This needs to stop. The businesses that got looted and destroyed have nothing to do with Floyd.

From what I see. People are taking advantage of this situation.
Peaceful protest is okay. But destroying property and causing damage is not.

Tonight is going to be a buffet for criminal groups in LA. The police are too busy with fires and rioters. Get your criminal friends, back up a truck to your favorite store and start loading up. No one will stop you.

The 1990's had the Rodney King Video, leading to the Reginald Denny Video.

The 2020's now have the George Floyd Video which has lead to the Dallas Riot victim Video.

So very familiar to anyone else who lived here in the early 90's?

I saw on Nextdoor tomorrow 2pm there‚Äôs a protest at Irvine City Hall (sigh).  Also today people were protesting at Irvine Mayors house demanding rent relief. 

The flyer has a fist in the air, nice.  Might want to stay clear of that area (Harvard and Alton) tomorrow.

another protest leads to another riot?  you don't say?

protesters say they shouldn't be lumped in with rioters, yet they're the ones giving them cover.

news flash: if you're protesting, you're part of the problem - whether you like it or not.  if all protests end now, then rioters will easily be controlled.

Back in 92, the rioters were really angry and killed dozens of people including firefighters. The current rioters look like they are just out shopping using the Rodney King Discount.

I've always believed that the economic and psychological damage caused by the lockdowns would greatly increase the threat of massive civil unrest. Note that most of the protesters are not black. The video of Floyd being murdered is the last thing a population traumatized by the lockdown and gripped by fear needs to see.

It is called people are taking advantage of the situation. Where are the leaders in the black and latino community? To say stop the rioting bs!
