A massive crowd of Minneapolis rioters appear to have wholly taken over a precinct of the Minneapolis Police Department, going on to set the building wholly ablaze in an act of riotous destruction.
Minneapolis Police are refusing to enforce law and order, handing control of the streets to the racuous crowd to pillage and destroy. Footage from the city shows law enforcement retreating as the mob advances upon the police station.

‘Protestors’ can be seen freely throwing stones and projectiles at police officers, with violence appearing to be a tactic employed by a significant amount of the rioters.
500 Minnesota National Guard soldiers have been activated in order to restore law and order to the city, but it doesn’t appear the force has been organized within the city as of Thursday night, enabling the rioters to continue their spree of destruction.
Footage of the blaze raging at the Minneapolis Police Department’s third district building showed a fire that is serious in scale, easily posing a danger to those in surrounding structures and the rioters torching it. The blaze was first identified at around 10PM local time, with a crowd of rioters easily ranging in the hundreds surrounding the burning police station. The police had “evacuated” the station, surrendering the public building to the whims of the criminals.

Rioters are reportedly blocking Minneapolis firefighters access to the site in order to contain the blaze, even as it places the lives of community members at risk.
The riots started after the death of George Floyd, a black man who died during or following a highly questionable arrest in which a Minneapolis police officer was seen kneeling on his neck for an extended period. Rioters have taken advantage of the incidence to unleash a wave of destruction on the city, looting a Target, torching several buildings, and now outright destroying a police station.
Minnesota Governor Asking President Trump to Declare Riots a Federal Disaster In Hope of Receiving Bailout Funds
Weren’t they peaceful protestors?
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.
