(NewsReady.com) – For more than a week, violent rioters have waged attacks of businesses and police officers with bricks. Rumors are swirling that those weapons were actually left at the site of riots on purpose. Law enforcement officers are now looking into whether or not that’s true.
Department of Justice (DOJ) officials, who remained anonymous, told Fox News the riots look like they’re “very organized.” Law enforcement also sees signs the rioters are “professional” agitators belonging to extremist organizations like Antifa. On June 3, NYC Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said criminals are placing bricks around the city.

Officials in other parts of the country are pushing back on these rumors. In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, rumors about bricks being placed were proven false. Similar rumors in Atlanta aren’t true according to local police.
It seems as if the methods are varying from city to city. The DOJ, however, is going to thoroughly investigate. Sources say they’re building cases for charges against members of Antifa. Maybe that group will be stopped once and for all.
