У протестующих тоже есть вооруженные формирования

Teeter, in an interview with CNN, said he identifies as an anarchist. His mission in Minneapolis, he said, was to protect protesters from police abuse and white supremacists, whom he deplores.
"If people are going to initiate deadly force against us, we need to be willing and able to initiate deadly force in return," Teeter, 22, said.
Gun-toting Boogaloo members have appeared at George Floyd protests in Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Dallas, Atlanta and elsewhere, according to The Washington Post.
Known for sporting Hawaiian shirts and arriving to public protests heavily armed, the decentralized Boogaloo movement -- sometimes referred to as the "Boogaloo Bois" -- is often associated with the far-right.

И, что самое интересное, протесты ЧЕРНЫХ от белых супремасистов и полиции защищают не вооруженные леваки (хотя и они тоже), но ультра-правые.

"Где увеличение случаев коронавируса?"

Меня саркастически спрашивали, ну вот они. Как раз неделька с небольшим прошла после Labor day weekend. Надеюсь, смертность будет не такая большая, поскольку госпиталя больше не перегружены и теперь болеет в основном молодежь, а молодые умирают не в таких пропорциях (но умирают тем не менее, поскольку у многих ожирение).

Coronavirus cases continued to spread in parts of the American south and west in the past week as experts warn that packed protests could exacerbate the pandemic.
The early parts of the American coronavirus outbreak struck hardest in the dense metropolitan areas on the coasts, such as New York, New Jersey, Boston, and California. But the last few weeks have seen wider spread in inland states, including Arkansas, Texas and Arizona.
In Arkansas on Tuesday, Gov. Asa Hutchinson said there were 375 new positive coronavirus tests, the highest single-day number of new community cases. There are currently more people hospitalized with Covid-19 there than at any prior point.
"We continue to trend upward in the number of cases," Hutchinson said.
Arizona added 1,127 new positive Covid-19 cases on Tuesday, the state's highest single-day total in the pandemic. Texas, too, has seen over 1,000 new positive coronairus cases in six out of the last seven days.
