Skip to comments.It's Official: The George Floyd Riots Were the Most Destructive in U.S. History
Posted on 09/16/2020 3:30:26 PM PDT by rktman
Protests in 140 cities across America in the wake of the death of George Floyd devolved into violent looting and riots that have destroyed black lives, black livelihoods, and black monuments. At least 26 Americans have died in the riots, most of them black. The first two weeks of these deadly riots were officially the most destructive riots in U.S. history when it comes to insurance claims.
The looting, vandalism, and arson that took place between May 26 and June 8, 2020, will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion in paid insurance claims, Axios reported on Wednesday. This total eclipses the $775 million (in 1992 dollars) $1.4 billion (in 2020 dollars) paid out after the Los Angeles riots following the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King. Other riots in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s did not reach $500 million in 2020 dollars.
More than 700 buildings were damaged or destroyed in Minneapolis alone.

What 80 dollars of fentanyl can do.
Pretty impressive for a guy who committed suicide by ingestion of a fatal drug overdose.
Send the Bill to the Chinese Communist Party
And George Soros.
And all over a criminal who fought the cops and then willingly overdosed on fentanyl.
Floyd killed himself.
The leftists and antifa or simply lying in wait on a moments notice to riot
Drone George Soros.
Has anybody done a video with someone as heavy (or heavier) than Derek Chauvin kneeling with his left knee on the neck of someone the same size (or smaller) than George Floyd, for say, 10-15 minutes?
After laying on an unpadded carpeted floor for a few minutes, I (66 yrs old, 6’1”, 185#) had my wife (130#) kneel on my neck, putting maybe 1/3 of her weight there for only a minute, and felt only a slight increase in difficulty breathing than before she put her knee there. And that was mostly because of the added weight on my chest. It seemed like I could manage alright for maybe even a half hour, but not sure; I’m getting old after all. I asked her to put more pressure there, which she did momentarily, until I said, “you better stop, so this old man doesn’t have to go to the chiro”.
Brought to you by the DemonRAT Party. They own it.
Thats strange, CNN told me they were mostly peaceful protests, how does that do $2 billion in damages. Im sure theyll tell me a good excuse as to why any moment now, after they find a way to blame Trump.
Nothing compared to what’s coming.
It’s time to give ole George Floyd a break.
They should be called the DNC Riots.
well that’s intersting since most of the rioting had nothing to do with George Floyd.
When Trump is reelected there will be a lot more violence in the streets and we are just going to have to go for the old fashioned answers that have always worked in the past.
Riot guns stop riots almost instantly. If they don’t, reapply twice more and recheck the situation.
Call the situation something along the lines of the Democrat 2020 election insurrection.
“Nothing compared to whats coming”
Trump will just bring in the Marines like happened in the LA south central riots.
It is called the insurrection act.
