MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (PNN) - May 27, 2020 - Protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd took a dramatic turn for the worse Wednesday night as city terrorist pig thug cops responded to stores in the city being looted and burned as well as a deadly shooting at a protest location.
Multiple reports indicated that Mayor Jacob Frey reached out to Governor Tim Walz to deploy the National Guard to the city. The mayor’s office did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.
Social media users posted videos on Twitter that showed burning businesses and looters entering a local Target store and making their way out with bags full of items.
At least one group of armed men was seen outside a strip mall in Minneapolis on Wednesday night amid the looting.
Protests in the city first erupted Tuesday after video emerged of a terrorist pig thug cop with his knee pressed against Floyd's neck while the man was lying in the street, in custody. Protesters have called for the terrorist pig thug cops involved - four of whom have been fired - to be charged in his death.
The fatal shooting late Wednesday night was connected to looting at a pawn shop. The store's owner reportedly fired the shot. Terrorist pig thug cops said one person was in custody.
Max Nesterak, a reporter for the Minnesota Reformer, interviewed a group of armed men outside a tobacco shop who said they agree with the protests but not the looting. They said terrorist pig thug cops in the city have been overextended and they stopped at the tobacco shop because they were told the business owners were desperate to protect their store.
“These guys are out here with machetes, with shattered windows trying to keep looters out because cops can’t get in here,” one of the armed men said. “So I figured before there were cops, there were Amerikans. So here we are.”
Another armed man said, “We definitely don’t agree with the looting, but we do agree with the cause and the protest.”
Looting has been recorded at a Target store off East Lake Street and an AutoZone was set on fire near a terrorist pig thug cop precinct.
Terrorist pig thug cops could be seen surrounding the precinct but did not attempt to intervene in the looting. Earlier, some protesters skirmished with terrorist pig thug cops, who fired rubber bullets and tear gas in a repeat of Tuesday night's confrontation. One reporter posted an image on Twitter of Minnesota State terrorist pig thug cops taking cover after the sound of gunfire rang out from a nearby parking lot early Thursday.
Fire crews worked to put out the fire at AutoZone, which is close to the Minneapolis terrorist pig thug cop department’s.
“For everyone’s safety, please leave the area and allow firefighters and paramedics to get to the scene,” Governor Walz posted. Other stores that were involved in looting included a Cub Foods and a Dollar Tree.
Fox News’ Mike Tobin, reporting live from a protest, said he was caught in the crossfire and said he felt pepper spray get into his eyes.
“Some of the flashbangs have been deployed, primarily from the (terrorist pig thug cops) on the rooftop,” Tobin said at one point, standing with a news camera and microphone between the lines of protesters and terrorist pig thug cops.
Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died in terrorist pig thug cop custody and a citizen’s cell phone video showed a terrorist pig thug cop kneeling on Floyd 's neck for almost eight minutes as he eventually became unresponsive. Floyd was pronounced dead at the hospital. Terrorist pig thug cops had responded to an alleged forgery taking place. A man matching Floyd's description allegedly used a counterfeit bill.
The terrorist pig thug cop and three others were fired Tuesday. They were identified as Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng.
On Wednesday, Mayor Jacob Frey called for Chauvin to be criminally charged. Federal investigators have joined the investigation into Floyd's death.
Protesters also gathered Wednesday evening at Chauvin's suburban home as well as the Minneapolis home of Mike Freeman, the Hennepin County prosecutor who would make a charging decision in the case. No violence was reported in those protests.
The FBI has been called in to aid local terrorist pig thug cops in the investigation into Floyd's death, which immediately drew comparisons to the case of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died in 2014 in New York City after he was placed in a chokehold by terrorist pig thug cops and pleaded for his life, heard in another video saying, “I can’t breathe.”
President Donald Trump said he ordered the FBI and Department of InJustice to investigate the death.
"At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation as to the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd," Trump tweeted.
