You really can't blame these thugs, not when these spineless Governors and Mayors roll out the welcome mat and stop just short of sending out an invitation to loot and burn the city to the ground.
When idiot leaders such as the Governor and Mayor get in front of the camera and beg and plead with these animals to "please stop and go home", while the destruction is at it's peak, they actually announce they will make no arrests because they are out numbered, and do not have the jail capacity to even try to regain control.
The curfew announcement was only to fuel the desire in these people to really show their ass. It's all by design, there is no denying the timing. The covid virus numbers were on the decline, the hysteria of that was fading. The businesses were opening and the economy just might have started to show positive signs of recovery, and we damn sure couldn't allow that to happen, not with the election still a few months away.
What better way to put the president between a rock and a hard place. He does nothing and he is blamed for not stepping up and putting an end to this shit, or he does step in and makes the hard decisions to gain control of these cities, and he will be a heartless racist, it's a no win situation, but hey, at least this time it wasn't a school shooting, and it only took one life lost to put this plan into motion.
