Riots Continue in Cities Across the Country

Riots Continue in Cities Across the Country

As Democrat leaders do nothing to protect their cities, Trump vows to stop the madness

https://youtu.be/bWQTv4v3aDI

Riots marked by violence, looting, and property destruction continued overnight in cities across the nation.

It is stunning to see Democrat cities overrun by rioting mobs as city officials do nothing to stop it.  It’s like they learned nothing from the Ferguson and Baltimore riots and didn’t even plan for future such events.

President Trump issued a warning to those organizing and traveling across state lines to agitate violence.

On Saturday, President Trump addressed the rioting and noted that George Floyd is being dishonored by the rioting purportedly in his name.

“I understand the pain that people are feeling. We support the right of peaceful protesters and we hear their pleas. But what we are now seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or with peace,” Trump continued. “The memory of George Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists.”

. . . . “No one is more upset than fellow law enforcement officers by the small handful who fail to abide by their oath to serve and protect,” Trump said.

“In America justice is never achieved at the hand of an angry mob. I will not allow angry mobs to dominate,” Trump said, declaring it “essential” that the “rule of law” and independent justice system be protected.

Watch his full remarks:

The rioting and chaos ensued overnight in cities across the nation.

The Washington Post reports:

Officials across America were responding to another night of escalating unrest after clashes erupted between protesters and police in dozens of cities Saturday. Tensions flared in cities from New York to Philadelphia to Columbia, S.C., as thousands of people amassed to protest the death of a black man in police custody.

Police cars were set aflame, freeways were blocked, windows were shattered and authorities deployed tear gas and even rubber bullets. Multiple governors activated the National Guard and curfews were enacted in several major cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Louisville, Denver, Miami and Milwaukee.

. . . . New York City looked like a war zone with nearly two dozen torched police vehicles resulting in dozens of arrests. People defied curfews in cities across the country and experienced looting, break-ins and arson. In Philadelphia, demonstrators broke into a store near city hall and attempted to tear down the statue of a former mayor.

A store owner in Dallas was alleging attempting to protect his business with a blade weapon of some kind, and a mob descended on him, leaving  him crumpled and motionless in the street.

The Daily Mail reports:

Rioters last night hurled rocks at a business owner who was allegedly trying to defend his store with a sword before he was brutally beaten unconscious in Dallas.

The victim was stable, police said, after the man was seen slumped over in the street with blood pouring from gashes on his head in the Victory Park area of the city.

Footage shows the alleged store owner wielding a long blade and rushing towards a few rioters. Within seconds, a furious mob descends on the man, hurling rocks at him, kicking him in the head and beating his face with skateboards and fists.

Dallas Police said the man had taken up arms against the rioters to ‘allegedly protect his neighborhood from protesters.’

. . . . The victim’s body was mangled by the stomping and kicking of the mob, but he was able to sit up later and was seen holding his hand to his head before being taken in an ambulance.

The following video is absolutely horrifying—despite the text in this tweet and as noted above, it is being reported that the man survived this vicious mob beating.

Violence is rocking American cities.

https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1266877271865987072

Black leaders are speaking out against antifa inciting violence by black people, including children.

Good things are happening.

People are outraged.

It’s unclear what the endgame or goal is of those organizing and inciting violence, but one thing has long been true in American history and will remain true now: rioting makes Americans more conservative.

I do not know what the law says about people who try to destroy the society and its law. Lawyers here probably do know.

To me, it seems at least arguable that people who try to destroy the law should not get the protection of the law, notwithstanding the noble sentiments of “A Man for All Seasons.” Our problem is not “the Devil himself,” at least not directly. Our problem is an organized group of people who believe that America is evil and must be destroyed by any means necessary. They really do believe in what they’re doing, so they will not stop until they *are* stopped.

The question at issue is whether or not they can be stopped while observing all the customary legal rules that were made for normal interactions between loyal citizens in peacetime.

I do not know the answer, either in fact or in law. I would be interested to learn what others have to say about it.

    Here’s your answer: it’s all illegal, from the street sh*t doing the acts, all the way up to the people funding it. The high crimes are punishable by death.

    From the standpoint of China’s involvment: it is an act of war.

    From the standpoint of former rat AG Sessions: “Nothing to see here, move along.”

    From the standpoint of AG Barr: “Why, there could be something here!…And we wouldn’t want an investigation of high crimes by the prervious administration to interfere with the political process this election…. Yes, I know the same criminals are trying to get back in power. But we’ll investigate later. I dont’ want to get in trouble if Trump loses the election. And obama and clinton are off the hook! (obama and clinton – did you hear that?!)…”

    From the standpoint of a non-lawyer: even a non-lawyer ten year old could see what’s going on here.

Live by the sword, die by the sword.

This is all “get Trump” bullshit, funded by that douche-lord Soros.

Shut it all down hard. Now.

    Maybe the colleges should be shut down permanently.

    Honestly you can learn almost everything that’s taught for free, and there’s plenty of retired professors and instructors that would volunteer to teach, along with new technology that should have been implemented 25 years ago lessening the need for all the hired Democrat Party College administrations to zero.

    Well, soros passed the torch to jeff bezos. Bezos took it and is running.

More talk and no action from Trump! If Federal laws are being violated, then stop blabbering about it and do something about it! God, Trump is turning into your stereotypical Republican!

    gonzotx in reply to MarkS. | May 31, 2020 at 12:53 pm

    I know, stop the stupid tweeting and kick some righteous ass Trump

    I imagine the delay(s) have to do with public education, evidence gathering and to marshal public will.

    Spot an ant on the kitchen counter and kill it, then tomorrow another, and the next day and the next – or – follow one back to the nest and eradicate them all? More simply – give them enough rope …

    Trump is stuck with AG Barr-Boehner at the moment.

There is NO evidence of institutional racism In our police departments.
Blacks are not arrested nor killed in a greater number than whites, based on felonies committed.
The entire premise is invalidated by DOJ and FBI statistics.

In this case we have Floyd, a felon who recently spent 5 years in prison for a home invasion and armed robbery. Floyd resisted arrest, was likely intoxicated and unfortunately died during his arrest.
The preliminary autopsy report showed that Floyd had multiple heart problems and did NOT show any signs that his blood flow or airway was cut off. In other words, the knee on the neck likely had nothing to do with his death.

I do find it disturbing that the police did not show concern or attempt to assist Floyd when he was in distress and unconscious, but that is not murder, nor reason the burn down the nation based on a fallacy of racism.

    I was a cop for 20 years. Color was never an issue. Gender was never an issue. There was a brotherhood of blue.

    This is all propaganda.
    Funny how only criminals get into this kind of trouble.

    Next thing you know, prisoners being put to death will start suing because the process is dangerous to their health.

    “I do find it disturbing that the police did not show concern or attempt to assist Floyd ”

    Think about the nature of the people police must constantly deal with. How many lie about their medical state, only to restart their aggression? Floyd was scum, a parasite on society. He was no better than Thugvon Martin, Michael Brown and a very long list of others. He probably knew he had heart problems, yet he decided to fight police. I predict that this will be another example of receiving lawful justice. And, I am sick of seeing productive people’s lives turned upside down based an bald faced lies.

      I think that there are instances when police need to pay attention. If someone says, “I can’t breathe,” officers must believe it and take immediate action, whatever that entails (lifting pressure from a hold, calling a bus, whatever). It’s not hard. Yes, some people may be faking it and say that to get some room, but what the heck was Floyd going to do? He was face down, cuffed, and surrounded by police officers. He wasn’t going to overpower them or in any way threaten them at that point.

      I’m a conservative to my Tea Party core who was raised to respect and honor police officers, but I’ve also had a heart attack, and I know what it feels like to not be able to breathe even if you look perfectly normal on the outside and can still speak. Police have to be able to weigh situations and act accordingly, and if that means lifting pressure from an already cuffed and prone guy surrounded by cops, then . . . um, why not? He might have fought being put in the car, but he wasn’t fighting at the end. Officers must be able to switch gears quickly and assess changing circumstances, and if they cannot, they cannot operate effectively.

      Should Floyd have done as he was told, well, yes, of course, but once he was subdued and completely in police control, the threat was gone. Once he said he needed medical assistance (“I can’t breathe”), he should have been granted that immediately (removal of pressure, EMT care, whatever). He wasn’t stopped for mass murder, and he was not armed; he was stopped for possibly passing a fake $20 at the corner store (a bill we don’t yet know was even counterfeit and that if it was he may not have even known was counterfeit when he tried to spend it). This should not have happened.

        Subotai Bahadur in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | May 31, 2020 at 6:42 pm

        I was a Peace Officer for 28 years, so if I may I will add some nuance to your statements. A suspect will commonly complain about not being able to breathe, even if there is no pressure on the neck. It is a ruse to try to get loose and run. The general rule of thumb IS that if they can say they can’t breathe, they are breathing. Further, a knee on the side of the neck to restrain while you or another officer are putting on the cuffs is a normal and acceptable tactic in most departments so long as you are not putting full pressure. One does not want to break the neck.

        HOWEVER, once the person is cuffed the knee comes off the neck. If they keep trying to get up and run [and noting that they had 4 “officers” throughout the whole restraint] put the subject face down, cuffed in back. Bend the knees, crossing the legs at the ankle and maintain pressure on the ankles and they are restrained until transport. One officer can do it, it is better with two. With 4 there is no excuse.

        From what I have read of the autopsy report, and noting that like everything from the Minneapolis city government and police force as demonstrated by previous events it is likely a lie. Compression of the carotid artery could have a fatal effect like the old and now banned “sleeper hold”. I would like to see either the full autopsy report, or the one the family is likely to have done.

        Subotai Bahadur

          Thanks for that, Subotai Bahadur. I do still think that when there is no conceivable danger, it’s best to err on the side of caution in terms of protecting the suspect, but I am not and have never been in law enforcement nor had my life on the line in that way. I appreciate your measured response and insight.

          Two things, here.

          Fuzzy, we have no idea when the ambulance was called to assist Floyd. So, it is possible that it was called shortly after Floyd complained of breathing difficulty. The optics of Chauvin with his knee on Floyd’s neck are horrible, but nothing in the video proves that it caused Floyd’s distress. And, Floyd resisted being placed in the police vehicle, for transport, after his arrest.

          Subotai, no restraint, above the shoulders is acceptable under current police doctrines. The reason for that is because it is simply too easy to cause serious or fatal injury to that portion of the body. A baton strike to the neck or head is considered deadly force, under case law in most states. And, placing a knee on the side of a person’s neck, while they are supine, is a very dangerous maneuver, as slipping can drop most of the officer’s weight onto a small point on the arrestee’s neck. having 4 officer’s on scene, it would have been a relatively simple matter to secure Floyd’s legs and load him into the police vehicle. However, we have heard nothing of the accounts given by the officers involved. We do not know why they removed him from the vehicle, when they had him mostly inside. It may well have been to place him in a supine position to await medical assistance. If he was moving around on the ground, the knee might have been used to control his rolling. Though there were other, less risky means available, using the technique applied was not necessarily detrimental. We just do not know.

          As to the autopsy being a lie, I seriously doubt that. In the first place, stating that there was no evidence of asphyxiation or strangulation would actually make it harder to charge Chauvin. And, the city government really wanted to charge him with Floyd’s death. Also, as it appeared, from the video, that pressure to Floyd’s carotid artery was most likely the cause of his death, the ME would look for specific evidence to support that. When death is caused by compression of the carotid artery, a rather unique pattern of cerebral hemorrhaging is produced. The ME would most likely have found such hemorrhaging, if it were present, and noted it. So, I think that we will find that the ME’s initial findings were accurate and that Floyd’s demise was the result of natural causes, not the actions of Chauvin or the other officers present on scene.

          Based solely upon the optics of a single video, almost everyone jumped to the conclusion that the actions of Officer Chauvin were directly responsible for the death of George Floyd. And even after the release of the initial autopsy findings, the media, politicians and other talking heads are still stating, categorically, that Floyd was killed by police actions, not his underlying medical conditions. There is a system in place to investigate potential crimes. And, it was not followed in the Floyd case, at all.

Defended business with edged weapon against a mob. That didn’t end well. Desperation writ large. The crowd only cares if they can get killed and how many. Gee… a standard capacity magazine fed rifle might do the trick .., like the “patrol rifles” cops have but don’t use… like now. Why arm the cops now if they can’t or won’t use them? A loudspeaker with good sayings is all they go for. Wars often need fighting to avoid bigger wars.

Look at the freaking map

What more do you need Trump?

Pritzker in Illinois and Lightfoot in Chicago evidently consider ‘protesting’ to be an essential activity. So essential that social distancing is not required. Neither is doing anything to enforce their stay-at-home and social distancing edicts when it comes to ‘protesters’.

However, all those churches in Illinois better not allow more than 50 people inside. Else the full force of the government will come down on them.

AMERICAN THINKER

Unmasking the Illegalities of the Obama Administration
By Janice Shaw Crouse

Well informed citizens have been rocked by revelations from recently unclassified documents that clearly show that President Obama “was aware of the details of wiretapped conversations of then-incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016.” Further, there’s a long list of Democrat dignitaries who are also part of the unprecedented spying on an opposition party in an attempt to influence a presidential election and then undermine the duly elected president. The really pivotal fact, however, is that “Obama’s knowledge of Flynn being wiretapped raises significant questions about what Obama knew and when he knew it with regard to the attempt to railroad Flynn and prevent him from serving as Trump’s national security advisor.”

This morning the Pastor Mayor of Little Rock gave a sermon press conference. Some of his homily speech is as follows:

“… we thank you for the men and women who peacefully protested last night. we thank you for the men and the women of the LR police department who peacefully watched and stood by and monitored and ensured that there were community policing abide[?]. And we thank you Lord God that even though there times things got a little strained that we were able to wake up this morning without major damage, without major injury and that those that peacefully protest were able to go home in their dwelling place. So we thank you and we acknowledge Lord God that there is still work to do, and through that work we will continue to unite this city. and we hope and know that through you and all the others who have respective faiths that we are working together in one accord to heal our land to focus on a universal language of justice which we all seek, together, Amen.

Today we are hear to provide a clear assessment of what took place yesterday, and Chief Humphrey will answer many questions about the specific details of the LR Police Department’s response. Several protests throughout yesterday were peaceful, and I will continue to stress how proud I am of the residents of LR that walked the streets, and even walked the interstate in a peaceful manner and they were protected by the men and women of the LR Police Department acknowledging that they were exhibiting their first amendment rights based on peace, and yet while some may disagree with what transpired that we …”

and I couldn’t take it anymore.

Does the 1st Amendment grant people to peacefully assemble why denying others the right to freely travel? On an Interstate highway? I am sick and tired of politicians making their own rules. I’m tankful there was no violence in our city, but you can’t give people your blessing for interfering with other people’s right to carry on unimpeded.

Here’s the Pastor’s Mayor’s sermon press conference… https://youtu.be/CdPodhJkstE

Political perspective on the riots:

IMO, PDJT won reelection on Saturday. Why? Suburban women tend to lean center left while suburban men lean center right. Coupled with the independent voters who tend to be swayed depending on the issues of the day.

All of these voters are invested in the idea of the U.S. as a functioning republic where civic norms are followed. To put it another way ‘they just aren’t into riots’. The scale of this is driving them away from those d who seem to side with the forces of anarchy.

As long as PDJT can simply resist the urge to take over from these incompetent d governors and mayors while simultaneously providing resources to them in terms of material support, encouraging the NG authorizations by the governors, then he wins.

If he takes over and federalize the NG, then he is the one who will take the blame for not restoring order. My advice to him would be to resist that urge. If a governor asks the Fed’s to take over that is ok, he can’t refuse.

IMO, these riots will not burn themselves out. In normal times folks have to go to work on Monday so riots last 3-4 days. Most of the more destructive riots are occurring in blue states in blue cities that are still under covid lockdown: Minneapolis, LA, NYC, etc.

These folks do not have a job to go to on Monday. My guess is that, unless the PD and NG can contain the riots to areas already burned, looted damaged that the riots will attempt to move outside of those areas. As long as there is ‘fresh ground’ available to riot in they will continue. We have already seen coordination in place among the anarchist to do this.

    Any hint of this moving toward the suburbs and the country might get a lot redder. However, Trump can’t just sit on his behind pontificating. He needs to go after the people and money at the top of the Antifa pyramid and fire anyone who does not deliver info ASAP.

      CommoChief in reply to jb4. | June 1, 2020 at 9:27 am

      jb4,

      IMO every vote that PDJT could have persuaded to him in November on a order v disorder message has been persuaded by these riots. He simply needs to have the DoJ making arrests for whatever federal crimes committed directly or indirectly related to the riots.

      If a particular state won’t or can’t restore order then he can step in. However, IMO this is a double edged sword. He will serve as a lightening rod to the anarchist groups who will descend on that state should PDJT step in and assume federal control of the response.

      These anarchists will do their best to extend the disorder to publicly embarrass the administration. The MSM will play up the PDJT is an authoritarian fascist propaganda. Every mistake made he will own.

      IMO, the better course would be to continue to support the governors, urge them to use the NG, authorize funding for the NG, etc. Use federal Intel resources and the DOJ to bring federal charges when possible for every actor directly or indirectly involved in the anarchy.
