Why would the looting stop if nobody is stopping it? What is the expectation here? That people will tire of getting opportunities to steal Louis Vuitton bags?
I’m trying to figure out what all the people who oppose federal troops being sent to stop the rioting are thinking. I’m asking this in good faith. What’s the plan? I’m far removed from the circles that support the “protests,” and I’d like to know what people are thinking.
There’s a pile of dead bodies. Chicago already has 150 more murders this year than at the same moment of 2019. Several cities suffered massive damage. Residents are terrified. Local authorities are clearly incapable of doing anything because it’s been over two months and it’s only getting worse. Every concession has been made to the rioters in Portland and Seattle but the rioting continues. What’s the endgame?
