    Irrespective of what ANTIFA says, Arson, Looting, etc is Criminal Activity and the participants should be dealt with severely while in the act.

    There's a video a woman posted of her extensive rant against armed business owners in Chicago depriving her of her "right to loot" and being willing to "shoot a black woman to protect their cheap Chinese $hit."

    I won't post it because of course she is a looney tune, and because it misdirects from the systems that have created similarly-minded American looney tunes. Souls are destroyed for power and money. I shall always blame the corrupt power mongers, in and out of office.

    Regarding the rioters, they shall not be charged, just as OCCUPY was not prevented from camping in public parks. Again, this is due to a corrupt authority.

    I also eagerly await the media reports of a lack of COVID infection spikes after these people were given passes on "social distancing." That should be wonderful news, right? We're back in business, right?

    I think she threatened to call her brother who is a cop in that city

    As if we haven't enough to contend with
    I worry now that these idiots will promote another upturn with the virus :mad:

    Good call, Al.

    She said her brother is a homicide detective.

    Boy, I hate to keep beating this drum, but...

    The Swine Flu infected 1 in 6 of us.
    COVID has infected 1 in 200 of us.

    I get it @John Brunner but regardless, most people have been abiding lockdown and are anxious for it to end
    Another surge will put a stop to that :(

    I guess my point was that there has been no surge yet.

    It's less than 1/30th the cases of the Swine Flu, and about 1/5th the most moderate season of the past decade. To me, the only "surge" has been media hype.

    A "surge" is define by how frantic the reporter sounds, and not by any meaningful number.

    That was my point too - there has been no surge yet because most people locked down
    Now, because of the protesters gathering together, there may be a surge

    NOW I gotcha. I [obviously] misread.
    Thank you for clarifying, Patsy!!!

    You know, they are an unintentional test bed. They shall definitively prove/disprove the ease of transmission of this thing. I just hope we get facts & truth. Someone commented on another forum that there have been 2 cases as a result of the protests, as though that's some kind of "I told you so!" evidence. Two cases.

    Of course the narrative now is that Trump's pending rallies are potential death traps ("orange man bad"), but the protests/riots around the world were apparently immune to the virus.

    And those riots were chock-full of the highest "at-risk" group.
    But you better believe that the universal narrative has already been emailed to news organizations everywhere.

    COVID has been a test. I'm not yet certain if we've passed or failed. There are a lot of honest people in this world who sort of just live their lives until over-provoked, and many have reached their limit. Others may shout loudly and continuously, but that does not mean they are the majority.

    We shall see.
