MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There was chaos and destruction in Minneapolis Tuesday night as police officers and protesters clashed over the death of George Floyd.

The outrage began with a video showing police arresting the 46-year-old in south Minneapolis Monday night.

“I can’t breathe! Please, the knee on my neck,” Floyd is heard saying in the video.

A harbinger of things to come?

Future affordable housing lost due to flames during Minneapolis riot
https://www.fox9.com/news/future-affordable-housing-lost-due-to-flames-during-minneapolis-riot

Quote
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - The apartment complex under construction in south Minneapolis that burned Wednesday night and into Thursday morning was a mixed-use development which would have provided affordable housing for the area.

The site of Midtown Corner is in the former Rainbow Foods parking lot located at East Lake Street and Hiawatha Avenue. Flames ripped through the wood-framed, six-story building Wednesday night and could be seen for several city blocks well into the morning hours.

The rioters have destroyed an apartment under construction. It was meant to provide affordable housing in the area. This is madness!  :censored: :mad: :argh:

A list of the buildings damaged, looted in Minneapolis and St. Paul
https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/a-list-of-the-buildings-damaged-looted-in-minneapolis-riots

Quote
Wednesday night's protest-turned-riot has left behind a trail of burned out buildings, smashed windows, and looted stores in south Minneapolis and beyond.

Much of the damage was centered on the area around the Minneapolis Police 3rd Precinct on Lake Street, where protests over the death of George Floyd led to a minority of demonstrators turn their attentions to nearby businesses.

Here are the reports of damage or looting that have come in since Wednesday evening. This story will be update as more reports come in:

In Minneapolis
– Target Lake Street: Looting, graffiti, property damage, fire damage.

– Wendy's Lake Street: Fire, destroyed.

– Autozone Lake Street: Fire, destroyed.

– Cub Foods Lake Street: Looting, property damage, fire damage.

Too many buildings to list.

Some businesses like Gandhi Mahal have put up signs that they are minority owned, in hopes of not being looted. Still windows broken.

Minneapolis police station on fire as Twin Cities protests grow
https://www.startribune.com/twin-cities-protests-grow-after-gov-walz-calls-up-guard/570830002/

Quote
The Twin Cities continued to convulse Thursday in the wake of the Memorial Day death of George Floyd while being restrained by a Minneapolis police officer, another chaotic chapter in America’s — and Minnesota’s — long reckoning with the killing of unarmed black men by law enforcement officers.

Framed by grief and rage over Floyd’s death and uncertainty over the coronavirus pandemic, the day came in waves: Buildings burned. The police chief apologized. Prayer circles formed at the site of Floyd’s killing. Business owners boarded up windows. Post offices closed.

And Gov. Tim Walz called in reinforcements — the first time the Minnesota National Guard has been activated for a civil disturbance in 34 years. More than 500 Guard members have been activated and sent to Minneapolis, St. Paul and other communities, the Guard said in a tweet late Thursday.

A Minneapolis police station has been set on fire. This is getting worse and worse!  :mad: :argh:

Protesters storm CNN building in fiery Atlanta protest
https://nypost.com/2020/05/29/protesters-storm-cnn-building-in-fiery-atlanta-protest/

Quote
ATLANTA — Protesters set a police car on fire, struck officers with bottles, vandalized the headquarters of CNN, and broke into a restaurant in downtown Atlanta as a demonstration that started peacefully quickly changed tone Friday evening.

Protesters used barricades to break police vehicle windshields and jumped from car to car. Hundreds of the protesters confronted police outside CNN headquarters. They spray-painted the large, iconic CNN logo outside the building, breaking a windowed entrance. One protester climbed on top of the sign and waved a “Black Lives Matter” flag to cheers from the crowd.

Protesters pelted officers who came over with bottles, striking some of them. Other bottles thrown at authorities exploded behind the police line, but no officers appeared to get hit. Protesters chanted, “Quit your jobs.”

The riot is spreading throughout the nation.

The elected officials who are letting this happen need to be arrested.

As soon as the first rock or bottle is thrown, the demonstration turns into a riot and it should be stopped with any means that is necessary.

If this were a bunch of conservatives protesting the closure of churches the result would be a lot different.

LIVE UPDATES: Heavy police, National Guard presence amid extremist riots
https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/live-heavy-police-national-guard-presence-in-minneapolis-amid-extremist-riots

Quote
Authorities are expecting major clashes between extremists and law enforcement in Minneapolis on Saturday evening.

Some 2,500 National Guard soldiers have been mobilized to respond to the civil unrest in Minneapolis, which started out as protests over the killing of George Floyd, but which state and city leaders say has since been co-opted by extremist groups, predominantly from outside the city.

It is going to get worse.  :mad: :argh:

Pentagon ready to send troops to Minneapolis if state asks

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Pentagon says Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz hasn't asked the federal government to send troops to his state.

The Defense Department says it's ready to provide military help to authorities scrambling to contain unrest in Minneapolis, where the death of George Floyd has sparked the widespread protests.

The military could get involved if requested. I could see more unrest in the coming days.

Wisconsin mayor believes up to 75K 'agitators' headed to Minneapolis-St. Paul
https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/wisconsin-mayor-believes-up-to-75k-agitators-headed-to-minneapolis-st-paul

Quote
As many as 75,000 "agitators" could be targeting the Minneapolis-St. Paul area Saturday night, according to a letter from the mayor of Hudson, Wisconsin, Rich O'Connor.

O'Conner wrote the letter to Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, calling it a "dire situation" and imploring Evers to send help via the Wisconsin National Guard.

The letter cites the Minnesota Fusion Center – part of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension – alerting Minnesota authorities that "70,000 to 75,000 agitators are traveling today from locations such as Kansas City, Chicago, Ohio and other parts of the country to the Twin Cities. "

75,000 agitators or terrorists are in the Twin Cities area. Very troubling.

5,000 National Guard troops mobilized across 15 states, D.C.
https://www.foxnews.com/us/5000-national-guard-troops-mobilized

Quote
The National Guard will deploy troops across 15 states as well as Washington, D.C., the organization announced in a press release.

Governors reached out to activate Guard assistance ahead of demonstrations on Saturday night, when protests turned into violent riots. Even Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has asked for assistance, saying that these are no longer protests over the death of  George Floyd, the unarmed black man who died in police custody on May 25: “This is destruction. This is vandalism.”

The Guard has announced that it has activated around 5,000 troops as of Sunday morning to deploy to states across the country, with another 2,000 troops on standby. The troops will deploy to California, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Daktoa, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and the District of Colubmia.

The National Guard should of been deployed when the first sign of rioting happened.

Shootings at Indianapolis George Floyd protests leave one dead, two injured
https://nypost.com/2020/05/31/one-dead-two-injured-at-indianapolis-george-floyd-protests/

Quote
At least one person was killed and two more injured as gunfire broke out among Saturday’s violent George Floyd protests in Indianapolis, police revealed late Saturday.

“We are investigating multiple shootings Downtown,” Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) tweeted early Sunday, stressing that they were “NOT officer-involved incidents.”

“Downtown is not safe at this time. Residents are advised to avoid the area,” the force warned.

The fatality and injuries were revealed just before midnight in a hastily-called late-night press conference by IMPD Police Chief Randal Taylor, according to the Indianapolis Star.

The riots are getting more violent and deadly.  :mad: :argh:

NYPD’S Terrorism Chief Says Unnamed Groups Planned Protest Violence in Advance
https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/nypds-terrorism-chief-says-unnamed-groups-planned-protest-violence-in-advance/2440722/

Quote
New York's top terrorism official says there's evidence that members of anarchist groups from outside the city intentionally planned to incite violence at protests calling for justice in the death of George Floyd.

Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller said there is a high level of confidence within the NYPD that these unnamed groups had organized scouts, medics, and supply routes of rocks, bottles and accelerants for breakaway groups to commit vandalism and violence. There are strong indicators they planned for violence in advance using at times encrypted communications, he said.

One out of every seven arrests, of 686 so far since May 28, have been people from out of state, according to Miller. He said those arrested came from Massachusettes, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Iowa, Nevada, Virginia, Maryland, Texas and St. Paul, Minnesota.

Antifa is a well organized group and they have planned for a while.

Happening here too. The local activists are trying to calm things down, but the thugs won't listen.  And our curfew started at 9:00. No enforcement yet.

Secret Service agents wounded outside White House, car bombs feared; official says Trump was taken to bunker
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/secret-service-took-trump-to-underground-bunker-amid-george-floyd-protests

Quote
A senior official in the direct chain of command for defending Washington D.C. told Fox News that more than 50 Secret Service officers have been injured Sunday night so far, and that some rioters are throwing bottles and Molotov cocktails.

As observed in New York City and elsewhere, groups in D.C. are planting cars filled with incendiary materials for future use, Fox News is told.

U.S. Marshals and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents have been deployed to the streets of D.C. in an extraordinary move to beef up security alongside the National Guard, local police, and Homeland Security agents, including the Secret Service, the Justice Department confirmed late Sunday. Fox News has learned U.S. Attorney for D.C. Mike Sherwin is heavily involved in the operation.

As authorities clashed with demonstrators for the third straight night, the parish house connected to the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street from the White House was also set on fire late Sunday. The parish house contains offices and parlors for gatherings. The basement, which was also on fire, is used for childcare during church services, and had recently undergone renovations.

The DEA is being deployed. The terrorists burned down St. John’s Episcopal Church. This is total madness!  :mad: :argh:

Quote
The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) building was also set ablaze near the White House. The AFL-CIO is one of the nation's largest pro-union groups.

An hour before the 11 p.m. ET curfew in D.C., police fired a major barrage of tear gas stun grenades into the crowd of more than 1,000 people, largely clearing Lafayette Park across the street from the White House and scattering protesters into the street.

Protesters piled up road signs and plastic barriers and lit a raging fire in the middle of H Street. Some pulled an American flag from a nearby building and threw it into the blaze. Others added branches pulled from trees. A cinder block structure, on the north side of the park, that had bathrooms and a maintenance office, was engulfed in flames.

Several miles north, a separate protest broke out in Northwest D.C., near the Maryland border. The Metropolitan Police Department says there were break-ins at a Target and a shopping center that houses Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Store, T.J. Maxx, a movie theater and specialty stores. Police say several individuals have been detained.

They even burned down American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) building.

George Floyd unrest: Cities face new looting amid stronger National Guard response, curfews
https://www.foxnews.com/us/george-floyd-riots-looting-national-guard-curfews

Quote
Cities across the country started seeing new looting on Monday night as nationwide demonstrations over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis escalated out of control yet again, and as President Trump vowed a tougher federal response.

In New York City, hundreds of looters were seen breaking their way into Downtown Manhattan businesses. In midtown, a group armed with sticks reportedly lit a fire to one business. Other stores such as Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Barnes and Noble were broken into as glass from broken windows covered the sidewalk, KABC-TV reported.

Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, some people were seen actively defying a curfew by staying outside police headquarters.

It is getting worse in New York City, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia.

'We came to riot': Illinois man livestreamed lighting fires, handing out explosives in Minneapolis, charges say
https://www.startribune.com/we-came-to-riot-illinois-man-livestreamed-lighting-fires-in-minneapolis/570930722/

Quote
An Illinois man who came to Minneapolis to riot over the weekend livestreamed himself handing out explosives, destroying property and appearing to set a Sprint store on fire, according to charges filed in the U.S. District Court of Minnesota on Monday afternoon.

Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, is charged with civil disorder, possession of unregistered explosives and participating in and organizing riots, making him the first to face federal prosecution for allegedly taking part in the fires, looting and other violence that engulfed the Twin Cities since the death of George Floyd in police custody.

Last Thursday night, Rupert, of Galesburg, Ill., posted on his public Facebook page an invitation for "goons" to join him in traveling to Minneapolis, where he said he was renting hotel rooms and planned to wreak havoc and "take hella good videos."

The livestreamed videos, cited as evidence by FBI investigators in the complaint, show his role in the riots on Friday night and early Monday, including distributing explosives and then announcing, "He's throwing my bombs ... they're going to bomb the police with them."

Matthew Lee Rupert is a terrorist. Here is his mugshot.

Boxes of matches and jars of gasoline spook Minneapolis residents
https://www.mprnews.org/story/2020/06/01/boxes-of-matches-and-jars-of-gasoline-spook-minneapolis-residents

Quote
A dry box of 250 kitchen matches stashed in a south Minneapolis alley; a gas mask found in a trash can in northeast Minneapolis; a salad dressing jar filled with gasoline — those are among the items that residents of Minneapolis and St. Paul have found around their homes.

Law enforcement officials have asked Minneapolis residents to be on the lookout for incendiary items, like water bottles filled with gasoline, that have been stashed in bushes or alleys, sometimes even far from where protests have taken place.

A week after George Floyd was killed, and after days of protests, property destruction and arson, even normally inconspicuous household items are sparking fear when residents encounter them.

Matches, gas mask, and gasoline have been found in the Twin Cities area.

I wonder if people saw someone putting those items for rioters to use.

Cuomo slams de Blasio's handling of riots, claims he has power to ‘displace’ mayor but not ‘at that point’
https://www.foxnews.com/us/cuomo-de-blasio-riot

Quote
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday slammed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's handling of riots in his city, calling it a "disgrace" and saying he has the power to "displace" the mayor -- although doesn't want to at this point.

"The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that," Cuomo said of the mayor.

Cuomo spoke after another night of devastation in the Big Apple, after protests in response to the death of George Floyd again devolved into riots and looting. The New York City Police Department tells Fox News that 700 arrests were made overnight. A half dozen police officers were injured, while at least six police vehicles were vandalized.

Cuomo said at a press conference that the mayor "underestimates" the scope and duration of the problem, suggesting he needs to deploy more police.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is ripping on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

New York City woman slams looters for wrecking small business: 'You needed money? Get a job!'
https://www.foxnews.com/us/new-york-city-woman-slams-looters-for-wrecking-small-business

Quote
In a heartbreaking video posted on social media, an elderly woman in New York City lashes out in a message to the looters who destroyed a small business.

“Look what you did to my store. Look!” she says, pointing behind her at an exposed storefront with wires hanging from the ceiling and people cleaning up inside.

“Look what you did to my store,” she repeats.

Here is the video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDrmkhJG89M

Quote
The woman in the video then walks over to a pile of debris at the curb in front of the store.

“Look!” she says again. “Look at the things you’ve done. Look. We’ve been here all night cleaning up. All night cleaning.

“Tell me Black Lives Matter. You lied. You wanted to loot the store. You needed money? Get a job -- like I do.

“Stop stealing. This is a neighborhood. We’re trying to build it up and you’re tearing it down.”

These rioters are terrorists.  :mad: :argh:
