The black lives matter movement has brought more to society than violent protests and riots, it has led to a more violent society, period.
All of a sudden people feel that society is giving them a pass to use violence whenever they want.
It’s not even black on white violence that is growing, but all violence.
This is the price of authorities telling law enforcement to stand down like this.
It did not have to get this bad. But when politicians allow rioting, looting and threatening police, without punishing the law-breakers, yet arrest women for spilling paint on black Lives matter graffiti, this is the result. The public gets the message. It’s not about law and order, it’s about one’s ideology.
Again, we are also seeing this violent uptick with leftists in Israel, so this is a serious societal development that we are following, for the benefit of all of us.
