    I live in Philly, these assholes practically destroyed Chestnut St yesterday in Center City. H&M, Footlocker, the Apple store, TD Bank, etc. all vandalized and looted. The footage is actually a block up from my old HS and that only a small part of Chestnut St. They even vandalized and tried to pull down Frank Rizzo's statue.

    Today, the protest is taking place on Market St and Walnut St I believe. I haven't been paying close enough attention but I heard there have been over 200 arrests, and more looting on West Walnut and West Chestnut

    Everytime there's a peaceful protest you have these fucking outside agitators who take advantage of it. These agitators are not part of the peaceful protestors who are in support for George Floyd, what they are are anarchists who only want to bring about chaos and mayhem.

    Be careful and stay safe..

    Also as of a few minutes ago our mayor, Jim Kennedy, has set a new curfew of 6pm to 6am. Just yesterday, not even 24 hours ago, it was 8pm to 6am

    Ridiculous..

    I live in Los Angeles California, the rioting was horrible! People broke into stores and stole shit! Especially in those fancy shopping complexes and areas like beverly hills, and rodeo drive. [​IMG]
    And now, we have a goddamn curfew!

    I've actually seen some videos of police pushing and pepper spraying non-violent ppl. One showed a girl walking next to a police officer, not saying anything at all or being forceful and the bastard pepper sprayed her!! :eek:

    nobody in my country cares, except maybe 1K people in Berlin, so I can't say much (+ maybe a hand full people on Twitter talk about it here in Germany and most of them look like if they do it for "to look cool")

    There's a small shopping center called The Liberty Place on Chestnut St, I wouldn't be surprised if that was looted too. I follow a YouTuber who lives in Minneapolis and she said that the looting in the twin cities went from robbing stores to robbing homes. I hope it doesn't reach that extreme here or anywhere else

    What's the curfew in LA?

    It's ok, I'm sure some people here protest to look cool too lol. I heard about protesting in other countries but I haven't paid much attention to it because of the rioting here, I don't think that type of behavior has reached an international level yet....I hope

    Damn, they got KOP too?? If they got KOP then I'm sure the Gallery/Fashion District is trashed. I heard that the Macy's on Chestnut was raised too

    The curfew in LA is where if you live in LA you need to stay indoors starting from 8.pm Saturday until 5:30 am Sunday morning it sucks

    It’s been bad :/ We have an indefinite curfew set in the city (which I’m only 15 mins away from lel)

    Our park is ruined and a bunch of buildings were stoned. A construction site was lit on fire. There is a (rather tall) building that was lit on fire too. From where I live I could actually see the smoke and light it produced. :/

    (I felt like Padmé when she watched the Jedi Temple burn :/ Star Wars stans will know)

    The thing is, I don’t disagree with the prospect of the protests (that the US needs to address the police brutality on African-Americans and other minorities, and brutality in general,) but this has gotten out of hand. There are no mentions of George Floyd’s name, and none of this is honouring him or benefiting humanity...

    Stay safe everyone, both mentally and physically. ~<3~ ~<3~

    Actually when something starts in America and slowly moves over to Europe, most people often don't understand it and often just do stuff because "Oh its from America, that means its eighter good or bad, we shouldn't really question it, except its Trump" And Germany for example is a lot inspired by America so if something happens, sometimes people in Germany copy that behavier without really knowing. But guess what... at the end most Germans just end up like "Die spinnen doch die Amis!"
