Anybody stopping road traffic with weapons will get easily shot by people in cars. One should not wonder why.

I hope this thread doesn’t turn into a debate of the events of last Saturday. I heard the gun shots from my home while walking my dog. It’s painful to think of the loss of a life, no matter how it happened. We’ve answered the OP’s question. (Yes, i can skip the thread but would like to not put someone on trial after they’ve been murdered or the other when none of us were there).

What about downtown living? It used to be hip and hype. And look at all the high rise residential buildings. People still want to live in there?

Downtown anywhere USA are facing similar circumstances. I don't think it will last forever though (atleast I hope). Barring a vaccine for the Pandemic and also changes in the political atmosphere we will slowly see a restoration in the urbanization trend. If neither of those happen however this nation may end up seeing flight into lower density areas however and offices / condo's will suffer from loss of demand causing them to rot out of future plans. I'd hate to be a commercial real-estate investor right now.

Have you seen the protesters? I think some significant number of them may live downtown, or just across I35 in hipster paradise east Austin.

Living in downtown Austin is very expensive. I don't think they want to see the economy tanked, do they? Otherwise, how could they afford the mortgage or rent? Peaceful protest is one thing. But right now, along with pandemic, who is going to 6th St? Or enjoying the vibrant downtown living as advertised?

Come to think of it, I suspect a lot of the protesters might also be folks who would be in those 6th street bars, if they weren’t all closed.

Maybe, I have been around Downtown Austin a few times recently at night and it is mostly dead save for the protests.

All these kids who love the 80's so much about to find out what the 80's were really like in the inner city if all this keeps up.
