More than 700 Buildings In Minneapolis Damaged, Burned or Destroyed In Floyd Riots

Senseless destruction of a community.

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.

The significant damages to the city of Minneapolis remain a dark cloud from which the city may not recover. As leftists continue in a serious proposal to abolish the city’s police department and a sizable contingent of the city’s population begins looking to move elsewhere, the city may face a future of decline and blight.

Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds

Weren’t they peaceful protestors?

Published

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is requesting that President Donald Trump declare the recent rounds of race riots in Minneapolis a federal emergency, so that the state may access federal bailout funds intended for communities affected by disasters.

Governor Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey largely stood by idly as race rioters destroyed and damaged more than 700 buildings in the riots, which occurred after the controversial death of George Floyd during a questionable arrest at the hands of the Minneapolis police department. The property damage from the widespread riots is estimated to range in the tens of millions, and Frey is already pushing a federal bailout to repair the damages enabled by his unwillingness to prevent criminality and support of the rioters’ “message.”

Governor Walz referenced the victims of the riots in a statement requesting the bailout, callously ignoring that the victims of the riots were not only victimized by criminal riots, but simply ignored in their hour of need by state and local officials unwilling to confront left-wing criminality in the name of “justice.”

We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover, demanded Governor Walz. We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.

The Governor’s estimate of property damage from the riots is considerably greater than what the mayor estimated, claiming that combined damages from the destruction could cost as much as $500 million.

In the new world of unabated criminality and violent destruction from vicious gangs in Democrat-controlled cities, Democrat officials will always be prepared to come cup in hand to American taxpayers with hopes of funding the repairs of the rioting that they enabled, allowed, and perhaps even tacitly supported. No responsibility or integrity.
