Stores including Wendy’s, Target, Walmart and AutoZone were looted, ransacked and some set alight before rioters tried to bust open an ATM, as many ignored pleas from the Floyd family’s lawyer and Minnesota Governor Walz to protest peacefully Wednesday night.
Videos showed what was reported to be an apartment building entirely engulfed by flames as rioters stood and watched and the fire department was nowhere to be seen. An AutoZone store was also one of those which was set on fire.
Outside a GM Tobacco store, a group of four men with huge firearms were seen and said they had come to protect local businesses from looters,
During the riots, a woman in a wheelchair was punched in the head and sprayed with a fire extinguisher after trying to block protesters – allegedly with a knife in her hand.
I hope they are arrested for this. Sad that rioters feel the need to co-opt protests.
This is opportune excuse everytime for this awful criminal behavior.
Looting brings justice!!
Very liberal city. Very liberal city burning.
As Le Roi would say, it’s their own damn fault.
Minneapolis might as well just send the entire PD home for a couple of weeks if the best strategy City Hall can come up with for combating riots is to retreat and observe from a comfortable distance. Serve and protect, my ass.
No mar, i didn’t. You are lying again. Does it make you feel more manly?
Dad29, are you trying to shift the conversation to the USA’s military adventures overseas? Might makes right, right?
Awful. Just awful. Why can’t these thugs just peaceably take a knee.
“Does it make you feel more manly?”
Nah, my testosterone is in a pretty good zone.
I just enjoy showing you up making you look bad.
You make it so easy, it’s like playing T-ball.
Then why the compulsion to lie? Pathology? Paid to do it? Or can’t tell the difference?
Looks like liberals are raising hell throughout the country.
Why are liberals so violent in words and physical actions?
Nothing but but liberal thugs.
And Le Roi, if you don’t want me to use your words and actions against you, don’t be so stupid and lie constantly.
This is just sick. From Fox News: “Now, as his city is overwhelmed by crowds causing property damage and clashing with police, Frey’s own government said that it is giving out masks to the rioters — even though the state has prohibited gatherings of 10 or more people because of the pandemic.”
So, instead of trying to stop the rioting and destruction of property, this liberal, sick mayor hands out masks to rioters so they can continue to riot.
Just more evidence being a liberal means you have a mental illness…based on science.
Watching the TV coverage tonight, it’s clear that the local and state officials haven’t a clue.
It’s time to stop coddling the thugs.
Those cities need to take the Israeli approach to handle protestors. Warn them and then take action, up to lethal force if the thugs are a threat to life, well then, sucks to be them if they are killed.
Mar how about sending these guys in.
