By Daily Caller. The Kansas City police department said Sunday that officers found bricks and rocks staged near protest sites around the city, stoking concerns that individuals or groups had pre-planned looting and destruction that hit the city over the weekend.
“We have learned of & discovered stashes of bricks and rocks in & around the Plaza and Westport to be used during a riot,” the department said in a tweet on Sunday.
As in most major cities across the U.S., protesters gathered in Kansas City over the weekend over the police-involved death of George Floyd. The 46-year-old black man died last Monday after a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for nearly 10 minutes during an arrest involving a non-violent incident.
We have learned of & discovered stashes of bricks and rocks in & around the Plaza and Westport to be used during a riot. If you see anything like this, you can text 911 and let us know so we can remove them. This keeps everyone safe and allows your voice to continue to be heard.

“This is not about George Floyd anymore. Gosh, I wish it was. We had a sincere moment of national unity where everyone agreed, even our police officers, that this was abhorrent. . .
Bongino said he’s been told “known Antifa leadership is there” organizing riots. (Read more from “Ex-Secret Service Agent: Riots Are ‘Sophisticated Insurrection’ by Antifa” HERE)
