By Breitbart – 6/26/2020

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis City Council on Friday unanimously approved a radical proposal to change the city charter that would allow the police department to be dismantled, following mass public criticism of law enforcement over the killing of George Floyd.

The 12-0 vote is just the first step in a process that faces significant bureaucratic obstacles to make the November ballot, where the city’s voters would have the final say. And it came amid a spate of recent shootings in Minnesota’s largest city that have heightened many citizens’ concerns about talk of dismantling the department.

The Minneapolis force has come under heavy pressure since Floyd, a Black man in handcuffs, died May 25 after a police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes. Activists had long accused the department of being unable to change a racist and brutal culture, and earlier this month, a majority of the council proclaimed support for dismantling the department.

Doing so would first require amending the city charter. Draft language of the amendment posted online would replace the department with a Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention, “which will have responsibility for public safety services prioritizing a holistic, public health-oriented approach.”

The amendment goes on to say the director of the new agency would have “non-law-enforcement experience in community safety services, including but not limited to public health and/or restorative justice approaches.” It also provides for a division of licensed peace officers, who would answer to the department’s director.

Council members who support the change are looking to seize on a groundswell of support for significant policing changes following Floyd’s death. If they don’t get the charter change on the November ballot, their next chance won’t come until November 2021, they say.

“It is time to make structural change,” Council Member Steve Fletcher said. “It is time to start from scratch and reinvent what public safety looks like.”

The proposed amendment is expected to be approved Friday, but that’s just a first step. It goes then to a policy committee and to the city’s Charter Commission for formal review. The commission’s recommendation doesn’t bind the council, but it takes time.

Barry Clegg, chairman of the Charter Commission, said the process feels rushed.

“As I understand it, they are saying, ‘We are going to have this new department. We don’t know what it’s going to look like yet. We won’t implement this for a year, we’ll figure it out,’” Clegg said. “For myself anyway, I would prefer that we figured it out first, and then voted on it.”

Clegg said that to get the proposed amendment question on the November ballot, it has to be finalized by Aug. 21. He said if the Charter Commission took its final action at its Aug. 5 meeting, there would likely be enough time for it to get passed by the full council, go through a veto period, and then, if vetoed, have time to spare for a possible mayoral veto override. Once on the ballot, the measure would go to voters.

Mayor Jacob Frey doesn’t support abolishing the department, a stance that got him booed off the street by activists who demonstrated outside his house following Floyd’s death and demanded to know where he stood.

Frey expressed concerns about the proposed amendment as currently drafted, including whether the change would eliminate police altogether or allow for a police presence going forward. He also said that when something currently goes wrong, the chief and the mayor are accountable — but under the new plan, accountability would be dispersed among 14 people. Frey also questioned whether policing practices would vary, based on ward or other factors.

“There is a significant lack of clarity. And if I’m seeing a lack of clarity, so are our constituents,” said Frey, who has said he supports deep structural change in the existing department.

Fletcher said under the new agency when someone calls 911, there will always be a response that’s appropriate, including the option for a response by employees authorized to use force. But he said the vast majority of calls that police officers currently take will be answered by employees with different expertise.

Miski Noor, an organizer with Black Visions, criticized the proposed amendment for creating a division of licensed peace officers at all. She said it “would give current and former police way too much power to shape public safety in Minneapolis.”

Steven Belton, president and chief executive of Urban League Twin Cities, said the way some council members went forward without a concrete plan is “irresponsible.”

“The problem that needs to be stated up front, from my perspective, is racism. … I’m not sure what they are trying to fix here,” he said.

Don Blyly, whose beloved science fiction and mystery bookstores were destroyed by arson in the unrest that followed Floyd’s death, said if local leaders do something “sufficiently stupid” when it comes to policing, he won’t reopen in Minneapolis.

“There are legitimate problems with the Minneapolis police, but the way the politicians are going about it is just ridiculous,” Blyly said. “They are pandering to a certain segment of the electorate.”

BLM Leader: “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it”

6/25/2020

Black Lives Matter leader from Greater New York Hawk Newsome was interviewed by Martha MacCallum tonight and gave a shocking threat to burn down the “system” and replace it if we don’t get what we want. Newsome recently published a list of demands from Black Lives Matter (see below).

This was clearly a threat, and the list of demands below are a threat to America.

Black Lives Matter Leader: “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.. I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation.”

The Black Lives Matter movement put together what it described as a “clear vision of the world where black humanity and dignity is the reality” back in 2017. Since then, the movement has grown in power, and with that newfound power, they just released a new set of demands on Sunday. As reported last week, the new list of demands announced Sunday reach far and wide with stunning requests to defund the police and replace them with a group similar to the “Black Panther Party or Nation of Islam.” (see previous report below) It’s a power and money grab that claims its goal is to achieve “black liberation.”

PRNews reports the co-founders of Black Lives Matter Greater New York (BLMNY) announced

“We are centering Black Pain at the crossroads of the world,” said Hawk Newsome, Chairperson of BLMNY. “What was once known as “The Great Whitey Way” will now be known as the Black Pathway. For tomorrow we lay the path to Black opportunity.”

The legislative Blueprint, posted to the new Black Opportunities movement’s website, is a policy platform to reform failed statutes and regulations to begin the long march of reform to a more civil and just society. Black Lives Matter is a global movement that successfully focused attention on state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. The new Black Opportunities movement offers the next step on the path to Black liberation by providing educational and empowerment opportunities while preparing and training Black people to protect their own communities.

Drafted as a local, state and federal policy framework to advance solutions to build strong Black communities, and to end the institutional racism and militarized police state responsible for the unjustified killing of Black persons, the Blueprint includes policies that:

-Require police to provide immediate assistance to persons in custody in medical distress – I Can’t Breathe Act
-Eliminate qualified immunity protection for law enforcement officers
-Authorize prosecution of officers who knowingly file false reports – The Blue Wall Act
-Disband police unions to reduce wrongful protection of bad cops
-Disarm and defund police departments to build stronger, safer communities:

CLOSE THE PIPELINE BETWEEN THE MILITARY AND THE POLICE BY ELIMINATING PROGRAMS THAT SELL MILITARY GRADE EQUIPMENT TO POLICE DEPARTMENTS, PROVIDE MILITARY TRAINING TO OFFICERS, OR FIND VETERANS JOBS IN THE POLICE FORCE.

REMOVE POLICE WEAPONS IN SETTINGS SUCH AS IN K-12 SCHOOLS, COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES, HOSPITALS, SPORTING EVENTS AND ULTIMATELY ON STREET PATROL.

DEMAND THAT LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES DIVERT FUNDS FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT AND REINVEST FUNDING INTO VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES TO BUILD STRONGER, SAFER AND PRODUCTIVE COMMUNITIES.

UTILIZE NYPD BUDGET FOR PAYOUTS AND SETTLEMENTS FOR POLICE MISCONDUCT AND BRUTALITY INSTEAD OF NEW YORK CITY BUDGET.

DEMAND THAT ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS STOP TAKING PBA AND POLICE DONATIONS AND RETURN ALL DONATIONS ALREADY MADE.

-Create Special Prosecutor for police misconduct
-Repeal New York’s 50-A statute to increase police transparency and accountability
-Ban cruel and unusual punishment of incarcerated persons, including solitary confinement
-Enact the Judith Clark Law to release aging people in prison who pose little risk
-Education reforms that are community lead and provide critical curriculum
-Enact housing reform policies to protect access to affordable housing
Call for reparations for descendants of enslaved during colonization
-Provide right to counsel for victims of police brutality
-Implement fair and timely parole for incarcerated persons
-Create the Child and Family Equity Freedom Policy

“This Blueprint is a call to action for those we’ve elected to office to serve us. Laws are created to provide structure for our society and institutions, but they must be changed when they no longer serve the welfare of the governed,” said Chivona Newsome, BLMNY co-founder and candidate for Congress (NY-15). “For far too long our institutions have protected the abusers and victimized the innocent while trapping people of color in the quicksand of racism, poverty and despair.”

“Today marks a new beginning, a beginning that mirrors the revolution of our great country’s first days. The protests occurring here today in New York and around the world are symbols of our hope, power, and belief in a better and more just society,” said Newsome. “As our nation’s founding father Patrick Henry so famously proclaimed as he fought against the slavery of British rule, ‘Give me liberty or give me death!’ We’ve seen enough death. We now fan the flames of revolution and march onward to liberty.”

PREVIOUS REPORT ON DEFUNDING THE POLICE AND BRINGING IN “BLACK PANTHER-LIKE FORCE OR NATION OF ISLAM:

A “blueprint” for the way forward for the Black Lives Movement will be unveiled in Times Square in New York on Sunday at 12 p.m. and delivered to communities across the country, according to a leader of the New York BLM movement. Hawk Newsome spoke with Fox News about the “blueprint” of the group, and it’s frightening. He discussed having a force like the “Black Panthers or Nation of Islam” to help fight against the “war on the poor” and “anti-blackness.”

It’s interesting that Democrats and activists have suddenly been pushing to “Defund the Police” (see below) and now this? It’s almost like this is coordinated like everything else with the left.

The New York leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement made several stunning statements claiming the group will have an armed branch of “peace officers” in their war on the police.

After the death of George Floyd, the BLM New York chapter Chairman Newsome described in shocking terms  of plans to be like the Black Panthers by matching fire with fire:

“We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities. You know what it’s like to see a taser pointed at a 7-year-old, you know what it’s like to see a 67-year-old black woman pepper-sprayed and pushed to the ground?”

“We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.”

Newsome said there was a meeting where BLM discussed a “pathway forward” where a plan called “Black Opts” will help to liberate black people:

“We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities.”

Newsome confirmed that BLM “peace officers” would be armed and open carry guns.

“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an army to defend ourselves. We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.”

Newsome spoke of the “war on the poor” and “anti-blackness”:

“When we start talking about black opportunities and building our war chest to defend ourselves from the war on the poor. .. to defend ourselves against the war that is anti-blackness in America, then people will have to meet a certain criteria.”

THE “DEFUND THE POLICE” MOVEMENT IS SPREADING TO DEMOCRATIC-RUN CITIES:

The “Defund the Police” movement has been gaining steam on social media. Notable Democrats and even Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary got in on promoting the movement:

The Minneapolis City Council is all for it, and Hollywood celebrities are also pushing for a ban on law enforcement.

It’s hard to believe, but with the move in Blue states to a “light touch” on criminals and now the George Floyd case, it’s believable. That “soft touch” didn’t work out very well for Democrats during the riots, but the left still wants the cops gone. Even though about 10k people have been arrested across the country during the riots, many of those have been released with no bail due to the “light touch” on enforcement.

Hollywood leftists have been outspoken on the movement by signing a “Defund the Police” letter:

After Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary tweeted out about the movement today, he’s been slammed on social media:

The movement is getting pushback from notable people. James Woods advised the “Defund the Police” supporters to opt-out of protection from the police:

Senator Ted Cruz:

Screen Shot 2020-06-25 at 5.32.52 PM

Now we have a move by Black Lives Matter to have “peace officers” running around enforcing against the police. A spokesperson for the effort described their purpose:

“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an arm to defend ourselves, We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.”

One like Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, and the other our police force. Frightening.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS IT RIGHT:

“The Radical Left Democrats’ new theme is “Defund the Police”. Remember that when you don’t want Crime, especially against you and your family. This is where Sleepy Joe is being dragged by the socialists. I am the complete opposite, more money for Law Enforcement!” – PRESIDENT TRUMP

 

ANTIFA DOC REVEALS ORGANIZED WARFARE TACTICS IN SIEGE OF POLICE PRECINCT

‘What we’re dealing with is more than a mere unruly mob… It’s a well-planned rebellion playing out on the streets of urban America’

Antifa Doc Reveals Organized Warfare Tactics in Siege of Police Precinct

Luis Miguel | The New American – JUNE 22, 2020

Never underestimate your enemy.

The mainstream media would have us believe that the protests and riots that have swept the nation after the death of George Floyd are spontaneous demonstrations whose large turnouts validate the notion that the ideas they argue for— such as abolishing the police — are widely popular.

The average American does not have a full understanding of how much time and money it takes to pull off mass organization such as the one currently taking place. But at The New American, we have long reported on the vast amount of money and institutional resources being poured into Black Lives Matter and Antifa by global elites such as George Soros.

That these radical insurrectionists are so highly funded, organized, and armed should be a cause for concern among Americans and inspire patriots to greater involvement in the well-being of their local communities.

Nevertheless, many continue to write off Antifa, BLM, and other left-wing revolutionary groups as nothing more than unorganized college kids who, should they turn violent, could swiftly be dealt with by a lone gun-toting patriot.

Yet reality presents a far different picture. A recently published document by rioters in Minneapolis who successfully ran police out of the Third Precinct reveals an understanding of the principles of fourth-generation warfare, along with a well-honed level of coordination.

In short, what we’re dealing with is more than a mere unruly mob. It’s a well-planned rebellion playing out on the streets of urban America.

Published at the blog CrimethInc, which describes itself as a “rebel alliance” and a “think tank” for “anonymous collective action,” the article is titled “The Siege of the Third Precinct in Minneapolis: An Account and Analysis.”

“In this anonymous submission, participants in the uprising in Minneapolis in response to the murder of George Floyd explore how a combination of different tactics compelled the police to abandon the Third Precinct,” reads a summary of the breakdown, whose author remains anonymous.

The author explains that the key to their victory over police was the combination of violent members of the “crowd” with nonviolent ones, the latter giving the former cover to attack police while making law-enforcement officers hesitant to hit back with lethal force:

We call the battles of the second and third days at the Precinct a siege because the police were defeated by attrition. The pattern of the battle was characterized by steady intensification punctuated by qualitative leaps due to the violence of the police and the spread of the conflict into looting and attacks on corporate-owned buildings. The combination of the roles listed above helped to create a situation that was unpoliceable, yet which the police were stubbornly determined to contain. The repression required for every containment effort intensified the revolt and pushed it further out into the surrounding area. By Day Three, all of the corporate infrastructure surrounding the Third Precinct had been destroyed and the police had nothing but a “kingdom of ashes” to show for their efforts. Only their Precinct remained, a lonely target with depleted supplies. The rebels who showed up on Day Three found an enemy teetering on the brink. All it needed was a final push.

As the author noted, the radicals’ goal was to stir the police to violence: “It’s important to note that the dynamic we saw on Day Two did not involve using non-violence and waiting for repression to escalate the situation. Instead, a number of individuals stuck their necks out very far to invite police violence and escalation.”

But once officers moved to engage, the mob employed their “peaceful” members to discourage reprisal, “interrupting police violence with strategically deployed ‘innocence’ (‘Hands up! Don’t shoot!’).”

The analysis goes on to relate that the crowd learned to quickly deal with tear gas by setting up eye-flushing stations with the help of on-scene medics. Once they learned that concussion grenades are not physically harmful if one is more than five feet away from them, the crowd remained calm when confronted by that type of weapon.

The insurrectionists also used looting as a battle tactic. “Looters can help feed and heal the crowd while simultaneously disorienting the police. In turn, those going head to head with the police can generate opportunities for looting,” the article reads.

“Employing stores of looted bottled water, many people in the crowd were able to learn and quickly execute eye-flushing,” it states about their response to tear gas.

Of course all this ignores the biggest weapon in their arsenal: Sympathizers in the government who keep the police from taking decisive action against them.

The analysis closes with a section titled “Visions of the Commune,” a description of the agitators’ reveling in the mayhem they created:

As the police made their retreat, a young Somali woman dressed in traditional garb celebrated by digging up a landscaping brick and unceremoniously heaving it through a bus stop shelter window. Her friends — also traditionally dressed — raised their fists and danced.

A masked shirtless man skipped past the burning Precinct and pumped his fists, shouting, “COVID IS OVER!” while twenty feet away, some teenage girls took a group selfie. Instead of saying “Cheese!” they said “Death to the pigs!” Lasers flashed across the smoke-filled sky at a police helicopter overhead.

A young kid who couldn’t be more than seven or eight years old walked up to us with a whiskey bottle sporting a rag coming out the top. “Y’all got a light?” We laughed and asked, “What do you wanna hit?” He pointed to a friendly grocery store and we asked if he could find “an enemy target.” He immediately turned to the US Bank across the street.

If the nation’s patriots don’t cease their underestimation of the Marxsist revolutionaries and rise to the occasion, the “Commune” will soon come to every neighborhood in America.

CHOP: White People Enforce Segregated Area For Black People Only

Segregation is progressive.

 

 

A video out of the ‘Capitol Hill Organized Protest’ zone in Seattle shows white people enforcing a segregated area of a park reserved for black people only.

Because apparently, segregation is now progressive.

The clip shows a man asking a white woman at what time the “Black Out” ends.

“Thing is, I’m half Italian and half Columbian so do I get a pass to get in there?” he asks.

“Well this space is held right now for just black people,” she responds.

She she tells him, “If you have black ancestry, if you’ve experienced oppression because you are black then you can enter this space.”

“White people enforcing a black only space – lol “anti-racist”. These people are trying to take us back to the 1950s,” commented Tim Pool.

“Segregation is back in vogue. CHAZ/CHOP establishes “black only” spaces. It’s like Jim Crow all over again except it’s woke to be racist and corporations throw billions of dollars at you,” remarked Ian Miles Cheong.

Meanwhile, a second shooting in the space of 48 hours was reported in the CHOP area.

“One person with a gunshot wound arrived at Harborview Medical Center in a private vehicle, according to hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg. The person was in serious condition,” reports the Seattle Times.

“Seattle police confirmed one person was injured in a shooting. They also said they heard reports of an additional shooting Sunday night, but were receiving conflicting information and could not verify that.”

BLACK LIVES MATTER CHAPTER CO-FOUNDER DEMANDS WHITE PEOPLE GIVE UP THEIR HOMES

The requests was from a list of demands to white people

National File – JUNE 19, 2020

A Black Lives Matter chapter co-founder wrote a controversial list of demands to white people, involving the surrendering of property to black people.

The Louisville, KY, co-founder and organizer for Black Lives Matter, Charlotte Helm, drafted a list of requests for white people for things she believed should change.

The increasingly popular topic of reparations has floated around certain circles as some believe economic transfers may redress historical wrongs.

Writing for LEO Weekly, Helms outlined a ten-point list of requests including five stipulations where a transfer of property is made to impoverished people of color:

Her first request is simple, she demands that, “White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably one that lives in generational poverty.”

The next request, in the same vein, demands more surrendering of property. Of course, white people will make up for the financial loss of their altruism due to “white privilege.”

She writes: “White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.”

“If you are a developer or realty owner of multi-family housing, build a sustainable complex in a black or brown blighted neighborhood and let black and brown people live in it for free,” she adds.

Rich or poor are not absolved from guilt; those looking to downsize are considered able to fork over property, too. “White people, if you can afford to downsize, give up the home you own to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty,” she continues

And should change up your will, just in case any of your inheritors espouse problematic views. She demands: “White people, if any of the people you intend to leave your property to are racists assholes, change the will, and will your property to a black or brown family. Preferably a family from generational poverty.”

Other requests involve getting “racists” fired, before bringing up the diminutive manhood of men accused of racism.

Black Lives Matter has made a stellar comeback following the recent unlawful killing of suspected fraudster George Floyd, sparking a series of riots and protests across the world.

In 2015, one of the BLM movements co-founders, Patreese Cullors, admitted that they were “trained Marxists” in an interview.

She said: “[We are] trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories, and I think what we really try to do is build a movement that can be utilized by many, many black folk.”

The recent protests have gone international, gripping international coverage.

 

Many Newspapers are Refusing to Publish Mugshot Galleries Because the Criminals Aren’t White

They say it enforces negative stereotypes.

By Shane Trejo – 6/18/2020

There is a growing trend of newspapers across the country that are refusing to publish mugshot galleries because the pictures of minority criminals are supposedly reinforcing negative stereotypes.

The Tampa Bay Times announced on Monday that they would stop publishing mugshot galleries due to concerns that they “disproportionately show black and brown faces.”

“The galleries lack context and further negative stereotypes,” Tampa Bay Times executive editor Mark Katches said in a statement.

“We think the data is an important resource that our newsroom will continue to analyze and watch carefully, but the galleries alone serve little journalistic purpose,” he added.

They followed suit shortly after the Orlando Sentinel announced that they were making a similar decision.

“We’ve come to realize that without context, the galleries have little journalistic value and may have reinforced negative stereotypes,” the Sentinel wrote about the paper’s decision to censor their mugshot database.

In addition, all Gannett-owned papers have announced that they will no longer publish “mugshot galleries, or mugshot photos that are not associated with a story or other editorial content,” according to a Poynter report.

This is part of a broader campaign to suppress facts about crime from being known by the greater public. Big League Politics has reported about how tech corporations are censoring crime statistics from being shared on their platforms:

Instagram is banning federal crime statistics, which drive a stake through the heart of Black Lives Matter’s narrative regarding supposed racial disparities, from being shared on their platform…

The murder rate is incredibly skewed with whites being killed by blacks at a extremely disproportional rate.

In a survey conducted by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, they found that there were a stunning 593,598 instances of documented interracial violent incidents last year, counting black-on-white instances as well as white-on-black instances. The findings are absolutely stunning.

Blacks committed an incredible 537,204 instances of interracial violent attacks against white people, accounting for 90 percent of the violence. White people only committed 56,394 attacks against black people over the same time period. Considering how many more white people there are in the country than blacks, these numbers are staggering.

In addition, data from the Justice Department recorded from 2017 indicates that black people are over-represented when it comes to hate crimes as well while white people are under-represented by 24 percent…

The Silicon Valley titans are at war against the truth. They want the left-wing mob to loot, riot and destroy without the public ever understanding what’s really going on.

BLM PROTESTER IN OHIO TOLD ‘THIS AIN’T SEATTLE’ AND ‘WE DON’T PUT UP WITH YOUR SH*T HERE’

BLM protester tongue-lashed at mostly peaceful counter-demonstration in Bethel, Ohio

A Black Lives Matter protest that descended on the small rural town of Bethel, Ohio, this week was met by over 700 mostly peaceful counter-protesters affiliated with motorcycle clubs and “Back the Blue” groups.

The counter-demonstrators, some of whom were armed with rifles and baseball bats, were filmed by the BLM protesters, and several videos have circulated on social media that were posted with the intent of doxxing counter-protesters.

One heated exchange between the two sides was posted to Twitter by a Black Lives Matter account which captioned the video, Ohio Trump supporters & counter protesters to the Black Life Matters movement threaten and scream to protesters ‘This is a Rublican State’ and a host of other racial slurs.”

VIDEO: BLM Protester In Ohio Told ‘This Ain’t Seattle’ And ‘We Don’t Put Up With Your Sh*t Here’

While no distinguishable racial slurs or threats can be seen in the video, one man can be seen firmly telling a Black Lives Matter protester “Get this on your phone. This ain’t Seattle, this isn’t a Democratic state here, we don’t put up with your shit. All lives matter here.”

“This is a mother f*cking Republican state, b*tch, we don’t play here,” another man added.

The video was also posted to YouTube.

The counter demonstration was mostly peaceful, save for one instance when a Black Lives Matter protester was struck in the head. Various verbal altercations between the two groups ensued, and one female Black Lives Matter activist who marched into the counter-protest had her Black Lives Matter sign removed and destroyed.

Black Lives Matter protests throughout the country were cited as the impetus for the massive turnout amongst counter-protesters on Sunday. Protests that have devolved into violent race riots in Minnesota, New York, Georgia, and Illinois have seen countless instances of property damage, robbery, and politically motivated assault.

The death toll from the 2020 riots has exceeded the total number of unarmed black people killed by police in 2019, despite police brutality often being cited as justification for the violence by rioters:

While organizers, bolstered by allies in the corporate media and governments in Democrat run areas, claim the lethal riots unfolding across America have come in response to police killings of unarmed black men, the nationwide upheaval has now surpassed – in just over one week – the number of unarmed blacks killed by police in all of 2019.

According to data compiled by The Washington Post, American police killed a total of 1,004 people in 2019. Of those, 371 were white, and 236 were black.

Of the 371 whites killed by police, 20 of them were unarmed at the time. Of the 236 blacks killed by police, 9-15 of them were unarmed, depending on definition.

At the current count, at least 17 people have lost their lives as a result of the nationwide riots, in which looting, savage beatings, and gunfire have become commonplace, with radical organizations like Antifa, which President Trump recently vowed to designate as a domestic terror organization, and Black Lives Matter leading the charge.
