Minneapolis is preparing for the destruction of their city – again- as the Saint George Floyd trial is about to begin. I wonder if I’ll be able to see the fires from here?
The Minneapolis city government and local businesses are bracing for a new wave of violence as the officer accused of killing George Floyd faces a jury next week.
From now until the end of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s trial, swaths of the city’s downtown will be closed to traffic and strictly limited for pedestrians.
So you’re following President Asterisk’s lead and turning the city into occupied territory? Nice.
Businesses have begun boarding up windows in hopes of limiting further damage following last summer’s riots.
“You might want to consider adding physical barriers, such as boarding or permanent security gates,” Minneapolis Economic Policy and Development Director Erik Hansen suggested to local business owners at a recent news conference.
Wait a minute, I thought it was racist to board up businesses. It certainly was when the Saint George Floyd riots were in full swing.
The police promise a more proactive effort to quell social unrest this time around, pledging more officers to assist in arresting lawbreakers. Last week, the city council approved upward of $1.5 million for new security measures in an effort to minimize damage to both public and private property during Chauvin’s trial.
The police can make all the promises they like, but there is no way they will be allowed to keep the peace while the despicable city council hinders their every move. Hell, these clowns are still trying to defund the police. Honestly, the entire department should call out sick until the trial has concluded.
Let. It. Burn.
