Rioting and agitators are still active across America. The news isn’t reporting it as much because people are getting tired of the unrest. And there is a fear that citizens might start fighting back if this doesn’t stop.
It is time for the Democratic Party to stop pandering and supporting these anarchists that are holding businesses, homes, and cities hostage with fear.
If you want to defund the police how will welfare workers and churches stop this nonsense?
America needs law and order. We look weak to the rest of the world because of these Democrats.

A group that included agitators armed with hammers attacked two police cars late Sunday, Detroit Police Chief James Craig told reporters on Monday.
The group included people who officers reported shortly beforehand were armed with hammers, Craig said.
The police officer driving the SUV was driving slowly until the rear window was smashed.
“Officers reported that once they heard the rear window smashed … they were not certain that they were not being fired upon,” the police chief said. “They accelerated to get out of there in the event they were being fired upon.”
That’s when they accelerated, causing many of the group to disengage with the vehicle.
Several males who had hopped onto the hood held on when the driver accelerated. After stopping briefly, the driver sped away, reaching speeds of up to 25 miles per hour.
“The officers did the right thing,” Craig said. “They had to take quick, evasive action.”
If officers had waited, their vehicle may have been breached, he added.
The situation unfolded on Vernor Highway.
The investigation is still ongoing.
Craig read a text message he said was from a woman who was at the protest before leaving.
“They were plotting to provoke the police. As I was leaving, I saw those same guys hitting the police vehicle for no reason,” the unnamed woman said in the message.
The protest started out peaceful earlier Sunday. Most of the protests in recent weeks have been peaceful, according to police officials.
Once protesters began getting violent, they move into a criminal status, Craig said. He described some of the group as agitators, noting that rampant destruction was wrought by those types of individuals in late May.
The violent behavior Sunday included the several people who jumped onto the police car, he said.
Video footage showing one angle of what happened circulated widely Sunday night, leading to accusations that officers rammed protesters. It wasn’t clear how many people, if any, were injured. Police officials said they’re not aware of any injuries.
