MPD made 68 arrests
56 officers injured – 2 hospitalized
6 firearms recovered

For people who haven't been to a demonstration before these are very unusual numbers below. The arrest numbers are way too low the police injuries are way too high and two pipe bombs and five people are dead.
Crazy things can happen when your actions are based on unchecked propaganda and lies. Whether you're on the left or the right critical thinking and proper intelligence gathering is very important before you take direct action.

In NYC and other cities squatting buildings is going to be a possibility again because of the economic effects of Covid. Like it was in the past. Landlords will not be able to pay the taxes and the buildings will go over to the city and those buildings will be available to squat and the NYPD will not have the resources to get people out.
