    Lol they’re burying themselves and soon they won’t have any support at all. Even the people they’ve managed to trick into believing in their campaign will be able to see the truth the way their going.

    Some of those businesses will either permanently close, or relocate to less risky areas, taking the business and jobs elsewhere. To put it another way, by trashing the city, these idiotic protesters criminals are destroying their own community and future. Anyway, looking on the bright side, stuff like this will probably result in another million or so votes for politicians who support the police and maintenance of law and order.

    Interesting!

    It hit me yesterday why many would turn (or return for some) to crime lately.

    2 bad things -- the combination of both together -- for more individuals to do looting or turn to drug dealing and the associated gang shootings.

    1) Unemployment and no easy way to get chosen for a job hire

    Together with

    2) an idea or feeling that society is prejudiced and preventing one from being able to make a living.


    And, lately both factors have risen a lot as unemployment is up a lot, and a large part of the population also feels profoundly discriminated against because of the 2020 videos of apparently racist policing incidents.

    So, the combination -- actual unemployment combined with the idea of prejudice -- that combination has risen a lot lately!

    You have a point. The 10 Commandments of course say otherwise. I think that is one reason why these thugs are looting-they thinking they are entitled. That is not the proper channel for reform. It's just an eye for an eye. What worries me is as this movement continues across the country it's going to entice the next group of thugs to come out armed to save the country from disintegrating.

    That's absurd. This is why the progressive left looks nuts to so many people.
