A Cleveland clothing shop was vandalized less than 24 hours after they opened back up for business.

The vandal threw a brick through CLE Clothing Co.’s East 4th Street shop window and stole some women’s t-shirts.

Local businesses like CLE Clothing Co. have been some of the hardest hit during the nationwide shutdowns amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The company announced the vandalism and robbery in an Instagram post, writing “we haven’t even been open 24 hours and someone thought it would be cool to throw a brick through our window, steal some women’s tees and only to get arrested 30 minutes later…”

“You can break glass, but you can’t break us,” the shop’s Instagram post continued.

“Thank you to the great officers at the CPD. We recovered most of what was taken (it’s quarantined) some is still strewn down E. 6th Street. So enjoy your CLE freebie I guess…anyway we’re open downtown for now until another window falls then we may have to rethink some inventory strategies and maybe go back online….we only have so many windows,” the added with a laughing emoji.

“Please continue to support all of our local businesses. We need you now more than ever,” the post concluded.

Police have not yet announced charges or the name of the suspect.

Ohio’s stay-at-home order has been extended through May 29, but some businesses have been able to reopen.

Law enforcement officers in some cities are reporting an uptick in robberies as criminals take advantage of the fact that most people are wearing masks.

Santa Ana police said on Thursday that robberies in the city have increased by 50% since the city’s stay-at-home orders were implemented.

“It’s the norm,” Cpl. Anthony Bertagna, with Santa Ana PD, said. “So we’re seeing more and more suspects wearing the mask and using that to their benefit.”

Elias Khawan, the owner of a gas station and convenience store that was robbed last Friday told CBS Los Angeles that the mask requirements are placing his staff in danger.

“It’s horrible,” he said. “I mean, I know we have to take certain measures because of what’s happening with COVID-19, but it’s the perfect script or manual for a robber — the mask, the sunshade and a hoodie. You don’t know who’s coming, who’s walking in.”

Rochester PD Seeks Help IDing Thugs Who Attacked Elderly Couple Trying to Protect Their Home

Police have now released security footage that may help to identify the brutal criminals.

Rochester Police are seeking the public’s help to identify a gang of rioters who violently attacked an elderly couple that was trying to protect their home from the looters.

Police have now released security footage that may help to identify the brutal criminals.

“Do you know any of these men? Yesterday, May 30, these men violently attacked a store owner & her husband who were trying to protect their business from being looted. Please look at the video & still images. If you know any of them, please call Crime Stoppers @ 423-9300,” the Patrol Section Investigations for the Rochester Police Department said in a tweet.

They also released still images of the men they are attempting to identify.

In the shocking video footage of the incident, the woman pleads with the men who are terrorizing her to stop as they are smashing the Rochester Fire Equipment Company and the jewelry store next door. The criminals were attempting to loot the jewelry store.

The couple lives in an apartment above the shops.

The men continue menacing her and it seems like they may leave, then one of them turns and begins attacking her.

Her husband then runs over with a golf club and starts swinging, and is also brutally attacked, as he yelled for them to get away from his wife.

A man named Joe Painter was coming home from grocery shopping when he saw the incident happening and began filming.

“Painter, who says he is a veteran of the War in Afghanistan, says it was one of the worst things he’s ever witnessed. He said he stopped recording abruptly because some of the people who attacked the woman in the video started running toward him,” WHAM reported.

Riots have completely overtaken most major cities for the last few days following the death of a black man in custody of Minneapolis Police officers. Democrat leaders have been reluctant to seem unsympathetic to the cause, so they have allowed looting, rioting, kidnapping, arson, and even murder to continue for days.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of small businesses have been destroyed in the mayhem.

You Love To See It: Rich Writer Cheers Rioters Burning Poor Areas, Calls Them ‘Animals’ When They Get To His

This is the best “life comes at you fast” of all time.

Published

A rich NBA writer was gleefully cheering as Minneapolis rioters burned down poor neighborhoods, but quickly changed his tune when they got to his area.

Chris Martin Palmer, a well known sportswriter, was tweeting things like “burn that sh-t down. Burn it all down,” when the rioters burned down an affordable housing project that was under construction.

Just days later, the riots began to creep closer to his home in a Los Angeles gated community, at which time the rioters became “animals.”

“They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and now are in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live,” Palmer wrote, referring to the lower income areas they previously destroyed.

“Tear up your own shit. Don’t come to where we live at and tear our neighborhood up. We care about our community. If you don’t care about yours I don’t give a shit,” he added.

As he got called out on Twitter, he pretended that he only supported “peaceful” protesters all along, and wasn’t cheering for the arson.

“Make no mistake about it those who were looting were not protestors. They were criminals who just blended in. Hell bent on stealing and property destruction. When the legit protestors left midday everything went off the rails,” he wrote.

When someone tweeted at him saying “you can’t be with the chaos one minute then when it’s at your front door you switch it up,” to which the hypocrite replied “you better damn well believe I can.”

He was ratioed, of course.

Hilariously, Palmer also attended the riots and bragged about being tear gassed, in someone else’s neighborhood, of course.

The people who “don’t care” about their communities are people like this elderly disabled woman who now has no where to shop. She tearfully told a reporter that “George is in a better place than we are,” and said that she wanted to “go where George did,” as she watched the rioters destroy her neighborhood.

Funny how Palmer believes the destruction is all fun and games until it threatened him, even though he can actually afford to lose — unlike the woman above.

Dallas Riot Mob Victim Charles Shoultz: I Was ‘Trying to Protect a Bar I Love’

The rioters continued to beat and rob him after he became unresponsive in a viral video that shocked the nation.

The victim of a heinous gang of rioters who brutally mangled his body while stoning him and beating him with a skateboard is speaking out.

The rioters continued to beat and rob him after he became unresponsive in a viral video that shocked the nation.

It turns out that his name is Charles Shoultz, a Catholic writer from Dallas.

He tweeted about the incident on Sunday morning.

“So, hey, funny story. The guy in this video getting his ass kicked? That’s me,” Shoultz tweeted. “I had a bit of an adventure this evening trying to protect a bar I love, one that ended with me in the hospital. But I am quite alive, if a bit worse for wear.”

He added, “and now, if you’ll excuse me, I am dead tired. I was tired before all these people whipped my ass. I’m going to bed. I will explain significantly more when I wake up.”

When asked why he didn’t bring a gun instead of a sword, he wrote “well, I don’t have a gun in my apartment.”

He added, “and I didn’t expect them to rush me more than a dozen at once, or start throwing rocks at me first. I did not think adequately about all this, in hindsight.”

Shoultz said that he has all his teeth, at least.

In new videos of the incident, the mob can be seen throwing rocks at him as he walked down the street. He is then seen charging at one of the rioters before they mob and brutalize him.

The horrifying brutal gang beating was captured on camera by Blaze TV journalist Elijah Schaffer.

“It appears he attempted to defend a shop with a large sword Looters ran at him, then he charged rioters. They then beat him with a skateboard and stoned him with medium sized rocks. I called an Ambulance and it’s on the way,” Schaffer tweeted at the time.

Schaffer added that, “some people were concerned, others laughed at him — and many more continued to loot high end stores around him while he bled out [from] the assault.”

Prior to the attack, Shoultz had tweeted about his barbershop being destroyed and his concern for a book shop in Deep Ellum that he hoped had not been damaged.

Welp, my barbershop in Dallas got destroyed last night,” he tweeted. “Any Catholic Twitter Dallasites know of other good barbershops throughout the city?”

Dallas Morning News reporter Cassandra Jaramillo tweeted early Sunday morning that “DPD source tells me man who was seen getting attacked in a graphic viral video by a group of protesters is in bad shape, but hanging on. His body was literally twisted from getting stomped on and kicked. Happened near House of Blues. Working to get more info #DallasProtests”

“Dallas Police spokesman tells me the victim of the attack is in stable condition and was transported to a hospital. Police say at this time they can not confirm he was defending a business being looted. His identity has not been released at this time”

“More from DPD: the victim was carrying a machete to allegedly ‘protect his neighborhood from protesters.’ The victim confronted protesters while holding the machete and was subsequently assaulted by the protesters. He remains in stable condition,” Jaramillo added.

It is unknown if any arrests have been made, as police and the government have lost control of the city.

Rioting has been ongoing for days in cities across the United States after the death of a black man who was in Minneapolis Police custody. The rioters claim that they are “protesting” for justice. It remains unclear how looting local businesses, terrorizing neighborhoods, committing murders and kidnapping people will provide that.
