"This effort has one goal: silence, criminalize, and penalize Floridians who want to see justice for Black lives," said ACLU of Florida executive director Micah Kubic.

You mean the same way they treat the armed black militias who are also there to protect businesses and property: 

Armed and Black. How a group of men licensed to carry guns say they are seeking racial justice



Because of its cooperation with city officials, the group is not fearful the police will attack them. In their view, they are an added layer of security in the community.

The Freedom Fighters’ mission statement reads: “Our objective is not to be the police, but the bridge to link the police and the community together.”

"I don't take responsibility at all"


He's incapable of dealing with a topic this complex, and so only makes America worse again.
And it's likely we hear "hey, it's not his fault." But it is his responsibility. He wanted the job. This is now his job: being in charge of all Americans' safety.
He has failed miserably.
 
 
Couldn't agree more, but it seems like he is not the only one who does not take responsibility.  Wouldn't it be novel if the people that actually perpetuate the violence, destruction and theft took responsibility as well?  Seems to me real progress is made in the trenches by those doing the work. {#Whistle}

“It feels like before they kind of had a mission more and kind of actually wanted to get some stories going and they were really into breaking news. They wanted to publish stuff that was new that no one was publishing,” she recalled. “Now it kind of seems like they’re just getting people to write stories on Twitter drama and taking some tweet from some crazy person and trying to make it like ‘the​ West has fallen.’”

If the left thinks the American public is going to tolerate any more rioting, arson, & general anarchy, they have seriously misread the mood.

Rioting & general anarchy at this point will only play into Trump's hands - and push more voters into his column.  And any more of it will likely be shut down HARD by either the citizens or law enforcement - OR BOTH.  Enough is enough.

My two cents

some guy's take on theft and arson...

There Is No Defense for Looting

It is one thing to peacefully march against injustice, and quite another to burn down what others built up.

| 9.11.2020 8:00 AM

National Public Radio's interview last month with Vicky Osterweil, author of a new book called "In Defense of Looting," generated so much pushback that the network had to add a clarification providing more "context" to help readers "fully assess" her "controversial" views. But there isn't anything that NPR's editors could do to contextualize Osterweil's dangerous message.

In technical terms, her argument—that the American system of property rights is oppressive and looting and mayhem will bring about positive social change—is nuts. The interview contains myriad quotations that read like a parody from The Babylon Bee. I'm not unhappy that NPR published it, as it's important to know what such people think. But why didn't the interviewer ask any tough questions?

NPR asked Osterweil to talk about rioting as a tactic, in the way a lifestyle reporter might ask a celebrity to talk a little about a new movie. As the author explains, rioting accomplishes "important things." For starters, "It gets people what they need for free immediately, which means that they are capable of living and reproducing their lives without having to rely on jobs or a wage…That's looting's most basic tactical power as a political mode of action."
