This is a small restaurant of a friend of our family in downtown LA. They broke his window last night and he ended up boarding up.
They've been breaking and looting all the downtown shops on lower ground and sadly these are all mostly small businesses that were already suffering. I have a personal video (I don't know how to upload here) also taken of looting stores, people just pushing in and breaking and stealing all kinds of stuff. I don't understand that, honestly...breaking and stealilng things, how does that correlate with a black man's death by police officers?!
What's scary is, LA already had a very infamous history of riots that happened in 1992 over the acquital of 4 white police officers over the beating of an african american man. Now this, and already LA as a large city has always been understaffed with cops, 1 cop for every 400 people, so this situation of looting and destroying innocent businesses is very scary.
