Church Burned Down During Anti-Police Riots In Wisconsin, Report Says

A church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was reportedly burned down Tuesday night amid the violent anti-police riots that broke out across the city at the start of the week.
The violence started on Sunday after law enforcement officials shot Jacob Blake, 29, while responding to a domestic incident. Wisconsin authorities are investigating the shooting to see if there was any misconduct by any of the officers involved.
Hours later, riots and looting broke out across Kenosha and businesses were destroyed. A police officer was also reportedly knock out when he was struck with a brick.
The riots extended into the early morning hours on Monday and then picked up again on Monday night and extended into the early morning hours on Tuesday.
“Residents emerged from their houses around midnight to gape at billowing smoke that could be seen for miles. Lost in the blaze, neighbors said, was a mattress store, a storefront church, a Mexican restaurant and a cellphone store,” The New York Times reported. “Less than a mile away, a probation and parole office was also on fire.”

  1. Don't let your opinions get in the way of actual facts......

    Despite repeated Trump administration assertions that the Antifa movement has hijacked the ongoing protests around the country sparked by the police killing of George Floyd, a new federal intelligence bulletin points to white supremacists and other would-be domestic terrorists as the main problem lurking behind potentially lethal violence.

    Though the document issued by the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and National Counterterrorism Center also includes a warning to law enforcement about anarchist extremists, it makes only a limited mention of the left-leaning, loosely affiliated Antifa movement, and appears to undercut recent criticisms of the movement by President Trump and top administration officials.

    “Based upon current information, we assess the greatest threat of lethal violence continues to emanate from lone offenders with racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist ideologies and [domestic violent extremists] with personalized ideologies,”

    1. You say: "a new federal intelligence bulletin points to white supremacists"
      but you quote this: "we assess the greatest threat of lethal violence continues to emanate from lone offenders with racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist ideologies"

      How does that specifically implicate "white supremacists"? We are certainly seeing racial supremacists -- but they are all black extremists who are marginalizing, denigrating, and attacking innocent whites. Even people who say "All Lives Matter" instead of "Black Lives Matter" are attacked. That's not white supremacists, that is black supremacists.
