‘We Don’t Have Law and Order’
Article from For Liberty by Norm Leahy.
After the peaceful protests ended in many cities, the rioting began.
It wasn’t just graffiti and burning dumpsters. But it was also businesses, including many which had only just reopened their doors after weeks of being closed, by government order, in response to the coronavirus.
Looters hit big chain stores and mom-and-pop storefronts, alike:
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) delivered an impassioned appeal to protesters Friday, saying more than half of business owners in the metro area are minorities.
“You’re not protesting anything running out with brown liquor in your hands and breaking windows in this city,” she said. “So when you burn down this city, you’re burning down our community.”
In Los Angeles, looters ran off with pricey sneakers from the boutique Flight Club after that city’s protests turned violent, according to media reports.
And in Seattle, there was the widely shared video on Twitter of a young woman walking down the sidewalk carrying an entire strawberry-topped cheesecake on a plate after a Cheesecake Factory was looted during protests.
In Minneapolis, the epicenter of the unrest, immigrant small business owners were reminded of the horrors they thought they had left behind:
Abdishakur Elmi sat in his car Friday watching flames rage from the building next door to his Hamdi Restaurant, which he opened after migrating from Somalia in 1996.
“I don’t see the government,” Elmi, 55, told the Los Angeles Times. “I don’t see the power.”
He noticed East Lake Street mainstays were looted, including a Nordic bakery and meat market. Elmi and his restaurant supplier, Mohammoud Abdi, told the Times the damage reminded them of their younger days in Somalia, where militants ruled.
“We don’t have law and order,” said Abdi, 47.
And it’s a weird time, indeed, when Dennis Rodman is a voice of calm and reason. Rodman implored those running amok to stop: “We’re human beings, not f**king animals.”

They used to shoot looters on sight. Antifa is using this protest to destroy our cities.
Law enforcement needs to get those in charge, follow the money back and hold them responsible for all the damages and criminal acts.
I don’t remember ever seeing a video, or of hearing a report about looters being shot. Sometimes there would be reports of looters being arrested. That is out of the question now, with police being blamed every time they actually take action. The murder by police which caused the present problem is an extreme example of how the police should NOT act, but shooting of a looter in action would go a long way toward preventing further looting.
Catch a few & they will sing like little canaries. America wants those facilitating the funds for this Terrorist group.
I believe the Government knows just who they are, but is not doing anything about it. . If your not part of the solution, you are the problem.
Business owners, home owners, policemen if Antifa or BLM or any rioter or looter or arsonist attack you or your family, open fire-shoot them dead, it is what they deserve. If they come to my place to do harm, they will EAT LEAD!
So far all the city’s are run by dumbocraps.
Why is this?
With the grace of god they will suffocate in their face diaper.
SHOOT THE LOOTERS !
YOU BE LOOTIN
I BE SHOOTIN
I have no problem with POTUS sending in the military. Congress which consist of Democrats and Republicans have sent the military and still do to protect foreigners. As a retired army veteran, our orders were to go as a PEACE KEEPING FORCE. So why do we do it for other countries but we won’t do it for our own families?
They’re terrorists now. They’re still dangerous. Treat them accordingly. If they outnumber law enforcement, I like the notion that they should be marked with indelible dye so they can be identified later.
If they can loot then anyone can break in and loot the mayors and commissioners houses.
you can leave any reply, but, if it does not fit the demmoocrratttics view. it mean nothing.
Most amazingly is that most all of the problems are in the Blue States and Blue cities – it’s like they are committing suicide while saying “look what I did to me – it’s your fault…”
shoot when they come in, it’s over.
Here are the “SOLUTIONS” to bringing back law and Order and greatness to a nation that once was: 1. Bring back PRAYER in Schools (Public and Private) 2. Bring Back “Bible Study” (2 Tim 2:15 KJV (ONLY) 3. Bring back the Ten/10 Commandments and let them be seen in schools and the walls and halls of justice etc. Thus, FULFILL the Biblical Commandments 1 Thes 5:17/2Tim 2:15/Exodus 20 KJV and then OVERTURN “Roe v. Wade and stop doing what GOD HATES! Proverbs 6:17 KJV This will make a great difference! (Abingdon v. Schempp/Engle v. Vitale/Stone v. Graham/Roe v. Graham 1962-3 1970-73) OVERTURN all of these and reinstate the same! This will have Immediate results!! BET!!
I agree with your comment!
I concur Bruce!! If we get rid of policemen there’ll be lawlessness. We need laws to protect our families from evil vile havoc seeking thugs! If not, we as a people have the right to defend ourselves. I pray this doesn’t happen? But when you live in a liberal state we have no choice but to protect ourselves!! Lock and load, come loot me and off it goes!! Click Click…
