Watch: Minneapolis police precinct engulfed in flames as protests explode across city

Rioters in Minneapolis protesting the death of George Floyd have escalated their attacks on the city, targeting the Minneapolis Police Department headquarters.

Stunning footage shows the city’s 3rd Precinct engulfed in flames Thursday night. A number of other structures were burned to the ground by protestors across the city after Floyd’s death on Monday, but this was the first direct attack on the city’s police department. 

Violent protests have broken out all across the nation after stunning footage of a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck until he died was released. In Louisville, KY, at least seven people were shot by protestors Thursday night riots.

Donald Trump chastised the chaotic protests on Thursday in a volley of tweets:

I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.

These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts.

Media should not be endorsing what has happened and did happen, National guard should have been called in right away. The riots have nothing to do with what happened to Floyd. It’s all about destruction, stealing causing mayhem and whatever else the low lifes can do to cause carnage. The IQ’s of the people causing the problem now is very low.

The media should be held responsible for endorsing this kind of carnage. The people doing all this goes to show what low IQ’s they have. It has nothing to do with Floyd now.

My one question to these thugs would be this; what did Target and the other retailers you looted and burned have to do with the a White policeman that committed this crime?
Do you realize you have cost many individuals their jobs and possibly some of them are Black citizens?
What you’re doing is just plain stupid.

My theory is—-the colonovirus did not destroy our wonderful country so this is the next try. They need to find our who’s paying most of these protestors and busing them to different areas to create havoc. My husband is sure George Sorrus is involved. Have these destroyers no conscience? They should all have to work to clean up the horrible mess they created. Somebody needs to figure out a way to stop them.

Yes, Antifa funded by wealthy WHITE far left people like George Soros who want a one world system, bent on taking away Americans rights to bear arms, free speech and our religious freedom. The federal government should lock up the Antifa thugs & trace where they their funds are coming from & lock them and the anti-america King pins away. Their citizenships should be taken away.

Mr. George Floyd if necessary should have been arrested, went to court and had a judge
make a decision. Now the police will have to go to court and explain why Mr. Floyd had
to die. This is a very sad situation for Mr. Floyd, the Floyd Family, the police that no longer
have their jobs, the police families, the people that lost their homes, jobs, businesses and
all the people of Minneapolis.

Well said…(above)
Includes all of the picture
And takes no sides, just
Open your eyes and heart and attach your brain. This is a human tragedy…for all…
For a human being and their family and for ALL
The dedicated police officers who have to see and hear what they r not a part of. Anarchy is sub human, reptilian brain activiry and only hurts your own living space and hurts people who have lost their businesses….think people…objectively please.

If people truly wanted to honor Floyd they are going about it the wrong way. By setting fires, looting stores is not honoring him at all. I think these people who are destroying their own city, are just using Floyds death as a reason to act stupid. You would think if these are adults causing this destruction, fires and looting, they would know better. If these were there own business, how would they feel if people did that to their businesses?

I have said the same thing for many years. Harry Reid pass a law when he was in charged and it came back to bite in the butt. Vote Trump for four more years.

This also could be the beginning of the most talked about civil war.

This type of mentality is totally wrong! The Floyd family has denounced this behavior and know that George would not want this happening! To destroy property, loot stores and burn the American Flag is not a peaceful protest! Those doing the damage and looting need to be arrested and put in jail! They should be required to suffer the consequences of their actions. The police officer has been arrested and will suffer the consequences of his actions. He obviously does not deserve to be a policeman because of his bias and behavior that’s been going on for some time! Seems he should have been fired before this happened. There are plenty of good officers out there but I fear for their lives now because of this one. That’s why this same scenario keeps happening over and over! Criminals that do wrong, officers that do wrong and some citizens that do wrong in these cases! Stop and think before you act!!

Well you have to realize it’s been a week now and I do not believe any one of those four officers have been arrested for anything they were fired that’s it so this city is really asking for trouble obviously and I will guarantee you it will go Nationwide so bring out the Army bring out what you need what you’re going to find out this ain’t going away until they fix what they’ve done it’s way too obvious three out of those four cops should be tried for murder and the fourth one at least as an accomplist or there will not be too much rest in this country for a while

Nothing justifies the destruction caused by protesters. Those doing the damage just use this as excuse and could care less about the individual who died. When do you see this sort of criminal activities by whites when blacks kill a white individual, which by the way happens on a daily basis. There is no excuse for what that officer did anymore than there is of the action of demonstrators. Protests do not need to be violent.

He was arrested & charged with 2nd or 3rd degree murder & manslaughter.
He is in jail.
His wife has filed divorce papers.
Other cops may also be included in these or other charge.

Why the rush to judgement? Wait for all the facts to come out. Did Floyd swallow a bag of contraband, how do you know the cop wasn’t putting all his weight on the knee that wasn’t across his shoulder blades, etc. Bunch of experts without facts and look what ‘s happening.

Bad health could have caused him to have a heart attack or being on drugs could have attributed to his death. The officer has probably held many criminals down in that fashion before and not had that happen. We don’t have all the facts yet. It is up to a court of law to gather those facts. I am terribly sad for ALL those associated with this tragedy. So many are focusing on all the bad that can come out of this try focusing on the good that could come out of it.

sad about george floyd.but it is not an excuse to burn loot. just get all videos captured from the area.and see the faces of those involved in these riot.and arrest them.police should police.you deter by breaking up these illegal riots.you announce 2 maybe three times.to protest legally or get arrested.this is no way to protest.you should be able to get with today,s cameras,a lot of good information.such as faces and there actions.and then arrest them.and yes arrest and investigate this horrible police officers,or officers actions.

Well, democrats incited the people to riot and lo and behold the citizens are burning the democratic cities down. Shoot, if I owned a business in any democratic city I’d pack it up and move it out. Seems democrats don’t want stores, or businesses much less the jobs they provide so why stay there? Move some place that does want them. It wasn’t the businesses that caused that poor man’s death, it wasn’t the owners of those businesses, but it is the democrats fault for claiming crap that just is not true. Out of 228 deaths caused by police only 31 were black. For every almost 8 people killed one is black the other 7 almost 8 are what is termed white. The ratio for black on black is about 95%. Out of 2,870 murdered blacks 2,570 were black on black. Now give the democrats a voice and they scream the whites, the police are the ones killing them off. Why do these same people not riot when one of the black gang members drives by and kills that little child of 5 or 6? Where is the outrage? Hear the crickets? I do.

How long is this going to be allowed? If this terrorism is allowed to spill into neighborhoods all over the country then the 2nd Amendment will be applied and these criminals will be killed along with many law abiding citizen victims! Call in the Guard now !

This is just what the Left liberal Democrat Terrorist Cult wants, anarchy and mob rule to further their strive to Destroy the Republic gain power and Rule all of us Serfs or Peons. Once that is gained the followers and radicals will be the first fodder to fed to the Prison camps and used as slave labor or shot which ever come first.

I’m sorry for the mans death! But these things that are burning and looting need to be found and punished!! They not only destroyed the stores and business but hurt individuals that work in those places! I’m sure they don’t work for the fun of it, they work to feed their families!!!
These rioters sound like Antifa things!!! Can’t call them human, wild animals so what do we call them!!!

DOESN’T IT SEEM STRANGE HOW ALL OF THE SUDDEN ALL THESE OTHER CITIES HAVE PROTESTS (RIOTS, CALL THEM WHAT THEY ARE) ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED IN MINNEAPOLIS, ON THE SAME DAY AS THE RIOTS STARTED IN MINNEAPOLIS ????? IT SEEMS THAT THIS WAS A PLANNED MOVEMENT BY THE LIBERAL SOCIALIST DEM0-RATS, AND THEIR HATE ORGANIZATIONS LIKE ANTIFA AND OTHER HATE AMERICA GROUPS LIKE THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, AND OTHERS TO DIVERT ATTENTION FROM THE UPCOMING ELECTIONS AND CAUSE MASS CONFUSION. THIS WAS NOTHING BUT A CRIMINAL ACTION BY THE MINIONS WHO WERE STUPID ENOUGH TO BURN THEIR OWN BUSINESSES AND HOMES. BUT THE BIGGEST THING IS THAT WHEN YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THE SIGNS AND THE PEOPLE, THESE THINGS WERE NOT JUST PRODUCED IN A RUSHED FASHION BUT WERE PRODUCED IN ADVANCE. WAKE UP PEOPLE OR YOU YOU WILL SUFFER THE EVILS OF VENEZUELA, AND CUBA AND THE CRUSHED LIVES OF THE CITIZENS OF NORTH KOREA AND CHINA.

Whats behind all this riots and destruction, back when Trayon was killed, our masterminds went to work, Obama, Soras, Eric Holder started this paid riot destruction, they went togther and paid violence in America Cities to destroy America. A reporter ask a rioter why she was there at one of this violents, and “she replied I don’t know, I get paid $15.00 bucks an hour for being here.” Well the liberal Mob decided after a while too many were taking advantage of free money, so the turned the gangs into groups and paid the groups $1500.0 instead of by the hour, So this is the reason we have this terrable destruction of our beautiful cities and seems no one is paying attention to where this IS ALL COMING FROM so as long as Soras, Holder and out dear Obama are around free there Will be more and more of it AS THE GROUPS ARE BECOMING LARGER AND LARGER. WISE UP LAWMAKERS AND GO TO THE BOTTOM/ROOTS OF THIS DISASTER.
OUR CONSTITUTIONAL SECOND AMENDMENT LAW DOES NOT COVER TI KIND OF CRAP AND DESTRUCTION, THATS NOT FREEDOM OF SPEECH, SO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT QUICK, WE HAVE ENOUGH PROBLEMS WITHOUT LUNITECTS BRING MORE OF THIS KIND OF MISERY TO BUSINESSES, STREET ClEANING AND DESTRUCTION SO PUT THE THREE AND THEIR big MONEY BEHIND BARS WITH NO CELL PHONES, VISITORS IN ISOLATION AND I BET IT STOPS WITHOUT THE PAY FOR THESE LOOSE RUM-DUMS.

Where is the NAACP after they supported the protests. Where are they now and why aren’t they telling these people that this is not the correct way of handling the situation. This needs to be brought under control by any means necessary.
