Police in Kenosha, Wisconsin appear to shoot a man seven times in the back at point blank range after he ignores commands. We’re no other non-lethal methods considered, @KenoshaPolice?
Unfortunately, the viral video of the incident caused some rioters to turn attention to one car dealership in the area and eventually set at least one of its cars on fire consequently causing the other vehicles to get torched as well.
As of the time of writing this report, owners of the car dealership claim that over 100 used cars were completely destroyed beyond repair in the inferno. Some of these cars include expensive luxury models like the BMW 5-Series, Mercedes S-Class sedans and Range Rover SUVs. Quite an unfortunate situation, isn’t it?
