Violence erupted in Kenosha, Wisconsin after Jacob Blake was shot in the back by police. The mayhem followed a familiar pattern, with daytime protests devolving into night-time looting and arson. But rage-fueled anarchy has spread across the country.

One such example in December 2020, took place in Olympia where one person was shot, four police officers were hurt and multiple arrests were made as the riot turned violent. Rioters from two opposing political groups met heavily armed with rifles, handguns, and clubs.
