Police sent the absolute wrong message.

Boogaloo Protesters Get PA System and Milk From Cops thedailybeast.com/anti-ice-prote… via @thedailybeast
Boogaloos hate cops and want to kill them. They show up armed at a police station to intimidate them. Chief of police 1) puts snipers on the rooftop just in case, and 2) brings them chocolate milk and a free PA system so they can express their hate that much louder.
Message sent to protesters who hate cops: just come at us armed and we'll kiss your hiney and bring you the beverage of your choice.
To address some of the comments, while there is some overlap between military and Boogaloo, there is none between cops and Boogs.

Cops are either 1) unaware of Boogs or 2) know that Boogs want to kill them.
In April, a Boogaloo decide to track down and kill cops in Texas and livestreamed his hunt. buzzfeednews.com/article/emmanu…
In May, the "kill cops" theme became so widespread among Boog groups, I put up a thread on it.
In late May, a Boog ambushed two federal officers, killing one and a week later shot two CA officers, again killing one. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_boog…
In May, three Boogaloos were arrested in Las Vegas. Their plot was to kill law enforcement officers at a BLM rally. news3lv.com/news/local/thr…
In June, two Boogs were arrested in South Carolina for instigating a riot against police. news3lv.com/news/local/thr…
In October, 14 defendants (a mix of Boogaloos and militants) were arrested in a kidnapping plot that including included attacks on law enforcement. cnn.com/2020/10/11/us/…
In March, a Boogaloo died in a shootout with police in Maryland. washingtonpost.com/local/public-s…
In October, a Boogaloo died in a shootout with the FBI in Michigan. vice.com/en/article/pky…
These are just the Boog cases off the top of my head. I'm probably missing a few and my files are not accessible at this time.

Boogaloo call to arms in Virginia tomorrow. Image
As you may remember, the Michigan boog/militia defendants had talked about kidnapping the Governor of VA. cbsnews.com/amp/news/fbi-s…
The man leading this rally said some rather inflammatory things about the VA governor this summer.

Man charged in plot to kidnap Whitmer shared stage with West Michigan sheriff at rally fox17online.com/news/local-new…
There's a lot of chatter about this picture.

The man is the picture is Brian Cash, not one of the defendants.
The sheriff in this article was a speaker at the 2019 Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officer Association (CSPOA) Liberty Conference. You all might remember the CSPOA from their support for Cliven Bundy in 2014 in Nevada.

Boogaloo Movement.

It's roughly a year-old movement now and as I've tweeted a zillion times before, it's not a cohesive group.
The radicalization path that leads a Boog to don the Aloha shirt generally determines which Boog faction he ends up in.

At this point, there are three factions, but these could merge or splinter in the coming months.
Faction 1)

The mostly younger Boogs came in via 4chan's /k/ weapons forum. They are libertarian, anti-cop, communicate with memes, and their goal is chaos. They compare the US to Rome just before it fell and they want to hasten that fall.
