There is an article in Fox news this morning that talks about how the
protests riots in Portland have moved from the downtown area into residential areas. What I want to point out is this part of the article:
Some residents in the neighborhoods have expressed support of the movement despite the disruption. Neighborhood residents regularly aid protesters as police chase small groups through Portlands residential streets, Getty reported.
If one of my neighbors is actively assisting rioters in the destruction of my property, whether that be actually damaging property or assisting them in escape and evasion from police, my neighbor now has a problem.
See, if I have proof in the form of video, I am suing his ass for all of the damages. If that isn’t possible, then guess whose property is going to be damaged by unidentified looters the next night.
Targeting government buildings isn’t working, so the insurgents have decided to target residential areas instead.
The people in these neighborhoods need to make it known in no uncertain terms that this won’t be tolerated. Maybe some protesters can go visit the riot assisting neighbors’ homes and do some “mostly peaceful” protesting against their cars and property. Maybe the message will be understood.
