Angry mobs of looters continue to run roughshod over police in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Thursday evening’s violence makes Wednesday’s orgy of looting, arson and violence look tame in comparison. Looters even set fire to the Minneapolis Police District 3 headquarters building at the epicenter of Wednesday’s violence.
Rumors have it that police have been pulled out of District 3. The fact that rioters have free reign over the area on Thursday evening seem to support those claims.
What’s more, rioters have set fire to the District 3 MPD headquarters with exactly zero resistance from from the police. And zero response from firefighters as well.
Indeed, all signs suggest that Minneapolis’ Mayor Jacob Frey has handcuffed his police. Surrendering a large, fairly new police facility to mobs of unchecked criminals only bolsters his soft-on-crime reputation. Far from satisfying the anarchists, it will only embolden them.
What’s more, locals have noticed the fact that police have remained largely hands-off both Wednesday and Thursday evening. The thin veneer of civilization has worn through to anarchy as scores of businesses are being looted in the city, one after another. Many are then set on fire and mobs of people are running through nearby residential neighborhoods.
One can almost count on a significant number of Minnesota residents – indeed Americans across the fruited plain – seeing these sights and deciding that they want to tool up. Yesterday. Yes, the 2020 run on guns is just warming up.

Hopefully, law and order will prevail in Minneapolis before more innocent lives are lost.
