#6 Read the autopsy findings. Stress from the arrest exacerbated preexisting heart condition along with various intoxicants. He did not die from strangulation or asphyxiation. While the officer seems likely to have been guilty of excessive force and assault (battery) he did not commit murder or manslaughter. They are overcharging him as an expedient way to calm public disorder. Charges against the others would be highly suspect

#9 @ #6 - Black lives may matter, but the facts don't.

Be ready for another round of riots after the trial. After all, the "police officer" was just performing a "discretionary" duty.

#10 There is no point to imposing a curfew unless the mayor is prepared to enforce it.

#11 That mayor's a man of action and tough on crime. /sarc

#12 Wait. Couldn't he just enforce the "social distancing" requirements? Won't all the rioters get COVID-19?

#13 Of course rioters won't obey a curfew. But having a curfew gives the police cause to not arrest people, instead of not arresting them for looting, arson, and shooting each other.

#14 All I know is if I go down the street and bash a few store front windows and perhaps take a few things out of the establishment, I'm in a heap of trouble. If I gather a couple of mates to do the same, still in a heap of trouble. But the Minnesota authorities have given these microbe rioters carte blanche. Soon we will get to the point (if not there already) that that horse is already out of the barn, and any actions by the authorities will appear "excessive"....and, of course, racist.

#15 I was reminded today of a bumper sticker I saw in the Western part of Maryland many years ago. It said” if if we had known how much trouble it was gonna make, we’d have picked the cotton ourselves “. Prophetic!

#16 Out-of-state protesters? White supremacists? Russians?

Yeah...I don't think so
Jail records show most arrested in Minneapolis riots have Minnesota addresses

#17 Update From Frank G’s link an hour ago:

A searchable jail roster is available online.

Speaking Saturday, Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder, however, said that sometimes people arrested will provide false information. He says background checks are showing some people arrested have records from other areas.

Meanwhile, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter is backtracking after saying that 100 percent of the people arrested for causing disorder in his city were from out of state.

Three-quarters of the people arrested in St. Paul had Minnesota addresses, according to data provided to FOX 9 by police.

Of the 18 total arrests, 12 had Minnesota addresses, four were from out of state, and two were unknown.

Saturday evening, Carter acknowledged his earlier statement was inaccurate


One hypothesis superseded by reality. But how many of them were white, and therefore still probably Antifa?

#18 Minneapolis is pretty progressive. It wouldn't be hard to get all the white, Antifa "outside agitators" you need without going very far.

#19 No matter. Just shift the narrative again. It's still whitey's fault, cuz we wuz infiltrated!

Minnesota's "community" leaders are now claiming that the violence was caused by - get this - out-of-state white supremacists!

...They were reverends and rabbis and people of the Islamic faith. They spoke in Somali, Spanish and English. And they pleaded, at times through tears, for their hurting communities to stay home Saturday night to prevent more pain.

Called together by Gov. Tim Walz, a group of Minnesota community leaders spent nearly two televised hours Saturday morning acknowledging the outrage over the death of George Floyd. ..."White people from other communities are coming into my community...as if it wasn't bad enough already,"

[??? 'Bad enough already'? Because of your own people?]

...said Justin Terrell, executive director of the Council for Minnesotans of African Heritage. "Go home now. The fascists on the plane right now, turn around."

Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, a member of the White Earth Band of Ojibwe, ... was a community organizer for more than two decades, marching in the streets after any fatal police encounter.

"That space on 38th and Chicago is sacred ground, and people should be able to come together on that sacred ground and mourn and grieve and demand change and justice," Flanagan said.

"In this moment, we cannot, because there are detractors.
There are white supremacists. There are anarchists. There are people who are burning down the institutions that are core to our identity and who we are."

#20 Ah, beware the sinister white-black supremacist-anarchist bund!

Klansmen and Antifa unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains!

#21 @ #19 - I give these imbeciles credit for one thing: saying what they are saying with a straight face. Mean Gene Okerlund had an easier time keeping a straight face in all his years with WWF.

#22 Hard to keep a straight face with this delightful scene from Burbank/Beverly Hills just now ... It would be straight out of WWF, except the fence they slammed their own idiot into is made of steel

#25 This however is tragic: Dallas man nearly killed trying to defend his shop just now. Horrific 24 seconds of close in video from someone in a mob of around 20, pelting him with rocks and curb-stomping him until he is lying face down in a pool of his own blood. Fortunately he seems to have survived and is being treated now
