Yea this is worse than LA in 92. If this does not end ASAP I am afraid this will blow up in a huge way.
If someone brings a handgun to one of these riots and shoots into law enforcement - the outcome would be a disaster.
I fear for a lot of the pharmacists and technicians working in major cities are in danger. These rioters will come looking for controlled substance if it keeps getting worse.
Remember the CVS that was burned down in Baltimore a few years ago? I can see that happening soon. What happens to the staff, would they get paid if their pharmacy gets destroyed?
I am safe at home gaming my life away. Will continue to not care until it affects me in some way.
Rioters and looters are trying to create chaos and find opportunities to steal. As a side note, Floyd's family is killing it with Gofundme.
If they continue looting grocery stores then it will affect you. Where will we get our food from? How much toilet paper do you have stocked up? They are looting all of that too. Do you ever order things in the mail? Postal workers and UPS drivers are not going to deliver during a riot.
America will not reopen until this is over so the stock market will crash again. Also this will cause a second wave of Covid-19 and all the gains from this month could be wiped out.
Oh wow so they foresaw these riots? Shoot wish they would've warned us lol
No - their gut told them that something was really wrong and access to common services may be disrupted. We can continue to mock them but the truth is that they were responding to their instincts in a natural way.
The coroner’s report will show that the car’s destruction was primarily caused by an overdue oil change and the rear passenger tire being 2psi low. The being set on fire was a coincidence.
I cannot understand the looting, not ok
These uneducated, mentally unstable people are told to give up their rights and lockdown for 2+ months. Their stimulus check ran out over a month ago (if they even paid taxes and got one) and they've been unemployed for over a month and still told America can't reopen. That's just asking for trouble and here it is. There are people looting toilet paper.
I blame one side for locking down too long and the other for denying extended stimulus, sounds about right?
Some Walmart neighborhood market stores actually close early today tooStalled OPEC talks were the excuse for markets plummeting in March. I don't think algos will react much to riots
If you look at the list of Target closures in California - proximity to light rail / public transit (even lily white areas), proximity to the poors. I don't think Walmart will close their EBT traps pre-emptively.
What is the end game? If one side escalates and some innocent person gets hurt, then what is the next step? What is going to stop it?
Innocent people are already getting hurt. It will take the military to end this.
May 3, 1992 - Over 1,100 Marines, 600 Army soldiers, and 6,500 National Guard troops patrol the streets of Los Angeles.
Unlike 1992, with the use of social media today...it is much easier to spread out.
I remember the smoke from the LA riot. It was mostly concentrated in certain areas. It didn’t spread after the national guards moved in.
How would this end? Is there a solution that is acceptable?
