(Liberty Bell) – Anti-police sentiment is spreading far and wide, and, in just a few short weeks, we’ve watched our nation seemingly turn into some sort of post-police dystopia.
Police officers are being targeted like never before and are calling in sick en masse. And who can blame them? Democrats and the radical protest movements they support have put a giant target on the back of every man and woman in law enforcement.
That’s not all…
Now, it appears that even those who seek help from law enforcement will find themselves targeted, as is the case with a woman who owns a small cupcake business in Cleveland that was destroyed and looted by rioters last month.
Now, she’s being threatened further harm and destruction for cooperating with the police, BizPac Review reports.
Kelly Kandah, the owner of Colossal Cupcakes, a family business, told “Fox & Friends” in an interview on Monday that the threats she is now facing include being told that if she rebuilds her destroyed business, “it’s going to get hit again.”
Kandah explained that she’s been getting complaints that it’s “unfair” to cooperate with police investigators and that she should not be working with the FBI as it is “against the cause, which I’m actually absolutely for the cause, but it’s upsetting people that I would involve the police of something such as property.”
One might think it’s rather unfair to completely destroy a small business in Cleveland over an incident of police brutality in Minneapolis, but welcome to 2020.
Kandah also told Fox & Friends that she and four of her employees were forced to lock themselves in a bathroom on May 30 as rioters looted her business.
She thanked the police who intervened on that day and saved her life.
Earlier this month, BPR notes, she told the morning show that she’s owned the shop for almost ten years.
“My family built it up, [I] listened to it get absolutely destroyed,” she explained during an appearance on June 2. “That whole time we were locked in there … I just listened to everything getting shattered and crushed.”
On Monday, she explained that she and her employees “had to lock ourselves in the bathroom while my store was completely destroyed and ransacked” with the rioters just on the other side of the door.
Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked “And you didn’t know if they were trying to trick you and saying, ‘We’re police,’ that you would come out, right?”
Kandah replied that this was the case, explaining that rioters were “pounding on the door” after they’d broken into the store, “so I was actually skeptical that it was Cleveland police or not, but it was.”
What a terrifying ordeal! Can you imagine what would have happened to her had the police not been there? Is this really what liberals want, innocent business owners and employees to be dragged out of their destroyed establishments?
About a week after the incident, Kandah went on to explain, “I was showing some of the damage and I was leaving, a friend and myself, and someone walking by approached us and said, ‘When the store rebuilds, when you rebuild this, I’m going to come back and destroy it again and you.’ He kept walking and was gone.”
When Earhardt asked Kandah if she was scared to reopen, she replied, “Yes.”
“What do you say to the critics that say because you called the police because you are thanking them now for saving your life that you are racist and you don’t support black lives?” Earhardt asked.
“It’s just really sad,” Kandah replied. “Unfortunately my store is not open right now and I’m so involved with the community and I’m so involved with our inner-city schools and I’m so for the cause that I do a lot of community service. Right now, I can’t. I don’t have anything being brought in to be able to donate as much as I usually do.”
