Numerous Minneapolis restaurants are suing Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey over the city’s vaccine mandate that went into effect on Wednesday.
The mandate, issued on January 14, requires that “everyone entering an establishment that serves food or drink in Minneapolis must show proof of either being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or having a negative PCR or antigen test taken within three days.”
Seven establishments have filed a joint lawsuit against Frey’s order, according to KMSP. The complaint was filed Thursday in Hennepin County Fourth Judicial Court.
The complaint, obtained by KMSP, states the order “is calculated and purposed to attempt to prod the general public toward vaccination.”
The lawsuit later reads in part:
48. Minneapolis bars and restaurants are being used as pawns to further Mayor Frey’s agenda of pushing for and convincing the public to get vaccinated. Whether the end being sought is noble, the scheme is forcing restaurants and bars to lose additional patrons and business that have already been reduced over the past two years and incur new costs and burdens to enforce the requirements of Emergency Regulation 2022—5.
49. These actions constitute misuse of mayoral power aimed to further at best long-term public health policy, and at minimum personal agenda item of Mayor Frey, and are certainly not the intent or purpose for which the emergency powers outlined in Minneapolis Code of Ordinances §§ 128.50 or 128.60 or Minn. Stat. 12.29.
One of the attorneys representing the plaintiffs, Francis Rondoni, spoke with KMSP regarding the lawsuit.
“Jacob Frey does not have the power to do what he did. You cannot just act by edict or fiat, as they say. There’s a legislative process that has to occur and he bypassed that,” Rondoni said.
Rondoni made clear to the outlet that his clients are not against vaccinations, adding they want to be treated the same as other Minneapolis businesses.
“To put bar owners in a situation where they are arguing with patrons about whether they can get in or not is also a safety issue,” Rondoni stated.
The plaintiffs include:
Bright Red Group, LLC (d/b/a Smack Shack), 90’s Minneapolis, LLC (d/b/a The Gay 90’s), PJ. Hafiz Club Management, Inc. (d/b/a Sneaky Pete’s), Urban entertainment, LLC (d/b/a Wild Greg’s Saloon), Urban Forage, LLC (d/b/a Urban Forage), and MikLin Enterprises, Inc. (d/b/a Jimmy John’s), Inc. (d/b/a Bunkers Music Bar 8t Grill)
Frey’s Office sent a statement to KMSP:
Mayor Frey’s approach is straightforward: keep our hospitals from being overwhelmed and keep our valuable small businesses open. That is precisely why he moved forward with this temporary and flexible approach in anticipation of the rising case numbers and hospitalizations. Doing nothing in the face of clear public health data was not an option.
“A hearing on a temporary restraining order is scheduled for Monday,” KMSP reports.
The case is Bright Red Group, LLC (d/b/a Smack Shack) v. City of Minneapolis, No. 27-CV-22-867, in District Court of Hennepin County, Minnesota.
I’m a patriotic American who believes America is the last best hope of humanity, and its survival is paramount to the freedom of people around the world. I voluntarily served in the U. S. Marine Corps, carrying on a family line of men who served in every branch of the military.
But living in Minneapolis, I had a front-row seat to the violence that occurred in the days and weeks following George Floyd’s death, just as I am now a witness to the devastation of my city from exploding violent crime and homicides in its aftermath.
It’s very hard for people like me who had their streets on fire for days, who still drive through a gutted, ash-heap of a city now riddled with crime and violence, to see Jan. 6 as anything more than a mob gone wrong. Where are the lasting scars like I see in Minneapolis? Where was the breathless 24/7 news coverage of that city? And while some of those at the Capitol have been held in solitary confinement for months, vandals and arsonists in Minneapolis were bailed out by groups supported by our vice president.
One year later, Washington appears unscathed, spared from any real, lasting damage.
As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 Select Committee plans its colonoscopy-like partisan investigation, few have been held to account for the violent riots that laid waste to a once vibrant, dynamic Minneapolis and many other cities. According to the Major Cities Chiefs Association report in 2020, an estimated 574 violent riots took place in the weeks after Minneapolis burned, resulting in damage of up to $2 billion.
Pelosi made sure the capital was locked down and surrounded by the National Guard and coils of concertina wire, city leaders and governors left citizens at the mercy of thugs hurling Molotov cocktails, helpless as their homes and businesses burned to the ground.
America’s preeminent revisionist historian Nikole Hannah-Jones perfectly encapsulated the elitist mentality in a June 2020 CBS interview: “Violence is when an agent of the state kneels on a man’s neck until all of the life is leached out of his body. Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence.”
For the left, Jan. 6 merits a condemnation of a whole political party as domestic terrorists, deserving the full weight of the federal government as punishment. For the 2020 rioters, a reckoning is reserved for average Americans who were unaware of their support for systemic racism merely by not being explicitly anti-racist.
Crime Rates Up
Leftist politicians and activists vilified law enforcement officers, campaigned to defund police departments, and worked to install far-left district attorneys more interested in using their positions to run social justice experiments than pursue law and order. As a result, police departments are suffering from mass attrition, leaving cities vulnerable to record-breaking violence, homicides, and carjackings.
Minneapolis violence increased on every metric, with homicides tying the city’s record set in 1995, while capital city St. Paul broke its homicide record, set in 1992. Leaders of these cities and those in the federal government continue to stand by with their private security as underserved communities are collapsing under the weight of fear and violence.
Clearly, lawmakers and the media think themselves and their safety are more valuable than the people they are supposed to work for and represent. There is a great divide between those with the luxury of marinating in self-pity and the rest of us trying to rebuild our livelihoods and avoid the very real violence we are faced with every day as body counts rise across the country.
Media and Political Elites out of Touch
In his Tuesday op-ed, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson wrote, “What happened last Jan. 6 was much bigger and more important than politics.” Of course it was, because it was about the elitist political and corporate media establishment. They continue to inflate the severity and lasting effects of the Jan. 6 riot because they have an outsized idea of their own influence and importance. The disparity of concern and reaction is telling: when their lives are inconvenienced, it’s a national disaster; when our lives are destroyed, they hand us a shovel.
Any suggestion of a threat to America’s credentialed class is presented as an affront to democracy and a sin equal to the worst treason in our nation’s history. Meanwhile, the destruction of dozens of cities and thousands of lives in middle America has been accepted as a necessary airing of grievances, a reactionary event in the name of social justice that inflicted pain on those who probably deserved it anyway.
It is an iteration of the divide between those who see themselves as rulers and the people over which they rule. It extends from the leftist media that needs to perpetuate democracy’s threat to fight off the ratings implosion since President Trump left office, to sanctimonious politicians who view the public as nothing more than the masked, faceless unwashed who should be grateful that the 2020 riots exposed their racist ways and now can correct them.
“Insurrection,” “violent coup,” and “domestic terrorism,” are terms they use when describing Jan. 6. Contrast that to the media’s coverage of the violent riots, even as fires burned uncontrolled in the background of their live-shots — terms like “social unrest,” “demonstrations,” and “mostly peaceful protests.”
Our lawmakers are just as shameless in airing their trauma and reminding the country how close they were to their impending doom, even though some weren’t even in the same building. Pelosi announced a candlelight vigil on the steps of the Capitol along with a panel of congressmen and historians to “establish and preserve the narrative of January 6th.”
Our elite politicians never miss an opportunity to indulge their already oversized egos by equating their personal well-being with that of the very existence of our nation.

Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle opened the interview asking Davis about Minneapolis’s recent vote to reject a measure that would have defunded the police.
“There was an assumption that because [Ilhan Omar] backed it, and because Keith Ellison backed it and promoted it, that it would go through. And so I think there was a complacency there, but the people stood up,” she said. “Just to remind the people, my district is 63% liberal, and so this is the significance of them voting against, at 57% of the voters, voted against saying they wanted more police presence, not less.”
“And so the reality is, is that progressives have been using this public safety reform as a Trojan horse for the radical transformation of America and the Minneapolis people stood up and said, ‘no’, and that to me is absolutely shocking.”
Boyle noted that Minnesota’s fifth congressional district has been a Democrat stronghold for nearly 50 years and asked Davis about her plan to flip the district red.
“And so the way to beat her is right now I would need to ride this wave. Again, what happened on election Tuesday so that common sense is finally starting to kick in. I’m having conversations in liberal living rooms is what I’m calling my tour right now,” she said.
“And what they’re telling me is that you know what, we don’t feel that she actually cares about what we care about those kitchen table issues. What’s costing more at the gas tank, putting money in the gas tank, what’s costing more to buy groceries, you’re getting less than your paycheck, which means that we have to take away from you know, electives like taekwondo fees and piano lessons and sports and things like that.”
Davis mentioned that creating a “permission structure” is crucial for her plan to defeat Omar. “So right now, the way to win this is to just create a permission structure for liberals. And what I mean by that is this, you know, we I speak to liberals and I say, You know what, here’s the deal. Are you getting what you thought you’re going to get?” she said. “Create a creative permission structure where they can say, ‘you know what? We voted for her. We thought we were getting one thing. We’re getting something altogether different.’”
“I think if I can build a relationship, rapport and trust, I think I can go to the ballot box and check in (R) this time, because we need to get money back in our pockets and we need to feel safe in this district,” she continued.
Boyle mentioned Omar’s radical history as a champion of defunding the police and also touched on her “some people do something” quote regarding the September 11 terrorist attacks.
“She’s for defunding of police in Minneapolis. She’s also for defunding the Iron Dome in Israel. She clearly has a problem with her constituents and our allies and protecting themselves,” she said. Davis also criticized Omar for the way she stifles litigation in Congress. “Omar loves to hold hostages. She led the squad in voting against the infrastructure bill because the even more expensive, bankrupt America Act didn’t pass first.”
Davis also called out Omar for pushing an anti-Semitic agenda. “She’s not at all listening or bowing to the will of her constituents in this district. I’m stepping up to hold her to accountable. I apologetically stand with our allies in Israel, and I’m standing up against the anti-semitism agenda that’s going on in this country.”
As the interview continued, Davis touched on her background growing up in the deep blue state of Minnesota. Her entire family is liberal, and Davis even voted for Barack Obama in 2008. However, his poor performance as president made her realize the conservative values within her.
“I realized once he got in, what he was saying and what he actually was doing, didn’t line up with my values. Did not vote for him the second time, then became very active with my conservative values, supporting local candidates.” Davis highlighted her service as chair of her Senate district in Minneapolis and Minnesota BLEXIT leader.
Davis said the riots in her state last year caused her to run for a congressional seat. “I turned that mirror in front of me and just said, ‘hey, it’s got to be you.’ So I just decided to take that plunge and to be a champion for my district and for our country, we have to defend our constitutional republic.”
Boyle next asked if Davis, as a black woman, noticed an uptick in Republican support amongst black voters in her district. “There are open ears and I’ll tell you something: 30% of black men in Minnesota actually voted for Trump last election cycle. So that’s something I’m definitely taking advantage of to get them to help me move that needle,” she said. However, she quickly pointed out the disservice local black leaders are doing by parroting Democrat talking points.
“Although black leaders in Minneapolis were against defunding the police, they’re still bringing white supremacy and when you have pastors leading their congregation in that notion, it’s been very difficult to break that monolith,” Davis said.
Boyle then asked Davis about her plan to convince lifelong Democrat voters to support her in the election.
“So the way that I approach is to just simply ask a question, they have to understand that I’m not there to debate,” she said. “I start out by saying, ‘what are you interested in? And how is your life better?’ And what that does is it opens up conversation and so it really forces people to be honest.”
“And once I find that out, I find out that we have a lot of things in common and we’re all interested in a really basic, basic life necessities. You know, our children’s future education, public safety, you know, wanting to have a financial future so we can enjoy some of life lessons. We want a robust Minneapolis back.”
As the interview ended, Davis made her final pitch to voters within her district. “We need someone who can come in and kind of calm things down and be a real champion for this district. But leave people to where, you know, there’s common sense and there is a way that we can work together, stand shoulder to shoulder and really represent and change the narrative for Minnesota.”

The far-left progressives of Minneapolis suffered a major defeat on Tuesday night when the city overwhelmingly voted “No” on a measure that would abolish the police department — a measure that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) supported.
With 130 of 136 precincts reporting, the voters of Minneapolis voted against Question 2 by 57 percent, 76,820 votes versus 59,196 votes in favor. Aiming to be the most extreme anti-police measure to pass in the United States, the amendment would have had the city charter “remove the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a Department of Public Safety,” according to Fox 9. The amendment would also have eliminated the position of police chief as well as the minimum police staffing requirement.
According to Ballotpedia, the Department of Public Safety (DPS) would have dramatically altered law enforcement in Minneapolis, removing the police department’s minimum funding requirement in a city that has seen a 286 percent increase in carjackings since 2020:
Question 2 would have replaced the Minneapolis Police Department with a new Department of Public Safety (DPS). The DPS would be responsible for “a comprehensive public health approach to safety,” including the employment of licensed police officers if needed to fulfill the department’s responsibilities. A Commissioner of Public Safety would have led the DPS and would have been nominated by the mayor and approved by the city council. The ballot initiative would have also provided for the fire police to be housed with the DPS. Question 2 would have removed the minimum funding requirement for police (0.0017 per resident) from the Minneapolis Charter.
Though Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey opposed the measure, it received enthusiastic support from none other than squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Pop star Lizzo also endorsed the measure.
I am voting NO! on Charter Amendment Question 1, YES! on Question 2, and YES! on Question 3!
This year the residents of Mpls have asked for and can take that first step of action on the ballot. As a resident of Mpls where George Floyd’s murder sparked a national call for real reform, I will vote Yes for greater public safety & more human rights for all. #Yes4Minneapolis
The Yes 4 Minneapolis campaign received up to $2.97 million in donations, including $650,000 from the George Soros Open Society Policy Center. Conversely, All of Mpls, the PAC opposed to the measure, received just $1.59 million. Though Gov. Tim Walz (D), and U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) publicly opposed the measure, as the vote loomed closer, they refused to openly campaign against it, according to the Star Tribune.
“They would just as soon not get involved in Minneapolis politics and be out front on an issue that’s, no matter what position they take, guaranteed to upset some of their supporters,” said Kathryn Pearson, a University of Minnesota political science professor. “If they were to be actively campaigning, it would also really highlight the divide within the Democratic Party.”
Klobuchar later clarified that she had not been asked to campaign against the measure. “The police chief cannot report to a dozen bosses and I have made my opposition to this amendment clear from the beginning,” she said.
COVID-19 vaccine mandates have sparked nationwide controversy and led to firings and resignations around the country. Police officers have been hit hard by the requirements, and their exodus may leave many cities understaffed even on the heels of a spike in violent crime.
In New York City, officers passed the mayor’s deadline for vaccination Friday. The city announced that there are 26,000 unvaccinated municipal workers, including 17% of police officers. Those who refuse to comply will be placed on unpaid leave beginning Monday.
But New York City is far from the only local government to take that route. Several municipalities have instituted vaccine mandates for police officers only to see a significant drop-off in staffing.
Chicago, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and Seattle police departments have all grappled over this issue as well. In some areas, like Denver, data suggest that many officers who fought the mandate were in the end unwilling to resign over it. However, in other areas, police departments around the country have lost many officers due to the mandate.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva grabbed headlines earlier this month after announcing he would not enforce the vaccine mandate on his staff, putting local leaders in a tough position. Last week, he called the mandate an “imminent threat to public safety.”
“The Board’s vaccination mandate is causing a mass exodus within the Department, which is an absolutely absurd result,” Villaneuva said. “I have repeatedly stated the dangers to public safety when 20%-30% of my workforce is no longer available to provide service, and those dangers are quickly becoming a reality. We are experiencing an increase in unscheduled retirements, worker compensation claims, employees quitting, and a reduction in qualified applicants. As a result, homicide rates will continue to rise, response times will increase, solve rates will diminish, arrests will decline, patrol services will significantly decline, and patrol stations will close.”
In Massachusetts, the State Police Association of Massachusetts (SPAM) lost a legal battle in September challenging the state’s vaccine mandate, forcing many law enforcement officers out.
“The State Police are already critically short staffed and acknowledged this by the unprecedented moves which took troopers from specialty units that investigate homicides, terrorism, computer crimes, arsons, gangs, narcotics, and human trafficking, and returned them to uniformed patrol,” SPAM said in the statement.
The Seattle police department lost a few officers and has many more waiting to see if they can receive an exemption to the mandate.
“As of midnight, all but six Seattle Police Department employees have submitted their COVID-19 vaccination forms or are involved in an accommodation process, per city mandate,” SPD said in mid-October. “For those six employees, the separation process has begun. Meanwhile, 103 sworn and civilian SPD employees submitted requests for either a medical or religious exemption. While away from work, those employees will be using their own accrued time balances. The decision on when and whether they will be allowed to return to work will be determined in the coming weeks.”
Many of the officers leaving departments plan to head to more flexible employers.
“To date, dozens of troopers have already submitted their resignation paperwork, some of whom plan to return to other departments offering reasonable alternatives such as mask wearing and regular testing,” SPAM said.
Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has capitalized politically on the issue, publicly calling on ousted officers from around the nation to move to Florida.
“NYPD, Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we’ll treat you better here: You fill important needs for us, and we’ll compensate you as a result,” DeSantis told Fox News.
Mandates combined with growing friction between police and local governments over “defund the police” movements and other anti-police sentiments already had officers on edge. Now, many police groups have pushed back against the vaccine mandates, but have failed to sway several of the nation’s larger municipalities.
“The mandate-first, last, and only approach for law enforcement belies the public trust imbued on officers to make difficult, sometimes life and death decisions every day,” said Jason Johnson, president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund. “They are asked to quickly assess complex situations, apply their discretion, and act decisively and fairly — to uphold the law and protect the public. The men and women who put their lives on the line for others and take on this immense responsibility are now being told their leaders have no faith in their judgement.”
Meanwhile, the nation saw a spike in violent crime last year, according to FBI data released in September.
Homicides rose nearly 30% in 2020, and aggravated assaults increased by more than 12%. That marked the first time in four years violent crime rose from the previous year.
There were roughly 21,500 reported murders in 2020, the highest figure in decades.
“In 2020, there were an estimated 1,277,696 violent crimes,” the FBI said. “When compared with the estimates from 2019, the estimated number of robbery offenses fell 9.3 percent and the estimated volume of rape (revised definition) offenses decreased 12.0 percent. The estimated number of aggravated assault offenses rose 12.1 percent, and the volume of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses increased 29.4 percent.”
Last weekend, Chicago saw a 220% increase in downtown shootings, raising more concerns about the need for police.
“But don’t worry, [Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot] thinks the best way to solve this serious problem of increased downtown shootings is by stripping and removing cops from the street,” said Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 7, a local police union chapter.

If burning down a police station isn’t “revolting against civil authority,” what is? Insurrection is defined as “an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government.” Minneapolis, Minnesota, is generally considered an established government. The chairman of the state’s Democratic Party calls arson and looting acts of “pure righteousness,” because “the cops started it.” How dare they keep arresting and killing violent Black criminals?
A burning issue
Cops say they kill criminals because they are violent and dangerous. Democrats say cops kill criminals because they are Black. Cops can’t help it if a disproportionate number of violent criminals who resist arrest and shoot at police officers are Black. The cops shoot White violent criminals too, and they would shoot more, if there were more of them.
Meanwhile, residents of Minnesota have started considering vigilante justice, since the locals keep burning the place down while all the police are allowed to do are stand around and roast marshmallows.
On August 2, Devin Hogan, who serves as the official chairman of the Minneapolis Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, wrote a piece of liberal insanity he considers an “essay on Southside Pride.” The title he gave it is “The Cops Started It.” Burning down the cop shop, he writes, was a “revolutionary” moment.
The Imperial Palace still refuses to call it insurrection. Only deplorable supporters of Donald Trump can do that. “Like it or not, setting the Third Precinct on fire was a genuine revolutionary moment. An act of pure righteousness to open new worlds of understanding. The people declared themselves ungovernable and unilaterally took their power back.” Marvin Heemeyer said that too, with a bulldozer.
A “state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority” used to be called “anarchy.” Burning down police precincts was frowned on back in the good old days when America was great.
According to the state’s official top Democrat, “The enemies of this agenda, the powers that hold up white supremacy, are organized. They will no longer tolerate the great embarrassment of having lost control. They want the people to forget what it felt like to seize their power back.”
Manufacturing media consent
The whole idea behind burning down police stations is “counterinsurgency and genuine conspiracy.” They need help from the networks “manufacturing consent in the media by activating lizard brain emotions that distract from the issues.” The way Democrats see the events of the day the third precinct went up in flames, Target had the protesters wound up.
They weren’t allowed in to loot and pillage so they broke in to loot and pillage, then they torched the donut warehouse called a police station. “The Target across the street wouldn’t let protesters into the store to purchase poster board and markers to make signs. It got looted. Brand new flatscreen TVs and other detritus were used to build more barricades. At this point the world was paying attention.”
The cops started it, Hogan insists. “They killed George Floyd and took every opportunity to escalate, agitate and make things worse. The cops are rioting and the people are responding.”
Responding by burning down half the state, starting with the police station in Minneapolis they considered most offensive. “The largest international human rights movement in modern history had begun. The youth of Minneapolis carried all of this. The cops started it.”
Hogan describes himself as a “neighborhood activist with the privilege and fortune of a diverse career in public, private, and non-profit development spanning this country and the world.”
Along with endorsing the burning of police stations, he posted on Facebook, if “antiracism offends your sensibilities then please use this moment to examine the role you play in maintaining and upholding these systems. Which side are you on?” Those sides have already been chosen. Welcome to the thrilling days of yesteryear with frontier justice at the end of a rope or by whoever has the fastest draw.
This Black rage blockbuster won’t be seen on the big screen but it’s already a top viewed video on Facebook. Armed Antifa® occupation zones, kidnapping and extortion, documents signed under duress. No this isn’t the trailer for a new Hollywood extravaganza. This real life drama unfolded in Minneapolis over the weekend.
Black extortion is okay
One would think that the nation’s first openly transgender person of color elected to public office would be welcomed with open arms at the local Taking Back Pride march. Minneapolis City Council member Andrea Jenkins was totally surprised when the crowd wouldn’t let her leave.
On Sunday, June 27, “extreme” factions of the local Black Lives Matter™ militia kidnapped her against her will for over two hours until she broke down and signed their demands, under duress. Among other things, she was forced to agree to “dropping charges against alleged rioters.”
Ms. Jenkins was born a melanized male but that didn’t work out. After the pride march ended, she was sitting in the passenger seat of a sedan “when the enraged mob accosted her.” They were demanding “an end to police at Pride festivals” and “the protection of Black transgender residents” like the one they were attacking. They won’t be happy until the local community has “control over police.”
The kidnapping and extortion were broadcast live from Loring Park. The Imperial Palace has firmly declared that no matter what the legal definition of “insurrection” is, this wasn’t one of those. Only deplorable Trump supporters can do that.
DJ Hooker, is an outspoken Black Lives Matter™ captain in charge of the Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar brigade. He personally narrates “the 23-minute long footage.” Jenkins will think twice about attending the next rally.
Hooker informs the audience that Jenkins arrived at the event “for a photo op,” before she was kidnapped. “Her friend or partner has called the cops on us already,” Hooker chuckles. With a howling mob of anarchists holding her prisoner, all the council member could say was “Like this ain’t f—in’ white supremacy right here. I can’t believe this.”
Police don’t care
The police in Minneapolis don’t have the funding to go rescue city council members from Black Lives Matter™ controlled territory. “police cars drove by ‘every once in awhile’ during the two full hours Jenkins was blocked, but never stopped.” A spokes unit for the MPD, John Elder, sent the press an email explaining “Loring Park is not our jurisdiction. It is the oversight of the Minneapolis Park Police.”
Jenkins’ driver was really feeling uncomfortable. “We ain’t asking no more. We’re not asking no more, white lady. We’re demanding at this point. We’re not asking,” one freaky female warned. “We’re done asking. F—ing sh*t. We’re demanding it now. So why don’t you just sit back in your little seat and do your job and drive?” The driver must have had a death wish and flashed the bad-finger.
That’s about when Jenkins caved in and signed the demands. “We got her!” someone yells.” The “People’s Demands” were listed as six separate bullet points.
The Black mob requires “that a Community Police Accountability Commission (CPAC) is established, that all murder cases are reopened, that all charges against protesters are dropped, for more information regarding Winston Smith’s police shooting death, for Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s immediate resignation, and that George Floyd Square is left alone.”
The local residents and merchants have been trying hard to get “George Floyd Square” open and back to normal again. Black Lives Matter™ won’t stand for that. “A group called Meet on the Street has controlled the four-block autonomous zone since Floyd’s death, when barricades were erected around the site.”
“The activists, who have refused to evacuate—even after former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin’s verdict—have negotiated with the city over several two dozen demands, including a $159 million investment into the neighborhood over one decade.” That’s not insurrection either. Jenkins squared her shoulders and held her head high. “Fine, I’ll leave George Floyd Square alone and not do my job,” even though it might mean “a national monument will not happen.” So there!
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was sentenced today to 22½ years in prison after being found guilty in the 2020 murder of George Floyd. (Story Here) Prior to the sentencing Derek Chauvin made a brief, and seemingly cryptic, statement.
