Rioting and looting have been destroying cities for two months.
The protests over the murder of George Floyd have quickly devolved into leftist anarchy.
And one shocking incident proves Democrat cities are completely out of control.
The Democrats hate Donald Trump so much, they’re willing to let their own cities burn.
Durkan dismissed the act of aggression and said it would be another “Summer of Love.”
She only shut it down after multiple murders, but far-left extremists are attempting to bring it back.
Other Democrat mayors and governors are engaging in equally stupid behavior by letting rioters run amok.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is allowing a full-on insurrection to take place in his city.
And Austin, a deep-blue patch in the state of Texas, has fallen prey to the same lunacy, and with deadly consequences.
Garrett Foster, a Black Lives Matter protester, was shot and killed after brandishing an AK-47 strapped over his shoulder.
Foster and other radical activists were blocking traffic and surrounded a car that was trying to pass through.
According to the driver of the car, he shot Foster five times after Foster allegedly pointed the rifle at him.
Coincidentally, earlier that night, Foster gave an impromptu street interview where he said, “I think all the people that hate us and want to say sh*t to us are too big of p*ssies to stop and actually do anything about it.”
The shooter then drove to safety, and immediately called the cops to turn himself in.
The cops later released him.
Both he and Foster were legal gun owners, but the true cause of the tragedy is the lawlessness that’s been allowed to fester across the country, almost exclusively in Democrat cities.
The driver very likely had reasonable fear that his life was in danger after many motorists have been dragged from their cars and beaten over the last two months.
In Utah, a Black Lives Matter extremist literally shot a driver for no reason, and in Atlanta, an eight-year-old girl was killed because her mother mistakenly drove into a parking lot that was “occupied” by BLM.
Cities cannot allow this lawlessness to continue.
With the media providing them cover, leftist extremists have been given free rein to destroy parts of American cities.
It’s despicable and cowardly.
Unless mayors like Wheeler and Durkan start enforcing the law, tragic episodes like this will only continue to happen.
But apparently hating Trump is more important than protecting lives.
