“an investigation of the 574 violent riots in 2020 that included looting, property damage, injuries to 2000 police officers, and to determine if participants communicated across state lines”
The National Police Association wants Republicans to investigate the BLM/Antifa riots of 2020 if they retake control of Congress. It’s an excellent idea and would be good for the country.
People who participated on January 6th have been punished extremely harshly while the left has skated after riots that went on for months and caused billions in damage and multiple deaths.
.@GOPLeader Renewing our request, based on our @Rasmussen_Poll for an investigation of the 574 violent riots in 2020 that included looting, property damage, injuries to 2000 police officers, and to determine if participants communicated across state lines. https://t.co/aDQjyKh5qS pic.twitter.com/JxLiQPbEpL

Republican leaders should listen to this:
Most Voters Want Congress to Investigate the 574 Violent Riots in 2020 that resulted in over 2,000 injured police officers as well as the January 6th riot at the US Capitol
A new national telephone and online survey taken by Rasmussen Reports, sponsored by the National Police Association, finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress should investigate the violent riots that engulfed the United States in 2020. Twenty one percent (21%) say no. Thirteen (13%) are not sure.
Additionally, the poll found a majority of likely voters believe:
- Congress should award medals to the law enforcement agencies that defended their cities from violent looters and rioters in 2020 similar to the awards proposed by Nancy Pelosi for the Capitol Police.
- Participants in the nationwide 2020 rioting and looting should be criminally charged as well as those who took part in the January 6th riots.
- Elected officials who downplay the nationwide 2020 rioting and looting deserve to be criticized.
- President Biden and Vice President Harris should meet with the family of St. Louis Police Captain David Dorn, who was murdered in 2020 when protecting his friend’s business from looters, just as they did with the family of George Floyd.
- Patriots and supporters of law enforcement should be able to display the U.S. Flag and the Thin Blue Line flags as symbols of support and patriotism.
- Refusing to prosecute trespassing, shoplifting, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, receiving stolen property, breaking and entering, resisting arrest and other ‘quality of life’ crimes is likely to increase the commission of those crimes
- Young people should be taught to comply with police rather than resist or flee arrest.
When the mayors of cities in which violent riots took place in 2020 refused to let police immediately stop the crimes taking place, it sent a message to violent criminals across the nation that crimes will be allowed and criminals won’t be touched.
It’ll be fun to watch Biden, and other Democrats denounce this after spending two years talking about threats to our democracy.
It looks like Marco Rubio might be on board.
WCIV News reports:
Fact Check Team: Sen. Marco Rubio calls for investigation into 2020 protests
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is up for reelection this cycle and is calling for an investigation into the protests of the summer of 2020.
He says if Republicans win control of Congress, they will work to launch investigations into the protests the nation saw in the summer of 2020 following the fatal police shooting of Breonna Taylor and the murder of George Floyd.
Members of the GOP are comparing this to the Jan. 6 House committee’s investigation into the Capitol riots. The National Desk’s Fact Check Team is exploring what’s behind Rubio’s calls and what it could mean for protestors.
Rubio says there has been no accountability for who was behind them and “how much political rhetoric lent itself to it.”
Democrats set a precedent for this with the January 6th Committee.
