    When word spread in the South Philly Neighborhood that looters were marching on the local Target Store, the residents mobilized....surrounded the store....locked arms and stopped any damage from happening. Black and white citizens locked arms and said enough is enough....not our store....not tonight ! WELL DONE SOUTH PHILLY....PROUD OF YOU !!

    When the governmental entities that are supposed to protect the public totally abandon their duties, then this is what must be done. It probably would be even better if those people displayed some firepower of their own.

    The feds also have to put their money where their mouth is and start charging those arrested with domestic terrorism charges.

    Awesome....here in CLE when protests got violent they went on a damaging and looting spree. They broke a window of a locally owned restaurant only to find the two owners sitting there with shotguns. Of course, had to looters entered and been shot, they'd be SOL so they left. The "organizers" gave them guidance to only damage and loot "big box stores" because the owners weren't going to be sitting their with shotguns.

    Here in NJ, Newark, Patterson and Camden all had peaceful protests.

    I think white right-wing and left-wing agitators knew they would stick out like a sore thumb in those towns.
    I think it goes to show who is causing a lot of the trouble right now.

    I watched a documentary about the riots in Asbury Park way back in 1970 a few months back. A lot of the people were saying buses of strangers started showing up in town and burning things.

    It's great to hear a story of a community banding together no matter the race or creed but united to protect their community from, likely, outsiders encouraged by organizations. We need to hear more of this unity across the nation. Let the rioters know they don't have free reign no matter the governmental ignoring of the destruction. Why do we pay taxes?

    About ten years ago, the G7 was in Pittsburgh. Bunch of Antifa goons tried trouble in a major biz district. The streets were lined with owners and neighbors carrying baseball bats, shotguns, packing pistols......they quietly and quickly left the area.

    Hope that video gets national airplay. Good lesson for the rest of the country. Great way to put a stop to the looting.
