Rioters who thought that they could get away with another night of bloody mayhem got a nasty surprise when Attorney General Bill Barr announced that more officers are pouring into DC to prevent looters from running amok.
Attorney General William Barr warned Tuesday that additional law enforcement will be deployed to Washington, D.C. tonight as part of an effort to crack down on protests and riots sparked by the death of George Floyd.
“There will be even greater law enforcement resources and support in the region tonight,” Barr continued. “The most basic function of government is to provide security for people to live their lives and exercise their rights, and we will meet that responsibility here in the nation’s capital.”
Barr comments followed a night of reduced rioting on DC after President Trump made the decision to deploy the National Guard:
The streets of D.C. were largely under control Monday evening after President Donald Trump deployed the National Guard to the city. There were only minor instances of violence, with several shop windows smashed on 14th Street. A CVS store was also reportedly looted. Police arrested dozens of protesters in the city for violating the city’s 7:00 p.m. curfew.
Barr and Trump’s response is an example of how to deal with the rioters. Lawless and violent elements respect only one thing – strength. Take note, Frey, DeBlasio and every other cowering liberal mayor in America.
It’s up to the police and the national guard to enforce the law judiciously and justly. With a few exceptions, law enforcement has been doing a great job.
One thing is for certain – the riots won’t be tolerated in America. Violence is unacceptable. It’s about time our leaders stand up for that principle.
