7. It's happening, but not nearly as much as we would prefer.

A lot of the property damage is coming from BLM protestors.

But there definitely is a provocateur component: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/08/19/magazine/boogaloo.html

The looting, at least here in Seattle, was very well organized and not concerned with BLM at all. It was an opportunity to loot. The Bellevue Mall was ransacked, and looters would be met on side streets by vans to haul away the merchandise. The suspicion is that it was "gangs", but who knows.

My co-worker watched the meet-ups happen in front of his house.
