Well so far only lynchings of statues, AFAIK.
..but yes, the idea is obviously seeded into the public square.

Perhaps we need to take direction from the koreas, and start
sending pamphlets detailing what communism really is, and how
it really plays out.

My daughter was on I-95 in Jacksonville FL early this morning. There was what she hopes was a dummy hung by a noose off of an overpass. There were several police cars there already trying to figure out what to do. She could not tell if it was made to resemble any particular race.

People around here just assume it was black.

9:43 AM - Jun 20, 2020 · Seattle, WA
The shooting victims apparently were taken to the hospital in private vehicles by people who had been acting as unofficial medics in the CHOP area. After dropping off the victims at Harborview, the CHOP medics walked away with their fists raised in to the air in solidarity.
East Precinct officers initially responded to Cal Anderson Park after receiving reports of a shooting, but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers safe access to the victims, police said. Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP medics.

The CHOP has been the focus of protests for over two weeks. It got its name after police removed barricades that separated protesters from the now-closed East Precinct at 12th Avenue and Pine Street and then retreated from the area.
During the day time it's been rather peaceful at CHOP. But occasionally at night KOMO News has seen things escalate and this appears to be one of those nights.

In the wake of the shooting, Gov. Jay Inslee said he has not yet had a chance to speak with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan or other city leaders about the overnight violence. But he said Seattle's elected city officials need to find a way to provide police and fire services in the CHOP zone without violating citizens' free speech rights.
I certainly believe we need to have a way for the community to speak and for police and fire services to be provided," Inslee said at a Saturday afternoon news conference. "One way or another we obviously need to provide protection to citizens everywhere in the state of Washington, including that particular area, so I wholeheartedly believe that is a necessity.
Homicide detectives are conducting a thorough investigation into the shooting, despite the challenges presented by the circumstances.

Anyone with information about this shooting, or who may have video, is asked to contact the Seattle Police Department’s Violent Crime tip line at (206) 233-5000.
This remains an active and on-going homicide investigation.

Police have largely retreated from the zone after clashes with protesters ended with people throwing things at police and police tear gassing people and using other crowd control munitions. City officials have said they are still communicating with protest leaders, who had pledged to keep the peace in the zone.

The situation has drawn the continued ire of President Donald Trump. His tweets about possibly sending in the military have been met with condemnation from Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Gov. Jay Inslee, both Democrats.

Asian Americans Protest for Black Lives Matter | Downtown Los Angeles
•Jun 20, 2020


Character Media
On June 5, 2020, the city of Los Angeles saw hundreds of peaceful protesters gather downtown to attend the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) for Black Lives Matter rally. Demonstrators surrounded City Hall and marched around Pershing Square, calling for change and denouncing the police brutality that has led to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and more in recent months. However, an overall message of healing and solidarity prevailed throughout the afternoon, with many participating in sing-alongs or simply showing support with a hug. As we celebrate the Juneteenth weekend, let us remember the movements and protests like this one, as well as the countless others throughout history, which continue to pave the way toward equality and true justice for all.

Can someone explain the logic behind allowing protesters to get inches away from cops trying to provoke a reaction?

Using racial slurs, sexist comments, threats, blowing smoke etc.
the game plan of the leftist is to goad DJT into a reaction- preferably an over reaction- should a kent state occur they'd be, literally, ecstatic. . The longer it goes on, the more folks are peeled away from the chaos and destruction side, and move toward law and order (R).

He is letting it sink into the lowest common denominator that this is what you get when you vote D. Despite their wailing and gnashing of teeth, he's continues to show restraint and follow the constitutional guidelines of his power.
Recall the Occupy nonsense. They're using the same play book. It was a major fail then, and it's going to be a major fail once again. We old conservative folks are ready for him to make it stop, but we are not the ones who needed to see the light!

This group, which self-identified as Stand As One, is now getting yelled at by BLM. The two are arguing about the their message. The group who brought the slave demonstration were told to leave and exited Marion Square.

What the heck is on the backs of the two guys on the right? Sorry for the drift, but geesh, what the heck is that?

ugh I tried not to look too closely. It was a theater group, so I "hope!" it was make up designed to look like the whippings slaves would receive.

America today... it could be the real thing eh? : (
