Davenport, Iowa

DAVENPORT, IOWA – A civil emergency was declared for Davenport, Iowa, early Monday morning after violence erupted in the streets and several people were shot.

Scott County Emergency Management advised all residents to shelter in place immediately. The agency declared a civil emergency at 12:23 AM Monday, June 1, 2020. Due to civil unrest in the Davenport area, the Davenport police department and city officials requested all residents stay in their homes and shelter in place until further notice.

Reportedly, two people were killed by gunshots and at least two others, including a police officer, were shot. The officer survived after being hospitalized.

NorthPark Mall in Davenport was the scene of moving protests and rioters.  The mall closed down on Sunday for the “safety of shoppers,” according to a social media post.

KWQC reported that “Davenport’s Mayor Matson said he will be speaking with Gov. Kim Reynolds this morning and is requesting assistance from the Iowa National Guard in coordinating a response.”

    “There is only one way to handle looters and arsonists during a riot and that is to shoot them on sight. I’ve let the word filter down: When the looting starts the shooting starts.”

    Unfortunately, I feel he was correct. Lets see, protest something, so we should steal from shops, because that will show them. Just another reason for scum to be scum.

    This is what we get from Democrat controlled big cities. The cops get orders to let it happen. Now they allow their cities to burn to the ground! Make no mistake they are following orders from the Dem bosses running their cities!

    “This is not community unrest or civil disobedience. This is terrorism and the organizers and instigators must be investigated and charged federally.”
