    Now they are attacking New York, Atlanta and Charlotte. This has just become a excuse to commit criminal activity.

    Just wouldn't be wise to show up on my doorstep. I'm at peace with any repercussions I would be forced to ensue.

    Very ugly in a # of cities. The area of Lafayette Park near the WH is on verge of getting serious.

    Does not speak well for the country as have all loved.

    Fugly indeed!

    I heard the same and confirmed it. That’s a great start to the evening! He’s a complete joke of a public official.

    There was a large fb event scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at the CMPD Metro sub station (West CLT). Clearly they couldn’t wait because it started this evening around 8p.

    Hoping for the best.

    What's the deal with the Councilman?

    I am admittedly ignorant living in the country with @BASIL a stone's throw away so we're safe!

    Did your eyes pop out of your head reading about this clown, knowing that he won an election?

    I NEVER thought this was going to take place in NC. Mind you for 20+ years I lived in Onslow County and it seemed much more conservative in the 70s through the 90s.

    Might be a few instigators, but there seem to be plenty of willing locals participating.

    ATLANTA, GA – “Send in the Guard.”

    It’s official. Just after midnight Saturday, Governor Brian Kemp activated 500 Georgia National Guard soldiers.

    He’s sending them in effective immediately to help deal with the mass looting and exploding riots that have taken over the city of Atlanta.

    People been pent up an stir crazy from all the COVID mess. Just looking for an excuse to cause trouble and hoping the mob thing will hide their identity. Hope they're wearing their mask and practicing social distancing. :D

    Yes, plenty of willing local participants. That's how Antifa operates. They're well-trained, well-equipped, and well-funded professional instigators. They deploy to where there will be crowds ripe for unrest and exploit the opportunity to stoke mayhem and destruction. They know exactly what they're doing and easy to spot. Black folks and Cops are pretty far down the list of who your actual enemy is in situations like this.

    You can be sure that there are paid instigators who are at least helping fan the flames, regardless of what local people are or are not doing. Just like Ferguson.

    I'm hoping people will eventually figure out that the real enemies are: Liberal politicians and the Woke-Bot Suburban White Women who are largely responsible for them being in office, the MSM, and George Soros.

    Do not forget that it was only about 3 years ago when Charlotte was getting trashed after the shooting of the guy in Charlotte.
    It's not new here, unfortunately.

    He was in on the last one also prior to being “elected”.
    Fine example of low voter turnout.

    soooooo glad we moved out of Durham.

    If you think life will return to normal in the larger cities you have a very unpleasant surprise coming...., especially if my predictions about the economy materialize. FIFTY PER CENT of small businesses are going away, and ain't no way there is going to be an economic rebound. They put a trampoline under this dead cat, but gravity eventually wins, and when it does, the frustration and rage is NEVER rational.

    Why should we expect anything less then what is happening? It's just an excuse to steal and continue being the criminals they are. They just said on T.V. they broke into Macys in Northlake Mall.

    Let’s face the honest truth. They’ll never be honest, moral, productive members of a civil society. They. Just. Won’t. The question is what do we do about it. What are we willing to do about it. Obviously, playing by the rules of ‘our” game, i.e. recognizing their rights and expecting them to do likewise, isn’t going to work. They’re not playing that game.
