Violence has erupted across the country.
Minneapolis is burning to the ground.
Georgia, California, Kentucky, and Colorado are also seeing destruction and violence. The White House is even under threat from some protesters.
Now, protests are planned this weekend in both Seattle and Portland.
Portland has already started to see violence with a protest taking place last night.
In previous years both cities have seen their fair share of Antifa thugs who have destroyed property and attacked innocent bystanders. It is hard to imagine that they won’t look to do so again.
Images and videos out of Minneapolis and across the country and shocking to Americans.
Many Americans across the country are furious about the death of George Floyd. Floyd died while in police custody and his death sparked protests nationwide.
Unfortunately, the protests have turned into violence and destruction of property in a number of states.
Derek Chauvin, the officer accused of killing George Floyd, has been arrested and charged with murder.
However, his arrest is unlikely to quell the riots taking place.
Several places of protest are planned in Seattle this weekend and organizers are calling for them to be peaceful. Given some of the radical leftists in Seattle, it’s unlikely that it will remain that way for long.
It’s unfortunate that a justified protest against the police officer who killed Mr. Floyd is being used by some as a reason to destroy property and harm others. None of the stores being destroyed had anything to do Mr. Floyd’s death.
Mr. Floyd’s family has spoken out against the destruction of Minneapolis.
“We cannot endanger each other as we respond to the necessary urge to raise our voices in unison and outrage.
Waking up this morning to see Minneapolis on fire would be something that would devastate Floyd.”
While violence and destruction of property is expected in Seattle and Portland, it is unlikely that such violence will take place in Montana, Idaho, or Wyoming.
Gun control advocates often ask why anyone would need a 30-round magazine. Now they know.
