Damn Right, Maam. The motherf**kers are the weak links in America’s chain.
Well, by now, social unrest in Minneapolis, worsening by the day, has become an international story. The world is watching as protesters breached the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct building and set it ablaze on Thursday night.
The police station on E. Lake Street, across from the Target that was looted and burned on Wednesday, has been the center of demonstrations this week as people demand justice after the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody on Monday.
On early Friday morning, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey explained his reasonings to evacuate officers from the 3rd Police Precinct.
As police officers were evacuated from the precinct, some reports said by a helicopter, the Minneapolis National Guard entered the city with 500 armed soldiers and fully armored Humvees.
One Twitter user captures a video of “multiple Humvees probably from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Air Station are headed to the 3rd Precinct.
So here’s where shit hit the fan on Thursday night. Unicorn Riot News, documented the moment, via live stream when protesters stormed the Minneapolis 3rd Police Precinct building. Video from inside the police station shows protesters igniting fires, and at one point, someone lights a weapon storage closet on fire, and ammunition can be heard exploding.
Perhaps what is most notable about the whole farce is the fact that many local residents – not just white ones – are furious at what the “thugs” are doing.
As Summit News reports, a video clip shows a black woman and former NAACP chapter president trying to collect medication for her daughter outside a Target store in St. Paul telling rioters “these motherf**kers need to go home!”
“Leave this shit alone – “these motherf**kers need to go home!these people don’t give a damn about George Floyd.”Diane Binns
Former NAACP Chapter President
The woman subsequently identified herself as Diane Binns, former president of the NAACP St. Paul from 2016-2018.
Critically, for the narrative-minded among you, she says she attended the initial protest against the killing of Floyd but after 30 minutes realized “it was going to be a riot, so I left.”
America is quickly descending into chaos as social unrest could spread to other major cities this weekend. Wealth inequality in many inner cities is at record levels. More than 40 million people are unemployed with a crashed economy, and people are already furious about virus lockdowns. This all suggests a perfect storm of unrest could flare up across the country.
