OK here’s a big thread of pictures from Lake Street in Minneapolis, the heart of where the riots went down.

Might take me a little while to get all these.

Many businesses had appeals to the rioters not to harm them.

Here was a Walgreens they burnt to the ground.
Hope this place doesn’t get robbed in the meantime.

Firstly, what sparked me to write everything down and start a thread, was the creepy clip of 'paramedics' taking (dragging) the body away...

It's a particularly gruesome part of the video... just a heads up #patriots

Several things already wrong with this...
- No CPR or attempt of FA
- Doesn't check for pulse, ever
- Make-up the gurney street-side
- Put a sheet on the floor w/out ever checking patient
- He wipes something off his head and rubs it between his fingers (but there's no blood?)

The more details that get exposed about this incident the fishier this smells.

Police release new footage of George Floyd arrest.

More details. This video footage is a different angle to the last video when police officers approached George Floyd's SUV when his friends were told to exit vehicle. This video shows what happened after.

After discovering that #GeorgeFloyd and #OfficerChauvin knew one another and had a history working together, and after listening to yesterday’s MN Department of Health #Covid press briefing, here is the readers digest version of my thoughts on what is going on:
The MN DoH said yesterday that they wouldn’t be surprised to see higher numbers of Covid due to the #riots, demographic, and lack of #SocialDistancing. Listen to video below at the 26 minute mark. (The last several minutes cut away to coverage of rioting.)
Governor Walz has stated that he doesn’t intend to fully reopen the state until there is a vaccine available.

Many have asked: Why are Black people so angry?

Here is why in a nutshell:

We can’t be handcuffed & arrested unless we are choked of air, until dead (#GeorgeFloyd)

We can’t go bird watching in Central Park (#ChristianCooper)

We can’t go jogging (#AmaudArbery).
2/ We can’t relax or sleep in the comfort of our own homes (#BothemSean and #AtatianaJefferson #BrionnaTaylor)

We can't ask for help after being in a car crash (#JonathanFerrell and #RenishaMcBride).

We can't have a cellphone (#StephonClark).
3/We can't leave a party to get to safety (#JordanEdwards).

We can't play loud music (#JordanDavis).

We can’t sell CD's (#AltonSterling).

We can’t sleep (#AiyanaJones)

We can’t walk from the corner store (#MikeBrown).

Person in this video is a police officer Jacob Pederson of the St.Paul Police Department, according to his ex-wife, who identified him.
In video Pederson started smashing windows and kick started the riot in South #Minneapolis. After being confronted by people, he fled the scene
This is allegedly a conversation between Pederson's ex and her friend.

It shows that police officer Pederson used her mask and gloves.

So police in #US is trying to make protests violent so they can have pretext to use brutal force on them?

And now the Governor of #Minnesota activates their #NationalGuard to try to end the protests that started because their police officer murdered #GeorgeFloyd

Something that has been helpful for me:

To all my white friends, and family who don't understand the anger that came to a head last night.

Imagine that everyone you ever hated was killing members of your community with impunity and then saying it's your fault.
Imagine that you were told you weren't human, and you could tell that you weren't in the eyes of the white man behind the tear gas launcher.
Imagine that you don't feel safe in your own home.

1. Also I have a short story for all of the antifa non-black protesters going to Minneapolis. A few days after Trump was elected, I attended an anti-Trump March. It was about probably 10-11 pm at the time so It's dark out and there are cops everywhere who seem to be on edge. As
2. I'm marching, I see a group of black folks taking pictures and I go over to join them, but as I'm walking in their direction I see a white kid with a black mask on and he throws fireworks on the ground and walks off as they start popping. The only thing I could think about
3. At that moment is "I'm about to get shot" because there are literally cops EVERYWHRE. Luckily, I didn't get shot, but my overall point is, have some common fucking sense. Please do not put Black people in anymore danger than they are already in and please don't engage in

1. Please amplify this folks. I want everyone in Minneapolis to be very careful. A few years ago, several White supremacists attempted to infiltrate a Black Lives Matter protest, and when protesters attempted to eject them, they ended up shooting five protesters.
2. Please be careful, and please be aware that there will likely be racist infiltrators at these protests, the protest that I mentioned in regards to Jamar Clark also happened in Minnesota, so I'm almost certain racists will try some shit. If these people show up they will likely
3. Try to create a situation to provoke cops to shoot at protesters. Don't fall for it. Be careful. Be vigilant. Stay safe.

I'm just going to leave this here just so y'all can stop acting like it was only black people in those stores grabbing shit.

Also, people observed this man breaking a window and walking away, and there is some speculation that this one may actually be an undercover cop
Also, Steve Smith from American Dad was out there too.
