The bulletin said there have been several social media posts calling for looting and civil disobedience as well as other acts of violence."Domestic extremists, including anarchist extremists and other anti-government extremists, are using the unrest in Minneapolis to amplify and justify their calls for dismantling law enforcement agencies and carrying out attacks on law enforcement, government, and capitalist targets," the bulletin said.

Walz said that the"looting and recklessness" that occurred was not caused by those who wanted justice for Floyd."We have to restore order to our society before we can start addressing the issues," the governor said, later calling one of the issues"fundamental institutional racism."

He said that he would not"patronize" the black community as a white man, but asked the community to"help us use a humane way to get the streets back to a place where we can restore justice."Walz started off his press conference by acknowledging generations of pain and anguish that communities of color in America have experienced. He said that those communities have not been truly heard,"much like we failed to hear George Floyd as he pleaded for his life, as the world watched, by the people sworn to protect him, his community, our state."

Ellison said that although people continue to ask when justice will be served, he believes authorities understand that"the wheels of justice must turn swiftly."He also said that while the investigation and criminal procedure for this case is important, it by no means addresses the root of these problems in this country.

They have only learned to appear as of they do, and still not very good at it. Does this mean JoeBiden is now pro-life and will protect children in their mothers womb. Otherwise, JoeBiden words are hollow and meaningless. They as just intended to win votes.

JoeBiden ...Have you forgotten about all of the riots that took place on your watch? Polls show that race relations worsened under the Obama/Biden administration. You had 8 years to fix it and you didn’t. bidenlies JusticeForGeorgeFlyod You are still not going to be elected,for 2020 Trump will win sip on that sir

We now know it's all political to help Biden get black voters thing is this we are not back in 60's or 50's North and South are not fighting a civil a war we all have rights no longer fighting for civil liberties in America

We need you in the white house sir. It shall come to pass come November Listen America, this is what a real president sounds like! when you are breaking the law i am guessing everyone has anxiety that they will get caught. You had 8 years. Your Administration exacerbated racism tension terribly. Same thing for Native Americans.

You never did it when you where VP what make you think your going to do it know Joe Biden created these issues morons! He’s been in government over 40 years!!!

This is not normal. Creep corrupt and demented. Says the man who did nothing for 40 years including 8 as vice president. But did this. Say whatever you want. Definitely more compassion than Trump. Compassion is a dreadful chore for Donald. Now That's a President!!!! Make America Great Again!!!!! I guess George Floyd was 'black enough' for JoeBiden

A lot of those protesters were your antifa boys..why just single out blacks ?Ha Joe.. Racist I’ll try my hardest locked in my basement. What did Obama/Biden do in their eight years. They did nothing to solve these issues.

You’ve had your chance when you were with your clean looking president . Actually lots of people live in fear of the police. I don’t like them at all. They are not your friends. Their single purpose in life is to destroy people and put them in jail.

This was Started during the Regime of YOU and the Kenyan Obama! Enjoy what you have Sown! What absolute bullshit. wow troops Who is he referring to when we says “we’ll?” I expected that, If they are smart they will stay home, it's called obeying the law, I hope and pray all the rioters stay home Oh that's real smart, make a law that's going to push people to create more conflict... 🤪

Uncle Joe looks trapped.. Be free man.. let out what you really wanna say big fella... This is america .. free speech. Dont let your handlers dictate your true feelings.. 🤣 Beware the White liberal who hides behind a smile. He’s more dangerous and cunning than any member of the KKK. Investigate the mayor, these were his cops.

How long has the black community been treated bad? Yeah the police are just getting brutal man, paranoid, intimidating, arrogant, offended... it's hard to deal with them... Unless you're a real hot chick, then the police are like super nice... 😘🙄 Did he fart again ? Who will be next? By the undisputed statistics, probably a WHITE person again. But nobody cares about them when killed by police.

Wtg Joe 👍 The guy who put 1000s of Blacks in prison is going to talk about Blacks folks constant anxiety and trauma. You cannot make this up. In our power? What fucking power do you have?

However violence protest is less effective than persistent, unrelenting civil disobedience. Don’t squander this opportunity. minneapolisriots GeorgeFloyd
