The unrest sweeping the country shows a deep disconnect in the direction of the United States. Some examples, like the protest in Palos Verdes Estates, are peaceful and represent people’s legitimate concerns. The control of powerful police unions has enabled a lack of accountability. And this results in many things– including, as we saw in Minneapolis, violence. However, this is not the entire story. Furthermore, a look between protests and riots shows the overall picture much better and more transparent.
The crowds are sending two clear messages in significant cities. Many protests are peaceful and follow the general guidelines of dissent. They are constitutional and mainly during the daytime. However, as we’ve seen in LA, Minneapolis, and DC, some very different things happen during riots and looting.
Several significant factors are at play in dividing the two waves of civil unrest. On the one hand, the two may seem the same. However, elements are driving the violence and looting in some major cities.
Put these factors together with the strain of the Coronavirus, and the temperature reached a boiling point. Where we head from here is not yet clear. However, in all likelihood, it will be up to citizens to solve these issues on our own. Keep it here for more updates and legal analysis.
