A wave of violence appears to have swept over downtown Minneapolis, with reports of a mass shooting in which at least ten people were shot emerging from the city early Sunday morning.
Eyewitness accounts claim that either seven or eight individuals were shot at the intersection of Lagoon and Hennepin Ave. A livestream at the scene from a local Christian pastor and peace activist showed mayhem at the scene, with community members applying improvised medical assistance to the shooting victims while waiting for ambulances to arrive.
Kay Wilson tells a 911 dispatcher that multiple ambulances will be required to treat the wounded on his Facebook livestream.
Wilson describes the shooting. “This is not the place to be… We all had to duck and run for cover. When the shots rang out, I could hear the bullets whistling past my head… To God be the glory I didn’t get hit, for some young people got hit out here tonight.”
A report on a community app claims that a hundred people were seen fighting one another with various melee weapons near the scene of the shooting, in a possibly related incident.
Another report on the same app suggests that police, who still exist in the city despite the Minneapolis City Council announcing their intent to abolish the city’s police department, are currently pursuing a suspect, who has been identified as a black male.
As Minneapolis reels from a series of race riots that have damaged more than seven hundred buildings in the community, it appears the community is unfortunately facing the tragedy of a mass shooting.
The Minneapolis Police have announced that ten people are being treated for gunshot wounds at area hospitals as a result of the mass shooting.
** SHOOTING UPDATE **
10 people at area hospitals suffering from gunshot wounds. All are alive with various severity levels of injuries.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
