What began as a peaceful protest, with hundreds of demonstrators marching down the streets of Minneapolis to call out police brutality, escalated into an all-out riot complete with razed structures and looting.

On Wednesday night, Minneapolis police contended with unruly rioters who were hellbent on taking their anger out on society.

Just one day prior to the chaos and vandalism, people marched in solidarity during the “I can’t breathe” protest in memory of George Floyd, who was killed by police this week.

While some spurts of violence broke out Tuesday, it paled in comparison to what happened next.

Protests boiled over into Wednesday and anger was re-directed toward police, private property and corporate businesses.

  1. THE LOOTERS ARE CRIMINAL ASSHOLE SCUMBAG GHETTO SCUM THAT JUST WANT TO STEAL, LOOT, DESTORY, AND WHINE. THE TARGET STORE DID NOT HURT THE MAN, THE POLICE DID! ATTACK THE POLICE, ATTACK THE POLICE STATION, QUIT BEING PUSSY AND ATTTACKING UNARMED STORES THAT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE KILLING. IF THE PROTESTORS ARE MAD ATTACK THE PEOPLE WHO DID IT….THESE SCUM ARE JUST USING A DEATH AS AN EXCUSE TO STEAL AND BE EVIL ASS SHITS AND SCUMBAGS! THE NATIONAL GAURD SHOULD PUT 12 MACHING GUNS ON THE ROOFS AND KILL ABOUT 500 OF THESE SCUMBAG CRIMINAL PUNKS THAT ARE DESTROTYING THE PRIVATE PROPERTY OF PEOPLE WHO DID NOTHING WRONG, BECUASE THEY ARE SCUMBAG CRIMINALS AND A DISEASE ON OUR GREAT COUNTRY. SHOOT ROBBERS AND THIEVES IN THEIR HEADS TODAY !

    1. They should start arresting these scum bags,where are the police our elected officials are telling them to stand down dems to be sure they want this to advance their agenda and rule over us lets wake up time to get our shit together call in the state militia end this bullshit once and for all.

  2. Us niggas is gonna burn Minneapolis and LA down to the ground. We’s gonna kick all the fuckin cops asses for what they did to our braatha George Flyod. You’s honky white ass mafuckas better stay off the streets or
    your sorry asses get hurt too. Come to Minneapolis and LA niggas and get free TVs, stereos and Playstations. We’s looting the fuckin stores, cocksuckas. Don Lemon is a honky ass nigga faggot. Us good niggas don’t like queer boys. Chrissy Cuomotherfucker is a faggot too. Mafucka got shit for brains. Yay niggas! You go braathas.

    1. You sure are a bunch of lowlife scumbags! What happened to George is WRONG, but you anyone who thinks like you should be shot on sight. You are absolutely the epitome of what the word NIGGER stands for! So in closing…..FUCK YOU!

  3. WE best do some think these scum bags will branch out into our neighborhoods and burn our homes not caring if you are white or black stand down and give them free reign and they will not only loot and burn but start killing law abiding citizens.

  4. In memory of George my as*! Any excuse to go “shoppin” will do. And until people start callin it what it is and do something to stop it, it’ll only get worse!!

    1. That is correct! It has been getting worse since the Detroit Riots! And look at Detroit now! Biggest slum yu ever saw !

  5. This isn’t helping. It won’t bring him back, or comfort his daughter and family. Make the officers pay for their crime. DONT destroy your home environment. The covid virus has destroyed enough. Help this case make it to a real trial.. Help his family. Stop destroying our world. My prayers continue.

  6. What I wonder, is who is going to replace the buildings, cars etc that was destroyed by the thugs. These people had nothing to do with George Floyd’s death, but they are the one’s paying the price for what happened. Every time they have a protest like this, we have the looting and destroying private property. As far as I know, the people who owned the property destroyed were never repaid for the damage. Some body should have to. Some of these people will not have the money to replace what these thugs destroyed.

    1. And every time this sort of thing happens, they loot and burn so that police are afraid to arrest any one, or tell any one ” this is wrong ”
      These scum bags want us to let them just do what ever they want, when they want!
      We are supposed to be intimidated by these thugs!
      Police have enough problems trying to keep the peace and then you have people resisting arrests or don’t follow the commands they are asked to do. Yes if you are questioned by police, teachers or someone in authority, please be polite, follow orders and you will not have a problem. When we don’t do as we are told ( and we all know what is right and what is wrong ) that is when our problems start.

  7. Oh, this IS WHY BLACK LIVES MATTERS, free stuff, the right to riot, destroy, burn and plain olé act like SAVAGES!

  8. I saw people’s faces that were looting so they should be arrested !! This is Thug Mob behavior and should Not be tolerated . Yes I hope the cop who bent down on George Floyd’s neck Should Be charged and thrown in jail , but the behavior of the thugs needs to be Charges as well . No more letting these crowds move forward where the police draw a line . They need to use mega tear gas and rubber bullets ! Enough is Enough !

  9. Some of these people just looking for a reason to protest, burn and loot and cause mayhem. Look at Detroit Michigan. That used to be a nice town, and it could have been a nicer town, but the looting and burning every devil’s night, or for any night they could find a reason, has made the place unlivable. Some people just love to rip and tear at everything and everyone.
    Why can we just let the investigation take precedent and if there is an injustice deal with it legally! We all have the same legal rights, but what is happening in Minneapolis, and other cities, like throwing rocks at the police, burning and looting is just an excuse to steal and cause other people to suffer. You should be ashamed for raising the kind of children, who do this sort of thing. I think it is the parents who tell their kids ” You don’t have to listen to them cops ” that is causing this kind of backlash. People have no respect for authority, like police, teachers, and their own parents! What a terrible thing for this to happen to George Floyd, but we need to deal with it in a civilized manner, and not like a bunch of thugs which is what we are doing!

  10. The mayor, the chief of police, the district attorney the representative in The House for that District should arrest, put behind bars to the police officers, do not protect them or you see what happens? Do you want WENDY’S pay the price? YOU, THE Mayor, the Chief of Police, The District Attorney are guilty of not put behind bars immediatelly, No? Then pay Auto Zone for protecting the cpolice officers criminals.

  11. None of the people that are looting and burning care one bit about the man that died. They just saw it as a great opportunity to steal and tear up their own community. Then they wonder why their neighborhoods are like they are. Why is it that such a simple reason for this behavior is never owned up to. These people need to be jailed and made an example of i.e. pictures in newspaper with a list of what they did. That may make them think twice in the future when they decide to loot and destroy businesses that have nothing to do with the situation. Live forever in your own squalor you disgusting low life thieves.

  12. Last time I checked, passing a fake $20 wasn’t a capital offense. You guys should be ashamed to call yourselves human.

  13. It seems there has been some black people that the cops shot a few years ago like the one black woman that was shot 7 times as I recall there has been 5 to 6 incidents the cops that did the killing didnt get punished. So do you think thats a right??? There has been polite protests before but nothing was done but why?? So if these protests was like the others no doubt these 4 policemen would be set free just like the other happenings. I see whats going on the people finally got fed up with the legal system not doing their job in the right way so they had to take matters in their own hands to wake up the country for the wrong doings our cops have done & continue doing. Its a wake up call called another Boston Tea Party for attention. In my years of life I havent seen so many corrupt & dirty cops in just the past short years. Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!! Enough said!!!!!!!
