New viral video and photos show how nearly 100 expensive used cars were burnt down in a U.S dealership by new protesters of #BlackLivesMatter

Just when everyone was already letting go of the initial #BlackLivesMatter campaign, another viral video recently surfaced online showing a “white” cop shooting a “black” civilian about 7 times in the back right in front the man’s children.

This latest incident has sparked a new wave of outrage and protests by #BlackLivesMatter protesters in certain parts of the United States.

New reports gave it that some of the new protesters set ablaze a multi-brand car dealership in the Kenosha part of Wisconsin, in the U.S leading to the razing of about 100 used cars overnight on Monday 24th August 2020.

According to reports circulating the online space, the Wisconsin Police department confirmed that some of its officers were responding to a certain “domestic incident” case on Sunday, August 23rd, 2020. So, it was during the process of handling the case that the shooting of the man caught on camera happened.

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?
