At least nine people were shot, and one killed, as racially charged violence erupted after the sun went down. Anarchy reigns supreme in Minneapolis as the bloodbath continued overnight into Friday morning. Police continue to do their jobs, for now, even though they are unwelcome in the community. They were already legally disbanded by the city council. Residents can’t wait for the armed police to be replaced with social workers, so they can shoot out their differences amongst themselves without fear of being murdered by the police for it.
A night of violence
Minneapolis, Minnesota, has reverted to 19th century frontier lawlessness. Demoralized police have no incentive to stop the random violence since they’re about to be replaced by social workers, yet they stay on the front-line anyway, trying their best to preserve some semblance of the rule of law.
As the sun came up Friday morning one 20-year-old man was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound. Eight other shooting victims were more fortunate. Police simply called it “another violent night in Minneapolis.” The lawless violence is expected to get a lot worse before it gets better. Liberals have no idea how to preserve the peace without cops but they promise they’re working real hard to figure it out. Meanwhile, they have anarchy.
The violence began right about sundown. Thursday evening, at 6:53 p.m., the night’s first gunshot report came in. “A 17-year-old boy was outside in the area of 25th Ave. North and Lyndale Ave. North. He was taken to North Memorial Hospital, and his condition is unknown.” It’s not even safe to simply walk outside.
An hour and a half later, “around 8:25 p.m., two men in their 20s were shot at the East Phillips Park basketball court, near 24th St. East and Cedar Ave. South.” Police are convinced the suspect “fled the area in a vehicle.” Both victims of Marxist violence were “taken to HCMC with non-life threatening injuries.” Instead of the O.K. Corral, modern gunslingers give new meaning to shooting hoops on the basketball court.
As the violence progressed through the night, around 9:30 p.m., someone called the under-appreciated police to maintain the peace after shots were fired near 21st Ave. North and 6th St. North. Instead of murdering the victim like Black Lives Matter insists they wanted to, they transported the man in his 40s with two non-life threatening gunshot wounds to the hospital.
The violence escalated and things really got busy when three separate calls came in from three different locations. police “received a ShotSpotter notification in the area of 29th St. East and Park Ave. South,” just after midnight. While they were checking it out, “they got a call about a man who had just arrived to HCMC with a gunshot wound.” The victim claims he was driving in the area and minding his own business when “someone drove up next to him and starting firing.”
Victims piling up
Victims started piling up at the local hospitals as the violence raged through the night. While units were at the 29th street scene, “police were heading to the area of 38th St. East and Chicago Ave. for a report of shots fired. The call was upgraded to a shooting as police were en route.” When they got there, police discovered a man in his mid-to-late 20s with a gunshot wound. As they were talking to him, “police were informed another male victim had arrived at Abbott Northwestern Hospital with a gunshot wound related to this incident.” Looks like that was a shootout.
The next report of violence “was a shooting with the possibility of multiple victims.” Responding to the 2900 block of N. 6th St., “police found the body of a man in his 20s and a woman in critical condition. She was taken to the hospital.”
