Riots 2020

Learn the truth about the most destructive riots in the U.S. in over half a century . . .

This documentary on the Riots of 2020 is roughly one hour and 45 minutes of street interviews, and actual footage by God in a Nutshell from the heart of the madness.

The documentary was filmed literally during the riots, protests and looting in California, New York, Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antonio Texas.

More specifically, we filmed interviews and footage in Texas on the way to my cousin officer Caleb Rule’s funeral.

My cousin was shot and killed in the line-of-duty during the haze of the riots.

During the shooting of this documentary, I would edit each night at hotels.

On one of the nights, in a parking garage of a downtown hotel (with security) windows on my vehicle were smashed, several storage drives and drones taken.

On one of the drives that was stolen, was the footage of my cousin Caleb Rule’s funeral. So, the only footage I have is what I had already put in this film prior to the break-in.

In the morning, I discovered that outside the parking garage of the hotel were lines of tents and hundreds, if not thousands, of squatters. I walked alongside the endless camps and tents (in the once nice part of Denver) and stopped at some men who were openly breaking into the electrical box on the street light; for whatever cause I don’t know.

I offered some of the people there money with no questions aksed if I could simply get help getting my drives back.

We were told: “Come on man. We’re just people trying to get high. At least you’ve got a vehicle.”


I pray heavily against the spirit of whatever this is destroying the United States. I also pray for strength, honor and courage in the men and women in military and law enforcement.

This is a very good and eye-opening film. I hope you enjoy it.
