Today Penny and I went for a run down to the beach. Some packages that were scheduled to arrive today by USPS did not come. The post office has been particularly unreliable during the COVID-19 virus. Amazon has been slow but not anywhere as bad as the post office. I had packages set in LA post office for over a week.

Another example of liberal leaders calling evil good and good evil. There have been violent riots in Wisconsin’s capital of Madison, where a group of about 150 demonstrators threw rocks at police officers on Saturday night, according to WITI-TV. At least 75 stores were damaged or looted overnight. Despite the bedlam and property damage, the Madison Police Department only made three arrests.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel politics and statehouse reporter Patrick Marley tweeted, “Police chief says they aren’t arresting people tonight.” Interim Madison Police Chief Vic Wahl said his officers stood back during the protests.

While Madison did not do much to prevent the barrage of looting in the city, officials want citizens to know that church services of more than 50 people will absolutely not be tolerated.

According to the City of Madison’s website, Mass Gathering inside a commercial facility is permitted with fifty (50) individuals or less. Individuals must maintain physical distancing.”

Wisconsin priests were reportedly warned by health officials from Madison and Dane counties that if they opened their churches and had crowds of more than 50 people at their religious services, they face a fine of $1,000. The letter sent out to religious leaders allegedly threatened that there could be “government watchers” present at church services.

Bakery owners in Ohio armed themselves with guns and defended their shop as protests in Cleveland became violent over the weekend.

Rioters attempting to break into family owned Corbo’s Bakery on Saturday using bats and other weapons backed down when they saw co-owner Joe Corbo and his two sons standing inside, armed with guns.

“We don’t want any trouble. We do not want you guys in here damaging our property. We are just protecting our business, and truthfully, I would say maybe 80% of them understood. They left us alone and kept walking, and then, there was that 20% that just were accusing us of some things and crazy things that just were not true. We were not there to hurt anybody or cause a problem. We were just protecting our business,” co-owner Selena Corbo told a local Fox affiliate.

The protesters at first tried to break in despite the guns but then backed away from the scene and moved on to other businesses, according to the local Fox affiliate. The rioters did manage to break one window at the bakery.

“It’s just sickening. I cannot even put it into words — it’s just awful. I mean, I cannot even believe it. I thought we were done with that kind of stuff, you know, years and years ago. I thought Cleveland moved forward. I love our town. I think we’ve all built it up as Clevelanders, and it’s a great place to live, and it just got shot down in a matter of a few hours. It was terrible,” Selena Corbo added.

Corbo’s Bakery was supposed to open Monday after being shuttered for two months due to the coronavirus, but the opening has been delayed.

The weekend was wrought with protest that spiraled into violence across the country in major cities. The demonstrations began after 46-year-old George Floyd died in the custody of Minneapolis police on Monday. Floyd, a black man, died after white Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin restrained him by placing his knee on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

Chauvin and three other officers involved in Floyd’s detainment were fired Tuesday. Chauvin was taken into custody on Friday and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

The owner of a clothing store in Atlanta told “Fox & Friends” on Monday that he “lost everything” after his business was looted and vandalized during riots sparked by the death of George Floyd.

“I came to the United States to make my dreams come true and then now we just don’t know if we’re going to reopen,” said Zola Dias, an immigrant, and the owner of Attom Concept Store.

Kris Shelby, the store manager, who lives near Attom, said that around 1:00 a.m. on Friday he heard glass breaking as he was standing on his balcony.

“I see people running, and then I look down at our store and I just see a sledgehammer and like a bar that holds the ropes to block people off, I seen one of those go through our window and all I could do was just sit back and say, ‘That’s a wrap on that,’” Shelby said.

“And as bad as I wanted to go down there and Zola was like ‘I know you want to go down there, but we need to just sit back for our safety and we need to just take care of it tomorrow morning.’

“But we already knew the damages that were being done,” he continued.

“Insurance doesn’t cover everything and to be honest right now we don’t even know if insurance is going to cover anything,” Shelby said on Monday.

Dias added that the damage from the looting and vandalism adds to the loss from the temporary closure of his store, which was ordered as a way to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
