During a press conference on Thursday, Minneapolis Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins called for calm and peace and admonished rioters for hurting the “very communities that you say that you are standing up for.” On Wednesday, protests in Minneapolis turned ugly, as looting, violence, and arson erupted across the city, following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a police officer had his knee on the 46-year-old’s neck during an arrest, viral video shows.

Rioting never solved any problem. Demonstrations never solved any problems. Defining the problem and working together to solve that problem is the key to resolving issues. The police were in the wrong, only 4 police, not the entire police force or the entire police forces across the country. The police were fired, but that doesn't resolve the issues. There needs to be a review of the department to determine how widespread prejudice is in the department and rid the departments endemic 'don't rat or interfere with an office in an active arrest, interview or interrogation. The officers involved and the city will be sued. It is cheaper to keep the department clean. No amount of training will stop the actons these officers were in which these officer were involved.

These animals aren't protesting the death of someone, they view it as an opportunity to shop for free stuff. Notice on many of the videos, whites who were there to protest police brutality were up front with signs and chants, while blacks were breaking into Target and stealing tv's and everything they could get their hands on.

Minneapolis is a very liberal Democrat City and has been run by liberal Democrat politicians for a very longtime. In that respect the particular officer who used his knee on Floyd’s neck is said to have been involved in a good number of previous serious incidents and you have to wonder why the liberal Democrat politicians did not force that officer out if even one or two of those previous incidents were founded? Instead of looking into that, some Democrats are already blaming President Trump.

Voice of reason give me a break. Parroting Keith Ellison. Keith Elllison, AG: It is legitimate for community members to be outraged by George Floyd’s death. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I strongly encourage everyone who wishes to exercise their First Amendment rights to protest to do so safely: use social distancing and wear a mask. It is an act of care for yourselves and your community to do so.

When a man got out of his car on a crowded bridge between Kansas and Missouri and began shooting, Master Sergeant David Royer told his fiancée to call 911, hung up the phone, and ran over the gunman with his Chevy. Royer was driving on Centennial bridge Wednesday morning when a man jumped out of his car and began shooting indiscriminately at cars, the New York Times reported. Royer, who served in the army for 15 years, told reporters Thursday that “I was shocked that it was happening and the adrenaline took over and, with the military training that I’ve received, I took appropriate action and took out the threat.”

President Donald Trump will target Facebook and Twitter in an executive order on social media, according to a draft that appears to have leaked online. Kate Klonick, an assistant legal professor at St. John's University's School of Law, published what she said was a draft version of the executive order late on Wednesday. (You can read it here.) The Techdirt reporter Mike Masnick said he had received the same draft, and Reuters confirmed that it had seen a genuine draft.

Joe Biden hasn’t been thinking things through, though that’s a common theme. Just yesterday, he blamed the interviewer for his racist “you ain’t black” comment, if that gives you an idea of how things have been going lately. He was talking to CNN, so that meant no push back ensued. Meanwhile, in a public comment yesterday, Biden had this to say. See if you can spot the problem. (Snip) Biden today, per pooler @JTHVerhovek : " on the day I am officially elected, before I'm sworn in -- even though he'll probably contest we didn't win -- I'm going to immediately have to be on the phone with key European and Asian leaders to tell them America's back."

According to police, Bravo-Perez sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl by forcing her to have sex with him after contacting her through social media. Bravo-Perez has said he paid the underage girl $50 for sex.

The kerfuffle over how much authority the president has vis-à-vis state governors boiled over at a recent White House coronavirus briefing. Missing in the debate is the conundrum that became apparent in August 2005, during Hurricane Katrina. During a critical week, from two days before Katrina, to five days after, there arose a conflict the likes of which had never been seen in American disaster governance: an open clash between the president on one side and the Louisiana governor and the mayor of New Orleans on the other.

We need honest reckoning and reconciliation.” “If you haven’t already joined the work to replace him in November, start now,” she said. Ms. Clinton, who lost to Mr. Trump in the 2016 election, appeared to be alluding to Mr. Trump’s early-morning comments regarding the unrest in the wake of Floyd’s death.

So I asked them to help us engage with the constituents they have. We have 31 mayors off the bat. Many more joined on since then. We’re working in high schools because people who are first-time voters tend to be lifelong voters.

George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports. Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derick Chauvin saw at least 10 conduct complaints during his 19-year tenure before he was fired Tuesday, according

As the “official” tally of COVID-19 deaths tops 100,000 in the U.S., we keep hearing how that number is likely a low-ball estimate. But there’s far more evidence that the death count has been knowingly exaggerated – possibly by a very wide margin. A recent Seattle Times article pretty much lays out the charade going on. The headline reads: “Washington state’s actual coronavirus death toll may be higher than current tallies, health officials say.” But the story itself leads one to the exact opposite conclusion. Well down in the article, the reporter reveals that: “The rapid onslaught of this coronavirus forced

There’s a great deal to be upset about regarding the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers under color of authority, but it’s quite another thing for protesters to turn into rioters and steal stuff under cover of righteous indignation. That’s what happened in Minneapolis Wednesday night after Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced that four police officers involved in the stop on Sunday night were fired. Floyd died in custody Sunday night after getting stopped for forgery. Floyd was held down at his neck by an officer using his knee.

One might think that MSNBC might give Rev. Al Sharpton the day off when the hot topic is protesters burning down buildings. In 1995, Sharpton's protest against the "white interloper" who ran Freddy's Fashion Mart in Harlem led to a fire where seven people died of smoke inhalation (and the arsonist shot himself). Discussing the rioting in Minneapolis on today's Morning Joe, Al Sharpton began by telling protesters that the goal of a fair criminal justice system wouldn't be achieved by "appearing" to be criminal themselves. He warned that people would "exploit" that. A clearly upset Sharpton then said: "As I walked around Minneapolis yesterday . . .
