TO THE EDITOR:
Regarding "Showrooms vandalized during protests; dealer says 'it was really horrible' " (autonews.com, June 1): Businesses are going to protect themselves, like Mike Sullivan, owner of LAcarGuy dealerships, who is actively looking for armed guards.
These are not protesters; they are gangs and thieves looking for an opportunity to commit crimes and get away with it under the cover of legitimate response to what happened in Minneapolis. Judging from the spontaneous national appearance of all these incidents, one has to wonder if some people were just waiting for an excuse.
