Posted on 08/10/2020 4:51:49 AM PDT by Texas Fossil
CHICAGO (CBS) Dozens of stores, banks and other businesses were broken into across downtown Chicago overnight.
The unrest started around 11 p.m. Sunday and cause of the unrest is still unknown at this time, but it does appear to be a coordinated effort. VIdeo shows multiple cars parked on the streets as people ran out and broke into stores.
Bridges surrounding The Loop are closed to traffic. Expressway ramps leading into the downtown area are also shut down.
The Best Buy at North and Clybourn was destoyed by looters. Boxes and debris from stolen merchandise were strewn across the parking lot. Everything is complete chaos, reports CBS 2s Jeanette Hudson. The damage looked more like a torndao had hit the area.

Mass Rioting is happening in Chicago and in Seattle.
Maybe mayor carpet muncher was among them.
The cause of the unrest is unknown?
Maybe an elite team of investigators can find a common thread...
Coming to NYC shortly. And probably not just to stores because there are many million dollar apartments full of goodies just waiting to be “redistributed.”
Looting in Chicago? This is what happens when they run out of bullets for
Shooting each other
Animals that can’t be controlled need to be put down.
Any report on who’s doing the looting?
Footage I saw looked more Antifa than Blacks to me. If so, this is a new twist on an old problem.
Is anyone not connecting the dots of this nationwide mob activity back to the Dems?
How can anyone honestly believe America will be better off at the hands of people who condone this behavior?
the cause is “unknown”. <= BLM, Islamic terrorists, MSM
Yeah, and it’ll be just too bad if the woke shitlib occupants happen to get in the way, won’t it?
What was it Nasty Pelosi said? People will do what they do.
“Footage I saw looked more Antifa than Blacks to me.”
Most in the BLM movement are pampered young white liberals, so it’s really hard to tell who’s doing what based on color.
One problem I see here....the gangs in Chicago already have guns and a strategy, so if Antifa/BLM arrives, the cops might pull pack and just let the gangs clean up the ‘threat’. This would be the one town that I wouldn’t bring BLM into.
“Authorities remain baffled...”
This could be the dems next strategy.
Mass flash mob type episodes. Strike fast and randomly, and before police can be mobilized and sent to the area, vanish leaving behind an incomprehensible amount of damage.
This would destabilize the cities in ways that are unimaginable.
Its time for locals to Koreatown them.
The Black Lives Loot movement.
Dont you know those terms you used are RACIST, you cisgendered white male instrument of the patriarchy?
This was unrest.
Get with the program or you shall be doxed, your employer threatened if youre not fired, you threatened by a mob at your house.
How long will the authorities search for a motive?
Or they could just ignore it like it never happened
Give them a flashlight and a map. That might help. Or not.
Oh, it’s just those wacky teens letting off steam because of Globull Warming and the Corona Virus...................
