The proximate cause of the riots and looting is the heinous murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police office Derek Chauvin. But the ensuing civil unrest has been co-opted by a host of bad actors like Antifa who have exploited the tragedy. Weak and uncoordinated responses by the nation's Mayors and Governors has made a bad situation much worse. Tragically, the neighborhoods in Minneapolis that have been looted and torched are predominantly minority. The chaos seems likely to continue this week. America's sprawling and decentralized Law Enforcement Infrastructure is slowing down a strong and effective response.
