesome. Sorry if you think i'm being racist. I call it being a realist.

Probably most of the ones who sustained hand and finger damage were trying to throw the fireworks. Karma is a bitch.

Those who were injured by their own stupidity will probably end up trying to sue first responders and the city because they lost hands/fingers. All of the first responders should have just left the area and let them bleed citing the area was unsafe to enter because of the ignorant POS throwing fireworks at them.

You're a Moron, These pricks don't have enough sense to be allowed to do crap. I wish the officers had pulled out 37 MM teargas guns and fired some real fireworks back. This has got to stop NOW. I had a medical emergency a few weeks back and was shocked when EMS was transporting me to see they were wearing Body Armor. These animals are not only attacking police officers. But EMS and fire fighters. The very people who show up no matter how bad things are. And these assholes attack them as crowds cheer them on. And there seems to mostly be one segment of the population who are always involved.

I am going to assume for a moment, that you meant this comment as being ironical with a sprinkling of sarcasm... In that case, it's funny. If you were at all serious about that statement, let me bring to light some information you may be missing, in case you ever do figure out a ballot or even the curtain on a voting booth... These acts are only on the scale of which they are currently on, due to the selflessness and bravery of the first responders keeping this behavior in check. At the current rate of escalation, and liberal disarming of the Law Enforcement community, you will be seeing this behavior in your streets and in your home within your lifetime... Much like the US military fighting overseas and keeping the fight over there, our LE officers are doing much the same thing in our streets and communities. If you and the liberal elite continue on this reckless and dangerous false narrative against the Law Enforcement community, the end result will be irrevocable and calamitous. Please, I emplore all Liberal minded adults to try to see the big picture here, it's not about the past anymore, it's about the future for our children and the world we want them to have to live in because of our mistakes...
