When are they going to get arrested Both law enforcement admins. Federal and non-federal have laws that have been violated in the murder of Floyd . The video is evidence enough to arrest. The local & state have not made the arrests that are more than warranted: The Feds are sandbagging. BlackLivesMatter

The only buildings left standing will be Popeyes and colonel sanders. But MSNBC would say.... 😥😥 Guess has long has ya being setting stuff on fire and stealing stuff , all that mask and distance stuff dont matter Racist arrogance . . . White supremacist police are stoking potential racial firestorm may make them regret using badge to wield their racism. I'm old. I remember hot summer of 'burn baby burn' when major US cities went up in flames. Be very careful poking pandemic caged panther.

Why even rebuild that station? Just leave that area non-policed Do you have evidence it was the protesters who did it? St. Paul police officer was just outed as causing much damage in Minneapolis. So if an AfroAmerican makes any ATTEMPT to AVOID being CHOKED to DEATH by a police officer he's guilty of RESISTING ARREST? If George Floyd were white he'd still be alive!!! No wonder the people are so pissed! & if it had been a white guy that died there WOULD be arrests!

You mean that there’s a riot in Minneapolis but you’re just not allowed to say that You mean that there’s a riot in Minneapolis but you’re just not allowed to say that This probably was a dumb decision,they probably just destroyed further evidence in other cases of racism They are not protestors when they start setting fire to buildings, they become rioters. The lockdown protests were peaceful and you vilified them constantly!! LiberalismIsAMentalDisease

So, it was the workplace of those murderous cops. I think some angry people were sending a message: if you loot store, it's a riot. You torch a police station: it's a rebellion. Lesson: if the police don't obey the law, don't expect the people to follow it. So sad. Absolutely pathetic. Worthless human beings. Don’t deserve to be on the streets.

Good Ok. This is not good. Can't let mobs rule the streets no matter the justification. GeorgeFloydWasMurdered is like RodneyKing all over - does nothing ever change in the USA? The danger and inaffectiveness of todays briefing was that they sent bureaucratic technocrats to address a simmering passionate and emotional powderkag making this expected.

It's the 1992 LA (aka Rodney King) riots all over again. Fires, police retreating etc. Only worse because now its more than 1 city History always repeats itself when nothing changes. Remember Arab spring, same thing is happening 🤷‍♂️ That's not the protesters those are Trump's white supremacist friends trying to start a race war to postpone the election...martial law dictator Donald Adolf Trump

Where’s the military? They need to start eradicating the threats. Just so sad!! Just arreste the cops ,you had a video that show ,one did the killing and others didn’t do shit ashleyjb33 Catches fire? No... set on fire! Heard a radical say, 'Hmm, the Third Reich precinct is burning?' wiring? The Minn. police chief said the protesters were from outside Minnesota Russia has done things like that for decades There was a quarantine in Minnesota and riots in multiple cities Russia creates fake protests and sends people in them to start riots

Stunning development. Probably should have been expected. Minnesota standing up strong much love... Get ali velshi out of there!!!! This tragedy does not need to end with more violence on innocent people.
