It just goes to show that the police are not going to help you during times of great unrest...

They were breaking into stores up and down Broad Street in Richmond overnight and the police could not stop it.

They burned a DTLR and stole all the bikes from Balance Bicycle Shop.

Here's a statement the company posted on its website:

"Balance Bicycle shop was broken into and looted during the overnight riots. A majority of our inventory was taken, to include every customer bike that dropped off and left with us. We don't have any answers just yet, and we will be reaching out to all of our customers who had bikes in for service over the next week. Our phone lines are off right now, so please use the form below as we begin to understand the devastation. I will be working with our insurance company moving forward. I have no words, only tears as 10 years of my life evaporates in 1 night."

IS IT a form of terrorism that causes shops in Richmond, VA to scrawl 'black lives matter' across their boarded up windows, lest they be destroyed in some future act of vandalism???

it doesn't matter what you say or do, as long as no one is there to actually stop them, they will carry out their agendas. Witness the witless former Richmond police chief, speaking, apologizing, kneeling to the mob, and then just as swiftly, he was terminated, figuratively had his head handed to him. Resignation my big ol' butt!!!

Better descriptor...
kowtow verb | kow·tow | \ (ˌ)kau̇-ˈtau̇ | ˈkau̇-ˌtau̇ | kowtowed; kowtowing; kowtows

intransitive verb
1 : to show obsequious deference : fawn kowtows to the boss
2 : to kneel and touch the forehead to the ground in token of homage, worship, or deep respect
