(FreedomJournal.org)- Need more proof that these riots aren’t really about honoring George Floyd? Take a look at the video below that shows a group of teenagers and children looting a Fine Wine & Good Spirits shop in Philadelphia. The robbery took place on Sunday as Philadelphia erupted into riots and looting, just like countless other major American Cities died.

Riots began last week after the death of George Floyd, an African American man who was arrested after allegedly using a fake $20 note in a store. Former police officer Derek Chauvin, who has since been fired and charged with third-degree murder, kneeled on Floyd’s neck for eight minutes during his arrest which resulted in the death of Floyd.
In Philadelphia, KYWNewsradio reporter Kristen Johanson shared footage of young people looting the shop on Broad Street and Allegheny Avenue. The footage shows people running out of the shop holding bottles of wine and liquer.
“Broad & Allegheny… total looting and rioting in #North Philly,” she wrote. “They are NOT protesters. Phone knocked outta my hand as cars pulled up and people ran out to grab bottles. Seemed almost organized.”
In her report, Johanson explained how most of the people looting were kids, and that looting was also taking place at other nearby stores including the T-Mobile phone shop.
“You can smell the smell of alcohol,” she said. “These are kids for the most part. I do see a couple of teenagers, but they are running in there and only one cop so far have I seen in the area in North Philadelphia.”
Scenes like these have been replicated all over the United States. Local and state governments have increased the presence of the National Guard following a weekend of violent protesting. A further 5,000 National Guard servicemen and women have been deployed across 15 states and the nation’s capital, according to the National Guard Chief Gen. Joseph Lengyel.
After a weekend of violence not seen in the United States for decades, President Trump urged governors and mayors to get tough.
Get tough Democrat Mayors and Governors. These people are ANARCHISTS. Call in our National Guard NOW. The World is watching and laughing at you and Sleepy Joe. Is this what America wants? NO!!!
