[NetBehaviour] current story

Stay safe Alan.  I truly believe this is not protest, nor anything to do with justice for George Floyd.

There's footage now of a young white Chicago man handing out explosive devices to people in my neighborhood last week telling them to throw them at the police station.  He livestreamed himself doing it if you can imagine.

Be hopeful too.  The national guard being here has stopped the insanity at night, not by any use of force but just by having some level of civil authority present.  They have behaved professionally.  The curfew has helped too, allowing police to find the violent instigators and get fire trucks to the fires. The real protests are thriving during the day, with wonderful grace.  People are helping each other, connecting, and healing, distributing food, cleaning up, and grieving.

It's our turn now, riots and fire downtown central Providence, a few
blocks from here. We knew about it ahead of time. There were warnings.
Looting in a relatively poor city. We can hear explosions going off, what
sounded like fireworks and gunfire. I can't think straight. I want to get
the hell out of this country. This is way beyond protest, this is
ultraviolence here. Louder explosions now.

The warnings were four or five hours ago. So people were coming in to
cause trouble. Earlier there were white motorcycle gangs around.

Apologies, can't think straight.
