Pallets of bricks have 'randomly' appeared during protests across the US this weekend, sparking theories they were planted to stoke violence. Those taking part in demonstrations against police brutality have reported finding large stashes of the makeshift weapons on streets. Videos from New York City, Kansas City, Dallas and Fayetteville in North Carolina all appear to show piles of bricks unattended in the middle of protests. The footage has led to suggestions the slabs were either planted by police or by extremists to overshadow peaceful protests following the death of George Floyd, a black man who pleaded for air as an officer

“Planted by cops”? Seriously? Do targets usually plant weapons for their adversaries to use against them? The Fake Media really doesn’t do logic, does it...

It's right there in the patrolman's manual, page 53, paragraph 6: "If you expect a riot, looting, vandalism, and violence against the police, it is a good idea to place bricks at the scene for the rioters to use."

I would suggest checking out any and all cameras at the locations where the bricks were stacked...you should be able to find out 'some' of the depositors, find out who they were, arrest them, and put the screws to them until they fess up who paid them to do it..Then go after them, and up the line till you get to the top....

Planted by cops! Oh sure. Because the cops want bricks that don’t go thru windows, thrown at them. This just shows how the media has taken sides. Shows how utterly asinine they are.

Bingo #8! Shouldn't be hard to find out who ordered a Pallet of bricks, paid for them and had them delivered to a specific place! There has to be a work order! Duh! Especially if they ordered them to be delivered to multiple places! Put your Detective hat on and get to work!

I guess some people will only wake up when our flyover country suburbs and rural areas are targeted. We do realize that has also been the stated plan of Antifa, right? Check out the photo of a brick pallet which appeared overnight in a nice Frisco, Texas neighborhood.

Yup, the cops supplied the rioters with pallets of bricks so that the rioters could throw the bricks at the cop’s heads. To a leftist and liberal Democrat that would make sense!

I noticed a lot of people with backpacks. Aren’t there boundaries in place for peaceful protests? Why are backpacks allowed and items that can be used as weapons? I was very disappointed to see Fox News televising the brother of deceased whipping the agitators into a frenzy right before the press secretary spoke. He was screaming about peace and justice. What is this left fist for peace and right fist for justice? Is that some kind of code?

Remember, the Dems ALWAYS accuse the other side of doing what they are ALREADY DOING. This is being done by the antifa thugs and their handlers/paymasters. No question about it. This ought to show up on some security cameras. Too bad the FBI can't be bothered to investigate this sort of thing....too busy trying to cover up their coup attempt.

In this day an age there are security cams every-frigging-where. I mean some body delivered a pile of bricks outside a courthouse where there have to be a score of cameras at least. Shouldn't take an Einstein to review the security tape and discern who dropped off the potential missiles. Or am I giving them too much credit here.

#5, if you have video of rioters picking up the bricks, then you have video of the bricks being delivered. The truck and a forklift belong to someone, and I’m betting it’s pretty easy to find out who paid them to deliver the bricks.

First of all, I prob know less than you do. But I just got to thinkun, about all these piles of bricks found at places of demonstrations and/or riots. Does it not strike you as kind of strange that the media is not covering this "investigation" of who is responsible for planting these bricks? Not even a "If you have any info regarding these bricks pls call us." Nothing at all. This suggests to me that the subject of who is planting these bricks is what is called in the media biz "off the record". Meaning that the media can not publisize this story. Why not? As one poster put it, even a first year detective would have no problem solving this case. I can only assume several things: First, that it is already known who is behind this. So, why doesnt the media let us know who is responsible for kindly supplying the bricks? Here is my theory: I have not been involved in the investigation. So I have no proof to offer. But here is what I think: Once it is known who is responsible for planting the bricks, it is easy to investigate Who are these people associated with? What organizations do they belong to? What websites do they and thier associates belong to? What do they post on social media? All these is pretty routine detective work. So it is pretty easy to follow the leads back to find out who else is (or who at least is a prime suspect) in being involved in this. You don't want to know who else is associated with these people. Niether does the govt. This is why everything is so hush hush about such a simple mystery. I do not know who exactly is involved in the brick capers. One thing we do know, is that the piles of bricks are being found all across the country, from NY to LA. So this is being orchestrated by a very large national organization. This is obvious. I suspect that the trail leads back to many prominent political and legal people. This is why the truth can't be told. We would be horrified if we knew the extent of it all. We are in deep kimshie, let's put it that way...

Regarding all these demonstrations, and violence, I have a theory, of sorts. The people are not REALLY demonstrating about racial inequality, nor police brutality. OK, these are some examples of what they perceive is wrong with the govt. But thier grievances go far beyond this. There has always been racial inequality. There has always been police brutality. So something must of changed. I think that I know what has changed. The protestors are fed up with how they are being treated by the govt and establishment in general. Yes, including things like civil rights, but this is only a small part of thier beefs. We have the stock market going up every day, thanks to the feds support. Yet, there is no relief for the poor lower and middle class. No relief checks, no govt work programs, nothing for these folks for help from the govt. So now they have no money, prob little food, the bills just keep coming in with no hope of being paid, and to make things even worse, the citizens have no job, no real hope of finding any job, and they have too much time on thier hands just sitting around at home. The perfect storm, you might say. You haven't seen nothing yet. Wait until this summer, when they can't even pay thier electric bill, never mind the rent. I think we are going to see large scale violence. Terrible riots and bloodshed. Mass destruction, etc. I am not all that politically savey to know who is responsible for all of this. Prob poor choices by the current US govt, and I read that George Soros may be involved as well. I look at things more from a social behavior view than a political view. There are always good things that happen when bad things happen. For example, many good things resulted for the Italians during Benito Musellinis rein. Here in the US, peace will once again rein. But, there will be militia on every street corner with automatic rifles. The citizens will live in a police state under martial law . But at least they will be safe. This is required for economic prosperity. Nor do I entertain any polyana fantasies that things can and could get better. Things can not get better. They will only get worse. And there is nothing we can do about it. Except to try and find your own little peace and quiet somewhere. And, I never thot that Pres Trump had a prayer being re-elected. But now I have changed my mind. I think he will remain in office, by whatever means it takes. I don't really care. I am apolitical. Politics are for existentials, who never have enough. They see the world in terms of Win-Lose, and not just about elections. It's going to be a super hot summer in the US, I think. Make sure that you get out there and get your fair share of abuse, as Mick Jagger used to sing.

Suspect number one is globalist billionaire George Soros and his Open Society Foundation. It starts there. Is Soros guilty? That’s way above my pay grade. That’s why we need a global investigation.

A widely read study claiming the use of the antimalarial hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus leads to an increased risk of death has been retracted, the study’s publisher said Thursday.
