The working- and middle-class people of New York have had to remain in place to face the COVID virus. They have no second homes to retreat to. Now they are faced with the virus of organized criminal gangs and looters.
Some actually defended the looting, rationalizing it as payback for the injustices blacks have had to endure and forgetting the peaceful message of Martin Luther King Jr.
Looting will never foster social justice or redress past grievances. Looting only serves to selfishly benefit the looter and promote reactionary politics.
Outsiders and seasoned thieves are using the protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis cop as a cover to commit crimes, creating a major concern among law enforcement in the city and around the country, authorities said.
The head of a prominent New York City police union told “The Ingraham Angle” Tuesday that President Trump should consider sending federal personnel to prevent more rioting and looting in America’s biggest city.
“NYPD is losing the city of New York and we have no leadership in the city of New York right now, from City Hall to the brass of the NYPD,” New York Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins told Laura Ingraham. “The men and women are being pelted with rocks, bricks, cars [are] lit on fire. And this is continuous. We have a curfew that’s been implemented tonight at eight o’clock and everyone is still out rioting in the streets in New York.”
And he is not far from the truth as one video that surfaced shows NYPD cops stand down as looters ransack the store one of them even runs away.
The incident happened in a New York convenience store that was being looted by thugs.
The two officers were in the store and instead of apprehending the armed criminals (they had a knife) they stood down and allowed them to loot.
But if that wasn’t bad enough, one of the officers literally ran away and left her partner in the store by herself.
The man working behind the counter could have been injured or killed by one of these criminals and while police officers did nothing.
Two female NYPD cops stand down (one runs away and abandons her partner) and allow a store to be robbed at knifepoint right in front of them.
Fire all of these useless cowards today. pic.twitter.com/kJmyyUnfdj

So this is the police in our country in 2020, they are afraid to shoot, afraid to defend, afraid to protect.
