Demonstrators have broken into a Minneapolis police headquarters, setting fires and destroying everything in sight

The Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd precinct headquarters was breached late on Thursday night

officers have since retreated

Source 1


The ultimatum came early on Friday morning from the president’s Twitter handle, slamming Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey as “very weak” and a “radical left mayor,” while warning that the federal government would take over the situation if local authorities don’t bring it under control.

Things are absolutely popping off. Late last night, Minneapolis protesters overwhelmed and took over the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd precinct headquarters, destroying everything in sight. The police were forced to evacuate. I wonder if any weapons were left behind and stolen?
Now Trump is threatening to send in the military if the local authorities can't handle the situation.

I wonder how scared that cop is seeing Minneapolis burning and police losing entire precinct headquarters to protesters over what he did.

It's a Warzone down here. Buildings burned. Police overwhelmed. 3rd precinct PD HQ has been ransacked and lit on fire after police withdrew from the site outnumbered and overwhelmed.

Protests are now spreading across the metro area in both Saint Paul and Minneapolis as well as a number of suburbs. Nationwide other cities are joining in: Denver, NYC, LA confirmed

My guess is the national guard rolls in at dawn when the protesters are tired and daylight shines.

Trump never sent the "military" into chicago, as he threatened, he really can't/won't send them in here.

It's, sadly, states rights and the governors call. If he does use a military force it will have to be the national guard.

While the leadership of this state is weak and scared, it really won't have to come to federal intervention, sooner or later, the guard will get the green light.

Chauvin and Floyd previously worked together.

A former club owner in south Minneapolis says the now-fired police officer and the black man who died in his custody this week both worked security for her club up to the end of last year.


This is interesting if they knew each other...

I know right. The USA right now reminds me somewhat of the Soviet Union in 1990...

Perhaps being so divisively partisan, in a country armed to the teeth, and where the economics seem to still favor one skin color over another, and where the rich get way richer and the poor can be homeless or dead or whatever, was a bad idea?

Perhaps there are consequences in riling up millions of people just so you can insult your opponents?

Because sometimes, stuff happens and it shows that no-one is actually in control.

Then people start to take the law into their own uncoordinated, and opinion-driven hands, and things don't "just go away".

Been watching it all unfold the past few hours. Total insane chaos.

Boom?

City of Minneapolis
‏Verified account @CityMinneapolis

We're hearing unconfirmed reports that gas lines to the Third Precinct have been cut and other explosive materials are in the building.

If you are near the building, for your safety, PLEASE RETREAT in the event the building explodes.

Aerial view looks like a war zone.

The National Guard just arrived to Minneapolis.

Protesting in Manhattan, L.A., Denver, Memphis, Columbus OH.

Meanwhile, 7 people were shot at a protest over justice for Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky tonight, 1 critical.

Spreading like a manufactured virus.

Lol, you realize 99.9999% of America is carrying on just fine outside these zones where reps and the media affiliates that serve their audience work with and for outside money to influence targeted populations.

Short memories much?? This happens every few years. This year the media is doing its best to try to fill the American population with terror and dread. Do the chicken littles ever get tired of this routine??

The country will be fine after the election and when more of the soros/china Infltration syndicate start getting picked off with an increased fervor.

Has the Media and Political Leaders chastised the protestors for not wearing Face Masks or staying 6 feet apart, like they did to the Lansing, Michigan protestors 2 weeks ago?

I wonder how wild it will get over the weekend and if there will be Martial Law by Monday. I hope there is no more police brutality in other cities. You combine those protests with coronavirus protests and you will have major civil unrest nationwide. The whole country could eventually go on martial law if the chaos spreads everywhere.

President Trump wanted to send in the military to capture assassin-thugs here in Chicago, but Mayor Rahm Emmanuel wouldn't go for it. The mayor was satisfied with 74% of murders going unsolved.

This is what set the riot off.



This was literally cold-blooded murder in broad daylight like it was nothing. No wonder this caused a riot. It's exactly what someone might do if they wanted to start a riot. A cop kills a man in broad daylight and the other cop just stands around to protect his brother in blue. Absolutely astonishing corruption on display here.

That said, the rioting is horrible too.



Sad situation and a great opportunity for Far Left politicians and media to stir up more chaos across the nation. Things have to change. Police absolutely must act when a brother in blue crosses the damn line. This murder was 100% preventable.

Trumps second tweet re; THUGS + WHEN THE LOOTING STARTS, THE SHOOTING STARTS — is ignorant and not very presidential.

According to Trump: they are Sons of BITCHES when they take a knee in peaceful protest. And THUGS when they riot.

When Black people and POC try to bring awareness to the police brutality and the myriad of social injustices taking place within America PEACEFULLY—the racist ignorant bitches shut them down. Kaepernick got banished.

And when they protest in a non-peaceful manner: they get shut down.

What a wicked disgusting nation.

What to do...?

*******

Every-time ONE cop is bad cop.. all the low life trash goes crazy and destroy everything.
There are always "bad ones" everywhere there is human involved, does not matter what line of work.

So you’re blaming the media?

Good to see

You start by not destroying the city you live in. After this riot is finally over their city will be forever changed for the worse and that will only have a domino effect on their lives. Business that wasn't burned will leave. Destroyed business will not reopen. Anyone with the financial means to leave will do so, which means even less business. More poverty will equal less opportunity and even more crime. Good luck living in the # hole you're creating there.

You're blind if you can't see the narrative the media pushes. Tptb in this country want is divided and they use the media to make sure it happens. It's working to perfection.
