“Peaceful” Protests

 or just plain looting…

And it wasn’t the Amish that were looting and vandalizing the businesses on Michigan Avenue and the surrounding areas in Chicago late Sunday evening. More at the Channel 5 news website…including video of the folks doing the looting. 

And the cops weren’t allowed to use the crowd control tools they needed when they were outnumbered. 

This is how the Chicago we know dies slowly. In order to protect the city, the police will shut down the trains from the south side and raise the bridges to limit access to keep the majority of the folks doing the crimes away. Folks who work downtown, if they are actually going in to work, are having to prove that they are essential and have to be in the downtown area. 

There has to be someone organizing the folks from the south side. No way that thousands all decided to get on trains and into cars to go and loot in the more affluent parts of the city all at once. 

And this is a great way to make sure that whites fear and loathe poor black folks.
