    Rioters struck Louisville and other cities for the second night of violence and mayhem after the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision.

    Louisville

    The police arrested 24 people Thursday night, including Kentucky State Rep. Attica Scott. She authored the “Breonna’s Law” legislation:

    Scott, a Democrat from Louisville, and others were arrested near the main branch of the Louisville Free Public Library and First Unitarian Church at the intersection of South Fourth and York streets, according to Tracy Dotson, a spokesman for the union representing Louisville Metro Corrections.

    Scott and her daughter, Ashanti, were charged with first-degree rioting, a Class D felony, failure to disperse and unlawful assembly, according to LMPD.

    LMPD is accusing Scott of being part of a group that caused damage at multiple locations, including setting fire to the main library branch. A WDRB News crew covering the protest saw one individual smash a library window and throw a flare inside the building. Protesters walking nearby condemned the individual’s actions.

    Some rioters and protesters took refuge at First Unitarian Church. Church leaders and the police came to a deal that the people could leave without facing arrest for violating curfew.

    The police department said rioters looted six businesses: Buddy’s Home Furnishings, two Gamestop locations, two Walgreens locations, and T-Mobile.

    The department also opened arson and vandalism probes.

    Los Angeles

    A truck sped through a crowd of people in Los Angeles, injuring one person, before speeding away.

    But reports either didn’t say or buried the fact that the mob swarmed the truck.

    The L.A. riots in 1992 showed why you never give into the mob.

    Seattle

    From Seattle PI:

    That rolling demonstration continued for about an hour until the crowd made its way back to the police station near Cal Anderson Park. That’s when people started throwing things against the building.

    Trash cans and rubbish were piled up and set on fire. Protesters then started igniting fireworks. Police could be heard on a public address system ordering the crowd to disperse, then a line of bicycle officers charged in, followed by officers on foot in riot gear.

    Protesters retreated up 12th Avenue, and more explosions could be heard, possibly from police deploying blast balls or other crowd control munitions.

    Unfortunately, still 44% approve of these mostly “peaceful “ protests

    That’s how dumb people are and that’s why Inthink Trump will get blamed in the end

    AP Poll: Americans Are Done With the “Mostly Peaceful Protests”
    —Ace

    Support for the ” ” ” ” protests ” ” ” ” has fallen 15%, and approval is now below disapproval.

    The poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds that 44% of Americans disapprove of protests in response to police violence against Black Americans, while 39% approve. In June, 54% approved. The new survey was conducted Sept. 11-14, before Wednesday’s announcement that a lone Louisville police officer would be charged in the Taylor case, but not for her actual death.

    Can we get pictures of these people? If I ever get back into the restaurant business I want to make sure I don’t hire them.
