(RepublicanNews.org – From the heartland of America to the West Coast, destructive riots on Monday night, August 24, continued well into Tuesday morning. On Sunday in Kenosha, WI, a black man was shot seven times in the back by police, who claimed the man had a knife, and the shooting was in self-defense.
For the second night in a row, rioters targeted businesses. Two dealerships were affected by fires or looting. In one instance, a small group of people spent approximately an hour trying to put out a car fire to prevent it from spreading to a local home.

In Portland, OR, rioters marched towards the Portland police union headquarters and were met with a rapid response. Police immediately declared the gathering as unlawful. Some individuals were successful in spray-painting the building before officers arrived. In addition, a fire was lit near the building but it was quickly extinguished. Police arrested 25 people during the demonstration.
As rioters in Democratic-led cities continue to drag on, Republicans, at their convention on Monday evening, pointed out Democrats were enabling and empowering destruction and lawlessness in their communities.
