    No problem with violence. Throw that brick at me and find out (not you literally).
    I would submit that dropping a pallet of bricks off in the middle of a city, with no discernable need for it nearby, would be prime bait for LEO to stake out. And yeah, nab the driver and find out the who/when/where it was paid for. There needs to be intel gathered to bust those higher on the food chain.

    Please excuse any hostility perceived from my previous posts. This is just starting to piss me off.

    I agree with Arik in that I'm sitting here on my laptop with a cold one waiting for dinner. The world isn't ending for me. My wife and I live out in the sticks but shop in what would be considered suburbia (not at night either) and generally pay attention if there's trouble. There hasn't been thus far, and we both work in the city to boot. So other than watching the news or the internet we have been untouched. I hope it stays that way but I am preparing for if it does go south. Not "The Big One" but a riot-related criminal act.

    We also worked through the whole COVID thing. We are lucky ("blessed" if you are the religious type) and I don't look that gift horse in the mouth.

    Ditto, sorta--while not as dialed-in as I'd like out here in the suburban foothills and not as far from the Concrete Jungle as I'd like, since I telecommute work has been unaffected (though with Main Office being in Italy it's made a few challenges with everybody on telecommute). Biggest nuisances have been reduced bus schedules when I need to go run Crabzilla the Bedridden's errands and reduction of restaurant menus/services complicating my keto diet and lunches when I help my seventysomething aunt with her groceries/mail/etc twice a week. No worry about keeping a roof (or floor as some here see it since I'm "just a filthy undesirable civilian basement dweller") over my head or my next meal, and we're debt free. I have no doubt that God is watching over me and my folks and taking special care of us, probably better than some of us deserve...

    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    On the losing end, an Atlanta gun store was broken into and 43 handguns were stolen. One had a price tag of over $4000. Must be a Wilson.

    On a street corner today in front of Hardee's was about 15 people holding up the usual "Black Lives Matter", "Justice for George", etc. Looked like maybe a church group.

    Getting pretty sporty here in Mayberry.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    I have to keep this vague since it's from my work and all protected by NDAs.

    I work in communications infrastructure construction. We got an email this morning from a carrier that this Saturday 6/6/20 is Global 5G Protest Day and there are threats against the power grid and communications infrastructure as part of the current civil unrest.

    It was essentially a CYA for anyone working for them to not engage protestors, call LE if you see any attacks, etc.

    This is the first I've heard of this so it will be interesting to see what happens.

    Anyone in the business knows how fragile the comms infrastructure is and how easy it would be to take down all comms for huge areas.

    I suppose keeping your vehicle full of fuel and a bunch of cash on hand is the only way to be prepared.

    Quick at-a-glance radar site you guys might find useful: [StateName].liveuamap.com - I've been using it to keep tabs on the Seattle/Bellevue riots. Patch.com might also be worth monitoring.
