The tide started turning in Minneapolis, Minnesota Wednesday night after officials made it crystal clear that law enforcement isn’t going to be playing around any longer and actually arrested dozens of looters. The myth of “peaceful demonstrations” has been shattered by all the senseless anarchy triggered by the drop of a hat. It proves that this isn’t a protest movement, its an army that marches to the command of Deep State commanders through a network of professional agitators and social media manipulation of the masses.
Troopers and @mndnr conservation officers arrested 33 people last night in #Minneapolis while working to restore order and clear businesses of looters. Troopers arrested 28 people, the @mndnr arrested five. @MinneapolisPD will have overall arrest totals.

Actual enforcement of the laws
The sane residents of Minnesota were terrified when yet another round of riots broke out Wednesday night. As it began, the heavily outnumbered police were forced to stand back and watch, as usual. The timing couldn’t have been planned any better. While Vice President Mike Pence started delivering his speech about the need to restore law and order, which is something that the American public can only trust President Donald Trump to do, the networks were forced to split the screen to live shots of businesses, as they were violently looted live in real time with real Black Lives Matter arsonists setting real fires. Democrat City and State officials were forced, by the stark truth going out to millions of Americans, to provide some real enforcement of the law.
Even after they gave law enforcement officers the green light to start making arrests, not much happened. Reinforced by Minneapolis State Patrol, troopers and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officers, they made their presence known and spent a few hours doing reconnaissance by tearing through the streets in Humvees and unmarked vans. They had to wait for the National Guard to get established before they could accomplish much. Several blocks were virtually destroyed by morning but they managed to arrest 33 people, “while working to restore order and clear businesses of looters.” It’s a start. Insurance company executives are shaking their heads in disgust and planning to sue the city to recover the damages inflicted by the out of control mob.

The Minnesota State Patrol didn’t have a lot to say in their preliminary report of the night’s law enforcement activities and a more detailed one is expected sometime Thursday. Late last night, Mayor Jacob Frey and Police Chief Medaria Arradondo took to the airwaves trying to restore calm to the community by explaining the incident which started the riot wasn’t even a police shooting. It was a suicide. The cause really doesn’t matter because its obvious that the mob is on a hair trigger, hyped up by Black Lives Matter madness.
Calm on Thursday morning
The scene in downtown Minneapolis was described as “calm” Thursday morning as residents started to clean up the damage from another riot. What they learned last night is that allowing law enforcement officers to do their jobs and getting the laws enforced are two entirely different things. They had the power to stop the madness but not the resources and were forced to let dozens of businesses be destroyed as random gunfire was sporadically reported. All triggered by misinformation.
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.

While law enforcement “imposed a curfew,” the rioters ignored it and continued to break windows and steal merchandise all through the evening. The looting was conveniently focused on the Nicollet Mall, described as “a pedestrian plaza that runs the length of downtown.” The Target store had a popular 100 percent off sale. When looters got thirsty from stealing all the merchandise they could carry, they set a popular British pub on fire.”
Governor Tim Walz put down his fiddle long enough to face the camera and admit, “We once again see the unrest on our streets. And not just Minnesota but as a nation, this pain continues on.” As he spoke, graphics depicted “people grabbing merchandise at a Saks OFF 5TH store, and broken windows and shrimp scattered on the sidewalk outside Ruth’s Chris Steak House.”
One law enforcement officer wounded
One law enforcement officer was wounded in the riots, “hospitalized with a non-life threatening injury.” Minneapolis Fire Department said it responded to four fires late Wednesday and early Thursday, including one at Brits Pub on the Nicollet Mall, plus three businesses in south Minneapolis, a Tires Plus, a Walgreens and a China Wok restaurant.
What is going on in Downtown Minneapolis tonight is unacceptable! @MayorFrey @GovTimWalz are you going to let our city burn for a second time this year? You both should resign now. You’ve destroyed our state. Do you have no shame or ability to admit your failures?

Black residents have been on a razors edge ever since the death of George Floyd in May at the hands of law enforcement officers. One thing that everyone can agree on is that the incident should never have happened. It also looks suspiciously pre-arranged to spark exactly the chaos and confusion we have been seeing for the past two months. What originally had legitimate protest and demonstration credibility has been replaced by something much more sinister.
Outside agitators have Blacks and their supporters ready to jump out on the street, armed with improvised weapons and armor to cause maximum destruction and mayhem at the tap of a tweet. Last night they jumped the gun. With Mike Pence standing in front of millions and declaring the need to enforce our laws, chaos breaks out right on cue. A similar incident ALMOST happened in Phoenix, Arizona too. The difference there was that once law enforcement was warned of the impending riot, they firmly declared their intention to enforce law and order. Instead of causing millions of dollars worth of damage to the neighborhood John McCain’s family lives in, Black Lives Matter backed down and went home.
