National Guard called to respond to Minneapolis violence
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz called in the National Guard on Thursday as looting broke out in St. Paul and a wounded Minneapolis braced for more violence after rioting over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man in police custody, reduced parts of one neighborhood to a smoking shambles.
The Minneapolis unrest ravaged several blocks in the Longfellow neighborhood, with scattered rioting reaching for miles across the city. It was the second consecutive night of violent protests following the death of Floyd, who gasped for breath during a Monday arrest in which an officer kneeled on his neck for almost eight minutes. In footage recorded by a bystander, Floyd can be heard pleading that he canât breathe until he slowly stops talking and moving.
Another protest was announced for Thursday evening near county offices in downtown Minneapolis. Some stores in Minneapolis and the suburbs closed early,...

Hello there bro. Dave-Praying for you and yours also. You are missed on here as well as bro.Christopher.But, I understand that we all need to take a leave of absence now and then. Hope you both return soon. May God richly bless you.
The mobs need to carry signs that read: âLook at us , we rob, set fire to buildings, and create havoc, to stop police brutality and racism.â No one believes this is about George Floyd anymore, even their own Governor said that.
With Covid winding down, with Dem governors continually extending their emergency powers after the emergency aspect is gone, and resistance against house arrest growing, a new, but old theme is being resurrected. Crises never go to waste. Does anyone believe the rioters actually care about George Floyd the person?
UK Police on 'Restraints' ...... Apparently these kinds of restraint methods are world wide. The article below reports British police information on the subject.
Quote:- "Guidelines still allow the police to use restraint techniques that have proved fatal, a review of existing protocols reveals.
A 2010 report by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) into deaths in police custody states that between 1998 and 2009 there were 16 cases in which restraint was a direct or contributory factor to the death.
But research by the Bureau and the charity Inquest has identified a further eight cases where restraint was an issue â a figure 50% higher than the IPCCâs number.
âProportionateâ use of force Despite a body of research on the dangers of certain restraint holds, the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) says no restraint techniques are prohibited, as long as an officer can show the use of force was proportionate." https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/stories/2012-01-31/police-guidelines-permit-techniques-that-can-kill
Good points, Chrisgp. In fact, there are independent investigations into the incident by the FBI & others (Trump asked the FBI to expedite theirs a couple of days ago). The officer has been arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter.
It won't go over the heads of the rioters that it is Governor Walz, a Democratic-Farmer-Labor party guy, who is calling out the National Guard against them. Minnesota is reliably leftist leaning, consistently governed by the left end of the spectrum, meaning whole generations grow up there with a dependent and "we deserve" mentality. The best thing Trump could do is do or say nothing. Of course this is near impossible, but it is still the lefty guy who'll be remembered in this situation.
Biden and the Democrats are laughing and dancing with glee at the mayhem. They are using dissidents to foment racial anger to stem a growing movement of Blacks disaffected by the Party. They want Trump to fumble in word and deed in how he handles it. They are living up to their motto "Never let a crisis go to waste." It will be interesting to see if Wild E. Coyote (Super Genius) again fall victim to his own trap.
I have seen the still photo of the man under arrest and the white police officer kneeling with his knee on the manâs neck. This is extremely over the top policing. In Britain this police officer would have not only been fired, but charged with murder, and an independent enquiry launched. His three colleagues would have been fired, and maybe accused of other offences.
The black man involved was actually an active member of a church, (I donât know if it was evangelical or not), and did a lot of community work.
Tragically, the activists on the left, and the âCritical Raceâ people will get to work in this, George Soros will pour in his millions, and they will milk this for all it is worth right up to the election in November. Not only should the police officers be charged and held accountable, but the rioters should also be dealt with as there is no excuse for lawlessness and violence!! All in all, a bad and explosive situation.
Wow this is getting very interesting.. test all things... Here is a video where there is a man dressed in black clothing with a full mask some are claiming to be a saint paul under cover cop smasking Windows. Where a girl confirms this, the guy in red tshirt repeatedly saying you a cop you a cop... These freemason zionist do say never let a crisis go to waist... There is swear word once in the video at the end.. https://youtu.be/tYCb17RjUTQ This video shows who he was in short... https://youtu.be/1guAU536WtY
Divide and conquer. .sad. Father forgive them for they know not what they do.

True , I dont have hope in the courts generally speaking they are all r.c. freemasons protecting their own.. May God have mercy on us all in every choice we make in the name of god! Love the brotherhood rejoice in Him, be not a respecter of person. Heal the poor..For Jesus is able to make anyone stand who has professed Him.Glory in the cross rather than weakness.. With Christ all things are possible. We are one race in many nations ..We will all get along one day..

If the officers were arrested from the start , would there be riots,looting,justice delayed is denied. Some one died clear evidence showed he was murdered the officers should have been in custody just like a normal citizen !
Amy cooper tried to get away with her version of truth. Also brionna ..list goes on and on.and.on.

Its not on this news item ...one that was posted 5 days ago that they are lazy i posted white are no better...they know who they are it seems its always the same ones who are on their high horse looking down on the other christians that arent like them how good they are compared to others. Love the weakest brother this is the will of God. M.s they know who they are, they havent commented on this item yet.. I see the officers have now been officially arrested. We are one race all have sinned all need a better relationship with Jesus all need just 2 commandments Love your weakest brother who you see, despise not the day of small things test all things, we all have problems take them to Jesus our high priest!
I dont think anyone will say its right to burn down, loot....why bring it up its clearly not the right way to go are you saying this is a greater evil
I see ambulance offices were no better no cpr no care. He was dead at the scene! News reports that he resisted. Evidence no he didnt he complained gently that the cuffs were too tight.. He walk calmly with them. I see too these police had a reputation of thuggery. Why are they not in jail. What is it about America and those in authority thinking they can lord it over people,whos to know this wasnt the same as Christian cooper incidence with his check. George's friends tells the officers 20 times hes not resisting he say he carnt breath , then when he stops breathing for 4 mins police dont check for pulse nor do the office take his knee from his throat yet onlookers cry out check his pulse..... We are one blood, so what we have different skin..so what that some black people are lazy as some have posted elsewhere on s.a so are whites. After the lying media said he resisted , now that is not true as the cctv. Now they said he has a MEDICAL condition meaning you wont prove he died from a knee but media and medical lies.. Now Trump has an executive order to make liable videos on s.m.that can be taken both ways. Let see if truth videos will be banned up front. Warning grafic video g.flyod.. https://youtu.be/l6XAY0uKb2A

Let me agree with you. Generally speaking, in order for there to be a hate crime or some other racial injustice, the perpetrator must be a white male.
