Pallets Of Bricks Strategically Placed On Protest Routes Stoking Violence, But Who Placed Them?

NEW YORK (VINnews) — Rioters protesting the death of George Floyd have resorted in many instances to throwing bricks positioned on the streets where the protests are taking place, according to a report by the Washington Examiner. In a number of cases the pallets of bricks appear to have been strategically placed on the routes of protests in order to enable the more extreme protesters to use them.

The Kansas City Police Department reported Sunday that it found “stashes of bricks and rocks” where protesters have rioted and urged people to alert 911 if they come across such caches.

There have been other complaints about bricks which have been used during riots. New York City reporter Kevin Hogan posted a clip of protesters gleefully discovering and stealing bricks on the route of their protests, despite the fact that no construction was taking place nearby.

Protesters taking part in the demonstrations against police brutality have reported finding large stashes of bricks on the streets.

Videos from New York City, Kansas City, Dallas and Fayetteville in North Carolina all appear to show piles of bricks unattended in the middle of protests.

The footage has led to suggestions the slabs were either planted by police or by extremists to overshadow peaceful protests taking place in these cities and stoke violence.

Some social media users believe them to have been planted by police so rioters could be issued more severe charges, while others blamed outside agitators attempting to stir up more trouble.

‘Looks like a set up to me,’ tweeted protest supporter ICE T, who has often spoken out against police brutality. ‘There’s ALWAYS more than meets the eye,’ he continued.

U.S. officials say they are investigating whether extremist groups have infiltrated police brutality protests.

Authorities are said to be looking into whether these groups deliberately tipped the demonstrations towards violence after chaos erupted in dozens of American cities this weekend.

In Washington, where protesters raged outside the White House, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said the groups seemed, at the least, organized to destroy with tools to break windows and distribute materials.

John Miller, the NYPD’s deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism, said the NYPD has a ‘high degree of confidence anarchist groups planned violent interactions and vandalism.’

  1. Nebech, these are well known tactics of violence which Antifa groups use.

    It is familiar in the California Bay area of San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley etc. when antifa is involved.

    • Nebech, these are well known tactics of violence which Trump white supremacist groups use.

      It is familiar in the California Bay area of San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley etc. when antifa is involved.

      • Just because they call themselves that doesn’t mean they are, just like every country that calls themselves a democratic peoples republic is a commie dictatorship.

        • Nazis are Nazis, Anti-Semites are Anti Semites, Pro-Israel are people who love Israel, Anti Israel are people who are against Israel, ANTIFAscist are against Nazis no matter how you and trump will try to twist it. I am sorry you couldnt figure this out before. Just a click away and you will understand what Antifa means. ANTIFASCIST You can call it teror arm or whatever you wish (This is a free country) just like many who call Our IDF a terrorist organisation.

          • I’ll say it again, you are an ignorant fool, the name means nothing if they act like terrorists, is North Korea not a commie dictatorship because the name of the country is Democratic People’s Republic of Korea oh and the full name of the Nazi party is National Socialist German Workers’ Party so does that mean they weren’t fascists?

    • OK, please post your name and address. We’ll make very certain that when rioters attack your home or business, there will be no “police violence” to save you. Because you apparently believe that the way to end the rioting and looting is by turning the other cheek.

    • No its called police law and order and end violence. You can’t be nice to these animals. Anyone who starts looting shoot to kill. Yes shoot to kill. One is allowed to protest but not to step out and start looting. The only way to stop this is to show e mean business. Yes shoot to kill and don’t stop bec of bad media or PR.

      • Such anger… Better hope others don’t take up this call for all sorts of violence against those who commit the white collar type of looting. On programs illegally, go to jail for life. Commit insurance fraud, the gallows. Bank fraud, off with the head. Not social-distancing shoot on sight.

        Sigh. What an idiot.

      • Rodef Archy, so should they shoot to kill you for all of the misinformation that you have posted on this site? These guys destroy property – your stupidity has destroyed lives!

    • Ignorance. Trump does not, and cannot order Police Departments to do anything. The authority lies strictly with the Mayors of the various cities

      • Let trump do what he cannot do. Order them or send the troops in. This is not a time to follow the “law” when we can CVS get killed. Are you waiting for another yankel roesnbaum? Never again. In germany they fillowed the damn law to. Ignore the law and order cops to kill

        • So, Archy, you no longer believe in this being a country of laws, not men? That we can simply ignore laws we don’t like, violate the constitution, and give cops the right to kill protesters?
          I don’t know how educated you are but those tactics line up pretty well with the definition of fascist.

      • You cannot dictate logic or facts to some people, they have to have a comprehension level that they do not have. If you own a business that you have put your life into and people destroy it I think people may then understand.

  2. Back in 1965 there were riots in many U.S. cities. We were living in Chicago that year and I remember Mayor Daley of Chicago announcing on the radio that he is authorizing his police officers to shoot to kill any looters. They killed 2 looters and the riots in Chicago stopped while in the rest of the U.S. they continued. There is nothing wrong with peaceful protests but once people start burning and looting there’s nothing wrong with using force because that’s all the looters understand.

    • Yehuda, let me enlighten you about your former Mayor Daley. At the Chicago Democratic Convention n 1968, Daley unleashed his cops on the demonstrators. The cops even went after tourists who were in the area, as well as beating reporters and without mercy. When Senator Abraham Ribicoff of Connecticut protested the brutal actions of the Chicago cops, Daley shouted out “sit down, you filthy Jew”. ,The latter scene was witnessed by Yitzchak Rabin, who was the Israeli Ambassador to the USA, at the time, and who later reported on Daley’s anti-semitism. Incidentally, a report of the actions of the Chicago cops, termed their actions “a police riot”. We don’t want to see that occur again.

  3. There are a couple of antifa leftists on this site such as Golden Medina , yaakov doe and some other wack jobs I have a feeling most of them are the same self hating Jews

    • I have no affiliation with Antifa and don’t have any awareness of their membership or beliefs. I do belong to 2 shuls and both Agudath Israel and the Orthodox Union so I don’t think I qualify as a “self hating” Jew. I was very involved with the NYPD for over 30 years and consider myself as a moderate in all secular matters.
      Inept Donald Trump is an unfit President!

      • If you don’t think the police should commit a massacre then you are Antifa… At least that is what I get from the comments here.

      • No need to worry. Your guy, Joe Biden, will lead you to the promised land. He’s just the guy we need right now to salvage the sinking ship. He is a natural born leader. He exudes confidence. He is the Joseph – Yosef of our generation.

      • so go vote for Dementia Joe and which ever leftwing anti Israel anti religious freedom vp he picks.

  4. Yehudah you are correct mayor Daly did say shot if they destroy private property and it ended but NY mayor John Lindsey allowed it to continue

  5. In this age pf police cameras and license plate readers it ought to be easy to find who delivered these bricks and trace back to who placed the order. This should be great fun.

  6. I’m a Jew and I’m not antifa. Antifa wants to destroy the us government and I don’t. I pray as my siddur reads for this government. Antifa are also fascists and I’m not.

  7. Just bricks ? I was hoping they would have cartons upon cartons of eggs and leftover pizza and crates of tomatoes and crates of rotten apples ,,,,, common if you doing it , do it right !!!!!
