    No I dont think they thought that at all. I think they thought they were doing the right thing.
    After watching another news crew in Louisville get rubber bullets shot at them by police, I agree.

    Just saw Peng post about it on the last page.

    Man. Been working on boarding up stores all day long, and it's going to carry over to many other states.

    Denver had a near riot on their hands last night too.

    Should be an interesting weekend.

    Would be nice to have a President that didn't add to it all.

    Glad that Minnesota cop was arrested... may he be tried and convicted.
    I learned today there will be a protest outside my store today around 3 pm (Saturday). Should be interesting.

    Did you guys see this? There's video of the guy smashing windows with a hammer and threatening the people who followed him, apparently his ex-wife recognized him.

    Oh good!

    That's the problem with these times. ANyone says anything on Twitter and it blows up.

    Like the cop wearing a Make Whites Great Again hat.

    So yes, there's a lot of Fake News floating around.

    Liquor store five blocks to the east of me got hit last night, so did the gas station five blocks to the west. Slept last night with a heavy blunt object next to the bed in case I needed to chase anyone off. The sound of helicopters and the smell of smoke permeated the air.

    My sister in law has a friend who was just out in the middle of this. Not protesting not looting, just trying to get home, I think, and he got shot in the head with a rubber bullet. Now he’s in the hospital with bleeding on the brain.

    Whoever keeps asking rhetorically “how can this year possibly get worse?” you need to shut the fuck up right now.

    Sounds to me like she has a case against the city of Minneapolis.

    I refer to this incident (to which I was at) while I was in college.

    Best deterrent is a barking dog.
    Second best deterrent is the sound of a shell being loaded into a pump action.
    Let's hope it won't come to that. The 2nd one I mean. Stay safe, ride out the storm.

    And what a surname the perp has. Chauvin, same as the French person on whom the word 'Chauvinistic' is based. Jingoistic is a derivate of that also.

    Chauvinism is a form of extreme patriotism and nationalism and a belief in national superiority and glory. It can also be defined as "an irrational belief in the superiority or dominance of one's own group or people".[1] Moreover, the chauvinist's own people are seen as unique and special while the rest of the people are considered weak or inferior

    Was just out running an errand. Lots of people on the street walking towards the affected areas with brooms and garbage bags. Several corners organizing and distributing free food for folks suddenly finding themselves in a food desert. Neighbors organizing with neighbors to help us stay safe together.

    THIS is the Minneapolis I know.

    Every major highway going in and out of the Twin Cities is shut down. Curfew in effect. National Guard is mobilized.

    One large gathering at 31st and Nicollet, one group headed towards down town.

    Law enforcement might be moving in right now.

    Cops in St Paul / West St Paul pulling over vehicles w/o license plates. Occupants scatter, vehicles towed, and ‘tools’ recovered.

    They had an overhead live shot of law enforcement moving in forty five minutes after curfew started.

    It was fucking glorious.

    Leaders of the peaceful protests during the day repeatedly urged people to leave at curfew, then they bailed.

    I rather enjoyed this. I guess these people didn't feel like the curfew applied to them.
