Yesterday night marked another series of violent riots and lootings in America. These demonstrations are being branded as means of protesting the Memorial Day 2020 death of George Floyd; however, most people are waking up to the reality that setting cities ablaze has nothing to do with Floyd.
Prior to the riots on Monday night, the president addressed the nation. Trump warned that he will send in the United States military to handle these violent riots if demonstrators continue to loot, set fire, and tear cities apart.
Unfortunately, rioters and anarchists appear determined to call the president’s bluff. Reports from Breitbart News confirm that New York City suffered extensive damages last night as demonstrators tore the place to pieces.
Reviewing the Latest New York City Riots
It appears as though President Trump’s warning fell on the deaf ears of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Neither one of these elected Democrats managed to get their areas under control.
Monday night in New York City consisted of looting, vandalism, and rioters descending upon various businesses. Countless businesses, both high-end and low-end alike, were not spared from rioters who smashed windows, stole merchandise, and otherwise committed a series of crimes. Some of those crimes entailed assaulting and robbing innocent individuals in the area.
Reports of looting at multiple areas in New York City, including Manhattan and the Bronx.
