Is an excuse for theft. I am not going to get into the rights and wrongs of the current shooting in Minneapolis as I think the police have a hard enough time as it is and amazing that no one marches when a black policeman is murdered, or a young Hispanic policeman murdered at point blank range for nothing more than stopping a vehicle…Where is the outrage then?…..
Nothing says more that you are grieving for the death of a young man like vandalism and looting the shops….
Good old fashioned theft…..that’s all this is….
Looters also targeted the Brooklyn Center Walmart and nearby shopping mall.
John Harrington, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, said at a middle-of-the-night news conference that marchers had descended upon the Brooklyn Center Police Department building after the Sunday afternoon shooting. Rocks and other objects were thrown at officers but the protesters had largely dispersed as of 1:15 a.m. Monday, he said. Harrington added that about 20 businesses had been broken into at the city’s Shingle Creek shopping center.
If you want to get the people on your side…its best not to go round stealing the hard earned money and property of others…..and the continued stupidity of calling for the police to be defunded will result in more of this….not less.
