POLICE: Majority of Arrested Rioters in Kenosha Came From 44 Different Cities

'The destruction in places is total, the locals dazed, shocked and trying to be brave...'

The majority of violent protesters arrested in Kenosha, Wisc., over the weekend were from out of town, police said.

The Kenosha Police Department said in a statement on Sunday that out of the 175 rioters arrested during the civil unrest that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake, 102 had listed addresses outside of Kenosha.

Their addresses were from 44 different cities, according to police.

Sixty-nine people were arrested for curfew violations, and 34 more were arrested on other charges that ranged from “carrying concealed weapons, burglary, and possession of controlled substances.”

The protests in Kenosha began after a viral video surfaced of Blake being shot in the back while he resisted arrest and tried to grab a knife in his car.

His three children were in the car at the time of the shooting, police said.

Blake had a warrant out for his arrest because he broke into his ex-partner’s home, sexually assaulted her and stole her vehicle on May 3, according to a criminal complaint.

President Donald Trump visited Kenosha on Tuesday, telling reporters prior to his visit that it could “increase enthusiasm and it could increase love and respect for our country.”

He planned to visit the businesses that were destroyed, according to a press release of his schedule.

The riots were so destructive that Kenosha, which is home to about 100,000 people, looks almost unrecognizable, according to reporters.

Kenosha’s residents largely hold out-of-towners responsible for the destruction, according to the Sunday Times’s Josh Glancy.
