Charred Corpse Found in the Ruins of Minneapolis Pawn Shop Destroyed in George Floyd Riots
Two months after the building was burned during the George Floyd riots in Minneapolis, Minn., a charred body has been found in the wreckage of a pawn shop.
Investigators reportedly received a tip to search the Max It Pawn store on East Lake Street in south Minneapolis for the body, according to law enforcement spokesman John Elder.
“The body appears to have suffered thermal injury and we do have somebody charged with setting fire to that place,” Elder said to the Star Tribune.
Further investigation will be needed to determine the exact cause of death, but police believe he likely died in the May 28 blaze that destroyed the pawn shop. Montez Terrill Lee, 25, of Rochester, Minn., has been hit with federal arson charges for his alleged role in starting the blaze. It remains to be seen if he will receive additional charges because of the body found in the pawn shop.
Big League Politics has reported on how over 700 buildings were damaged during the Floyd riots that saw the Black Lives Matter terror movement flex its nationwide muscle:
A citywide survey conducted by the city of Minneapolis reveals that more than 700 buildings were either damaged, burned, or wholly destroyed in the riots that swept over the city following the death of George Floyd at the end of May.
A high resolution map reveals the location of every building damaged in the race riots. The destruction is spread widely throughout the city, although it’s most concentrated on Lake Street in the city’s downtown. Twelve buildings have been described as totally destroyed in the city’s report.
City authorities previously determined that more than $55 million in property damages had been inflicted upon the city through the riots. Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey has floated the idea of asking for a federal bailout to repair the damages from the riots, although it’s considered unlikely he’d succeed, having largely allowed the damages to occur when he failed to order a decisive police response to the riots.
Erik Hansen, director of economic policy and development for the city, highlighted the damages inflicted upon the community through the riots in a city report.
“This is not just the structures that have been impacted, it’s the community that’s been impacted, and if you take a look at where the destruction has happened, some of it is not because of the uprising, some of it is because people came into the community and tried to terrorize some neighborhoods and set buildings on fire.”
While the fake news paints these protests as “mostly peaceful,” nothing could be further from the truth. Several have already died, and many more will follow unless this marxist revolution is stopped.
