    Riots in the city. Where is mayor erkel?

    Thugs are restless in the city. Its just a matter of time before they move on the galleria. Just heard they are taking measures to secure the mall area.

    Erie County declares State of Emergency following protest in City of Buffalo; 10:30 p.m. curfew in effect. Protests were held across the country following the death of George Floyd who died in police custody in Minneapolis earlier this week. Saturday afternoon, a mostly peaceful protest was held in the City of Buffalo, although local officials were concerned about it turning violent.

    why would police officers from out of the area volunteer to protect the city.? not to get paid. I think just to see some action. Buffalo has a PD.
    Mayor face mask is speaking now he will enforce the law.
    right now a van is burning and no fire dept people watching it no cops or fire dept . only can shake my head.:cow

    Just heard from a packer town employees working to secure the galleria mall. res town employees on OT to secure the mall. oh boy

    so now watching ch 2 cops standing around behind the cement balls doing nothing as thugs wreck city hall . city hall is burning now. small fire inside.
    thug threw a fire bomb right into city hall window. cops still standing around.

    van still burning fire dept finally showed up now after almost an hour of burning . love these news reports just so dumb on some of their comments.

    Just FYI -

    "as thugs wreck city hall . city hall is burning now. small fire inside.

    City Hall did not burn or suffer "fire damage" - someone threw a cardboard box into a broken window - it all but self extinguished by the time BFD got inside. Estimates so far entering the building caused more damage than the protester did.

    yes looked worse than it did. just adding a little drama. I did see the thug do it then put up his arms yes. needs to play for the bills. how did u like the van burning and how long it took them to put it out.

    If it needs to be done you gotta do it. Only time I make a point is when OT is done to pad pensions. Stuff like that. Or if people are sitting around bs'ing on a Friday instead of working knowing they can come in Saturday to finish up on overtime.

    When I heard they were blocking the mall or worried about Target I wondered about Union/Walden. Large area for rioters to collect.

    Were the dump trucks literally blocking the entrance doors of the mall or the parking lot entrances?

    What would be the point of having the dump trucks at the parking lot entrances when looters could just walk around them?
