Anmol Khindri is a member of the family that owns Car Source, a used car dealership that was all but destroyed after two nights of arson and vandalism left the business suffering a loss he estimated at $2.5 million, according to the Kenosha News.
“Everybody watched it burn to ashes,” Anmol Khindri, a member of the family who owns Car Source, said. “Nobody did nothing about it – nothing.”
“I have a family to feed. I have 20 other families who have worked for this business over the last eight or nine years.”
Owners of a downtown business destroyed as unrest swept through the city following the shooting of Jacob Blake are desperately seeking help to recoup what they lost. https://t.co/RmvOE46dQt— Kenosha News (@Kenosha_News) August 30, 2020
