There has been a great deal of civil unrest in the United States. In 2020, demonstrations across the country were organized by an activist movement called Antifa. The Antifa movement has been a powerful force in the United States and displayed its power when it recently took control of major segments of cities like Seattle and Washington DC as “Autonomous Zones”. These zones are “cop-free” and are being policed by Antifa organizations.
These demonstrations quickly turned into riots, burning thousands of police vehicles across the country in major US cities like New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles. These riots and how they are described in the media will only hurt officers in the long run and strengthen ANTIFAs mission.
