I’m a resident of Melrose/Fairfax and own a biz in Weho. What I saw last night was not a protest.
I saw mom and pop shops I personally know looted. This wasn’t one group I saw hundreds if not thousands of kids robbing the very businesses that would rally behind them. I saw butcher get robbed, I saw a nail salon robbed. You didn’t get me woke to anything, if anything I am more conflicted on lines than ever. They destroyed my community for sneakers and hoodies last night. Please keep these businesses in your thoughts, as most of us are mom and pops sorry for rant but I’m heart broken
