President Joe Biden failed to acknowledge the mega $1B worth of damages that took place last year due to riots while praising George Floyd’s supporters recently.
Media reports confirmed how the mega riots and protests carried out by the Black Lives Matter Movement as they fought for George Floyd’s justice entailed a mega expense that rounds up to around one billion US dollars. This includes all the looting, arson attacks, vandalism, rioting, and events that were even worse than that such as major property damage.
Yet, the President failed to acknowledge all of that and instead, focused more on praising George Floyd’s supporters. The news came yesterday in the afternoon after the verdict for the Derek Chauvin case was announced by the Judge after the jury carried out their deliberations.
The former cop from Minneapolis was found guilty of all three of his charges, giving a verdict that lit up the faces of all those who waited anxiously for justice.
The President went on to add how the protesters showed great peace in purpose when carrying out their demonstrations, which had plenty of people shocked. He used that for the description of the countless marches that were held last year in support of justice for George Floyd.
However, Biden made zero mention of any rioting that took place, although authorities around the country had produced warnings regarding so many bad actors whose ultimate purpose was to exploit the legit protests so that they could carry out looting, violence, and arson attacks, alongside property damage too.
Some of the cases also included murder crimes as well, mentioned sources.
Over the months, countless cities in the US witnessed repeated protests over the next few weeks, following Floyd’s death which took place on May 25th in 2020.
