KC Police Discovers pallets of rocks and bricks near the sites of the rioting and the police believe they were part of a pre-planned riot.
There does not seem to be any construction going on where the bricks have been found.
The KC Police tweeted:
“We have learned of & discovered stashes of bricks and rocks in & around the Plaza and Westport to be used during a riot.”
The riots in Kansas City, like in other major cities across the country saw violence perpetrated in the name of George Floyd who had his neck damaged as a police officer had his knee against it during an arrest.
The officer has been charged with third-degree murder.
We have learned of & discovered stashes of bricks and rocks in & around the Plaza and Westport to be used during a riot. If you see anything like this, you can text 911 and let us know so we can remove them. This keeps everyone safe and allows your voice to continue to be heard.

A spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department said he had not identified the source for the bricks and rocks found near the protest sites, but they were likely intended for “nefarious use.”
“I don’t know who would have put them there. I don’t think they’re doing any type of construction or anything like that. I sense that they’re probably there for nefarious use,” Capt. David Jackson told reporters on Sunday.
Kansas City police deemed protests near the Plaza unruly on Sunday night after demonstrators began throwing debris at officers.
Fires were also set during the riot. A reporter for KSHB, a Kansas City TV station, said her car was set on fire near the protests.
