The mob wasn't satisfied with destroying statues, so now they're coming for your homes and families

Statues starting coming down in June. It’s mid-August, and the "peaceful protestors" are roaming through residential neighbourhoods yelling at people in their homes. We heard from activists and agitators that the statues had to come down, that they were symbols of an unsavory past and could not blight our town centers any longer.

In dozens of instances, the statues came down, but the protestors have not been appeased. Protestors are no longer intent on destroying statues and public property; they are now moving on to people.

We hear so often that property damage isn't violence. Ariel Atkins tells us that looting is merely reparations. The New York Times’ Nikole Hannah-Jones said that "Yes, it is disturbing to see property being destroyed, it's disturbing to see people taking property from stores, but these are things."

So when the fight moves from statues, government buildings, and town squares out into neighbourhoods, is that violence? Or is it merely people making use of their right to freely assemble on residential streets?

Colorado saw protestors marching through a residential neighbourhood to the home of Sgt. Alan Van't Land, who is alleged to have shot and killed Devon Bailey. Protestors called out to him through a megaphone, demanding that he "come out and turn [him]self in."

They prevented residents of the area from driving to their homes. While still others performed improvisational dances in front of random homes.
