The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history, Axios has learned.

Why it matters: The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King.




Glad they were mostly peaceful. Would bankrupt the country otherwise!

Until the economy makes a massive turn to get these people destroying things some upwards mobility, it will continue to be the norm.

Its why I'm leaving the city to live in a rural area. I kind of feel like America is entering a dark chapter and a new president won't fix the problem.
:rofl:

While I agree with both of you, breaking into small businesses and destroying them/looting isn't really an anecdote for police authoritarian abuse.
There is no reasonable excuse for the burning people out of their livelihoods and destroying peoples jobs.
They must do it because orange man is bad.

This deciding it’s ok for people to commit crimes because cops doing shit just boggles my mind. Let’s take one criminal act and use it to validate another.
not to mention 30+ people have been killed in the riots :oopsie:
