Activists Call for DC Police to Be Burned to the Ground

Activists Call for DC to Be Burned to the Ground

( – Protests kicked off in cities across the country this week after Daunte Wright was accidentally killed by a police officer in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. The 20-year-old died from a single gunshot to the chest after a veteran police officer allegedly mistook her gun for her taser. As is usually the case, the protests turned to riots rather quickly, and what a group was chanting in Washington, DC was especially disturbing.

According to an April 14 Fox News report, a video is circulating of protesters in DC who appear to be chanting “Burn the precinct to the ground” during a demonstration. The crowd doesn’t just say the police precinct in a specific town needs to be burned, that would be bad enough; they say it should happen in “every city [and] every town.”

This isn’t the first time protesters have chanted something so vile. In 2015, a video spread of protesters chanting,”Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.” Aren’t these the same people who say they don’t have problems with “all cops,” just the “bad ones” need to go? It certainly sounds like their problem is with all cops.
