Trump took too long sending in additional Federal law enforcement personnel to defend Federal property and Federal personnel. The violent extremists tossing firebombs at the Federal courthouse and ripping down a fence around it are committing serious Federal crimes. Their actions are proclaimed by many of them to be part of deliberate chaos intended to bring down the country. The cause of justice for George Floyd has been long forgotten. The nightly protests morphing on cue into violence had gone on for a month before Federal forces were reinforced. When conducting raids and arrests of drug cartels, organized crime, violent political extremists, and terrorists, it is standard practice for police to not show any personal identifying insignia. This is for security reasons to protect families of officers from retaliation. There is nothing improper about it. My only complaint is that they haven’t arrested enough of the offenders to achieve peace on the streets or at least keep the courthouse safe.
