As the old proverb goes, "violence begets violence". Unfortunately, this is true and we're seeing it lived out today in our country.
The single turning point that started this whole chain of events was the moment when George Floyd was killed after officer Derek Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly eight minutes.
The death of George Floyd, coupled with deaths that have also occurred over the last few years have now led to nationwide protests.
The next link in the chain of violent events is that several of these protests turned into riots in cities across America the past several weeks.
There are various reports that many (if not most) of these riots (but not necessarily the original protests) were instigated by hired agitators whose goal is to initiate violence and destruction.
Last week, another unfortunate link in the chain of violence comes in the form of an interaction between a man on a sidewalk and a passing commuter.
The man on the sidewalk was throwing rocks at passing cars. The driver of one of these cars decided they would take matters into their own hands. In the video (shown below), after the man on the sidewalk threw not one by two rocks at a white car, its driver made a U-turn and chases after the rock slinger.
Be advised that there is a bit of foul language in the video below.
I don't know if the guy who was throwing rocks at cars was a member of Antifa or just a straight up dumbass but justice served! pic.twitter.com/9jfvMyZ0ny

Hopefully, this incident teaches the moron who threw the rock what happens when you act like an idiot. You think something like getting hit by a car would have that sort of effect on a person, but there's no telling with this generation that has absolutely zero respect for other people.
I think the one thing that is going to end all of this nonsense, is time and things getting back to normal.
