WATCH: Heartbroken Citizens Who Had Their Businesses Destroyed By Black Lives Matter Explain How Much Pain They Are in

It is an emotional day for business owners in Kenosha, Wisconsin, who returned to their shops to see the destruction caused by Black Lives Matter rioters over the past two days.

Speaking to Elijah Schaffer of The Blaze, business owners shared their heartbreak in a series of videos posted by the journalist on Twitter.

In one video, a business owner on the verge of tears explains how his parents started their business in their garage before moving to the shop that rioters destroyed.

“It’s emotionally hurtful, but we didn’t do anything to anybody. Why did we deserve it?”

Townhall reporter Julio Rosas also spoke to the business owners about the aftermath.

“I spoke with Scott and his mother Linda. Their furniture store was set on fire last night during the Kenosha riots. Linda cried at the sight of the wreckage. Scott had a response to people who would say it’s just property and there’s insurance,” Rosas wrote.

Another business owner told Schaffer, “We are in hard times, you are making this harder than it has to be” at the site of the wreckage.

The owner of a used car dealership that was targeted told Schaffer that “I just don’t understand why something like this would happen” as he observed the damage to his legacy.

Rioters also attacked a 70-year-old man who was attempting to protect his mattress store last night. He received a broken jaw, black eye, and multiple stitches for trying to put out the fire.
