As the mayor of Portland warned his city’s rioters at the start of the month: Mayor pleads with vandals: Don’t you see that you’ve become a prop for Trump’s campaign?
It’s easier to start the violence than to stop it. “It only escalates from here. The sides don’t sit back, ponder what’s happened, and then suddenly decide that this might have been a misadventure and badly conceived project. Anger builds. Memories are made. This all redounds to increasing levels of violence. Once this spigot has been opened, it’s extremely difficult to close it.”
EXTREMELY GRAPHIC: @Julio_Rosas11 recorded up-close footage of one of the men who tried to attack a man who was on the ground but armed with a semi-auto rifle. Half of his upper arm was blown off. #KenoshaRiots pic.twitter.com/81bFbBl7Dw

CHARLES LIPSON: Playing with Fire. “The pushback is coming. It will be seen at the ballot box, the gun store, and the moving company. Citizens will vote for public safety and move to safer locations. If police won’t protect them, they will do it themselves. Even the NY Times has noticed. They report there simply aren’t enough moving vans to meet the demand from fed-up New Yorkers. In Manhattan, Minneapolis, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, and other cities, they see the quality of life crashing and burning outside their windows.”
If you want more violence, vote for the people who won’t condemn the “mostly peaceful” riots.
