From Fox News:
“It’s honestly truly disheartening,” Genesis Villella told “Fox & Friends.”
Villella said that, having lost her police officer mom, she wants Americans to remember that police officers have families as well.
“They have children and loved ones that need them to come home unharmed. I just want everyone to know those police officers are human too. They have fears, they have love, and they bleed just like the rest of us,” Villella said.
“People like my mom, who was the most amazing person in my life, deserve to not be executed the way that she was because just because of her uniform.”
Familia, a 12-year veteran of the force, had been stationed in the mobile command post, which is used during major events and in high-crime areas.
“Tunnel to Towers” founder Frank Siller, who accompanied Villella in the interview, said that so far this year 116 police officers have died in the line of duty by either murder or other methods. Siller said that the foundation will make sure to offer support to those who are left behind due to their relatives in law enforcement being killed.
“They have given us the gift of a home,” Villella said.
Villella said that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation kept their promise of never forgetting the sacrifice her mother made.

CHAOS NYC: Rioters Loot Manhattan Stores, De Blasio Describes Situation as ‘Limited Protest Activity’
Rioters smashed windows and looted stores in Manhattan late Sunday night after assembling for citywide protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis; a situation Mayor Bill de Blasio described as “limited protest activity.”
“Fox News crews on the scene in SoHo reported hundreds of people stealing from luxury stores – including Chanel and Dior – for hours on Sunday night going into the early hours of Monday morning. The looters were seen piling shoplifted merchandise into vehicles while others rode off with the merchandise in black garbage bags balanced on CitiBikes,” reports Fox news.

But when it got dark, things changed and it changed rapidly,” Shea said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “We anticipated it, but you saw large groups of people had no inclination to all this protest once it got dark, particularly in the area of SoHo between Canal and West Broadway. We had a number of stores broken into.”
