This is ridiculous. We saw the footage of the only city nearby that faced any looting, Walnut Creek.

We're talking about "dozens" not hundreds.

When a group that small size has our local police with their tails between their legs it's beyond disturbing.

They're supposed to protect our rights, but they're so scared of a bunch of teenagers, we must now have our rights REVOKED.

Could you be more pathetic? The tax rate is way too high for amateur hour cops.

Am I allowed to grab cigarettes? Like I’m not protesting/rioting but I might if I don’t get my freakin nicotine (that’s a joke don’t freak out) bottom line: Am I going to be arrested for going to the corner store?

Yah, it is tragic that George Floyd died because fe did not do what was requested by a police officer. Don't these people protesting, realize that what they are doing are making a bad situation worse. It is time to take a step back and let due process take it's course. There are meany other people hurting just like you that have lost there. jobs, businesses, and lives because of what you are doing. It is also time for our local agency's to step up and put a stop to this before this gets totally out of control.

I didn't know about curfew, I stay away from news due to the Coronavirus Deaths + Violent protests. Went to McDonald's for food, Closed, Jack in the box closed. I look on-line find out we have a freaking curfew. Concord hasn't had probs, why close down areas that have no probs.

Breaking CC Board of Supervisors unanimously vote to use big, blunt stick to swat small, annoying insects.

Guess I don't have to do much research before knowing how to vote for this position in the next election... anyone but the incumbent.
