By now, anyone with a grain of common sense realizes that what is taking place is an organized effort to disrupt and is more than a protest against police brutality. Call it Antifa or by any other name for a similar group but it still amounts to a political agenda. People from other areas than the ones where the protest is taking place are being sent in to rile the mobs based on arrests made. Whites are defacing to the extent that blacks try to stop them so they won't be blamed. Hollywood names say they will pay the fines..glorifying the vandals. Trump was vilified in the press for tear gassing a peaceful crowd in DC. In actuality, smoke and pepper spray was used to disperse the protesters just before curfew when they didn't move as directed.
Even Cuomo blasted DiBlasio for letting the crowd get out of control and not bringing in the National Guard. There was an 8:00 pm curfew last nite but it didn't make a difference. Police are showing remarkable restraint, their orders are to standdown, their hands are tied. Thugs are going up to them face to face and spitting on them, they are getting hit with bricks, police cars are set on fire, stores are being broken into and looted. There is no fear because they know they can get away with it.
What could have been a unifying situation because both whites and blacks agreed that the Floyd situation was murder has turned into something else. The sad part is that all the peaceful protesting of what happened is being overlooked due to the anger at what is taking place.
