These protests seeking freedom of expression and going against racism have also unleashed vandalism with other groups of people who have taken advantage of these events to rob and loot some shops and sideboards on the streets.
Theft from the Apple Store
Apple stores have been one of the most targeted targets by opportunists who use protests as the perfect setting to commit crimes and stealing products from shelves and counters . This is demonstrated by Zane Sparling of The Portland Tribune on his twitter.

The raids on Apple stores have caused the properties to be damaged. The large windows surrounding the stores have been smashed, the interiors are painted and ruined. Thieves go in and out stealing Apple products unaware that even many of these they are totally useless because they have additional security that leaves them disabled.
