It's supposed to get worse tonight.
I used to live in a condo in the area that was burned last night. The Governor and mayor have evidence out of state agitators-organizers are behind this. The protest has moved away from being about George Floyd and turned into an attack against civil society. What the want is destruction. Tonight is supposed to be worse.
The fires last night were only 2 miles from my house.
I don't know what else to say. I don't like the politics against leadership and how they are handling this. No one was ready for this. No one expected this. There are so many poor people now displaced by fires, now unable to get food and supplies. They lost income because of COVID - now this.
Someone online made a joke about looting a Dollar Store - but poor people really buy their supplies in stores like that. It makes me sad, because we are so privileged we don't realize the plight of the poor in our own cities. It breaks my heart.
