    Hollywood has a huge crowd of protesters which will possibly become another hot spot.

    There was some action in Pittsburgh.

    It seems to be the same old anarchy crowd just using this as an excuse to destroy things

    yup, people reporting that they'd be peacefully protesting, then a bunch of guys rolls up, start smashing windows and setting fires, then just leaving. Seems like a dangerously mixed bag of characters. Also, police aren't helping any since literally everything is filmed, and some are acting out like the cop that killed george. I seen one video where an elderly man with a cane standing by a bus stop, likely confused, was pushed to the ground by police. Militarized police is the kind of stuff that is really setting people off and will undoubtably result in more deaths and destruction.

    I took a walk through my neighborhood and it was extremely disturbing. Some of the restaurants and shops that I frequent were badly damaged. However, I had a chat with another local resident and we were glad that it happened where it did. In the early 90s, LA experience a riot that impacted South LA. To this day, the area has not fully recovered from the devastation. We both concluded that it was horrific, but economically the establishments will be rebuilt and the area will return back to its grander. It’s was refreshing to see adults have open dialogue about the “root” and not lament on burned down businesses and broken windows. Economically vibrant communities will regroup because that’s how it always is and those less economically well off will suffer.

    I’m not saying that my community is a utopia ...because it’s not! I had a random person ask me in my neighboring city of Beverly Hills-why are you jogging here? I know you don’t live in Beverly Hills...I was not at a loss for words, because stupid things like this happen on occasion. The lady that rushes to close her car door as I approach her in the parking lot of the grocery store (I had to say, no I don’t want your Honda Civic...the Mercedes next to you belongs to me). In these situations, my life was not in jeopardy, but they do remain part of how you construct and conceptualize race and black identity. Due to my life experiences, I‘m able to navigate these moments with ease and realize that I don’t have to explain why I exist in a space. I don’t allow incidents like that to go unaddressed
    nor do I tolerate them in my workspace or within the dynamics of my family. I’ve called my father to the table when he makes off colored remarks that he’s oblivious about. That’s how you make spaces better for all people, it’s not that damn hard!
    I have a friend who is black and she was an attorney for the city (now in private practice and doing really well). She moved into a nice upscale apartment and the day she moved in, as she was unloading her moving truck, some racist punk (or two or more) called the cops on her because the "neighbors" couldn't believe that she actually lived there. Just nasty nasty hurtful stuff.

    The landscape of Glendale (Americana) might be a potential target because of its layout. I’m hopeful that the local governments are more proactive and properly laying out a plan of action. I was shocked by the inability of the city of Santa Monica to effectively address the potential threat. It didn’t take a rocket scientist...to foresee what the outcome would be after the protest centered at Fairfax and 3rd.

    My prediction for Monday is the looters will hit the beach cities on Monday. Torrance Del Amo mall, Redondo Galleria mall, Hermosa Beach, Malibu, etc. All affluent communities with high end shops.

    There is a lot of bad data being reported. Initially, the Governor of Minnesota noted that the majority of agitators were from out of state. After the data was fact checked, the statement was walked back, and essentially all the individuals were from within the state.
