Whenever you react to something, it is always best to have all of the information before you react.
If you act on wrong information you will find yourself looking like a complete idiot.
I get that there are people that are mad right now, but if you are going to go off and set the city on fire you better not be doing it for the wrong reasn
It’s become quite obvious that the radical Leftists who are destroying one American city after another are looking for any excuse they can find to riot and loot.
Wanton destruction and theft exploded again in Minneapolis Wednesday evening over an incident that did, indeed, involve the death of another black man and police.
But the cops didn’t shoot him and he wasn’t unarmed: He killed himself.
[A]t about 6 p.m., the male suspect was located on foot on Nicollet Mall between 8th Street and 9th Street. As officers approached the suspect, the suspect produced a handgun and took his own life. Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder said people began to live stream to social media that officers had shot the suspect in the head. Elder said that information is false and police have surveillance video of the incident taking place.
“He appears to have seen officers approaching. He turned into a doorway of a building, produced a handgun, put it up underneath his chin. He then adjusted his stance, and shot himself underneath the chin closer to where it meets the neck,” Elder said.
Minneapolis police even posted surveillance video of the incident to prove that the suspect — who was being sought by officers because he allegedly shot another man — but later took it down from online because the department determined it was harmful to the man’s family.
And the governor acted this time, ordering state police and the National Guard into the beleaguered city, which will take years to recover, if it ever fully does.
“Minneapolis, it’s time to heal. We must rebuild and recover. Dangerous, unlawful behavior will not be tolerated. The State Patrol is headed to Minneapolis to help restore order. I remain in close contact with the city and every state resource stands ready to help bring peace,” Democratic Gov. Tim Walz said in a tweet.
But it was all reactionary. Mobs turned out once again to destroy what doesn’t belong to them, take what isn’t theirs, and commit random acts of violence over a lie.
If people are willing to burn down neighborhoods, destroy and kill on behalf of violent criminal sex offenders, they will riot for anyone—including someone who kills himself. This is #BlackLivesMatter. https://t.co/3VZt8yeGhY

What will it take for this nightmarish behavior to end? Will these ‘protests’ simply burn themselves out, like that Left-wing lunatic mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, says, or will they go on and on and on, gaining in intensity and violence?
