Big city stores preparing for MASS RIOTS by boarding up their windows

Franz Walker — Natural News April 2, 2020

As cities all over America have placed stay-at-home orders in response to the coronavirus, high-end retailers are worrying about potential civil unrest. Several shops, including those in one of Hollywood’s most famous shopping districts, are taking measures to protect themselves against possible looters.

Shops on or around Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive seem to be preparing for the worse possible scenario during this current outbreak. Photographs have surfaced online of several of these stores having their doors and storefront windows boarded up with giant slabs of plywood. This is in addition to said stores clearing out their shelves of expensive merchandise.

When interviewed by TMZ, construction workers boarding up the Pottery Barn off Beverly Drive and Dayton Way, right near Rodeo, stated that what they were doing was only a temporary measure to protect that specific branch from bad actors. However, other photographs have now come in showing other stores in other major cities also doing the same.

The defensive measures by retailers come after police departments have been hit hard by the ongoing pandemic. In some cities, hundreds of police officers have tested positive for the disease, while thousands have called in sick or are in isolation.

High-end stores anticipating looting and civic unrest all over

Rodeo Drive isn’t the only high-end shopping district that’s seeing it stores board up due to fears of possible looting and civil unrest. Numerous photographs have popped up over Twitter, showing shopping districts in cities around the country such as Chicago, San Francisco and more boarding up their windows.

Closures of high-end retailers such as Dolce & Gabbana and Hermes at Chicago’s Magnificent Mile have prompted Luigi Zingales, professor of finance at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, to compare the situation to the 2019-20 Chilean protests where rioters looted shops and even churches in the capital of Santiago and other cities

Meanwhile, stores boarding up in San Francisco have caused others to compare the situation to hurricane preparations — something that normally doesn’t have to be done in California, which rarely, if ever, experiences direct landfall from storms.

Other cities where shops have been photographed boarding up include Kansas City and New York City. The latter is currently facing shortages of police officers due to the coronavirus.

A shortage of police officers is a worry in the U.S.

While open civic unrest and rioting have yet to happen in the U.S., retailers aren’t taking any chances. One of the reasons for this is that police departments themselves are being walloped by the coronavirus.

A survey of over 40 law enforcement agencies done by the Associated Press shows that over 690 officers nationwide have been quarantined because of the virus. The New York City Police Department (NYPD) has been the hardest hit of all the departments surveyed. When the survey was conducted, 512 NYPD police officers had tested as positive for the virus. City officials, however, now expect the number to have ballooned to over 900 NYPD officers by March 30. (Related: Police officers are starting to die from coronavirus in US cities… what will happen if law enforcement can’t function?)

One of the officers who tested positive has since died over the weekend, bringing the total of NYPD officers who’ve succumbed to it to three. Meanwhile, an even larger number of officers are in out sick or in isolation, with NYPD Police Commissioner Dermot Shea confirming that 5,000 officers were out sick as of Sunday.

With police being hit as hard as they are, it’s no wonder that business owners are looking to other means to protect their stores. Should any mass riots occur, police departments may be too depleted to handle them. As such, more businesses are likely to follow suit and board up their storefronts to protect themselves.

  1. My wife holds a senior position in a Supermarket chain.
    People think they are in competition, they are not, they all work together.
    All supermarkets are rothschild run, as he loans the money for their set up.
    These cartels work in unision.
    Supermarkets use 50 toxic substances in their food, everything from Monosodium Glutemate to Aspartame with its 92 registered side effects, Moshe Solomons said on
    radio, these poisons are for the Goyim, not for us as we eat Kosher, these are reasons behind the success of farmers markets, you buy fresh and locally grown produce.
    Its only jewish supermarket chains allowed to still function, farmers markets had to close.
    My wife saw a circular sent to all supermarkets saying, prepare for riots and have window shielding ready.
    Oswald Mosely predicted this in the 1950s, he had spies right through the jewish system, and before him Adolf Hitler said the same, how i wish we had listened.
    My wife said mass spying campaigns have gone on for years and soon only certain people will be allowed food.
    Fema camps here we come, dont say you were not told

  2. “A shortage of police officers is a worry in the U.S.”

    A worry? Really?
    Why don’t you ask me what I think of these God damn less than useless fucking piles of uniformed and uninformed shitheads with their guns all pointed in the wrong direction?

    Go ahead, ask me.

    “The defensive measures by retailers come after police departments have been hit hard by the ongoing pandemic. In some cities, hundreds of police officers have tested positive for the disease, while thousands have called in sick or are in isolation.”

    I wish these useless order following robots with badges get hit by something REALLY HARD…like a volley of machine gun bullets from super angry citizens…
    Yes, I’m somewhat of a dreamer.

    “A survey of over 40 law enforcement agencies done by the Associated Press shows that over 690 officers nationwide have been quarantined because of the virus.”

    Wow…”690 officers nationwide have been quarantined because of the virus.”

    Ahhhh…Let’s send all our thoughts and prayers to these nice law enforcement officers…who serve and protect the most vicious psychopaths you can imagine. It’s
    nice to see Natural News getting its info from a trusted news source: Associated Press…owned by the Rothshits of the shitty citi of London.

    “One of the officers who tested positive has since died over the weekend, bringing the total of NYPD officers who’ve succumbed to it to three.”

    This is a national emergency: 3 *allegedly* dead victims caused by the allegedly evil corona virus… Thoughts and prayers once again!

    “Should any mass riots occur, police departments may be too depleted to handle them. As such, more businesses are likely to follow suit and board up their storefronts to protect themselves.”

    Yes, police departments may be too depleted to handle them because they’ll be busy going after criminals who don’t obey the law that says you have to stay at least 6 feet away from the people you live with! Tell me once again how we need these vermin to protect us!

  3. If I was a retailer I’d be asking myself a few questions. Will what I’m selling be a target for looters? Will they take the swag and just leave or will they torch the place anyway? Will my insurance stump up the costs? Should I just walk away now?

  4. There is no reason to shut down everything when a narrow clearly-defined and about 2% of the population is at a 1% to 8% risk of dying from a Covid 19 “related” infection. We all know who the people at a higher risk of dying are, and many of them are dying of other pre-existing serious health complications or other complications after they get the virus like pneumonia, but the deaths are being attributed to this virus. All are relatively easily protected without having to isolate the 98% who are not in that risk sector. Anyone, who says otherwise does not have the facts and is likely not being honest.
    Because the lock downs are not necessary to curtail the spread of this flu in order to actually save the endangered few, it must be the case that the cartel and their globalist advisors have deemed it necessary that the people particularly of the West be isolated from forming crowds and be under strict the control of their governments.

    Most reputable financial experts on the Internet have been telling us for ages, that due to the astronomical debt load the economy is dying. Because of the weight of debt and we are heading for a depression. The highly-inflated market has just crashed and the banks are being kept running only by virtue of infinity QE, like a trillion a day being pumped into them to prevent a liquidity freeze. That the deaths of a few people more this year are being characterized as dying from Covid-19-realted illnesses is a little consequence to the money masters. Their purpose for this virus is to make the economy even sicker and to take the blame for the chronic economic diseases which they created, namely: creating money out of nothing, lending it at interest to our governments and everyone else, massive insider trading, inflated stock, inflated currencies, debt-rigging, and deficit financing. These are the serious economic co-morbidity diseases responsible for the coming depression, and the cartel would like as much as possible to blame what is to happen on the COVID virus and the totally unnecessary economic shutdowns. The virus together with the government-and-media-orchestrated, hypertensive and disproportionate reactions is essentially a cover and a people-control measure for their past 120 years of avarice, dishonesty and plundering. The COVID virus can be seen as a deliberate injection of a toxin into the arteries of a gullible public to quicken the economic death of their nations, while they roll out and impose on them one globalist sustainability and financial measure after another.

    They do not intend to restart the economy to the same extent as before. To attain both their totalitarian sustainability objectives they intend reduce production and consumption. To attain universal financial hegemony they intend to destroy nations and absorb all national currencies. To attaint radical population reduction they intend to make economic life generally much more difficult for the masses to have or to want children, and other measures to curtail what they deem as surplus populations. In the immediate interim, the cash bring created and to be dolled out by our governments for all the unemployment and business losses to ensue, will ensure more dependency and control of the people.

    The smoking gun showing that it is the banking cartel responsible for this particular economic CLOVID killer virus, are the major shutdowns by all the major powers in the world, all cooperating in the charade – mainly China, Russia, the UK, Israel and the US. Despite a bitter trade war and crippling sanctions, aggressive military exercises, these nations are all working together, hyping up the pandemic to extremes when they all know the risk sector of their populations can be separately and easily protected without any significant economic shutdowns. All these nations are subject to the central banking cartel, which is their omnipotent creditor and the only authority which could possible orchestrate such a performance with such cooperation between hostile nations, and obedience from the various local governments.

  6. @Fred B,

    That was, once again, a very well written general overview of the situation.

    An Oscar should be handed out to Vladimir Putin.
