Following the shooting of Jacob Blake, protestors, rioters, and counter-protestors arrived in Kenosha to voice their concerns. Daylight peaceful protests turned to riots, arson, and police clashes at night. Rioters destroyed city property valued at $2 million, including garbage trucks, street lights, and traffic signals. Estimates of damage to private property are as much as $50 million. Rioters destroyed 40 buildings, including the 100-year old Danish Brotherhood Lodge, and damaged 100 more. By August 28, 2020, the state had deployed nearly 1,000 National Guard troops and more than 200 federal agents.
