Desiree Barnes said she approached the group Saturday night in the East Village after they began looting the stores below her apartment.
That is when a man on the street noticed her message and started filming.

If a book store was one of their loot targets (I know it would never be) they should grab a dictionary and look up the definitions of protest, looting and rioting.

I cant believe that ABC allowed this video to be posted. Maybe the bosses are not aware of it yet.

God oh God why could I an old white guy not ever find such a woman as this for a life partner? She is beautiful outside and inside with a vast amount of common sense.

These young, white, liberal rioters embarrass the hell out of me. They don't have the slightest idea of why they're out there, and they lack all common sense. The indoctrination by our schools and universities has set this country back decades. 🇺🇸 MAGA

A huge THANK YOU to this woman who is a HERO! This woman is a true inspiration to me and a lot of people who LOVE this country!

Praying that this crap stops soon and we can all move on in life with a positive attitude and energy! ❤️🇺🇸

The moral of the this.... consider how you vote in November... everybody whose committing such acts are young people who were Sanders' supporters....the Left wants American citizens to bite, devour and destroy one another. They say they hate capitalism but will stand in line to pay a thousand for latest iphone.... gleefully by their own free will. I am afraid of the left and liberal policy. They want the country destroyed. Here lies proof. The leaders will not tell people to stop and consider their ways. Hillary provoked people to be uncivil with her statement. After the election she said Trump is president and we have to accept her loss, then weeks later she spoke of a resistance...What!😲😮😔 Dr. King never stood for violent protest, vandalism and looting. This is not about Floyd's death it is something else this the excuse for mayhem in America. All planned.

That's racist. All neighborhoods and businesses should be respected equally. A neighborhood of immigrants and African-Americans should be treated no better or worse than any other neighborhood.

But before these idiots can vote I hope they do a little research. Otherwise there will be more leaders like idiot AOC. Go home, and better not vote. These rioters should not be allowed to vote, as they clearly hate the country and its people.

She is brave, and I salute her service to this nation. And she's right about registering to vote, that's how the Irish in the late 1800s turned their situation around. Use your voice in the voting booths to get people in office who will actually help you

These so called protesters obviously think that black lives do not matter as they destroy the communities of the hard pressed black and mixed race communities.

When she is encouraging people to vote, I wonder who for. For the people who want to use force to stop these rioters, or for the people who enable and make excuses for them?
