The looters and idiots are stealing,burning and causing bedlam throughout the twin cities.500 national guardsman are arriving now.200 state troopers and conservation officers have also gone in to help.
One of the saddest things I have ever seen.My wife just got up and asked if I had enough ammunition,we are east of St.Paul,2 miles from Wisconsin,so I doubt these clowns will head this way.
What a sad thing.

Should have nipped it in the bud, going to be hard to put the genie back in the bottle.

The Mayor or the Governor won't do anything, this could get really ugly.

Rat,those causing trouble are the ones who helped vote the mayor and governor into office.They don't want to alienate their voting pool.

I Agree Tom, that's their base. Can't imagine living in that mess right now, must be like a third world country.

Speaking of third world countries, what are the thousands of Somalis in the Twin Cities doing? Are they joining in the riots?

Looks like just as many whites rioting as blacks.
Young people letting off some covid steam.After being cooped up for so long they just went wild when they got loose.

The American blacks and the Somalis do not always get along so well. Seen a few head scarves on protesters but probably not many Somalis involved would be my guess.

Listening to the Mayor, this guy is completely out of his depth. He has not answered one question. He did say it's ok to burn down a city police station as long as no one got hurt. What a joke, he should have squashed the looters the first night.

All those mom and pop shops get windows busted and looted, and the damage the protesters do to their own communities. What a sickening site, does no good long term to destroy your neighborhood and folks businesses that had nothing to do with whatever issues the protestors are against.
Crazy how they turn into such idiots with ill-directed anger.
Jim


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Sadly, just as the actions of 4 police have a negative impact on the blue people, this reaction will negatively impact......

Too bad there wasn't a way to record what each individual was responsible for looting.....tally up the loot and deduct it from the welfare cheque.

Disgusting. Young men with an excuse to destroy stuff and get away with it.

I've seen plenty of women in the videos as well. It wasn't long ago 2012-2016 they were told it was okay to loot/riot when you felt like it with perceived racism. They've just been waiting for a reason to let it go again. I'm not condoning what happened to Floyd as I really have no first hand knowledge of the situation, but this type of reaction was once applauded by an administration. The only thing I'm surprised about is how long the current administration has allowed it to happen.


Eventually everything must die.

Like I said in another post, the mayor was more concerned that the looters practice social distancing. Unbelievable.

I don't know the first thing about the mayor, but I'm going to guess he had peaceful protestors in mind. Hard to believe he could have said anything that would change the course of events with regard to the rioting and looting. I hope they figure out how to get it under control.
