The Majority of Rioters Arrested in Minneapolis Have Local Addresses
According to a Fox 9 report, the majority of people arrested during the Minneapolis riots have Minnesota addresses.
The online Hennepin County Jail log confirms this.
Fox 9 noted that “of the 45 people arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly, stolen property, burglary or robbery on May 29 and May 30 so far, 38 had Minnesota addresses, according to publicly available jail records reviewed by FOX 9.”
Six of the individuals had out-of-state addresses, and one person didn’t have address information available.
City and state officials have insisted during the past few days that most of the rioters came from out of state. Governor Tim Walz declared on the morning of May 30, 2020 that up to 80 percent of the people were outsiders.
The 45 people that FOX 9 reviewed were arrested by Minneapolis Police, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, University of Minnesota Police, or Minnesota State Patrol.
The jail roster can be viewed online.
On May 30, Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder, claimed that sometimes people arrested will give false information. He asserted that background checks are indicating that some people who were arrested have records from other areas.
However, St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter is reversing course after saying that 100 percent of the people arrested for rioting in the city came from out of state.
Three-fourths of the people arrested in St. Paul had Minnesota addresses, according to law enforcement data.
Fox 9 concluded that “Of the 18 total arrests, 12 had Minnesota addresses, four were from out of state, and two were unknown.”
It’s clear that outside forces are not at work here and domestic criminals are the ones responsible for the chaos in the Twin Cities.
