Stacks of bricks suspiciously left unattended in riot hotspots across the US have protesters and journalists wondering whether the violent street clashes and widespread destruction is being orchestrated by hidden hands.
Under normal circumstances, its not everyday you see a large pallet of bricks sitting on a street corner, but reports of pallets of bricks turning up as if by magic in over half a dozen major cities over the weekend has investigators trying to get to the bottom of who may be giving rioters the tools they need to turn peaceful protests violent and wreak wholesale destruction.

A group of protesters in Dallas, Texas called attention to an unexpected pile of bricks near the city’s courthouse on Saturday.
“Ain’t no damn construction around here!” a demonstrator says in the clip, while another urges his fellow protesters to “do better.”
Brick sightings soon exploded across the Dallas area. Commentators had plenty of theories, claiming the rioters’ fairy godmother was Antifa, but no-one has delivered conclusive proof.
