Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey held a press conference early Friday morning at City Hall. Around 1:30 a.m., Frey addressed a city that is enduring escalating protests that have lasted for the past three days in response to the death of George Floyd. Four Minneapolis Police officers were fired in the incident that happened Monday night. Thursday night's protests accelerated in violence in comparison to the previous two, with the Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct set on fire, where all the fired officers were from. During his address to media, Frey reflected on the bigger meaning of the protests. "Brick

Tolerating and justifying childish, destructive and disingenuous tantrums are not as important as life either.

I can't remember a weaker mayor of a city in this once great country. You cannot allow this kind if destruction. George Floyd did not deserve what happened to him, however, the city does not deserve what is happening to it right now.

Brick and mortar are the product of human labor. We are all blessed with a limited capacity for labor in our lives and to destroy or steal the products of our labors is to steal a part of our lives. That is the same crime and injustice as slavery. Those buildings may be symbols to you Mr. Frey but they are the labor of the common people who apparently you don't value. Is my freedom a mere symbol to you? I would so much love to discuss that with you, your choice, gloves or bare knuckles.

He should be arrested and thrown in jail for plagiarizing Ferguson and Baltimore Mayor's speeches on lawlessly allowing riots. When folks riot in liberal twons and cities, lawlessness is the norm. Additionally, if lives matter, why isn't Mayor Fried enforcing social distancing and proper face mask usage. Its clear from videos and pictures the peaceful protesters are not following strict stay at home orders, social distancing and proper face mask usage thus killing millions of people iwth Covid 19!

No.8, you beat me to it! It’s Baltimore revisited.There's this lefty mayor trying to rationalize his mistakes now and Twitter giving him cover. I am really angry over George Floyd's death, but I have absolutely no sympathy for the people in Minneapolis who voted for that commie mayor, who is really lost and doesn’t know what to do in this crisis but mouth off about racism instead of taking action against the rioters. Here’s his first real test and he’s failed! Minneapolis, you got what you voted for.

Minneapolis is a city that is run by very liberal Democrats for a very long time. Clearly the liberal Democrat Mayor and City Administration are backing off the rioters and are allowing the rioters to burn down a commercial area of the city. If the rioters decide to move to “kill Whitey” as some rioters signs there advocate, by perpetrating the unlawful riots in residential areas of the city there is going to a lot of death and destruction. Since The Mayor and city administration are so liberal you have to wonder why they have not taken action to bring any police officers who unlawfully abused their authorities there to justice long ago, as the particular police officer who put his knee on the Black man’s neck apparently causing his death, has apparently had over fifteen such complaints filed against him, some of them involving deaths, and is still on the police department? The Democrats fraudulently blaming President Trump for the out of control situation in Minneapolis is not a solution just more race baiting.

I am sure there are good people on both sides, but I have NO SYMPATHY for the TAKERS that voted in these leaders in Minneapolis & Minnesota. I do feel sorry for the MAKERS whose property is being destroyed. There will be increases in the TAM wars (TAKERS against MAKERS) in the future. Then the TAKERS will sit in their burned out neighborhoods and 'whine about whitey'. See Detroit Riots - 1967.

And this is why we have the problems that we do. They are both important. Yes, when we are handling our personal situations, we should be viewing people more important than assets whether it be money, physical property or what have you. But if you are in a government position to serve citizens, people, money, physical assets etc. should ALL be important to you, Mayor Frey. How irresponsible you are and it is disgusting.

They're protesters because it was a white on black crime and it fits the liberal narrative. Meanwhile, un-American rioters are assailing dem controlled statehouses, contrary to the liberal narrative. I guess it depends on who's ox is being gored, on how these things are perceived.

The mayor made the politically expedient decision to let the criminals destroy property. A much harder decision would be to declare a curfew, protect those businesses, and insist on meeting with the community leaders to assure them justice will be done. Mr. Floyd deserved that. The city deserved that. The people whose lives have been destroyed because of the out of control mayhem deserved better. You want chaos and mayhem elect a democrat and you will certainly get it. Leadership was needed here and this mayor failed spectacularly.

"Weakness is pointing the finger at someone else during a time of crisis. Donald J. Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis. We are strong as hell, and you better be damn sure we're going to get through this," Frey said, with a pounded fist on the podium. About the “We are as strong as hell” part; I need to see your demonstration of strength, Mr. Mayor......I’m waiting. Still waiting.

I don’t know the City of Minneapolis, but chances are the businesses and grocery stores that are being destroyed are located in a low income area, where a lot of Black folks and other minorities reside. When this is over the “community” will wake up, as has happened in the past in other inner city areas, and find that there are not any grocery stores and other critical businesses located in their the area where they reside. A lot of the destroyed businesses will think as to what is bound to occur if they rebuild there and then there is another riot sometime in the future? With that in mind look for the liberal Democrats to demand that the Federal Government effectively rebuild the area.

The video I saw of the white man breaking the glass windows of the AutoZone, dressed in complete black with a professional gas mask. His actions and the way he conducted himself after the action tells me he was a paid agent provocateur. He was followed by a couple of people trying to stop him and he just took a swing and walked off the battle ground. He broke those windows with no feeling at all, he walked quickly, with purpose, and then when finished, turned around and made a path to dodge cameras. THAT is the actions of a paid actor.

There is such a thing as a strategic retreat when a position cannot be defended, but that call has to be made or recommended by the commander in the field. The mayor made a value judgment that sent the wrong message to the rioters.

Civilization, with all it's bricks and mortar, IS life, you jackass. Actually, if anyone is to blame it's the propaganda and smear loving Democrat MSM. The police and National Guard should have moved quickly to stop this nonsense by dispelling rioters using force when needed and arresting everyone they could catch. Anyone with a shred of sense knows that. But since the MSM would have a field day portraying this as "totalitarian repression", idiot politicians make us all just sit back and watch.

As protests and unrest continued in Minneapolis following the killing of George Floyd, people are questioning the identity of a man filmed smashing windows. Footage emerged of the white man, dressed all in black, and in gloves and boots, calmly smashing the windows of an auto parts store with a large hammer. His face is obscured by an expensive-looking gas mask and he is also holding an open black umbrella — although it was not raining. Twitter quickly christened him 'Umbrella Man'. The strange choice of clothes for a warm day, combined with the high quality gas mask, raised suspicions. He

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK - U.S. President Donald Trump is trusted more than Democratic nominee Joe Biden to handle the economy, polls show, even with more than 40 million Americans filing jobless claims and growth stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Some Biden supporters fear that vulnerability could intensify if Trump becomes the face of an economic recovery as the country re-opens after shutdowns, giving the Republican president's re-election prospects a boost when he needs it most. Biden is expected to release a large-scale recovery plan in the coming weeks. Democrats are watching closely to see if his message matches the moment

The former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on the neck of George Floyd for eight minutes before he died was arrested Friday and charged by Hennepin County prosecutors with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Within hours, the Justice Department had also announced it was investigating Floyd's death and was looking into charges for possible federal civil rights violations. Both developments occurred unusually quickly for a case involving an on-duty police officer, legal experts told Insider on Friday. Now, the question has become how tightly prosecutors can button up their case against the officer, Derek Chauvin, and what will become of the

The killing by police of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis has aimed the national spotlight at systemic racism in America. It’s also added pressure on Joe Biden to pick an African-American running mate. George Floyd’s death after a police officer put his knee to Floyd’s neck while pinning him to the ground closely followed the killing of another black man, 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery, who was fatally shot while jogging in Georgia after a confrontation with two white men. Both incidents broke through the coronavirus pandemic to make headlines and capture national attention, while underscoring a growing sense that there

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.
