Charlotte, North Carolina descended into chaos for the third night in a row as National Guard troops were ordered to patrol the streets.
On Wednesday night, Governor McCrory declared a State of Emergency and ordered the National Guard to deploy into Charlotte. The move came after hundreds of violent radicals looted business, shut down highways, and targeted citizens with brutal attacks throughout the city.
Last night, rioters took to the streets again and despite the National Guard’s presence in town formed a human chain across Interstate 277, yet again shutting down a major North Carolina highway.

Police in riot gear used pepper spray on the rioters and then used their shields to push them off the road. Two officers were hospitalized after the rioters sprayed an unknown chemical agent into the line of police.
Despite promising more arrests, and instituting a midnight curfew, the liberal mayor and police chief of Charlotte allowed the rioters to essentially close down the city, ignoring their own curfew and yet again allowing the hard working people of Charlotte to be terrorized by the mob.
Local hotels were placed on lockdown throughout the night, with armed National Guard guarding the entrances. Local businesses were forced to shut down for the third night in a row, and many area businesses have told their employees to stay home for the week.
