WATCH: Heavily-Armed Italians Guard Family Bakery in Cleveland
It’s the worst of circumstances for small business owners in big cities.
First Blue State governors and mayors ordered the mom and pop stores to shut down. It was the only way to stop the coronavirus.
Then, many of those very stores were hit by looters – pillaging and plundering live on national television. The police nowhere to be found.

By and large small business owners have been abandoned by government leaders. And many have decided to take measures into their own hands.
In Philadelphia – several dozen large men stood guard outside Target – telling fox news they were protecting their neighborhood store.

And in Cleveland, Ohio a heavily-armed Italian family stopped looters from burning down Corbo’s Bakery.
Mrs. Corbo telling reporters the rioters came at the family with rocks and baseball bats – said they had no choice but to protect their business.
“They came at us with bats, threw rocks and stones and I was like, alright,” co-owner Selena Corbo told Cleveland19.com.
After protesters tried to force their way inside with bats and other weapons, owner Joe Corbo and his two sons armed themselves with guns and told the rioters that they would not allow them inside the bakery, Fox 8 reported.
“We don’t want any trouble, we don’t want you guys in here damaging our property, we’re just protecting our business and truthfully, I would say maybe 80% of them understood and left us alone,” one of the owners told the television station.
Let’s cut to the chase – these business owners pay taxes – a lot of taxes. They expect certain services in return – not the least is police protection – especially when anarchists are burning down your city.
