(Video credit : Dan Ladue) A New York City woman's impassioned plea to a group of looters to stop what they were doing is resonating with people across the country.
Desiree Barnes said she approached the group Saturday night in the East Village after they began looting the stores below her apartment.
That is when a man on the street noticed her message and started filming.

This is about anarchy, these communist couldn’t wait for another situation to happened so they can over throw our neighborhoods and cause division , and chaos just like the devils that they are!!! They don’t care about black lives, they are just using those words to get there own agenda across.

Anyone looting will want to justify it and some people (mostly white and I say this as a white person) will want to use them to argue that the Black Lives Matter movement is always misused. I live in a suburban, riot-free area and I know that makes me feel safe and I think a lot of people in my area defending the riots and looting don't really get to give enough sympathy to any black people who are negatively affected by the riots.

Thank you!! BLM protesters just scream, disrupt, and bring discord to communities. For what?? To feel good about themselves?? Be the change!! I don’t see any of them volunteering with me to tutor African Americans , creating outreach programs, helping homelessness, assisting single mothers improve their employment skills, bringing health programs, etc. Anyone can scream, agitate, and create outrage. But only those really committed to the cause put the time and effort to be the change. Talk is cheap, service and helping to empower others is the true force

And yet, it is the rich who smash up windows, and the poor looters are hot on their heels for the TVs and Nikes. Truth is, poverty and social inequality can only be CURED by making everybody poor and low class. Look at Cuba and Venezuela.

At the end of the day we want police reform which will benefit everyone of all races I'm not a Marxist or communist I don't loot or riot I don't want to destroy western civilization or nuclear family I don't share the beliefs of the founders our protest in pa are peaceful and we don't ask for charity but people are welcome to give not all BLM are bad and I know I may have been a little racist at first but Ive grown from that ever since canon hinnant the only thing I wanted was to end police brutality against all races because black lives matter but all lives matter .

Those rioters and looters who are destroying people’s neighborhoods are not destroying their own neighborhoods. They go back home get paid for the evil they have done to other and sleep comfortably in their beds.

Personal advice when rioting/clashing in a demonstration. Don't destroy personally owned shops and small businesses, deal with large markets and corporate buildings, because they can repair easily, while families get their lives destroyed over it. And try to avoid any issues with all civilians and don't get into conflicts with them. If so, just back off and stop completely if you have to. And fight like your enemy, as well.

Nothing to do with it at all. I can't believe 18 people liked your post. No facts at all. She was angry because people are destroying their neighborhood. The people / corporations responsible suffer minor or no damage. People don't or can't see this. I pity you and the 18 others
