To the Editor:
Your correspondent in today’s Tribune (“Capitol Violence is Unacceptable,” Jan. 13, page A4) is disturbed by violence at the U.S. Capitol. So should we all be. However, she makes too light of the tremendous damage, fear and injuries inflicted by the rioters in Portland, Seattle, New York and other cities.
Many of these people were not colored but whites intent on having a good night’s looting under the banner of someone else’s cause. The liberal city councils and supervisors prevented the police from dealing adequately with this outrage.
These businesses were already suffering from the effects of Covid-19, but the authorities who should have been supporting their taxpayers instead voted to let the rioters go at it. Let’s not make the same mistake here.
