    Minneapolis overwhelmed again by protests over Floyd death

    Minneapolis overwhelmed again by protests over Floyd death

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Fires burned unchecked and thousands protesting the police killing of George Floyd ignored a curfew as unrest overwhelmed authorities for another night in Minneapolis, and the governor acknowledged Saturday that he didn’t have enough manpower to contain the chaos.

    The new round of tumult — which has also spread to other cities — came despite Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz vowing Friday to show a more forceful response than city leaders had the day before. But by early Saturday morning, Walz said he didn’t have enough troops, even with some 500 National Guardsmen.

    “We do not have the numbers,” Walz said. “We cannot arrest people when we are trying to hold ground.”

    Walz said he was moving quickly to mobilize more than 1,000 more Guard members, for a total of 1,700, and was considering the potential offer of federal military police. But he warned that even that might not be enough, saying he expected another difficult night Saturday.

    It's a combination of bad factors: pandemic lockdown, a history of racial unrest in the American Midwest. It might take Federal troops to bring this under some kind of control.

    They should focus on preventing arson and looting and forget arrests for now. Just photograph everything and everyone. The last riot in Canada was in Vancouver in 2011, over a hockey game (honest to God!). It took months but they identified and charged everyone involved.

    It is important to remember a lot of these people are not protesting over Floyd. They are professional protesters using this tragedy to cause damage and steal money. A lot of them are no even black.

    I urge President Trump to grant the guards to use all the resources necessary to curb riots, disturbance, major violence, and terrorism-related social security issues. These aren't peaceful protests. They are criminals.

    Innocent civilians need to stay at home. Don't be foolish. If there is a pandemic, why would you go outside at night near a large group of criminals? Stupid on dumb.
    Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there?”

    Mayor spox says that almost 80 percent of all arrested LAST NIGHT are from outside Minnesota and a good many from out of state.

    They intend to contract trace the arrestees and compare with their criminal records from elsewhere and they plan to identify the worst culprits, so that Minneapolis can understand the forces acting on their city in days to come, as resident of the Southside begin cleaning up.

    With the pandemic, President Trump needs to authorize more swift action. The national guard needs to take initiative, take out these terrorists. Setup IEDs, tear gas. Round up those scum.

    Figures. Career criminals from out of town looking to make a quick score under the cover of a protest and civil unrest. Scumbags.
    It’s in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, it’s easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.
