Violence erupted during the June 13th protests in London as protestors for Black Lives Matter met with far-right groups. When Hutchinson saw a man in a fetal position guarding himself from blows, he immediately thought of bringing this man to safety with the help of his friends. “I am carrying him, my friends are protecting myself and the man on my shoulder. He was still receiving blows, you can feel people trying to hit him,” Hutchinson told CNN, “we are all one race.” Hutchinson paid no regard to the man’s political stance or the color of his skin.
