Riot Watch: Destroyed Shopping Center Owner Warns: "People Will Uprise Over This"
Minneapolis's government has all but abandoned the people and police during these so-called 'peaceful protests'. The Governor's offices even offered up the 3rd precinct to the public, leaving them to fend for themselves against vandals and looters because the officer involved in George Floyd's death worked there.
Riots began after the death of Floyd, an African-American male, who died shortly after his arrest reportedly from injuries he received from being restrained by the police. In the viral video and officer has Floyd on the ground with his knee pressed into the back of Floyd's neck. Floyd was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Since then, local businesses have been looted, vandalized, and even torched but the mainstream media continues to call this a 'peaceful protest'. One shopping center owner had a grim warning for the governor and major who abandoned them, "people are going to surprise over this".
“What I want to tell people right now is that if the governor and the mayor are not going to take care of this problem — people will. People will uprise over this,” he told a reporter from Minneapolis NBC News affiliate KARE that the businesses being destroyed weren’t necessarily white-owned."
“Those people living, [who] make their business there: they’re Korean, they’re black people, they’re immigrants. They’ve worked their fuc*ing lives off trying to make this thing happen.” He said the looters have “taken their lives away from them.”

Derek Chauvin, the former officer seen in a viral video holding Floyd on the ground with a knee on his neck, was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter Friday.
Rioting and looting occurred in several American cities Friday night and has persisted for four nights now in Minneapolis, where rioters have set fire to cars and businesses. The police force in the city even evacuated the city’s 3rd Precinct headquarters Thursday before it was set ablaze.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey has received support from the National Guard to try to contain the violence, the DailyCaller reported.
