Piles of Bricks Mysteriously Appear in Washington, D.C. Ahead of Protests
Remember over the summer when all of the riots were happening?
Do you also remember that there were piles of bricks that kept mysteriously appearing in convenient locations for Antifa and Black Lives Matter to cause damage with?
Videos of rioters stumbling on these piles prompted several theories online about their origin, ranging from them being planted there by police so rioters could face tougher charges to outside agitators trying to stir up more trouble.
Kansas City police reported: 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.
Here is a video of finding bricks in Manhattan:

Well, it’s happening again. This time, of course, in Washington, D.C. just in time for the protests.

A number of construction companies were contacted about this and here is basically what they said.
The conclusion is that material is never just left out on the street, the truck comes in and workers unload it for multiple reasons first is insurance no one wants to be sued and second why buy it and leave it out to be stolen. Pavers come shrink wrapped on a pallet stacked. Never in bags like this. Also, you’ll need a permit to store materials on the street, and they would have to have some sort of barricade around them.
These bricks and other pallets of bricks in DC should be removed as they can be used as a deadly weapon if protests turn violent.
As we know bricks were used in the past riots by Antifa to riot and attack the police.
Organizers plan to rally on Tuesday evening at Freedom Plaza and again all day Wednesday on the Ellipse, including a 1 p.m. Wednesday march to the Capitol. Expected attendees include high-level Trump supporters like Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Republican strategist Roger Stone.
If you’re in D.C. or any other areas where there are some bricks just lying around, be careful.
