What began as protests have escalated into frontal assaults on police in an attempt to break down civil order, to overwhelm the police, to destroy public buildings including government buildings and pubic records. The attacks are coordinated and similarly planned across several cities. It is hard to believe this will deescalate without the mobs getting their wishes unless something intervenes, and then … it will take a bigger force than is out on the streets to prevail. The action in Chicago is similar to what one would have seen in Cairo at the beginning of the Summer Uprising.
What is clear is that the initial complaints against the police based on fake incidents for the most part, was used to defang the police so these civil assaults would be more successful. The politicians that are not for the reestablishment of civil order, are insurrectionists and should be treated that way, including governors.
