Widespread vandalism and looting during BLM protests will cost the insurance $2 BILLION

Part of the link...

REVEALED: Widespread vandalism and looting during BLM protests will cost the insurance $2 BILLION after violence erupted in 140 cities in the wake of George Floyd's death

  • Unrest in wake of George Floyd's death resulted in record insurance payouts 
  • A total of between $1-2billion in claims have been filed due to property damage 
  • Riots, arson, and looting took place in Minneapolis and spread to 140 cities 
  • Six people died in the rioting and National Guard was called up in 21 states
  • Recent unrest took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after police shot Jacob Blake 
  • Kenosha fire chief says rioting and unrest resulted in $11million in damage 

The rioting, looting, and arson that was seen in some 20 states in the days and weeks following the May 25 police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis could cost the insurance industry up to $2billion in claims, it has been reported.

The previous record for the costliest period of civil unrest in insurance history was set in 1992, when Los Angeles was engulfed in violence for a week after the acquittal of four police officers filmed in the beating of Rodney King.

The Los Angeles riots resulted in $775million in insurance claims being paid out.

 

====================================

 

  • "Riots, arson, and looting took place in Minneapolis and spread to 140 cities"

It started in Minneapolis.

 

 

The protesters keep showing they do not believe in Justice...they just love to riot and loot...look at all the free booze and other "goods" they got when they broke into businesses in Minneapolis. 

 

"Looters are us" should give Minneapolis a gold star.

Here's a recurring pattern in Trump World.

  • Trump makes a promise to the voters
  • Trump BREAKS his promise
  • Trump Cult members never hold him accountable for breaking his promise
  • Trump Cult members always come up with a scapegoat, someone else to blame.
  • Always remember, in Trump World, when things on wrong, it's NEVER his fault.

Just pointing out that they had been given a 'no knock' warrant so they did NOT knock. They just made so much noise in the hallway they woke up the boyfriend and he fired as they came through the door. I can see why you might be confused. They don't issue many no knock warrants in white neighborhoods.  Probably just coincidence.

OK so they didn't knock, they POUNDED...(he said, they said)  The fact is they had reason to be there.

 

Also, from what i've read...they were NOT asleep...rather in bed WATCHING TV.

 

The stupid bleep boyfriend shot, not knowing whether it was friend or foe...Sadly, she died because of HIS actions.

  sunluvngal:

OK so they didn't knock, they POUNDED...(he said, they said)  The fact is they had reason to be there.  Actually they didn't, though they did have a warrant.  The person they were looking for was Breanna's ex-boyfriend, Jamarcis Glover, who used Breanna's address as his current address.  Sloppy Police work.

 

Also, from what i've read...they were NOT asleep...rather in bed WATCHING TV.  From the Attorney General:

 

"When officers were unable to get anyone to answer or open the door to Apartment 4, the decision was made to breach the door. After breaching the door, Sgt. Mattingly was the first and only officer to enter the residence. Sgt. Mattingly identified two individuals standing beside one another at the end of the hall — a male and a female. In his statement, he says that the male was holding a gun, arms extended in a shooting stance

 

Sgt. Mattingly saw the man's gun fire, heard a 'boom' and immediately knew he was shot as a result of feeling heat in his upper thigh. Kenneth Walker fired the shot that hit Sgt. Mattingly. There's no evidence to support that Sgt. Mattingly was hit by friendly fire from other officers. Mr. Walker admitted that he fired one shot and was the first to shoot. In addition to all the testimony, the ballistics report shows that the round the shot Stgt. Mattingly was fired from a 9mm handgun. The LMPD officers fired .40-caliber handguns.

 

Sgt. Mattingly returned fire down the hallway. Mattingly fired six shots, almost simultaneously. Detective Cosgrave, also in the doorway, shot 16 times. This all took place in a matter of seconds. In total, six bullets struck Miss Taylor. Medical evidence obtained by our team indicates that only one shot was fatal. Further medical evidence shows that Miss Taylor would have died from the fatal shot within a few seconds to two minutes after being struck.

 

Detective Hankison fired his weapon 10 times, including from an outside sliding glass door through a bedroom window. Some bullets traveled through Apartment 4 into Apartment 3 before some exited that apartment. At the time, three residents of Apartment 3 were at home, including a male, pregnant female and a child.

 

Read what Daniel Cameron said about the grand jury's findings in the Breonna Taylor case 

 

The stupid bleep boyfriend shot, not knowing whether it was friend or foe... Just like the police and that is why one of them was criminally charged.  Sadly, she died because of HIS actions, or the fact the police busted in the door of an innocent womans apartment.  Had they done adequate surveilance, they would have known the ex was not there, nor were any drugs. Police screw up got one woman killed and a 12 million dollar settlement.  The taxpayors AND the family of Breanna ALL deserve better.

The police did knock and that was verified but the brain dead on the left keep saying that they did not knock, that shows they do as they are told by the BLM cult.

And if you knew what's going on in the world, you would (already) know that President Trump has had to fight a battle with the dems in these cities and states trying to get them to ask him to help stop the violence. To date, many of them have refused to allow him to take care of the insanity going on in their cities.

 

I'm quite sure you already know this BUT...THEY have to ask for him to help before our President can do the job he promised.  But then, that is why they fight him on every corner...so people like you can make those kinds of misleading and false comments.

"Widespread" vandalism and looting.

 

How many protests were there across the country?

 

Vandalism and looting in how many cities?

 

Can you answer these two questions KidBoy2, and still say it is "widespread"?

Widespread vandalism and looting during BLM protests will cost the insurance $2 BILLION

 

Tell the police to kill less black people, that would save us all a lot of money.  We could spend that money in more productive ways.

And the cities are not stopping the BLM cult. I read that George Sores is backing the BLM group with big bucks...much of it to bail out BLM members from jail.

Obey our laws, obey our police and there will be on problems like we have today. What has happened in Louisville is a good example....if people would have obed our laws there would not have been a warrant.

But as I expected the usual left wing posters did not want to understand my post.

If people would have obed our laws there would not have been a warrant and Ms Taylor would be alive and there would not be the BLM cult doing what they do...destroy property and harass our police.

Speaking of obeying our laws...
Had trump obeyed our laws, he wouldn't have been impeached!  Had Flynn, Manafort and Stone obeyed our laws, trump may have stood a chance of being a reasonable President
Had trump had an ounce of integrity, he wouldn't go down as the most corrupt President in history.  It's a slam dunk now....

Or sit peacefully in your apartment and get killed by the Police anyway just as Ms. Taylor did in Louisville; or follow the instructions of the Police and get blown away by a cop, just because...if the Police apologists demanded accountability, instead of making excuses fir the cops, we'd all be in a MUCH better place!

What part of the police knocked (which they weren't required to do) AND her boyfriend shot at police FIRST aren't being being able to admit?!  Miss Taylor would still be alive IF her boyfriend hadn't shot the gun...they knocked, he shot...she died.  The family should be suing the boyfriend instead of the police or whomever...but then i'm sure their lawyer knows they'd get nothing from the boyfriend...hence neither would he.

 

If people would stop putting ALL the blame on our police when anyone gets killed...this would indeed be a much better and peaceful world.

The family should be suing the boyfriend instead of the police or whomever...Why?  The city already tried to buy their silence by paying the family 12 million dollars.

 

but then i'm sure their lawyer knows they'd get nothing from the boyfriend...hence neither would he.  Usual supposotion....

 

If people would stop putting ALL the blame on our police when anyone gets killed...this would indeed be a much better and peaceful world. When the Police start being 100% accountable; and recognize that ALL Americans are covered under the Bill of Rights, this would indeed be a better country, and some might even be able to stomach trump a little more....just some, mind you....

"All people" includes the police.  Tell them to stop shooting unarmed black men running away in the back multiple times and killing them. That man was breaking no law, so much for you saying "the police would not kill anyone"

So concerning the unarmed Black deaths being protested...who was armed or threatening to police?

The whole point was that they were unarmed.

Are you talking Louisville?   In that case, the drug dealer shot through the door aimed at police so they defended themselves by shooting back.  Unfortunately, things go wrong when you hang out with a drug dealer!  First of all I hate "no knock warrants" because they cause more harm then they do good!

And the rabid, violent Trump supporting militias have EVERYTHING to do with Trump!

Trump's hate filled rhetoric + Trump's denial of systemic racism + Trump's introduction of his rabid, violent militias into peaceful protests = civil unrest with the militias instigating riots!
