Riots, Looting Break Out In Minneapolis After Murder Suspect Commits Suicide. Police Release Video.

By  Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire, August 26, 2020:

Rioting and looting once again broke out in Democrat-controlled Minneapolis on Wednesday night after the police were falsely accused of shooting a black man. Law enforcement officials quickly released a video showing that the man, who they said was a murder suspect, shot and killed himself.

“Groups of people are looting multiple stores in downtown Minneapolis,” FOX9 News reported. “Social media posts show images of people damaging items in a Target as well as broken windows of surrounding stores. Haskell’s liquor store and the Medical Arts building also appear to have been looted.”

Law enforcement officials, who were after the suspect for his alleged connection to a deadly shooting earlier in the day, released a video of the suspect that confirmed that the suspect shot himself as police arrived on the scene.

“We’ve got cops from all over the Twin Cities coming out here to maintain order because the citizens of Minneapolis and Hennepin County deserve to feel safe,” said Hennepin County Sheriff Dave Hutchinson. “The people causing problems are going to go to jail tonight.”

Minnesota Democrat Governor Tim Walz released a statement following the incident, saying that it was time for the city to heal and that lawlessness would not be tolerated.

“Minneapolis, it’s time to heal,” Walz said. “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.”

Minneapolis Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey responded to Walz’s statement by saying, “Thank you, Governor Walz, for your partnership and support. The unrest must stop and healing must start. Destruction will not be tolerated. Healing our city will require peace and all of us working together.”

“We need everyone to keep the peace and immediately go home,” Frey added.

 

The rioting and looting in Minneapolis come just a few months after violent riots broke out in the city in response to the death of George Floyd. Those riots spiraled out of control, causing hundreds of millions of dollars of damage, and were followed by subsequent riots in other Democrat-controlled cities across the U.S.

The most recent example of violent riots to hit the U.S. happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin, this week after a black man was shot by police officers who were reportedly responding to a domestic incident.

However, state authorities released a report on Wednesday afternoon stating that their investigation found that the suspect, who was shot after resisting law enforcement and attempting to enter his car, had a weapon on the floorboard of his vehicle.

“During the investigation following the initial incident, Mr. Blake admitted that he had a knife in his possession,” the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) said in a statement. “DCI agents recovered a knife from the driver’s side floorboard of Mr. Blake’s vehicle. A search of the vehicle located no additional weapons.”
