As cities across the countries burn, calls for greater police action in suppressing peaceful yet violent protests have been met with bitter criticism. As a result, Democrat mayors of major cities have found what they believe to be an acceptable compromise.
This past week, officers distributed looting-free zone signs to every store owner.
“We believe this is the best way to deescalate tensions,” said Mayor Frey of Minneapolis. “When they see that someone’s shop is a looting-free zone, protesters will drop their bricks and return to their homes.”
As of Saturday night, we have received confirmation that looters have stolen every one of these signs.
