Last weekend, the summer chaos and unrest affecting Portland, Kenosha and Washington, DC spread to other cities.

Rochester

This city in upstate New York was disrupted by violence on Friday, September 4.

This was in retaliation for the death of a local man in March. Police were attempting to take him into custody.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle (via MSN) reported:

Daniel Prude died in March of asphyxiation after Rochester police officers trying to take him into protective custody pinned him to the ground while restraining him on March 23. The death has been ruled a homicide and is under investigation by the state Attorney General’s Office.

Video of that interaction was released Sept. 2 and has prompted daily protests by people outraged over it. The union representing the seven police officers in the video has said the cops were following protocols

A hostile march took place:

The article has photos of the mob disturbing outdoor diners who wanted a pleasant evening out:

Several thousand people marched down East Avenue from downtown, and turned right on Alexander Street before approaching restaurants with diners eating outside at around 9:35 p.m.

Video footage shows protesters crowding the landing at Swan Dive on Alexander Street. Some cleared tables of people eating outside, causing the diners to get up and leave. A chair was thrown toward the building and a number of protesters can be heard decrying that behavior.

Minutes later, members of the group crossed the street and entered an outdoor seating area at Ox and Stone, where several large groups of diners were seated. Chairs were overturned and glasses were shattered on the tables as protesters motioned for the dining groups to get up and leave.

Here’s a video, also included in the article:

Protesters also lit a fire:

The next day, a city councillor blamed Rochester Police for the violence (hmm):

Earlier on Friday, it appears as if people were filling jerrycans with petrol then hiding them in rucksacks.

This photo was taken at the same petrol station:

Protests continued the following night:

Louisville, Kentucky

Because of coronavirus, the Kentucky Derby, which takes place at Churchill Downs, was postponed to Saturday, September 5.

Spectators could not attend this year, but one group, not interested in horse racing, showed up across the street:

Interesting. In the UK, walking around in paramilitary uniforms is illegal, although the police ignored one group in London dressed that way this summer.

Their spokesman gave the group’s grievances to the police guarding Churchill Downs. Afterwards, they left:

Dallas, Texas

On Saturday, ex-Democrat Brandon Straka, a hairdresser from New York City, held a rally in Dallas.

Straka founded the #WalkAway movement to encourage Democrats to leave their party in support President Trump. #WalkAway has been growing by leaps and bounds in the past year:

Unfortunately, a BLM protester assaulted #WalkAway’s security guard. Police arrested the security guard!

Afterwards, Brandon and his organisers were en route to the police station when they were set upon by violent protesters. Note that the protesters are supposed to be gay-friendly and feminists. Therefore, does #WalkAway have the ‘wrong kind’ of gays and women because they support Trump?

Fortunately, this sad episode seems to have had a just ending:

I was struck by the sentence (two tweets above) saying that all the Dallas news stations were there when protesters were chasing Brandon and his team.

How does that happen?

This article, ‘Reality Hacking Caught By Patriots — The GuginoGate Timeline’, explains. It tells the story of how a 75-year-old activist, Michael Gugino, had a confrontation with police in Buffalo, New York, on June 4 this year.

Interestingly, an NPR reporter was also there at the scene. The article has a photo of both men talking to each other before the confrontation.

The media reported that the man was trying to shake the hands of the policemen, but a closer view shows him with a mobile phone in his hand. It looks as if he was filming their weapons, a definite no-no:

Most of the media outlets covering the story said that police knocked an innocent, elderly man to the ground for no reason.

However, the New York Post ran an article saying that, according to Buffalo’s mayor, the man was disobeying requests from the police to leave the area.

In any event, he was rushed to hospital:

But I digress. I only meant to illustrate that media must be getting tip-offs on where to be and when.

OAN has a two-part series by Jack Posobiec on what might happen as the presidential campaign season progresses. I haven’t seen it, but this is the trailer:

As for Portland, Oregon, here is more information on the shooter, whom the Feds shot fatally in Washington State last week:

Team Trump have put out a new advert:

On a much brighter note, I’ll close with the Trump flotillas:

MAGA!

Heartfelt thanks to all the many ex-Democrats who now intend to vote for President Trump. They are always welcome aboard the Trump Train.
