MVC&R are looking forward to the final night of the RNC, and they reflect on three successful nights. The Wisconsin DOJ finds Jacob Blake had a weapon on the floorboard of his car, and The New York Times actually believes it’s possible the 17-year-old in Kenosha, killed people in self-defense. Joe Biden speaks out against the violence, right after pouring gasoline all over the flames. Rioting and looting in Minneapolis, all because a murder suspect killed himself. The Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers agree to sit out the rest of the season, and TNT’s Kenny Smith walks off the set in support of players. The mayor of Portland insists reports of violence are “lies”, and calls on the community to end the violence. Plus, CNN describes the chaos in Kenosha as, “Fiery, but mostly peaceful.”
